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.

Improvement to files linked in Activity Stream

When a user adds a file to the AS and saves it, fellow users see a link for pdf & doc ,but for images they see a thumbnail preview. The current functionality is by clicking the link under the file the file is downloaded. Clicking the file title or around it activated the EE flyout. This generates a preview of the file (or image) Again clicking the thumbnail calls the file to be downloaded. We feel the correct action should be the file gets loaded in a preview (even if only for images), and also this requires 2 mouse clicks which is not easily seen and understood by users. I did not see the preview link and my users did neither. Also, it takes two clicks and good eyesight to find it. So maybe it is worth considering opening a Preview as default when clicking on an image as I assume most Connections users will probably want to keep the file in Connections and work with it there rather than download it in the first place.
