Bring back the Sandbox on developerWorks

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: notes.net, developerworks
Peter von Stöckel2682 - 02 2010 / (5)
In September 2010, IBM removed the Sandbox from developerWorks Lotus. With that removal, they also broke countless forum responses that link to specific Sandbox files, as well as links from countless blogs and web sites all over the world.
There are two ways to fix this. Either put the ...

Add A More Detailed Index To Designer Help

: Lotus Technical Information / Domino Designer
: designer, help
Peter Presnell26659 - 05 2010 / (6)
The biggest thing I miss with the new Eclipse help for Domino Designer is the presence of a detailed index that includes all the classes, methods, properties etc that are contained in the various languages.  I keep using the original NSF help because of this one feature.   Being able to ...

Reward and Motivate People to Answer Forum Posts

: Lotus Technical Information / Community
: forums
Kathy Brown231 - 23 2010 / (2)
Reward people for posting answers to forum questions in a manner similar to (or integrated with) the developerWorks Autho Achievement Recognition Program.
Even better, users could vote on forum answers, helping readers when there are multiple answers, and authors getting a certain number of votes get recognition for ...

Change the way you, as a customer, can weigh on SPR's

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: spr
Mathieu Pape7680 - 19 2013 / (6)
I've opened quite a lot of PMR's over time. A lot of them do not get any further than "an SPR exists but has no or not enough weight; if enough weight then it will be fixed". Weight is given by opening a PMR. This is of course an understandable way ...

The problem is this could be a tome, but maybe it will be done in 8 parts.
1) Notes
2) iNotes
3) Domino
4) Quickr D/J
5) Sametime
6) Connections
7) Portal
edited after Bens comments to include:

Book Proposal: Introduction to Notes C API Programming

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: book proposals, notes api
Richard Schwartz3723 - 16 2010 / (0)
This is in response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
There hasn't been a book on the C API since the early 90s.  In the format Ben describes, one could probably only just scratch the surface of setting up your development environment; understanding the most important API ...

Book Proposal: Implementing Lotus Sametime 8.5.x

: Lotus Technical Information / Sametime
: book proposals, sametime
Tinus Riyanto2905 - 16 2010 / (0)
This is response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
I know that there is already a slide outlining what it takes to deploy all the component of sametime 8.5.x but I felt that there are many things left unexplained to those that read it. From my own ...

Book Proposal: YALSB

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: book proposals
Ulrich Krause4897 - 15 2010 / (2)
This is response to Ben Langhinrichics' request for book proposals.
YALSB ( Yet another LotusScript book ) starts where the "Programming Bible" ends.
From over 10 years of working in a forum, I can say that 80% of all Developers do not know or use many of ...

  • Communication on different protocols
  • Configuring and Tuning the Domino ...

Kendra Bowker1566 - 23 2010 / (1)
Answers posted in the forums can be great candidates for wiki articles. Make it easy to
create wiki articles from answered forum posts. For example, provide a button in the forum post that
opens a new wiki article in the corresponding wiki.

Commission more developerWorks content from non-IBM authors

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: developerworks
Jeff Gilfelt1049 - 01 2008 / (4)
Of late I have found that the number of technical articles and tutorials in the developerWorks Lotus zone written by IBM employees far outweighs the number written by non-IBM authors. While I appreciate the insights and detail that is offered by the people who developed the products, I often find ...

Wiki Outline (for any IBM wiki) should start with a TOC or Outline provided by IBM

: Lotus Technical Information / Product Wiki Design
: wiki, lotus notes
Lance Spellman133 - 01 2009 / (2)
Part of the value of a redbook has always been the organization and flow of the material.  The team writing the redbook would know the content they needed to produce and would provide an organization structure for how they would proceed through the material.
If there's a Lotus Domino ...

Syntax Highlighter for the wikis

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: xpage, html, wiki
John Smart833 - 02 2010 / (2)
A quick glace through wiki pages containing example code (example) proves a systemic usability problem.
The wikis should recognize code (through a code tag? through any <pre> tag where the contents start with a less-than character?) and automatically convert/highlight the code.
Syntax highlighters are usually done via ...

E-mail notifications to wiki article authors when comments posted

: Lotus Technical Information / Product Wiki Design
: wikis
Kendra Bowker1566 - 01 2010 / (0)
Authors of wiki articles can overlook comments, especially if they aren't made at the time the articles are posted. I'd like wiki authors to be able to  sign up to receive email notifications when comments are made to their articles.

Enhance, Support and Promote Personal Connections within the Lotus Community

: Lotus Technical Information / Community
: personal network, personal connections, personal chat
Jennifer Stevenson115 - 12 2010 / (1)
It would be great to have the ability to be able to establish a personal connection (albeit virtual) with others within the Lotus Community in a more personal and private fashion - that is, of course, mutual on both sides. At the moment our connections seem to be established by ...

: Lotus Technical Information / Other
: help, adminstration help documentation, designer help documentation, help search usability
Foua Vang2495 - 28 2010 / (1)
IBM Lotus Notes Help/Lotus Domino Administrator Help/Lotus Domino Designer Help - it would be nice if next to each topic in Help there is a "Show Me" button that would show a video clip of how to do this and/or it would take the user to screen shots that shows ...

: icon, stencil, visio
Mathieu Pape7680 - 30 2012 / (2)
How many times did you need those for a presentation, training, documentation, ... ? And how many times did you find it in high quality via Google? Right ! Time for some official stuff especially with the load of existing and new IBM/Lotus branded products.
