Reward people for posting answers to forum questions in a manner similar to (or integrated with) the developerWorks Autho Achievement Recognition Program.
Even better, users could vote on forum answers, helping readers when there are multiple answers, and authors getting a certain number of votes get recognition for ...
Answers posted in the forums can be great candidates for wiki articles. Make it easy to
create wiki articles from answered forum posts. For example, provide a button in the forum post that
opens a new wiki article in the corresponding wiki.
It would also be nice if I could see all of my posts across the different forums & community, etc.
When someone posts a question in the forum, search the corresponding product wikis for related articles that might answer it. Suggest links right as the forum post is created.
It would be great to have the ability to be able to establish a personal connection (albeit virtual) with others within the Lotus Community in a more personal and private fashion - that is, of course, mutual on both sides. At the moment our connections seem to be established by ...
Can we please set up a shared calendar populated with all related events? So that there is one resource to go to, to check what's coming up next, to check what events are happening nearby? We could do something on tungle.me or google docs. One more feature would be for community ...
I read the Lotus Wiki's and completely forget that I am entitled to make my own contributions there. Help Lotus encourage participation and expert posts by community members by putting a large, friendly, "Contribute Now!" button at the top of every page. It can say "Post your own article" or something of that ...
Add a big button to the home pages of the product forums and wikis that people can use to submit design suggestions or to report problems. The wikis have a feedback link now, but it's at the bottom of the page and is easy to miss. Make the button the same in both spaces for ease of use.
Advertise the chat capability in the Lotus Technical Information and Education community on Greenhouse.
Plenty of people already have the Greenhouse Community added to their Sametime client, but I have found some people did not even know you could do this or that the settings are available in Greenhouse. BleedYellow is great, but I do find some IBM folks via Greenhouse instead.
Allow registered users to chat with the authors of wiki and forum posts. Show when authors are online. Provide a profile setting to allow authors to control whether they are available by chat.
Provide a "big picture" navigation to the different places to find information (for example Greenhouse, wikis, forums, dw, knowledge base, etc.)
I would love to have a central point of access from where you can access and search all of the different IBM resources that are out there for Lotus. Currently you have DW, IBM support site, Greenhouse, Wiki's and the Business Partner site and you need multiple ID's to access ...
Make the forums easier to search by adding a checkbox in the post area for:
This would be especially useful for end users, so they could have an easy way to find Notes client solutions without having to be scared away by posts about actual ...
When doing searches I woul love to have a global search option acros all repositories that allows you to limit results to specific repositories. For instance search for just Wiki & forum posts or for Wiki posts & technotes.
Repositories should include all info resources currently available. See also "Provide ...
Have an option to show questions that have been resolved - I believe this was mentioned in the monthly meeting
It would be nice when a user is posting to the forum that for example if they enter "DAOS", it would bring up related postings so that they would not repost something that someone already posted or this way for those that don't do searches before they post their questions, ...
Organise a series of webinars , Meetings , Spotlights in Newsletters , recorded presentations from Business Partners. This should not be a product sales pitch but should provide value in the area that the SME is involved in ( and may hence add indirect value add for product feature)
Add the Facebook Like (iFrame-version) to Wiki Post footers to allow readers to click-to-share useful articles and help promote contributions beyond the typical reach of the "yellow bubble".
Have an option to show questions that have not been resolved but answered
Have an option to show only the unanswered questions within the different forums & community - this would eliminate the unnecessary reposting of unanswered questions because it is no longer at the top of the list...
Ability to chat with the author of an article/post and to save the chat history to share with community
Ability to chat with the author of an article/post and to save the chat history to share with community. It would be nice if you are just given a save chat option that would automatically take the chat history and save it as a response post to the ...
