I will speak with the lovely Sharon Bellamy James at ICONUK 2018 which is in Birmingham Sept 13-14.
Our Session will be on troubleshooting IBM Connections
I will speak with my friend and guru Martti Garden at Social Connections 14 which is in Berlin Oct 16-17.
We will show how to install step-by-step IBM Connections Component Pack, i.e. the Pink components.
At DNUG 45 Danielle Baptiste, Director of Offering Management, has given a presentation on the Connections Roadmap. Here are the most important news announced.
In a future Cumulative Refrash will be introduced new UI for Files, Communities and Notifications
Files UI now is this, defaults to My Drive
In the future the UI will be this, defaults to All Files
There will be the possibility of searching for keywords in file names
For Communities the actual UI is this
and the future one is this
Also here there will be the possibility of filtering by keyword
For notifications, the actual UI of the Newsletter is this
And it will change to this
Let’s talk about PINK now.
In a while will ship the new version of Component Pack 22.214.171.124, and the big news is that it will not contain anymore IBM Provate Cloud, also known as Conductor for Containers. This because IPC has grown bigger and bigger and getting rid of it will make the architecture simpler. The downside of this is that now we have to install Kubernetes manually before installing CP 126.96.36.199 .
The next PINK service that will be released is the People service, which is a big enhancement to the actual Profiles. Here are some screenshots of what it will look like
At Engage Barry Rosen from HCL and Drew Birnbaum from IBM gave a session on the future of VoP.
There will be a new release before V10, in the July-August timeframe
Here are the features planned
The there will be a V10 version when Domino 10 ships, these are the planned features
Then there will be a series of continuous releases between V10 and V11. These are the features planned for the first post V10 release. Number 1 is the ability of importing ics files
I have the honor of being selected as speaker for DNUG for three years in a row. This year I will be speaking about troubleshooting Connections.

This happened to me and to a customer. When moving our server to a different machine I forgot to move the credstore.nsf database; while my customer simply did not create it.
In both cases VoP was showing the email correctly but the calendar was empty; as soon as we fixed the issues, moving and creating the db, the calendar started working perfectly.
I have no idea of the relationship between the credential store database and the Verse calendar, but the fact is that without the db the calendar will not work.
Here it is if you are interested
