(make an Debug_enable_imap_client notes.ini setting for those who care)
Explanation: some People go and download the Notes Client trial code, and in the setup dialog there are being asked about IMAP server. Since 99,9 % of Notes ...
I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace. It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul. I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...
There is a serious need for IBM to come up with a fix related to document locking and this is not a fix, but will allow some relief to the administrators/developers.
Currently, only those identified as having Manager level access can actually unlock a document and in our organization ...
Get rid of all those modal dialog boxes. There are times when it is desirable or necessary, but those are rare. And Notes 8 makes it worse. For example, in previous releases clicking on the location then Edit Current would open the location document as another tab. Now, it opens ...
I've often thought that it would be good to have a freeware notes viewer that I could supply people with for offline reading of Notes databases. I don't think it would need to be very powerful, certainly I wouldn't expect web rendering or lotusscript (ie: no form load events etc)....
To allow us to really use them as replacments for Office, it seems to me like we'd need to be able to natively read/write:
Word Perfect 9 - 12
OpenOffice (not just ODF)
I am all for gratuitous self-promotion, but I have already bought the product. Is Lotus Notes still living in 1994?
Why does a dirty big splash screen have to dominate everything else my computer is doing. If you really must have a screen to tell the user ...
Our competitors used to say that classic Notes apps are look ugly. So, as todasy trend is to make apps not only working well, but look shiny, the UI generated for classic Notes apps should be changed also.
I know that we can make some great design ...
I was looking at this idea .. ideajam.net/IdeaJam/P/ij.nsf/0/834A4BA0093A41F48625752600585353 and this thought occured to me. In the battle for Hearts and minds of users. I think we need to make Lotus an @home as well as an @work product this gives users the continuity of useabiliity between the two spheres ...
In the Lotus Notes Client I can open any URL by typing it into the addressbar. Why there is no SSO between my Lotus Notes Session and the URL on a Domino Server in the same Domino Directory?

When you create a new database, the encryption setting defaults to "Medium Encryption for Current Username". It should default to "No Encryption". Many people who are new or not so experienced in Notes don't know that encryption can make all your documents and data lost forever, if you lose your ...
Be able to specify an Out of office without an end date.
Useful for people on a long sickness leave or even someone who has left the company.
MAPI-functionality was removed in R6. In order to support customers better and compete with Outlook, there should be a standard API-based way for 3rd party apps to access basic Notes email funtions.
It is incredibly frustrating to install many many 3rd party apps (Olympus' DSs Player Pro is biting me at ...
Create a small, end-user friendly applciation to essentially run all of the "n*.exe" programs in the Notes program folder.
In particular, the abiltiy to run "the big three" maintenance applications against one's local databases:

When converting Outlook users to Notes one feature asked for consistently in my experience is the ability to wrap an e-mail thread into an attachment and send it to someone. I am not talking about the mail history but something more.
I am not sure how it works in ...
Currently, Lotus notes has search facility depending on a single database. i.e if you want to search the mail/content having a word, you would have to first open the database (nsf file) and then search. It would be good if we have a search enabled for all the databases you ...
As part of the new workspace IBM might (and IMHO should) develop for Lotus Notes, a nice feature would be to have progress bars on the workspace icons, indicating that the application is currently replicating or copying.
Kinda like the Installing progress bars on the iPhone icons.
