Per default Lotus Notes create 4 location documents in the local names.nsf:
But the normal user need often only one ... the Online one.
The user choose accidentally "offline" as ...
We use an Office location and an Internet location (which uses passthru servers in the DMZ with encrypted Notes ports), with different connection documents, so our users don't need to start/use a special VPN just to get to their mail.
That means I have to switch to the Office location ...
An annoying feature of Notes that I would dearly love to change is as follows...
You know how when you open an attachment on a mail document, it opens it in the temp directory under the Documents and Settings\UserName\Temp\notes???? folder? Often you forget after making modifications to ...
Within the Location Document, provide the capability to use authenicated proxies. Specifically, those proxies that use NTLM. WIthout this, organizations that use Lotus Notes/Domino and expect HTML mail, will always see a "red x" when viewing HTML mail that refers to an image somewhere on the internet. There is a TechNote that explains ...
It would be great if you could have policies applied to specific locations.
I have a policy to set the local proxy and this get's applied to all locations including Internet where no proxy is needed.
The application "Thinkvantage Access Connection" (available on any ThinkPad laptop) allows you to change several settings at once after you connect physically to a different LAN network. It recognises a LAN through a stored MAC address of the ethernet port.
This same functionality could be used in the Notes client ...
I know this is a niche situation, but for power users here that have responsibilities in multiple domains, when you switch location documents to another Domino domain and then go back, you lose the tabs previously opened before switching. So, have Notes track open tabs for each domain as part ...
When starting Notes I am prompted for password and my current location. In Notes 7 I could simply navigate in this dialog with the TAB key, and select the location by typing in its first character.
Notes 8 forces me to use the mouse. - At least to click ...
Previous Notes versions (as well as Notes 8.0 basic) allow me to switch to the current location again. This feature is gone in Notes 8.0 (the current location is greyed out).
While this may seem pointless at first it was an easy way for me to switch ...
If you have a sametime chat going with a colleague in another country, it would be useful to see at a glance what time it is on their ST window.
It may not be appropriate to suggest that meeting, or you may be keeping someone at work when they want to go home.
Using the mobile phone location, sametime should show the country or city where the user is located
It would prevent me from clicking on inaccessible databases. (Okay: on their icons.)
A disabled workspace page should not be hidden, but its tab may be painted differently, maybe grayed out.
Why? - Some customers allow me to use my laptop at their site. I also work at different offices, ...
Expanding the list of keywords in the field "Recipient name type-ahead:" with the possibility "Server then Local". Would avoid issues when users have the additional setting "Recipient name lookup" set to "Stop after first match" to get troubles with encrypting emails with wrong outdated keys of an person existing also ...
I would like a new calendar feature that would let me indicate my physical location as part of my availability. The Resource Reservations database already has a list of Sites so I should be able to indicate where I am at any given time. That way if my time is marked ...
Not all of my email / Cal / Contacts are provided by the company Domino server. Having to swtich location documents to check mail at an internet account is huge productivity drain.
this idea is actually coming from firefox where you can install an add-on to enable / disable the usage of a proxy.
nowadays I have to switch between location documents to use / not use a proxy.
a button/icon in the right-bottom would be more user friendly.
if you move a user from server a to server b you have to change the clients location documents manually or you have to create a special policy (or policy per server.....). Other person record changes are also to transfer manually to location documents (internet address, mailfile, domain, ....). i ...
Not sure if there already is a solution for this:
When I choose "Offline" as Notes location, I'd like to prevent Sametime from searching for servers. "Offline" - in my cases - means there is no network in reach.
Unfortunately Sametime does not care and searches for servers, It ...
In certain cases it would be useful when some links in the startup folder would started only in one location. In my situation i want to start a CTI application only in the location: Office (Network)
