Right click 'Run on server' on agents in Designer

: Domino Designer
: agents, designer
Ulf Grindstad2102 - 19 2008 / (1)
I want to right click on an agent, and tell it to run on server now.
It's tiresom to wait for the Agmgr to kick in on a scheduled agent.

Allow agents to return a value

: Domino Designer
: agents, lotusscript
Slawek Rogulski9372 - 04 2007 / (0)
Agents should have the option to return a value to the calling sub/function.
The return value could be
  • a primitive
    Integer, String, ...
  • product object
    NotesDocument, NotesAgent , ...
  • custom class

Programmatically set agent schedule

: Domino Designer
: agents, schedule
Slawek Rogulski9372 - 26 2007 / (0)
I would like to be able to programmatically set when an agent is to be run on schedule. This may require an AgentSchedule class in which case add that, too.

Asynchronous Agents

: Domino Designer
: agents
Peter Presnell28487 - 09 2008 / (2)
I would like to see concepts such as AJAX replicated in the Notes Client with the ability to fire off agents that run asynchronously.  While the agent is running the user would have the ability to continue to interact with the Notes client.   Ideally the feature would provide (just as it ...

"Run On Server" Action in Agent design element listing

: Domino Designer
: agents
Mark Demicoli10736 - 29 2010 / (0)
During design-time, it is currently possible (and very useful) to run an agent by right-clicking on the agent in the design listing view and selecting Run.
Problem is, oftentimes an agent is designed to be run on the server.  It would be nice to have a "Run On Server" option ...

Agent Manager - schedule ahead...

Bill Buchan735 - 04 2008 / (0)
I've seen a LOT of workflow processing agents in Notes. And the one thing they all have in common is that they have to waken up at a regular interval, check all pending documents, and move around document status.

What any workflow system needs is the ability to ...

Agents that remain loaded and ready to respond to requests

: Domino Designer
: agents
Slawek Rogulski9372 - 02 2007 / (0)
The idea is similar to servlets that once loaded remain loaded and respond to requests. And if the agent should stop responding or in some other way abend it should be automatically reloaded. Also, such agents could be run in multiples in separate threads but appear as one agent.

Enable "Preview in Notes" Smart Icon when editing an agent

: Domino Designer
: agents
John Smart969 - 31 2008 / (0)

When designing an agent that doesn't run on a view or selected documents, I want to save it and run it in a single step.  I don't understand why I have to

  1. save it,
  2. go to the Agents list,
  3. find my new agent,
  4. right click on it,
  5. click Run
  6. ...

Change the default "Target" on new Agents to "None"

: Domino Designer
: agents, defaults
Kenneth Axi2537 - 03 2012 / (0)
When creating new (LotusScript and Java) agents, the default "Target" is "All selected documents". Today when almost every agent created is a webagent, this behaviour is not useful. On 99% of all agents, I have to change this to "None" or the agent wont run on the web. Therefore the ...

CTRL BREAK to end formula agent execution entirely

: Domino Designer
: agents
Paul Davies13558 - 10 2010 / (0)
if you had an agent which acts on many documentss and displays a message like this...
Select @all;
then CTRL BREAK does not terminate the agent, it merely acknowledges the @Prompt and the agent continues to the next document in the database. Your only choice is to ...

Sort Agents by disabled and enabled icons in Designer

In IBM Lotus Domino Designer, it would be nice to be able to sort Agents by the disabled and enabled icons.

Improve Speed For Deleting Agents In DDE

: Domino Designer
: dde, agents
Peter Presnell28487 - 23 2009 / (0)
SInce moving to DDE 8.5.1 it seems that the time taken to perform a basic task of deleting an agent from a database now takes a full minute.  To remove six agents takes six minutes.  As a developer i usually have lots of things to do and having to sit around ...

Agents with the option "Run in background client thread"

: Domino Designer
: agents, background
Vlad Sh10679 - 08 2010 / (0)
1. Each time you save a LS-agent message "A runtime error will occur if this agent requires user interaction. Interactive agents cannot be run in a background client thread. Do you wish to save?"; it's annoying...
I propose to remove this message, this can be written in for Help.

Give a flag for agents that keeps the selection afterwards

: Domino Designer
: agents, selected documents, view selection
Christopher Boote10606 - 30 2013 / (0)
We've all done it
You pick a handful of documents in a view, run an agent against them, and then grrrrrr - they aren't selected any more and you have to remember which ones you'd picked
Give an option (off by default) in the agent infobox that says something ...

Command line parameters for agents

: Domino Designer
: agents
Mark Demicoli10736 - 04 2010 / (0)
The "Tell AMGR RUN [db] [agent name]" is an invaluable option to immediately execute server agents.  As an example, I have a custom consistency check agent which validates and fixes data problems that runs on schedule, however I like to be able to execute it on specific databases ad-hoc, where ...

NotesUIWorkspace in Background Agents

: Domino Designer
: agents
Mark Demicoli10736 - 04 2011 / (0)
I'll express this idea by example  Deleting a large number of mail items can be time consuming and locks the UI.  This could be done with a background (assynchronous) agent, if it could interact with the UI once it's finished (eg if inbox is still in view, refresh it etc).  To ...

Design Refresh/Replace improvements for BE-Agents

: Domino Designer
: agents, designer, refresh, replace
Angi Blasberg612 - 28 2008 / (0)
It would be helpful, if there would be a special design-property for agents, that forces a refresh/replace only on the source - not the signature, schedule, scheduled server, etc.
With Backend-Agents you have problems with Design Refresh, that the agents properties, as "run on Server xy", Schedule, etc. are ...

Agent - Treat content as HTML

: Domino Designer
: agent, agents, passthruhtml
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 08 2008 / (0)
for ajaxian approaches it is not desired that agent print out by default html as you can see in the attached image. it would be nice if you could check a box which makes sure that web agents do not cast out more than you desire.
