Allow sametime settings be saved when switching IDs

: Sametime / Other
: notes_client, administration, sametime, sametime_settings, release_8
Deb Carpenter1070 - 07 2008 / (0)
Our user community has been in the practice of switching IDs (to either special IDs for security purposes or user IDs). In Release 8, when a user switches IDs, all Sametime settings are lost and the user must reset everything and log back into Sametime.
As I understand it, ...

Allow users to change their password through the sametime client

: Sametime / Other
: password
Carl Tyler5343 - 31 2007 / (1)
Most applications enable users to change their password if they login, not Sametime.  This should be an option in the Sametime client.

Group IM Address (e.g. Help Desk, Sales)

: Sametime / Other
: newidea
Doug Moore273 - 12 2007 / (0)
The same way I can mail to a group email address in Notes Mail ("Help Desk", for example), I should be able to IM a group. The business justification for this is that there are certain functions where it would be annoying if an IM didn't get answered immediately (e.g. ...

Wish Sametime Chat was built into core Domino product

: Sametime / Other
: sametime, domino
Wayne Scarano223 - 09 2009 / (0)
 The meeting server has taken a new path and many of us have moved on to other products (gotomeeting, etc.).   However, integrated chat is considered mission critical and essential to any product in the Collaboration space (think Google Wave).  
So please either rewrite a simple chat for Domino ...

Let me open Sametime from the systray icon.

: Sametime / Other
: icons, sametime
Melissa Anez849 - 29 2007 / (0)
Having my Sametime list built into Notes 8 has proved to be a mixed blessing. I'm greedy for the screen space in my Notes client, so I leave the sidebar completely minimized most of the time.  When I want to start a conversation with someone over Sametime, I find myself ...

Create a Skype Connector for Sametime Client

: Sametime / Other
: skype, sametime_connect, integration, voip, telephony, sametime
David Greenstein275 - 21 2010 / (0)
Create a connector to enable one to call buddy via skype.  User can update their skype info if/as needed and expose it via location info.  Consider as an option below the phone icon (Sametime call, Skype call) when info is available. 

Enable Sametime notifications from servers or workflow to Domino users/groups

: Sametime / Other
: sametime, notification, automatic
David Killingsworth4000 - 18 2008 / (0)
I run a linux server with cPanel.  One of the cPanel configurations is to set an AOL IM ID for the server.  When a high severe issue occurs on the server, the server will login to AOL IM with the credentials and send my personal AOL IM a notification, then ...

Esc - close one chat at a time

: Sametime / Other
: sametime
Oscar Frykholm333 - 28 2007 / (0)
Also in 7.5.1, where you can have all open chats in one window. Make Esc close only the current chat, not all chats!

Sametime Out of Office

: Sametime / Other
: out of office, sametime, email
John Wafer143 - 18 2012 / (0)
Allow Sametime users to see if someone is Out of Office (instead of just unavailable).  This would save a lot of time and effort for users who currently try to get hold of somoene but only find out they are OOF by sending and email.   As part of the ...

IBM should provied an Open Space for all developers to share thier Sametime Plug-Ins with others

: Sametime / Other
: sametime, plug-in, plugin
David Vasta2524 - 30 2007 / (1)

Like Apple has space here you can share your open widgets I think IBM should have a web page here they share Sametime Plug-Ins. I would especially like for them to share the plug-ins they use to pitch Sametime with. While ...


Sametime IM and Gateway servers should be split off and simplified from the meeting server functions

: Sametime / Other
: sametime gateway chat im
Craig Wiseman24988 - 06 2010 / (0)
Obviously the impressive growth in functionality of the meeting server part of sametime in 8.5 is very cool. However, there's a concomitant huge increase in configuration & hardware requirements.
I'd like to see the chat & IM gateway portions split off and simplified so they could be deployed ...

Create a $100m VC fund for IBM/Lotus UC2 applications

: Sametime / Other
: vc, uc, unified, communications, partner, sametime
Carl Tyler5343 - 13 2008 / (0)
IBM recently announced they will be spending $1Billion dollars in the Unified Communications space. I have no idea how IBM will spend this money, but it would be great if they set up a fund along the lines that apple just did with VC funding of $100m for apple SDK solutions. ...

Add a Subject field to a chat

: Sametime / Other
: sametime, chat, subject, field
Zoltan Szabo4849 - 14 2011 / (0)
Add a field to a chat where we can put the subject of the chat. I think You are also faced with the problem to find the right chat in the history. If there is a subject it is easy to find or remember. If it has ...

Sametime Connect integration with Notes

: Sametime / Other
: sametime notes integration presence
Alexey Zimarev1051 - 15 2009 / (0)
It is very strange why Sametime Connect client has integration features for Outlook, Sharepoint and Office from Microsoft but very little possibilities with Notes. In addition a lot of people experience issues even using integrated client when Sametime is using LDAP as a directory. I think Sametime Connect client that ...

Include local time in Sametime window

: Sametime / Other
: time, locale, location, sametime
Richard Jeans99 - 26 2010 / (0)
If you have a sametime chat going with a colleague in another country, it would be useful to see at a glance what time it is on their ST window. 
It may not be appropriate to suggest that meeting, or you may be keeping someone at work when they want to go home.  

Change where automatic startup is set for Sametime Connect

: Sametime / Other
: sametime, connect, startup
David Brown297 - 29 2007 / (0)
Provide a more intuitive location for the startup option in Sametime Connect or utilize the Startup folder (at least for wintel installations), instead. The current location in the "Contact List" section:
File->Preferences->Contact List->Launch Sametime at System Startup
...seems like an afterthought and is not easily discoverable by end-users.

Links in Sametime Business Cards to view user's Lotus Connections dogear, blogs, activities, communties or profile.

: Sametime / Other
: connections businesscard
Phil Warner445 - 08 2009 / (0)
When viewing someone's business card, it would be great to find out more about their work via Connections. If there's no Connections installation, the blackbox facility could be used to link to one or more user-defined web pages with profile-type information.

Tabbed chats, all not visible (ST8)

: Sametime / Other
: annoyance
Oscar Frykholm333 - 14 2008 / (0)
With several chats open, some of them are "hidden" below the fold (see arrow). You have to manually move the fold down to see the other chats. Couldn't this be automatically fixed?

Installation of sametime on linux with symbolic links to the linux/latest directory

: Sametime / Other
: linux, latest, sametime, symbolic, links
Christian Güdemann70 - 30 2008 / (0)
During the installation of sametime on linux the installer checks where the domino server resists and use this directory information for creationg symbolic links. The result is that links are pointing to somthing like /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/linux/080020/theLink.
This is bad because upgrading the domino server breaks this links and the sametimer ...

Provide integration with Twitter in Sametime / Notes8 plug-in

Stuart Mcintyre1684 - 19 2007 / (0)
More and more IBMers, partners and customers are becoming active on Twitter, especially with Chris Miller's great suggestion of using it to enable a stream of information from Lotusphere.  Twitter is proving to be a great way to keep up to date with contacts, to hear about the ...
