Can't believe this hasn't been proposed yet as it's an old idea.
Just want to be able to specify server (as in current server), database and view, rather than replica id. Replicas don't work for development.
This only applies, since Nathan Freeman's sesame street example, to single category ...
I wish I could set the height of an embedded view based on a formula. This would allow me to better utilize screen real estate by calculating the height based on the number of entries that exist and could be used to set a max and a min height. This ...
I would like more control over the visual style of views, especially when it comes to categories. See my screenshot for an example, but
1. Let me specify a background color or background image and row height for a specific category
2. Let me choose whether column totals ...
When searching a view with categorized columns, you get a results set back with the twistied Category listed. When you expand the category by clicking on the twistie, it expands but the category disappears. This is particularly frustrating when searching the log database as all you end up with is ...
In Notes 8, the new "java views" (inbox, contacts, etc) can not be closed by right double clicking. You can in "normal" views.
I'd like to have a filter field at the top of views (similar to search box) that I can enter characters into and the view will filter in real time as characters are entered.
I would like to see NotesName added as a valid column type for views. Once selected I could then have the option of chosing how I would like to display name fields ([CN] being the most common). These would elminate all those @Name([CN];namefield) column formulas. It should also speed up ...
Is it possible to have a deselect all shortcut?
Would be useful to be able to select a load of documents in a view, perform some sort of action/agent on them, then just remove the selection checkmark to maybe select some others, or for any reason.
If you have a view with some categorized columns, then scrolling down the view means that the category values will scroll up out of sight.
It would be extremely useful, if some sort of mechanism could be developed to show what the values are of categorized columns, even if ...
I get a few calls every now in then when a user has clicked on the header of a sortable column and they do not know why their type ahead search is not working. They also don't know what happened to any catagorized column. They might have even clicked on ...
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 ...
The view and form design elements are the single most used design elements within Notes. Even with Xpages I expect it will be a long time before it gets even close to have the same level of adoption/use. For the next major release of Notes (9.0?) I would like to ...
Deleting a bunch (or even a single) document from Mail can be tediously slow compared to other email clients. Not sure how others do it quicker, but here is one suggestion for Notes.
When a change to a view occurs, Notes must always trigger a view update on the ...
The current editable views are a step in the right direction but are still quite a long way away from fulfilling on the vision of what is possible with this sort of design element. Just look to a grid view control for a more complete feature set and the kind ...
The current system makes it impossible to use totals in views on a browser because the total will include documents that you cannot see because of Reader / Author restrictions
Would also be nice if we could categoris odeas under server and development as an example
I've been hacking the summary views of calendars, using embedded views to categorize single time entries, writing time-based agents, and ditzing with workarounds for @Today in views for quite awhile, more than a decade. I think it would be a real plus if I could provide more time-selectivity in views, without ...
I've always wanted the ability to double click the right edge of a view's column, in both the Client and Designer, to force it to fit the longest data element in the view. (Much like Windows Explorer.) It can be inconvenient to resize each column manually when trying to get ...
Ability to flag a view column as 'running total', so that it would display a running total of all the data in the view.
Probably very hard to do, given the way the view engine works and the complications of readers fields, categories, single-categories, bla bla ... but it ...
When choosing a view or folder to switch to using the pull down menu View - Go To, the view must be selected and then the OK button must be clicked. It does not allow simply double-clicking the view.
It should be possible to double-click the view instead of ...
Very often a user called me that he is unable to see xy in some DBs in his view. But I´m as DB Manager couldn´t help him, because I didn´t see the view he use (because it is private)...
So I must visit his workstation to have a look ...
navigating to views in the notes client is using the scrollbar, pressing the PgUp and PgDn keys or using the arrow keys.
i guess in some conditions it would be userfriendly to be able to action buttons with options to add a jump to top/bottom function or way to ...
As of now if we open the categorized view in lotus notes, the look and feel and the categorization option also toooooo bad.
There should be some mechanism in designer such that if u open categorized view, then it should be opened in the ajaz formatted view. Which is very ...
When I save a view in Designer and I'm in that view in Notes, Notes locks up waiting on the view rebuild.
It'd be great if Notes just went to its "view being refreshed" screen and actually allowed us to continue development.
Another simple one.
By default, when you open an un-customised Notes 8.5 mailbox, the "Views" section doesn't contain any views. Simply put, it should!
Some examples might be:
I wish a selection formula could select a main doc an all its responses into a view based on anything in the respones
This would be very useful when building view such as all the threads a user has psoted to or any thread that pertains to a subject.
when you select as a column property:
- show twistie when rows is expandable
and you use a formula similar like:
Category + "\\" + SubCategories
Only the first row is displayed with the provided image, the second row becomes again the ugly duck twistie as ...
In the design client, when working on a view, allow the document properties box to work on documents in the view -would be incredibley helpful to check a doc when writing a complex selection statement, for example
I'm accustomed to copying values from the InfoBox which is very tedious.
It would be very logical to add a tool to all right-click view menus that copies the selected column/row value to the clipboard.
Modern UI behavior seems to be moding towards the adoption of a single icon (toggle) to expand/collapse categorized views. We do not have this capability in either the Notes Client or XPages requiring two separate icons for expand and collapse to be adapoted... In 2015 Less is More.
Documents may contain multi-valued items . Many times the values in the items are related (e.g. a document describing an invoice may contain multi-valued items for the purchased article codes, article titles, article price, ...)
Suppose we need to build a view that displays all invoice documents that have at ...
In view columns you have option to check sort options to Case-sensitive sorting and Accent-sensitive sorting. I would like an additional option to sort as numeric.
This to avoid problems in sorting of numbers stored as text. Today, when stored as text 2000 comes before 201, and 200.13 comes ...
Currently if I sell 10 apples for 3 dollars in one row, and I sell 5 apples for 1 dollar in the next row and i want the "Average Price" I can get the average price per row, which is 2, but not the weighted average of 2.33 (The price ...
In the composite app ui include archived mails in some views (eg all document). The NotesView module, should read the configured archive databases and present an aggregated list of mails. Archived mails should marked with an icon or color.
Often admins would like a way to recast certain columns in an application in useful ways, without having a major impact on the view's content or the like.
It'd be great if the developer could allow someone to change the formula in a profile, and have that affect a ...
We have notesViewEntry.IsTotal, but I was just working on something and would have loved a quick way to notesViewEntry.GetTotal.
Sure, workarounds abound, but thought this would be handy.
It would be useful to have the list of views in the Designer client either display the "Last Indexed" date or the "Last Accessed" date, which are already stored and accessible in the properties, in a column, so that it is easier to determine which views are no longer used and ...
Provide a helper/wizard to create a view based one or more forms.
While having one or more forms highlighted I can click a button to create a view that will show documents created with these forms. When I open this view creation wiazard I can further refine which forms ...
