Hiding email addresses
- Install Lotus Connections before attempting to install and use the plug-ins. The plug-ins rely on the functionality of the applications provided in the Lotus Connections application.
- Do not configure Lotus Connections to prevent email addresses from being displayed. If you hide email addresses, the extensions will not function, with the exception of the IBM Lotus Connections Portlets for IBM WebSphere Portal and the connectors for Communities. The connectors listed below can be installed and will function in a Lotus Connections deployment that is configured to prevent email addresses from being displayed:
- Lotus Connections Community Connector for Confluence Wiki
- Lotus Connections Connector for Quickr
Enhance the other products that you use every day by making Lotus Connections applications available from them.
