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.

Make "Recent Contacts" in names.nsf authoritative (not dipTable)
The Recent Contacts list exists with a user's names.nsf. It also exists within "C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Notes\Data\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\com.ibm.notes.dip\" as a set of dipTable files. These two locations are synchronized in the client, at certain times.
If the workspace folder is removed, instead of the dipTable being re-populated from the names.nsf, the names.nsf version is cleared. This is obscure, and makes it more troublesome to move a user from one computer to another (while maintaining their contacts).
If the dipTable is needed for some Eclipse reason (I assume this is why it exists), it should be a one-way synchronization from the names.nsf into dipTable. Any change to the Recent Contacts should happen primarily within the names.nsf.
