Welcome to the IBM Connections 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 by the IBM 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, please visit our IBM Connections page.


Connections email notification settings notation for Files and Docs to warn users that a file must be followed or liked to receive notification when edited

We would like to have a notation placed in the Connections "Notification Settings" screen next to the "Files" and "Docs" options to state something similar to the following text: "Must also Like FILES to receive notifications when file is edited"

Additional information
We noticed when a file is edited then published in a Community, the edit notifications are not being sent out to users that are following the Community. Each user also has their Connections notifications set to "Individual Message" for "Files", "Communities" and "Docs". But if the user Likes or Follows the file then they start receiving the email notifications when the file is edited/published.
