Bookmarks (aka Dogear) in IBM Connections is great and IBM provides a nifty bookmarklet to allow easy bookmarking from your browser. I couldn’t however make this bookmarklet work in Safari on iOS so I decided to look into it. And I’m happpy to say I got it to working with some inspiration from the Instapaper bookmarklet. The way it works for me now is that I have the bookmark bar visible on my iPhone and iPad and when I need to bookmark I use the bookmarklet which redirects to the IBM Connections bookmark page and back to the original page once done. Super easy and it works great.
Here is how to make it work.
- Open Safari and make a bookmark to a random page but be sure to place it in the bookmark bar (the bookmark bar can be made visible all the time in Safari options).
- Edit that bookmark and change the title to something that makes sense (I use “IV Dogear”).
- Save the bookmark and start bookmarking.
