Very cool way of directly accessing your Lotus Connections files! Louis describes how to configure Google Chrome to search your Lotus Connections site directly from the search bar.

  1. Open Chrome
  2. Go to Preferences
  3. Under Basics, you’ll see Default Search set to Google. Click on Manage
  4. Click on the + sign to add a new search engine
  5. Set the Name to Lotus Connections, the Keyword to lc and the URL to https://<hostname>/search/web/search?query=%s (for example: https://w3.ibm.com/connections/search/web/search?query=%s). It should look like this:
  6. Click Ok
  7. Optional: Select it and click on Make Default
  8. Close the Preferences panel.

If you didn’t set Lotus Connections as your default search engine, here’s what you do. Say you want to search for “enterprise2.0 software”. In Chrome’s omnibox, type “lc enterprise2.0 software” (w/out the quotes) and press Enter. And voilá, you’ve now searched Lotus Connections directly from the browser without needing to open Connections first and logging in.

Enjoy!
