Make a STOP button next to the Open button that does exactly what Ctrl+Break does. Right now, that's just the super-secret keystroke for power users only.
UPDATE: Just to clarify, there IS a Stop button in the toolbar today. But it's not useful, because when your client is in ...
[Idea comes live from a Paul Mooney and Susan Bulloch session a Lotusphere]
The administrator can restrict the size of attachments that can be sent using the server. The openNTF mail experience template enforces that limit at the client. It would be a good if the IBM mail template ...
Just as we have agents for "before new mail arrives" and "after new mail arrives," we should have agents for "before replication begins" and "after replication completes." These should be executable by both client and servers. (Note: they could also be just database-level events, similar to PostOpen -- but the ...
As the user, designer, administrator of our Notes environment, I frequently have all 3 loaded.
I'd really like an app/db block list so that when I have the "Debug Lotusscript" option enabled and I need to check my mail, or something else, that I could have a list of db/apps ...
In earlier versions of Notes you could use ctrl+tab to switch between the tabs you have open in the client (i.e. the databases and documents currently open in the ui). This functionality is missing from the Eclipse based Notes 8 client.
As far as I understand ctrl+tab is a ...
Sometimes I want only some paragraphs of text to be printed, and not the whole document. If the documents are large, I almost need a whole tree just to have those 2 paragraphs on paper.
If I want some text of a memo next to me (f.e. if I'm solving ...
I often have to forward several emails at once. When doing so, the forward flag only gets added to the first email. It would be helpful to know that each was forwarded especially when going back through old emails or archives.
...and not have tasks running in the background like notes2.exe, which often result in unsuccessfull client restarts og db fixup if computer is restarted before tasks has closed down grazefully.
An idea is to have a prompt with a process bar/circle indicating the Notes Client is closing, like:...
Checkbox (and radio button) fields should have user-definable limits and the text of each item in the list should wrap within the confines of those limits.
It royally sucks to have a nicely formatted table go horribly wrong when a checkbox option gets too long and throws off your ...
I want to be able to select some or all of the text in a view row and copy it to the clipboard, then paste it somewhere as text.
Right now, click-and-drag grabs the entire view entry for dragging to a folder. Obviously, I don't want to lose that ...
It would be nice to not need 5 or more location documents for all my emails.
While I can have one inbox, I can not have multiple outgoing email names/addresses from that one box, thus 5 different location docs/dbs, etc.
I can make personal stationery, but not personal email addresses?
RAM and network are big dependencies, but application speed is the single most important feature of any software application. If IBM could make Lotus Notes the fastest email client on the planet they would surely grab back a huge chunk of market share. This is as basic as it gets.... we ...
If you use different IDs for your admin und "normal" work, it would be great if you could start two clients, one with the admin, one with the normal ID.
This was (and is) possible with the basic client via starting "nlnotes.exe =Path/To/notes.ini". I want that also ...
I want it to be possible to select all text in properties boxes, like the database path, servername etc.
The 8.x Standard client should have a standard and easy way to troubleshoot crashes/problems. Now, when the Expeditor-part of the Standard client crashes it gives a pug-ugly and more importantly USELESS and huge error box (like the attached image). Troubleshooting the cause is very painful (like this)! When the ...
In Notes 6.5, 7, and Notes 8 Basic clients, you can set policies that determines users' IM settings like so (see screen shots).
This made set up and config easy for users.
AFAIK,, these policies don't apply to Notes 8 Standard users. ...
Based on some recent experience the Notes client does a very poor job of rendering HTML mail. As far as I can tell the problem relates to the clients interpretation of inline css.
Assuming that an email contains compliant CSS 1.0 instructions and XHTML I'd expect it to render well and currently it ...
Notes 8.0 needs to have Sametime setup policies. Currently there is not a way to migrate over exisiting Notes 6.5 / 7.0 Sametime configurations nore are there any Sametime policies that can be assigned to Notes 8.0 users to accomplish this.
The Mac client lacks the ability to flag text within a rich text field as passthru HTML. What's more, when you're editing an existing document that contains passthru HTML (presumably done on a Windows client), even touching the existing passthru is an invitation to a world of hurt.
Based upon the comments of many people doing upgrades to 8.5.1 It seems like opportunity still exists for the install experience to be made a more positive one. Amongst the areas I believe need improving:-
Today, you cannot easily design dynamic visual content in Notes view (for Notes Clients).
You can only define a color (backgroud, text...) for a whole colum.
I think a quite simple way to allow better management of user-interface in views would be to allow including basic tags and have ...
I can create a doc link by drag&dropping an opened document tab into a document's richtext field.
I can create a database link by drag&dropping an opened database tab into a document's richtext field.
However, I cannot create a view link that way. I'm limited to use the options in ...
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...
Add functionality for either a real time diskspace indicator or an update button to update the diskspace percent indicators on the files tab of the Admin client. How many times have you been working on archives and disk clean ups only to look up at the indicators to think "I'm ...
I often write eMails in german with english words... (or I write a german or a english email... )
Every time I need to switch between these two dictionaries. I know how to do but many users doesn´t know or it need to much time... A good ...
Infact...make it easier.
It appears that the 8.0 mail template does not allow the function Ive come to use so often. Instruct a user to view the page source of a spam message and then Fwd that to me for processing.
I have included this link to 3 screen ...
We are looking for a way to "Drag and Drop" Mails from the Inbox to a Lotus Standard Application like Teamroom or Document Library. This should be possible within the new Notes Client Standard 8 and Eclipse ?!
We know quickr, but quickr follows another way.
I'd like a button to clean up the designer bookmarks (=delete all of them)...
They're messed up all the time and I'm usually using "Go To Designer" feature in the client workspace anyway.
If there was a feature to clean it up, I wouldn't have to be ...
Some of my messages get sent to folders without my seeing them, but I want some of my messages to be delivered to my inbox so I'm aware of them, and as soon as I've read them I want them to go into a specific folder -- with no action ...
Wouldn't it save you time if you could drag Notes design elements from a palette and place them on your form, subform etc?
Building on Andrew Pollacks idea fragments of script, or formula language could be user defined drag and droppable design elements.
And wouldn't it also be good to have ...
How about being able to define a "shared action button group" as a design element in Designer? This would be useful when assigning the same action button structure to multiple views. Sure, you can copy/paste an existing set of actions, but what happens if you need to add a new ...
Im looking for more information of handling the start up time of the Notes 8 Standard Client. There a a few documentations about it, but i think this is not enough and mostly to complex to handle and understand for "normal users" http://www.thenorth.com/apblog4.nsf/0/BB5DDB03611B2BB1852574D7005FF852
The default settings are very low and most of our ...
Using the Notes Traveler Application, it can be possibile to sync data (and front-end) of all Notes/Domino Application.
So Traveler became a Mobile Lotus Notes that can can be develo by IBM and third-party with many application like iPhone just do It.
I love the new action in the Inbox in Notes Mail that replicates mail now. However, I work in several discussion and production databases where I find myself looking for the yin-yang "replicate now" icon that I've become used to in the Inbox. Often, I want to shut down but ...
In the Domino Directory every license of Lotus Domino and Notes is listed in the view "Licenses". I would like to see the Sametime Connect Client licenses in this view, too.
Additional i would like to see the version of the ST client in the person document (for support or ...
Facility to add icon on hotspot buttons like we have icon option on action buttons.
Not just thinking about the IdeaJam site in particular but also the commercial application of what Bruce/Matt and the team have built:
Would a Notes 8 standard client plug-in like the current Quick reminder or Quick Memo be useful if it could be used to create new ideas in this ...
We recently faced with some issues while setting up notes clients during a server failure. The home mail server was in a cluster of 2 members and we had to keep the server down for a long period of time to trouble shoot the problem. During this period some users ...
If Quickr connectors were a Lotus Notes client install option (which could be scripted) that would simplify and reduce the administration required when upgrading or rolling out new machines. Imagine if Sametime (integrated version) was only a separate installation. That would hurt.
Since R8, the Mail view has had a nifty refresh icon, that is clever enough to know to kick off a replication process if a local replica is being used.
However, that tool seems to only be available in the Mail db.
I'd like it to be available ...
To make the Notes client as cool and sexy to use as a growing number of applications (including Web browsers), provide a series of out of the box skins/themes/personas for the Notes client along with a tool that allows customization. Something like this may make Notes appear more modern to ...
When shutdown Lotus Notes it needs some time to end all tasks - when you restart Notes in this time, it will be slow in startup. Bring a progress bar to show that client is shuting down (or close tasks immediately).
I am probably not the only one who still uses the workspace. There are times when I have more icons on a workspace tab than I room for on my screen and I need to move them around.
How about a zoom in/out feature, giving more of a virtual ...
I would like to see an option in de quickr plugin for the lotus notes client wich allows me to send an attachment to the outside world when I drag a document form a library into an e-mail. Now you can only create links. But sometime you want to add ...
It would great to type the company name in the recipient input field and get a result list of the employee's email addresses.
I know that Notes 7 and Notes 8 already provide the option to sort mail by subject, so I am preparing myself for the onslaught of potential demotions.
However, my idea is to see an improvement on the subject sorting itself. I would like to see the 'Re:' and ...
Enable auto-save on all bundled templates and make it switchable within Application Advanced Settings
Auto-save of mail messages is easy to enable in recent versions of the Notes client - it's in user preferences.
Howver, it's not just mail messages that would benefit from auto-saving during editing - blog posts, wiki entries, application forms and so on are all at risk should the ...
When the Standard R8/8.01 client crashes we are presented with a long stacktrace in a dialog that is larger than my (1600 x 1050) screen. The dialog cannot be resized and isn't therefore very useful. Can it be supressed and/or made resizable?
Many user asked me why it isn´t possible to add subgroups in the sametime contact list...
IT -> Network -> Peter Muster and Sascha Blocks
IT -> Application -> Joe Do and Peter Tester
IT -> Helpdesk -> Jack Daniels and Joe Tester
this would allow ...
For my understanding IBM looks to less on Notes Client Installation on a Terminal Server. We have about 10.000 users. And there local files (bookmark, names, autosave, desktop, etc.) are stored on a files server. Some users have bookmark or autosave files up to 100 MB each. It grows from ...
We use roaming a lot in our organization and it is an ongoing battle to streamline the roaming setup and making sure that the roaming process is working fine. We have to look into various places like local log.nsf, replication settings in the location document etc to see if the ...
I would like to be able to manage the return receipt of notes mails and/or internet mails.
The administrator could administer this client setting over the "Mail"-policy .
I would like to have two roles in the Sametime Meeting Center DB (stcenter.nsf)
These roles should controll which user can see the link to download the Sametime Client and/or the WebConnect client.
I wouldn´t like that every user can download the ...
Whenever a user changes to a new location in Notes that includes a different Notes ID, the client throws up this dialog
"This Notes Client supports multiple users. To use your own private data, log into the operating system using your personal logon and relaunch Notes. Do you wish ...
OKej, so (in 8.5) you have from Designer the option to open the application in the client directly from the right mouse menu. Why not the same option but then for the web browser and open the application with the default launch option for the web?
Would save me ...
When you reply to a mail a little green arrow icon will appear in the right most column of the inbox, signifying that that message has been replied to. How about jumping straight to the reply when clicking on that icon (instead of going to the thread view)?
Create a small, end-user friendly applciation to essentially run all of the "n*.exe" programs in the Notes program folder.
In particular, the abiltiy to run "the big three" maintenance applications against one's local databases:
If you want to go for broke, ...
Allow font size option in formula window (formula for choice) for check box, dilaoglist,combo boxes. E.g., It's very diffcult to find difference between a colon and semicolon.
When you receive a Lotus Notes Meeting Invite (as a participant), there are many occasions when you would like to have more people in your team attend the meeting with you. This is a suggested Lotus Notes enhancement that would benefit many Notes users.
Notes 8 gradients & grey-blue it's nice but it might not be your favourite colors.
For end-users it should be easy to 'pimp' their Notes client a bit more by being able to select a colorset for the Notes client from a predefined set of 'themes'.
If I want to ...
I think it would be nice if the screen capture tool in the embeeded sametime client and the stand alone client could be accessed via shortcut key. Many companies bought 3rd party software to do that. We could save some money with that and it would eliminate the need to install ...
In 8.5 client you can subscribe to published calendars, including protected Google Calendars. You can subscribe to an OfficeLive calendar if it is public, but you cannot subscribe to it if it is protected. Provide choice to subscribe to OfficeLive calendar just like you can to a Google calendar.
Extend the database properties to include information about attachments in a given mail database. For example: number of attachments, amount of database storage occupied by attachment, average size of attachments in database. This could then be extrapolated to the Administrator Client as an optional column in the Files view - to ...
Alt-Left Arrow and Alt-Right Arrow currently navigate backward and forward through the history of items opened. sort of. A more logical response to these commands is to cycle left and right through the tabs currently opened.
The current response to Alt-Left Arrow doesn't always go back to the last ...
Would like to have the option for a new mail notification occur upon new mail once it gets delivered to the local replica vs the server replicas. I have had several people comment on how they receive new mail notifications but "nothing appears" in the inbox. This gives the users ...
It works well, BUT WHERE THE HELL IS IT!
I just read the doc on Domino user because I felt too stupid not seeing the option to save files or attach links or anything in an easy and obvious fashion.
The Domino.Doc enabler at least came up in the save ...
E.g. for fields give us access to onKeyDown, onKeyPress, OnKeyUp etc.
For hotspots and computed text onMouseXXX and onSelect
I would really like to see the combobox and listbox (and a @%$#-ton of other objects behave the same (or at all) in a browser or the client. If the whole concept of developing for Notes and Domino is to speed developement time, then I shouldn't have to build form ...
After a hard disk crash I had to installed and configured a Notes client with a recovered user-ID. During the client configuration i had to recognize that i can´t use this user ID.
Therefore I would like to have the ability to use the recovery password during the client configuration.
BlackBerry PlayBook from version of OS 2.0 has native PIM applications but is no a way to synchronize E-mail, Calendar, To Do and Contacts with user mailbox on Lotus Domino server. Lotus Traveler for BlackBerry PlayBook would solve the problem.
Not all of my email / Cal / Contacts are provided by the company Domino server. Having to swtich location documents to check mail at an internet account is huge productivity drain.
I want to see the tabs at the top function much like the Windows task bar does: shrink as more windows are being opened or allow for more than just one row of tabs. If my memory serves me right, the Notes 7 client shrunk the tabs to fit more ...
Unless it is being significantly improved, please disable IMAP on the client.
(make an Debug_enable_imap_client notes.ini setting for those who care)
Explanation: some People go and download the Notes Client trial code, and in the setup dialog there are being asked about IMAP server. Since 99,9 % of Notes ...
I would like to see different preferences for the preview pane for the framesets around the mail client. For instance, show the preview pane for the Inbox but not for the drafts or the preview pane takes up half of the screen for the inbox but only 25% for the ...
Antivirus database are Karsperky in Lotus Foundations...
why do not you think an additional client add.on karsperky?
There are many cases where wrong email recipients are chosen by Lotus Notes, especially if common names like "Michael" are entered. Lotus Notes should be able to intelligently determine the recipients that the message is most likely intended for.
