Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! 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 jointly by the IBM & 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.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.


Undocumented functions

John Paganetti once said „There are no u documented functions when you work for IBM“.

many of us are using those functions and we figured out their signatures. Some undocumented stuff is also used in shipped templates.  

I no longer insist in making all of the undocumented stuff documented. At least, give best effort support, if we run into issues. Do not block us at L1. We are using the stuff, and we know about limitations. Do not treat us as „citizen developers“ any longer.

    Can you provide examples for which functions you are missing the documentation?
