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.

Connections Desktop Plug-in: Prompt for lock before editing a file

IBM Connections Desktop Plug-in provides the option to lock a file. However, users have to lock a file manually before editing, and forget it most likely. A first improvement would be to prompt for lock before editing a file. Confirming this prompt would ensure that a file gets locked and cannot be edited by another person in parallel.

Idea #I-48 (https://connections.ideas.aha.io/ideas/IDEACNCTNS-I-48) describes a more broader approach including a check if a file is currently being edited by another person in IBM Docs.

    This feature was announced by IBM two years ago. I would like to see some progress in IBM's development activities.
