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.

    Mac has this because we can Print to PDF out-of-the-box. It gives Notes this functionality. However, even buying or installing a PDF printer on Windows doesn't work seamlessly and what you get isn't what you expected (the preview, if the program has one, doesn't typically match what you get once saved for complex layouts).

    Lots of things in Notes are doable with extra software and kludges, when they should be native in script.

    This option is totally needed.  Think about the life cycle of data.  When the data is active you need it in the Notes application.  When it's inactive I would rather have it portable so that it can be stored in lower cost solutions or have analytics run against it.  Printing to PDF only gives your the visual representation of the document.  You end up losing data in hidden fields and attachments.

    I would like to see an option in the Archive settings of the database that lets you export the documents out of the NSF into PDF/A format.  Maybe even zip the attachments and newly created PDF together. You could also have a native script that could act on single documents.  Think legal discovery.

    This might not be required as print to PDF is built in to Windows 10, via the "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer.
