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.


Drastically improve the look and feel of the Notes client, make it dramatic and modern, make it 64 bit, make it easy to upgrade to, make it perform properly.

    Here are some specifics.

    1. Implement the CAE broker in a manner that does not need the Eclipse framework under it. It is a better method for initiating events between frames but is cumbersome to implement.

    2. Improve the existing design elements:

    -Change all elements to use windows 10 themes

    -Allow the use of themes to change the look of a view

    -Allow views to include  a "grid" appearance even when subcategories are in use.

    -let lists include bitmaps, and have multiple columns.

    -let table tabs include bitmaps.

    -let inviewedit use check boxes, combo boxes and other helper elements during the edit process.

    - Implement a native tag cloud as a complement to folders

    -Improve the working link between embedded view and embedded editors - it should not be so difficult to add or delete new records or cancel an edit session.

    The Notes Client it's the real and I think also the only reason why customers have left Notes ....
    a nice refresh especially at the RICHTEXT is necessary

    the client is too heavy and users complain of slowness

    Forgive offensiveness: You can replace "the Notes client" by placeholder <insert product name here> and the idea still is a perfect fit for any product on the market. I'm quite sure that's not the kind of idea they really have been waiting for...

    this is very important.

    we need a fast client!

    Probably on my own here but on both of my mid range Windows machines there is nothing wrong with the performance of the Notes Client, it opens in 2 seconds, mail with 33,000 historical records opens mail records within milliseconds. Applications are fine unless the design of the form is poor. I don't understand the problem. Unless using FP10 then that is nightmare.

    Any suggestions on the look and feel improvements. We are looking to  give a new color palette for the client.

    New design layout in general.

    You need a designer that will create a mock-up for new look and fell.

    This is not only change the palette color :-)

    why not align the design similar to iOS/Android?

    And upgrade database and toolbar icons to scalable vector graphic. Current bitmaps is very tiny on a 4K monitor. 

    and dont forget the basic client. It performs a lot better than the standard Eclipse client (I recommend all customers to use the basic client)

    Notes have only a future, if the existing notes frontend gets an dramatical face lifting.

    Don't forget to streamline the menus. Keep same things at the same place (e.g. there are lots of items where a search can be done).

    A designer should watch people using notes in their everyday life and optimise the client. This should not be done by a tecnician.

    As is already said: not the administrator makes the decision to use notes and domino. It's the management and (maybe) the end user. They must get a great 'user experience' to vote for a product. And this is the point where notes has a great potential.

    Something small, but important for the Developer:
    - Change the Column und Button Icons in modern and flat simple Symbols
    This is only a piece of cake, but it makes modern Apps possible!

    Example: Delete Workspace to solve lots of problems..

    Or: Restoring folders with its content?

    Or: Make folders copy&paste for shared mailbox-user..
