QuickSearch is an extension I wrote for Google Chrome which let you search content within IBM Connections directly from your favorite browser.
Located at the upper right corner of your chrome window, it let you search names or keywords accross all IBM Connections services. You can also see in one glimpse if you have pending notifications and/or actions required :
Quick tip : RED icon = Action(s) required, ORANGE icon = New notification(s), BLUE = Both (use the button tooltip to have the exact number of each)
A typeahead feature is also available while searching through Profiles by name :
An interesting feature : you can fire a search directly from the navigation bar (aka the omnibox), all you have to do is to type ic followed by a space then followed by your search terms (and you can also use arrow keys to select a smaller scope) :
Then you will be redirected in IBM Connections search page ! I have to admit that I am using this omnibox search 95% of the time !
A quick note about bookmarks : if you search bookmarks directly from the popup window of the extension, links will be searched by tags and displayed directly in the popup. They will remains in memory until next search (see "Latest Bookmarks Search" in the previous screenshots above). If you search bookmarks from the omnibox, you will be redirected in the Connections search results page.
If you select some piece of text within any page, there is also a contextual menu to fire a search from the selection :
You can also share the current URL on your Connections' board or someone's board :
And share any IBM Connections File to several people in one click using the group feature :
And last but not least, QuickSearch is able to update your profile picture ! No picture on your hard drive ? Well, if you have a webcam then it's not a big deal :
Hope you like it :)
