It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to have contacts in a separate database that isn't replicated to the server automatically. Sync'ing them just seems like a absolute kludge.
There are ways to address the security issues with allowing delegation of contacts. Given the vast creativity of the community ...
Exclude contacts with missing mail address from the personal address book from the "type ahead"-function ? To hide those contacts from the contact list is not the problem, but these contacts are still listed at the type-ahead and can´t be hidden. Any suggestions how to avoid this "feature" ...

Option to synchronize contacts should be available in either the scriptable setup (ie: rep.contacts=1 in text file) or better yet, via a desktop policy.
Currently, on version 8.0.2 of Lotus Notes, it is enabled on a client by client basis. For some reason, some of the clients have it disabled ...
When I click on a Sametime contact, I can view their business card.
I would like to have the ability to click any links within the business card (Blog address, email address, or phone number) or at least be able to select and copy text.
Currently, there is ...
We are beginning to roll out the 8.0.1 client. It is becoming apparent that we need to disable adding names to "Recent Contacts". The feature is causing more problems (i.e ambiguous names) than the convenience is worth. I would like to do this using a Policy, but the option to restrict the adding of ...
Ability to add recipients to your personal address book from an email you receive that contains other recipients.
Right now you can only add the sender.
Today when you click Add Contact, it brings up a dialog box which contains a few fields filled in, you then click ok, and behind the scenes a new contact document is added to names.nsf. I'd like to see this changed to: click Add Contact, a new contact record is ...
To programmaticaly add a todo item, a calendar item or contact is a big challange, even if you know the scriptlibs in the mailfile. Please add a api (either as a build in or as a template to inherit in my app) to work with calendar items, task and contacts, ...

For some time now the Personal Address Book in Notes has been separate to the mail file. To synchronise contacts with web clients or mobile clients until R8 users have had to manually synchronise the contacts and they are placed in a hidden view. In R8 there's the automatic synchronisation ...
When adding a birthday/anniversay to a contact, there should be a button to add it to calendar as a recurring (75 years) reminder.
Although, now that I look, these fields are only initially available in the popup... OK AND the birthday and anniversary fields should NOT be hidden by default....
This is a pre-requisite for my idea for a Plaxo connector.
Notes has no pre-defined classes to access the Address book as an address book: only as a Notes database.
We need a prope class definition for the Notes address book
Users copy company contacts from the domain directory into their personal contacts db for synch with hand-helds. Need automated updates of phone, address and name changes (marriage, etc) from company directory into personal contacts. Synch should be one way to protect company domain directory data. Synch should preserve extra data ...
In 8.5.1, if you right-click on the sender's name in the header there is an option to Add Sender to Contacts.
However, this option is not available inside the email itself. I use previews (so it's not as big a deal for me), but many old-school users don't use ...
An option to delegate Mail, Calendar or ToDo without granting access to contacts would be great. Especially if users also maintain their private contacts in Lotus Notes they probably don´t want other users to access their contacts.
When a company changes name, moves to another location or change telephonenumber, it would be nice to have a solution in the address book, to change this information on multiple contacts. (The same function as More|Categorize..., but with more fields to edit.)
I know I can do that, but it is not easy and views and forms are not optimized for the sidebar.
You know the problem..
A user asks you "Why does my mailbox icon display that I have 4 unread emails, but there are no unread emails in my inbox or folders?"
The answer is often because:
when I select 'Add Senter to Contacts..' in the upcoming dialog there is no option to add some additional comment for this contact. I still have to open my contacts applicatio, locate the person, open it and add WHY I have added this person to my contacts in the first place.

I often use the "more.add sender to contacts" action in the memo form. I do like the control window to update more information for the contact at that moment. But it's annoying to have to klick the "contact was successfully added" window away with OK. This window gives the impression ...
Release 8 has a new feature on the type-ahead for email addresses. It records email addresses on all those received and sent in the new view, "Recent Contacts", located in the Personal Address book. It is nice to have the type-ahead feature which gives you a history dropdown, similar to ...

Specifically, provide a mail rule to enable your synchronised contacts to be used as a whitelist. Thus, any mail from a sender who is not in your ...
iNotes should have the import/export function Contact list same as gmail or yahoo mail!
When addressing an email, it's often nice to include the name as well as the address. e.g. to send to:
John Doe <email@example.com>
Notes just picks the "e-mail address" field to include in the header. Generally this is just the address, so your e-mail doesn't include any names in ...
This does already exist in 8.5.3 for recent contacts but not for groups (nor regular contacts). Very handy if you need to mail to certain (often large) groups like for announcements, but don't want to take the risk to mail this group by mistake for non-announcements.
The 'Type to Find' feature in the Open menu, should return results from the local addressbook, so that its possible to search for contacts directly from the Open menu.
I would like to see the following functionality on ST client:
From your contact list on side bar, right click over a contact and select share/forward contact with another existing contact from your personal/public list
When I log into instant messaging, there is no way to add contacts - it just says show/hide instant contact list
You can import Contacts from a .csv file (in the More menu). Why can't you export them?
I know you can do this with the Notes client but not all customers who use LotusLive Notes want to install it.
Why can't I get a connector to sync my Notes address book with Plaxo?
