When you open an email, whether received internally or externally it would be great if all the attachment/s were positioned in a pane at the top of the email (I believe Outlook does this and DWA does it but puts at the bottom which I'm ok with). I am sick ...
Some of my users have a hard time to understand the options they get when double-clicking (or right-clicking) an attachment. Particularly the 'View' option. So I suggest renaming this to 'Preview'.
Apple uses this terminology also for previewing files with built-in software vs. actual editors.
If cursor is in the to/cc/bcc field and you want to add an attachment, you get an error saying you have to click the body of the message to add an attachment.
This error is quite annoying, and unnecessary.
Why not just move the cursor to the beginning ...
I want to be able to right click on an attachment in an email message, select Copy, and then paste the attachment into a new message. Even in 8.5 I often get other pieces of the original email together with the attachment. The only way to reliably do it is ...
Why not being able to create file-links the same way as attachments?
Most/all enterprises have fileshares and today the most common negative feedback we get from our users on notes is the complexity to create file-links. This also genereates a lot of unessesary attachemnts in mails.
Why not have ...
An annoying feature of Notes that I would dearly love to change is as follows...
You know how when you open an attachment on a mail document, it opens it in the temp directory under the Documents and Settings\UserName\Temp\notes???? folder? Often you forget after making modifications to ...
When converting Outlook users to Notes one feature asked for consistently in my experience is the ability to wrap an e-mail thread into an attachment and send it to someone. I am not talking about the mail history but something more.
I am not sure how it works in ...
After saving attachments to disk, I would like to have a dialog where I can select either to run/open the files saved or to open the destination folder.
Why not a download list as in Firefox put in the sidebar?!
Needs to be optional and integrated into policies.
The attachment viewer by Bob Balfes demonstrates that the current attachment viewer in Notes is pretty much out of date.
Just compare the 2 functions (see image).
We need an attachment viewer that can open the files in read mode within the current pane or an additional pane....
When you right click you can Delete All and Save and Delete All, it would be great if I could Open All or Edit All.
How about being able to set up a default action for attachments, such that if you double-click the atta, instead of showing the Propeties box selection of actions (which, by the way is not the same as the list in right-click), that default action happens: one of Open/View/Save..... If the ...
Currently when a user Opens an attachment in Notes, say a Word document, the temporary file Notes creates isn't read-only. This means the user could spend 5 hours making updates to the file in Word, hit Ctrl-S which saves changes to the temporary file. Then when they close the e-mail ...
The default behavior to "reply/forward with internet-style" will delete the attachement file from original. There is no option to remain attachment file.
If there is the option to remain/delete attachment file same as notes style, that would be very useful/freindly for users.
Let's add some intelligence to attachment processing. The way Notes handles attachments hasn't changed in 20 years. It might have been ahead of its time back then, but it needs updating now.
When double-clicking an attachment, the client should automatically either open or edit the attachment based on the ...
Notes should be able to warn users when they try to send an email with certain words that could indicate an attachment, but there is no file attached.
(This has already been implemented by the Gnome team with Evolution, and works quite well.)
This works by checking ...
Quite simple : when you save an attachment to, let's say, your desktop you need to go the your desktop to open it. No way of save and open the attachment. Not very handy, is it?
There are many a times when we compose an email in lotus saying "Please find attached" or "Attachment is available" etc and forget to attach the required file!
This goes a long way and can have high impact / embarassment if it's an important attachment for a customer or ...
When we are sending a mail to a recepient which needs to have an attachment and sometimes in a hurry we forget and send the mail without attaching the required files.
There should be a popup which should say "You have not included attachment but have mentioned in your ...
If I create a new email with an attachment from my local disk or a network share, I will have the file twice (one in the files system and second in my notes database) on my system, after sending and storing the sent email. What if I could choose that ...
When sending out e-mails with attachments it may be that only some of the people may need to see the attachments. I would like to propose that as well as "To", "cc" and "Bcc" there is a further send option called (say) FYI. This would only send the body of ...
When you click on an attachment in a document, you have the options to open or edit the attachment. Wherever you click, the attachment will open/edit in the same application. It would be nice if the application that open an attachment for reading is configurable.
So, by example, i can ...
