We’re looking to improve theFeed Reader in a future release of Notes. I know one of the hottest Feed Reader issues is authentication, andwe’re definitely investigating that area and will be looking for input on that at another time.
A design change we’re investigating is integrating the Feed Reader into the Mail navigator, so thatthe feeds can be viewed, previewed & managed like mail. Initially, this design poses 2 largequestions:
1. How do you want to manage your feeds? Do you want the feeds within your current folder structure (Figure 1), or as a separate high-level node in the navigator (Figure 2)?
Figure 1 (Feeds within Folders) Figure 2 (Feeds as Top Level Navigator Node)
2. Where do you want to store your feeds?
a. In the Mail file itself. This will be convenient as the feeds will replicate with the mail file. The downside is that the feeds will take up space and add toward your mail file quota.
b. In a separate .nsf.
c. Give the user the option of A or B (in a preference and also through policy). Similar to how Chat HIstory is handled now.
3. Also, we're interested in your general reaction to this design idea - i.e. moving the Feed Reader to the Mail Navigator.
