This blogpost from RenĂ© Schimmer it's containing some valuable info about all sw released.

This are my favorites 10 trending ideas from Domino and Connections Aha! Portal .

With the excuse to tell you my 5 favorite ideas taken from the first 3 pages of the categories "tranding ideas" I like to spend some lines introducing the Aha! portals dedicated to IBM sw for the one who could have missed it .

Over the past months IBM has launched Aha! portals for many of its products, including Domino (with Notes, Verse, Sametime) and Connections.

Aha! is a portal as a service specialized in software development, able to provide a series of tools behind the scenes (therefore only visible to developers and project managers), to catalog, manage and transform the ideas collected into road-map, to be followed during the development.


If you are a user of the IBM ICS products, I want to see the portals dedicated to Domino and Connections m available here:



IBM has repeatedly said that ideas are read, monitored and managed with this tools daily.

If you have in mind features important for you that are missing in the products you use every day, go to the above addresses, register for free and contribute: this is the best way to be heard by the devs and have hopes that functionality will be added in the future.

Obviously it is all at the discretion of the developers, it is not a democracy and not all ideas will be made .... but I reiterate the importance in devoting a few minutes when you have free time to read the ideas by voting and / or commenting.

To have the excuse of this post I have read the first 3 pages of the categories "Trending" of Domino and Connection and I chose 5 ideas that seemed to me more interesting , I report them below hoping to stimulate your curiosity for visit and contributions:



Aha! portals of Domino and Connections are not the only 2 IBM portals currently available, just do a quick search on google and you can also find the following:

IBM Client Application access - how perform the silent installation ( this post contain the correct command .. )

Last week my colleague  Fabio Grasso working with a customer has noted an error in the ICAA documentation that prevent silent installation to work correctly:

here in the document page  is reported the following wrong command


setup.exe -s -a /s /v"/qn"


but to be able to perform a silent ICAA installation the correct command to use is the same needed for Notes

setup.exe /s /v"/qn"
