Use RSS as interest profiles

Instead of emails let users receive their interest profiles as RSS (similar to Google Alerts).
 
There are two main advantages for switching to RSS:

User profiles from other NSFsView Linked Idea

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
In 851 the user profiles need to be defined in the discussion database directly. However most users don't want to enter this data redundantly. This feature will allow pulling data from other discussion databases where users have already defined profiles or from any other custom Notes database.

User interested topics viewView Linked Idea

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
A new view should be provided with all topics that users have an interest in. This view however shouldn't be a static view that needs to be maintained manually (like My Favorites) but it should be more intelligent by using the users' interest profiles (see 004).

In 851 users can ...

Better user experience for view navigation

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
With the 851 web user interface it is very hard to find interesting topics via view navigation. Part of this is a rather poor real estate management. There are also some inconsistencies to the normal Notes/Domino view navigation around expand/collapse.

See here for more - idea 017.02

Improved full text search

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
The full text search in 851 has some limitations. For example search results cannot be re-sorted.

Also there is no way to do parametric searches (e.g. search for topics with certain state).

See here for more - idea 017.03

Better navigation within topic

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
It should be possible to see in an opened topic where in the tree the user currently is. In 851 only the responses to a document are shown, but not the parents.

Additionally to better use real estate it needs to be possible to only show the subjects of responses ...

Allow custom views

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
Notes/Domino always allows the creation of new views but for the discussion we also need to allow these views to show up in the navigator and to use the same look and feel like the other views. These custom views often use custom fields to filter topics.

Allow custom fields in topics

: Discussion Next Gen
: discussion next gen
Maybe the most typical extension to the discussion template is to add new fields to topics, e.g. a role field 'developer' or 'end user'.

This needs to be possible without touching the original design elements.
