Thanks all for the good suggestions and advice. I like the My Activity
suggestion the best, but will be bringing the thread to the design group.
We already have a My Applications, My Favorites, and My Account so My
Activity fits right in with the existing scheme. The difference between
what we've got and the new portlet is active verses passive. A user must
take action to add a doc to My Favorites or an app to My Applications, but
the new protlet will be passive and just show a list of what they've looked
at recently or frequently.

Apologies if it was not clear in my earlier post that this will be a
personal list, different for each user.

The portal code is pretty limiting and I just came from a meeting with our
lead developer and she stated that the code does not permit
variable/dynamic titles for the portlets so we have to pick something
static. It is indeed folding four portlets into one, but that's what we've
got space for so now the trick is to come up with the most usable design
for it that we can. having a good clear name helps quite a bit.

Now off to do my paper prototypes!

Thanks again
