Image from store QuickSearch for IBM Connections Cloud
Description from store /!\ This plugin is a beta experiment based on the QuickSearch plugin for IBM Connections (also available on Chrome Store) This plugin version is only intended for IBM Connections Cloud. If you want to connect to an on-premises IBM Connections instance (such IBM Greenhouse) then use the QuickSearch plugin for IBM Connections. =============================== Important disclaimer : Because I work for IBM and because I made this extension during by job time, this extension belongs to IBM. BUT, this extension is NOT supported by IBM. Every bug report must be sent to myself only (do not open a PMR), and -even if I'm pretty quick to answer- without any legal obligation or whatsoever to correct them. This extension is provided AS IS. =============================== The QuickSearch plugin let you quickly search for users or content within IBM Connections, upload and/or share a File to multiple users, invite a group of users into a community, share an URL to your board or someone's board, see your activity stream updates in real time, and update your profile picture using your webcam or an existing picture. Use the popup window in the upper right corner of chrome in order to search within Profiles (with type-ahead feature), Files, Forums and so on. You can also use it directly from the URL navigation bar, by typing "sc" (without any quotes) following by a space then your query. Then press enter for a global search or arrow keys to reduce the scope. changelog ================= V6.1: - popups now have a "clear all" button - new keyboard shortcut available to toggle notifications V6.0: - IBMers SAML support for Cloud edition - Cognitive status updates analyse (can be enabled from settings page) - various bug fixes V5.6: - Notifications which include followed tags are now displayed with a tag indicator - QuickSearch can now run in background, even when Chrome is closed V5.5: - QuickTag tool (available in groups panel) V5.4: - QuickSearch Level (a small gamification system to discover every quicksearch features) - Bug fixes in status updates V5.3: - Fixing various bug - Can now expand/collapse left column for better view on small screens V5.2: - New MyNotifications quick access, accessible from the quick access bar. - Old view introduced in 5.1 is still available because it's the only way to display notifications with a keyboard shortcut - Can now create an user group from the contextual menu in any Connections page (from whole page or selected text) V5.1: - New MyNotifications view, accessible from a double-click on the QuickSearch button or from a keyboard shortcut V5.0: - Now able to display a preview of the pending notifications in the QuickSearch tooltip - The notification counter can be reset (using a keyboard shortcut) - Various bugs fixed V4.9: This version contains mostly all the new features which were also implemented in the onprem edition (from 4.3 to 4.9) - Now able to @@mention a community when sharing a message or an url (use @@ instead of @ for a person).
