I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace. It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul. I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...
The only way that I know off to re-arrange tabs is to create a new tab move all databases from the old one to the new one and then delete the old tab. If you have many databases on that tab , it is quite time consuming.
As servers come and go, the list of server names cannot be updated to eliminate servers that no longer exist. They remain forever until a new desktop8.ndk is created. This is especially irritating for administrators and developers who work with test servers or servers from other domains. Touch it once ...
after reading this post, I would more options to get my workspace organized:
- resizing icon size
- adding bg colors to my db icons
- mouse over effect, to give Notes some improved UI improvement (lighten up bg? thumbnail 'lightbox' effect of default db launch option?
- option to ...
I'd like to be able to arrange my database icons by name, etc. on my workspace pages. Like I can on my desktop.
I am tired of a grey background, or blue or whatever color my system uses that I can choose.
I want to have bmps, jpgs, animated ones even would be cool.
The younger generation wants easily customizable solutions.
Would it be so hard to just have a preference to change ...
Why isn't the workspace configurable so if our company wants its logo on it we can do it?
It should be as simple as swapping a file, like it was in earlier versions.
It would be nice when there was a function that allows you to remove all workspace icons that refer to a selected server on the current workspace page are removed by a single function.
As a developer I always work on local replica's. This implies that there are workspace ...
I'd like to have a function which would allow me to "clean" my workspace from invalid chicklets and bookmarks.
It should do the following:
I still use the old workspace to access my databases but I find we don't have enough visibility and control over it. Ideally I'd like to open the desktop.dsk and be able to see 'Icons by server', 'by page', 'by title', 'by date open', 'by replica id', 'by filename' ... ...
when the workspace is being maintained for the notes client it can help us to include a default set of icons to choose as database icon, just like you have in your system when you customize the icon for a folder (see image).
not so originally, but sometimes a timesaver
There are times when my client locks up or worse, crashes. I've had multiple tabs open (mail, calendar, documents, etc). These were things that needed my attention and that got interupted when the client locked up. There should be a way to to save the tabs, as we do in ...
Now that we moved away from Databases to Applications as a concept ;) Why use the stack feature (currently used to keep replicas together) to keep related applications together.
You know the scenario, you have a front-end database that the user clicks on, but you still separate databases for ...
organising workspaces pages are a crime nowadays.
why not have the option to set a workspace page as a default workspace page to be opened at startup?
this would avoid that I have to move my favourite databases at a moment to the first workspace page
I have no idea where the Edit\Undo function all applies on, but for me this function may be extended to a lot more. For example the deletion of database icons, are workspace tabs/pages.
Especially with Notes 8 it seems very easy/sensitive to delete a set of database icons from ...
I would really like that the workspace (Yes i still use it and love it) is more manageable. For instance:
- Every new db link should be placed in a special tab in the workspace so you could easier delete the one's you don't want
- Cleanup agent (is also ...
if you open a database that is new to your workspace the database icon is added to the workspace tab of the currently opened database.
I would prefer that you can point to a dedicated tab in the preference where by default the icons will be placed under.
When dragging a Db icon from one Worspace tab to another, the user should be able to drop the icon in a specific place on the page.
Currently, When database icons are dragged from one workspace tab to another, the destination workspace page is not displayed. It just drops ...
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 ...
in Photoshop you have the option to save and reload your workspace so you can re-use it later, having all your customized settings at your hand.
it would be great to have this ability also in Designer.
especially when you work for different companies/customers, with their specific color ...
Wouldn't it be nice when you could specify in a location what workspace page to use. When you have several ID's and several workspace pages it would be very useful when the related workspace page is immediately shown after login or after swich of location.
As you know, when you close the Notes Client all open tabs (databases, documents) are saved, they open up again the next time you open Notes.
There are some problems of this functional:
1. If, after the closure of Notes to open it under a different user, then open ...
There's an option in preferences to 'Group documents from each application on a tab'. So all emails you have open end up on a single 'Mail' tab in the Notes client. It's a handy poweruser type feature.
However, navigation would be simpler (particularly if you only ...
Wouldn't it be nice when you could use keystrokes to select a workspace icon and then remove it? When you need to remove several icons at once (e.g. icons that refer to a server) you need to use the mouse and the mousekeys to often.
1. It would be convenient to have similar functionality, as well as at the closing-opening Notes Client, that is, when loading the Domino Designer automatically recover a set of open in the previous session of design elements.
All requirements for the keeping / restoration Workspaces set out in the idea ...
Introduce a new context menu entry in admin client when clicking on a notes application that says "Add to workspace...". After clicking, open a dialog box that lists the tabs in the workspace and let the user chose on which tab he wants to add the application to. Support adding ...
It would prevent me from clicking on inaccessible databases. (Okay: on their icons.)
A disabled workspace page should not be hidden, but its tab may be painted differently, maybe grayed out.
Why? - Some customers allow me to use my laptop at their site. I also work at different offices, ...
Dubbleclick on workspace = File - Database - Open ... ...
I really liked the "show as workspace" feature for bookmark folders in ND6 and 7. It provided an easy way to open various databases with few clicks and allowed to organize the old workspace tabs into groups (each folder containing its own tabs). I had some of these workspaces open ...
I know that the workspace is a sore subject for some, maybe many, but I love it.
It would be nice if we had the option when doing a right-click on a workspace page/tab to arrange icons in a specific order. Options could be:
by Last ...
Google Mail and Google Reader display the unread count in the browser tab. I would like to see this in Notes Client Workspace tabs, too.
While other programs (tags2find,...) allow you to tag your documents on you local machine would it be a tought to have the ability to tag the databases on your workspace or installed on your local machine?
From a tagcloud then I could open a tagged database?
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 ...
For the designer client I frequently use the design synopsis, for example to get the name of the server or the location of the database (incl filepath) so I can do a copy and paste action of the text.
Unfortunately for the design synopsis I have to go in the application menu, ...
A nice feature of Lotus Notes is that you can see the number of documents you have not read in a particular database (ahum sorry.. application) from the workspace.
The downside of this feature is that it assumes a document requires a persons attention if the user has not ...
My problems to organize DB-Icons in the workspace would be solved much better, if I could get at least one level of sub-tabs/sub-pages in a workspace-page.
I personally miss the bookmarks from Notes 5 to 7 because i had the possibility with subfolders. I am obviously really alone with this ...
A facilitty to search for databases whose icons exists on different workspace pages will help. Being a Notes/Domino Admin I have a lot of workspace icons on my workspace. Though I have created mutiple pages workspace and have categorized the Db icons accordingly. Stil it takes time to go through different ...
It would be nice to have the ability to open the Workspace or a workspace page in New window.
It would be nice to have a "Bookmark All Tabs" option in Lotus Notes with an additional option to "Bookmark Selected Tabs"...another option to allow a user to select multiple database icons under workspace and have the option to "Bookmark Selected Database Icons", etc.
In the classic workspace property you have the option to show replica icons stacked or not. In the grided bookmark (workspace view of bookmarks) they are always stacked. I would like to be able to select on an application level wich one is going to be show'n as a stacked ...
I would like these options on setting the size of tabs:
- specify a minimum size in pixels
- specify if all tabs are the same or if they are allowed to be bigger or smaller than a recommended size
If I have more tabs than comfortably fit on ...
As part of the new workspace IBM might (and IMHO should) develop for Lotus Notes, a nice feature would be to have progress bars on the workspace icons, indicating that the application is currently replicating or copying.
Kinda like the Installing progress bars on the iPhone icons.
