Notes 8.0.2 comes with a new feature to disable the export of view data. You can enable the feature in the application properties. The feature is great but has one disadvantage. When you disable the export and Samantha tries to export data from a view, from the security aspect the application behaves as designed. From Samantha's point of view it looks like Notes does not work correct. There is no hint for Samantha that the export is disabled in this application. ( unless she takes a look at the application properties, what Samantha never would do ) So IBM, please either disable the menue option for exporting data when the “Disable Export of view data” is checked or at least show a message box to the user who tries to do an export.

Ulrich I agree and support your idea. Some indication needs to be provided to the user that they are trying to do something that the database manager is not letting them do. Good catch.

Absolutely; cardinal rule of UI design!
