During the last 2 days of September 2020 Let's Connect run his first virtual event where HCL has showed some nice news and anticipation of the upcoming release 7.0.
This release should be released during December 2020 for the on-prem installations and during the first month of the 2021 to the MSP for cloud setup.
Some of my preferred new features are the new tailored experience with the new templates, with also the ability to have import/export and the integrations with MS Teams and MS SharePoint.
Another nice to have feature is the availability of the PDF export from Wikis and Forum, available also from mobile.
The upgrade process from previous release will be smooth because it will be possible to install it as inplace upgrade on top of the 6.5 CR1 like a normal CR.
If you are interested so see more news from the event you could check all the event slides here , or check the session registration on the Let's Connect YouTube channel .

HCL Connections has some useful plug-ins, for Windows, MacOS , Notes and Office that integrate the functionality into OS , Notes and Office menu.
This plug-ins are easy to use and increase the functionality of Connections but unfortunately too often are cause of issues just because the version used and installed in the end-user devices is too old (1 year and more.. )! In this case the issue are fixed running an upgrade witht the last version available, and in my daily routine I've seen too often this situation.
Currently on Connections product ideas portal it's available an idea , related on auto update of the desktop connector.
The idea is in "medium term focus" state that means HCL has express the intent to develop this functionality.
If think like me , that this idea should be implemented , maybe using Microsoft or Apple store, I invite you to express your vote and comment on aha site.
Waiting the auto-update, it's important to NOT forget to update regularly the plugins because important bug-fixes and functionality like OAuth login for Connections MT are implemented and released with the updates.
I like to leave here some usefull link where are available what's new and flexnet link:
