About this app

HCL® Connections (formerly IBM® Connections) is social software for business. It enables you to build a network of colleagues and subject matter experts, and then leverage that network to further your business goals. You can discuss ideas, work collaboratively on presentations or proposals, share photos or files, plan and track project tasks, and much more. HCL Connections is a server product that is deployed on your company intranet or the IBM Cloud. This HCL Connections mobile app extends access to that server for employees who are on the go directly from their Android™ device. This app can also be securely managed by your company administrator through server side policies.


- Securely drop documents, presentations and photos to your colleagues with Files.
- Find experts in your organization and build a social network with Profiles.
- Join together with others to accomplish business goals through Communities.
- Influence and share your expertise through Blogs and Wikis.
- Get everyone on the same page using Bookmarks.
- Track your project progress to success with Activities.
- Share news, links and status across your network at any time.


Requires Android 6.0 or later.


In order to access your company Connections server, you will need a userid and password along with the URL address of the server. The app will prompt you for this information.

If you are an end user and experiencing a problem, please contact your company IT help desk. If you are a Connections administrator experiencing a problem, please open a PMR with your customer number.

We have this app for work now and it was working and now says the server url is wrong or its blocked by a firewall? It all of a sudden stopped working in December and hasn't been fixed yet. Can someone help get this figured out? Very frustrating and not sure what end it's on.

Hi, we apologize for any issue you might be having! Could you send logs with debug logging enabled through the settings links via the overflow menu to heyhcl@pnp-hcl.com? Also include environment information such as if you're using an MDM.

We use this app for work and it worked in the past but after my phone update it keeps saying check the URL and make sure you have permission. I don't know what it's talking about. So frustrating

We'd like to help you get this issue resolved. Can you enable debug logging via the overflow button settings menu attempt to login and then send the logs to heyhcl@pnp-hcl.com?
