Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Forum! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Right click on an link in a received mail should offer: Copy URL/URI Link

  1. You receive an email with a nicely formatted link in the Notes client.(e.g. pointing to this site here "View idea")
  2. Now try to create a new message/mail
  3. Try to just copy that link from the received mail message into your new message/mail.
  4. You right click on the link in the message and Notes gives you only "Copy" and "Copy as Document Link"
  5. You miss the option: "Copy as URL/URI Link"

A lot of my users would really like to see that little helper in the context of the right-click menu. Just copy the URL to the clipboard.

    It may have shipped in Notes 12.0 but it only grabs the first 256 characters of the link. We are seeing unsub links with longer urls. A recent ubsub link was 360 chars long.

    The new feature does not seem to work.

    The "Copy as URL" is always greyed out.

    Yes!  Although, use friendlier or more common language like "Copy Link Address" or if Notes keeps calling it a hotspot, call it "Copy Hotspot Address"


Make it possible to copy a URL

In all other mail clients, you can right click on a hypertext link and choose: Copy URL. This is not possible in Notes. It should be. There is actually no easy way to get hold of the URL. I suggest this functionality be added in the next FP.
