Many thanks for all of your observations and comments abotu the Lock ID/Lock Screen feature. We're reading them and discussing them. Here are some more ideas based on a conversation I had with two developers yesterday.
First, you you know, the Hannover release introduces 2 new window management models. The admin can control which window management theme a user gets vis user policy. That, is, you can choose 1 of the following:
- Single tabs (just like Notes Today)
- Grouped tabs (the views and documents from each databases are grouped)
- Individual windows. (All the views are in one main window but each document gets opened in its own window.)
The developers think that can actually do the screen lock (Obscure the screen and lock the ID) of any and all tabs (even the ones for the IBM Productivity tools like the spreadsheet) when all the tabs are in the one window. It's the "individual window" case that really gums up the works. So, how about is we support the Lock Screen experience ONLY in the first 2 window management modes, and if your organization really needs/wants the Lock Screen, then you do NOT deploy the Individual Windows window management style?
Also, since a fair number of you have registered concerns with the fact that F5 is also refresh in a browser, we are considering giving Screen Lock a different shortcut key (or even no shortcut key at all, since you WILL have mnemonics and a menu item.). I cannot propose what the new key is yet because I'm going through a big trading exercise, comparing the shortcuts we get from Eclipse, Notes, and all three of the IBM Productivity tools.
I do admit that I am also considering mapping BOTH F5 and F9 to refresh. But having 2 keys do the same thing when I have so many applications vying for F keys will be a hard sell. Thoughts?
