HCL Domino Ideas Portal

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.

    The current search in the top right corner lets you toggle where to search but you don't have the ability to customize it to search in multiple apps. Something like the multidatabase search we had back in R5 would work if updated to the Exclipse modern look/feel. I have implemented "dashboards" with this functionality, but being able to search across a series of apps from the UI would be beneficial.

    APIs and toolkits for interfacing NSF files do already exist. Vendors just have to use it.
