Awesome! Absolutely love it! A real game changer.
 commented on 3/29/13 9:41:40 PM
I really like the plug-in, but I do have a couple of questions. 1. Does the plug-in support IBM SmartCloud Engage yet (like the Windows desktop plug-in)? If it does, can you provide the URL to use in configuring the plug-in to access SmartCloud. And if not, should we expect support later after SmartCloud Engage is upgraded to a compatible version of Connections. 2. Does the plug-in support multiple Connections installations (like the desktop plug-in)? If not, is that on the road-map? I'd really like to connect to both Greenhouse and SmartCloud. Congratulations on your work so far!
 commented on 3/29/13 9:44:18 PM
And the previous comment from testusers was actually from me. It seems Greenhouse isn't 100% happy with Chrome just yet.

Are there any plans to have a version available for Outlook for Mac?
 commented on 5/10/13 2:31:11 PM
@Carl Radino As you may know, the programming model on Outlook Mac is significantly different than that of Outlook Windows. The extension points needed are not available in Outlook Mac, so not likely we'll do an Outlook Mac version based on current Outlook Mac architecture.
 commented on 5/10/13 2:32:13 PM
@Jurjen Multiple IBM Connections servers are not supported at this time. We've logged this as requirement. Thanks for your feedback!
 commented on 5/10/13 2:34:14 PM
@Rupert Clayton Our apologies for missing your earlier post. IBM SmartCloud is not supported at this time ... but under consideration as a key requirement. As is your request for multi-server support

just wondering if there are any plan to add in Activities to outlook just like they have in Notes?

Great work. I was just wondering, will there be any support for Outlook 2013 anytime soon? I have 64bit Win7 and Outlook 2013 64bit ant the installer doesn't seems to recognize it. The 32bit version of plugin installs though(recognize Outlook, which is an error, I don't have 32bit Outlook 2013, but 64bit one), but naturally doesn't work.
 commented on 5/28/13 9:54:18 AM
I am experiencing issues with the Outlook Social Connector not working properly with the new version of the Outlook Plug-in. The Social Connector shows up fine, but does not show people's pictures. Whereas with the old Outlook Plug-in the pictures did show up. Anyone else experiencing this issue and/or have a fix? As a side note, I am running Office 2010 on a 32-bit machine. Thanks!! =o)
 commented on 5/30/13 3:27:30 PM
@Matjak Mocnik The plugin today does not support Outlook 2013, but this is a high priority requirement which we will attempt to fulfill later this year. But please contact me directly if you want to discuss your deployment timeframes.
 commented on 5/30/13 3:35:01 PM
@Jodanna Cook We're not sure what your issue might be. Are you still experiencing it? If you want to open a PMR (problem report) I'll make sure my engineers look into it. They'll be able to get your specifics and work through it. Please let me know.

I'd like to point out that today (6/21/2013) we've updated thi plugin to its first fixpack. The fixpack contains miscellaneous fixes and translation updates. I recommend users upgrade to this latest version. Upon completion of the installation, the fixpack version in the About dialog will read: 1.0.0.1914
 commented on 6/27/13 10:07:40 AM
I'd also like to point out that the plugins update also includes support for IBM Connections version 4.5 CR1.
 commented on 6/27/13 10:39:27 AM
Plugin works nicely. Unfortunately it doesn't support SmartCloud. The IBM Connections Desktop Plug-ins for Microsoft Windows does support SmartCloud.
 commented on 6/28/13 5:05:32 PM
@Martijn Thank you for your interest in support for IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. This is certainly a key requirement on our list!

I am in the process of assessing Connections for Outlook Plug-in, where can I get more information about this component that include operational concern about ID/password combination expiring and more. Thanks in advance.
 commented on 6/6/14 10:28:12 AM
@Vijay Bhusari The product documentation is linked above. If after you've read through it please post your questions here. As for ID/password expiration, the code has logic to only attempt to authenticate a couple times with the stored ID/password so one does not get locked out by too many failed attempts.
 commented on 7/7/14 8:54:32 AM
Is Windows 2008 Server 64bit a supported operating system for the plugin? Does only the client needs to be 2007 and above or the backend needs to be also 2007 and above? For the latest question in my client we use MS Office 2010 but our mail server exchange are still 2003. Thank you
 commented on 7/10/14 11:26:04 AM
@Benoit Culioli The OS level of one's MS Exchange infrastructure has no bearing on the client supported OS's for our plugin. Windows 2008 Server is not one our supported client OS's, but would be fine for one's mail server assuming its supported by MS. Regarding Outlook versions, our client requires Outlook 2007 or above (e.g. Outlook 2010 or 2013). A previous Exchange level (e.g. 2003) should not be an issue with our plugin as long as its supported by your Outlook 2010 clients.

Some users experience problems with "Use Windows credentials" after changing their password. I would understand if this occurs for some hours but even after days the only way to connect again is the use of "username" and "password". We are running 4.5 CR5. Anyone else facing this issue? Feedback would be great before I start a PMR.
 commented on 11/24/14 11:01:48 AM

Hello Everyone.. When are we going to have a full operational PlugIn for MS Office? I mean, with full Sync in Calendar, Contactas and tasks? And may be a better way to sync the Email with IBM Connections. Hopefully it can work in MS office 2016 and in a 64 Bits enviroment, like Win10... really hope hearing this good news ASAP. Thanks!!!

Any news about Win10 and Office 2016 Support? Its really frustrating to see that it takes so much time to update. There are many users in Win 10 and Office 2016 .. and now specially in 64 Bits for using all Ram memory provided by the vendors. Feedback Please!!!!

Folks, Thank you for your input on Windows 10 and Office 2016. We are working to complete this support. As you may see we just updated the plugin today with a refresh, in which we've addressed some Windows 10 and 2016 issues. As you try this, please report any issues specific to Windows 10 and 2016 to us so we can look into them as our testing continues.
 commented on 12/15/15 9:53:53 AM
@Alexey Chikin. Can you provide a screen shot of the problem you are seeing with the phone number and address fields? Please send to malacins@us.ibm.com. We may advise you to open a PMR, but I'd like to take a quick look if you can send a screen shot.

Is there an update expected for support with Connections 5.5 or does this version have full support for it?
 commented on 1/15/16 11:59:27 AM
@Stephen Brady. The currently posted version (Dated December 2015) contains the Connections 5.5 support. The support list should be updated within the next week to specifically identify this.
 commented on 2/14/16 12:56:18 PM
@Andrei Malacinski. Firstly, thanks for powerfull plugin! Andrei, pls, is there a reason why Notes plugin supports Activities almost from the beginning - and Outlook plugin ignores them so far? In my opinion Activities are the most useful (and used) application from the point of view of SMB users and including their support into this plugin would dramatically increase it's usefullness.

When sending emails, inserting just a link to a file in connections instead of attaching a file is a great choice for company internal use. But in our setup that link is unusable outside of our network. I know there is a way to change the behaviour of the plugin to always attach files. But it would be really great, if there was a per-email-choice of whether to insert a link or attach a file. Ideally, there would be an automatic rule that says "Insert links for internal contacts, otherwise attach files". Are there any plans on this?

Currently I'm using version 16.1. In MS Word, you can save a file to Connections with Connections being an option as a place in the 'Save As' and 'Save' areas. However, I don't see it as an option when you go to the 'File' | 'Open' area. Is this possible with this version or does anyone know how to get it to show as an option there?

Adding a message to an activity is only possible if you create an entry for it or use an existing one - I like that. It sets a Signal that you should not just dump something from here to there. Then you end up with an .msg attachment to that entry. That I do not like at all. Is this a case of "works as designed"? (I get an error message after during the process. It says "error saving the message"). The behavior in the Notes Client is the one that should be there: the message you add is a kind of entry itself and can be read directly (not after download and open from folder). Turning Connections into a a clumsy file systems doppelgänger should stop somewhere.

Does the client support strict TLS1.2 and is there a list of supported ciphers? Reason is that when I have this turned on server side, the client seems to fail connection. Just curious in terns of general expected support. If so, I can open a ticket to address. If not, are there plans for support at some point?

Is there a full listing of all the registry settings and descriptions in addition to the ones included in the description sheet above?

Is there any plan for branding for customer options like the windows explorer integration. Thanks for the nice Integrations. Best regards

Hi team, we updated the registry for the URL provisioning on Windows 7 64bit and with OutLook 32bit but are unsuccessful in our test. Do you think we need uninstall the plugin and reinstall it to see the ULR provision?
