Customizations available to Lotus Connections Profiles

View Comments
I've also been getting a lot of questions as to what can be customized and/or configured inside of Lotus Connections Profiles.  I'm also in the process of updating the Lotus Connections POT presentations to reflect this.  I, of course, wanted to give my faithful readers a sneak peek!!  So here you go:

What can be extended / changed in Profiles ?

  • Field names (e.g. Change 'Department Name' to 'Business Unit Name')
  • You can add up to 3 extra fields in 1.x and up to 99 in 2.0
  • You can change the order in which the fields are displayed / edited
  • You can change which fields are editable and which aren't 
  • You can specify which fields are synchronized back to the data source and which aren't
  • In 2.0 you can specify which fields show up in the business card
  • In 2.0 you can add extra links in the pop-up business card
  • Branding
And this is all done by modifying an XML file!  No code is needed -- this is purely configuration!!

Branding, of course, could require some coding if it's beyond changing colors and the nav bar logo.
