What is the Rational RFE Community?
The Rational® RFE Community is a place where you can collaborate with Rational development teams and other product users through your ability to search, view, comment on, submit, and track product requests for enhancement (RFEs).
The community acts as a front-end database bridged to the back-end Rational ClearQuest® database called RATLC. New submissions, user comments, status changes, and developer comments are bridged between the Rational RFE Community and RATLC several times a day. The bridge to RATLC allows our development teams to work with the process and tools they are most comfortable with, while allowing our users to collaborate in an open community environment.
With this change, we can:

Working out loud .... and thinking out loud. I've seen this phrase several times on the internets, and I think it's my new favorite tagline for the way I like to work, and the way a collaborative enterprise works best.
It's also a great mindfulness practice, if you are inclined that way, and goes a long way toward transforming your workflow to a more collaborative open and transparent model. But what does it mean?
Simply, it means making your work visible, even when it's in that ugly semi-formed concept phase (then we call it "thinking out loud"). How else are you going to iteratively and agilely collaborate with your stakeholders to ensure your "thoughts" align with their needs?
Connections Activities are my new favorite way to "work out loud". Each and every project I undertake has an Activity where I record and store actions taken, milestones, hiccups, and the in-progress artifacts of my ongoing projects for collaborative and awareness purposes .... creating a documented pattern/workflow for reuse. Activities can be shared with Connections Communities, and with individuals. There is notification functionality that allows you to, say, post the latest version of your documents and let folks know it's available for review.
Compare that to working days on a file on your personal desktop, emailing to 20 individuals for review, and then learning you built the perfect wrong thing,
Or processing 20 separate revisions of the document in your inbox over the next several days (weeks?).
Or having to produce status reports for each of your projects every week.
Be transparent. Live out loud. I think you'll like it.

What you can expect:
Like all the prior top content posts month-to-month, these technotes are the most often cited and shared in our Support Engineers' PMR notes all used to help you solve or prevent issues with your Rational products. Last month the following technotes were the most heavily reused for Rational Team Concert. We hope that highlighting them here will help others encountering the same or similar issues also find quick resolution:
