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 ...

Automatic location switching - based on IP

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: location document, location, passthru
Marcel Damseaux198 - 09 2011 / (0)
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 ...

Change file location where Notes opens attachments

: Notes Client / Other
: attachment, file, location, folder, temporary
Brad Harris170 - 26 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Provide the capability to use authenticated proxies in the Location Document

: Notes Client / Mail
: images, location, notes, ntlm, proxy
Gregg Eldred8655 - 16 2011 / (0)
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 ...

Automatic Smart Location Switching

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: location
Hynek Kobelka7940 - 08 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Track open Notes window tabs when changing locations/Domino domains

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: location, document, saving, tabs
Bill Malchisky12192 - 10 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Password dialog: make "At location" field properly react on character keystrokes again

: Notes Client / Other
: location, dialog
Stefan Meyer3029 - 06 2009 / (0)
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 ...

Allow to switch to current location

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: location
Jens Polster2418 - 30 2007 / (0)
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 ...

Ability to Disable Workspace Pages per Location or User-ID

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: workspace, workspace page, location
Stefan Meyer3029 - 15 2011 / (0)
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, ...

Recipient name type-ahead

: Notes Client / Contacts
: configuration, location
Markus Niedermaier65 - 22 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Add physical location (site) to calendar free time availability

: Notes Client / Calendar
: location, resource, site
Nick Radov1404 - 01 2008 / (0)
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 ...

Secondary Locations - "Location Pet"

: Notes Client / Mail

Jamie Colpean1010 - 23 2008 / (0)
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.
  1. Working happliy along in corporate Notes mail
  2. Want to check my pop3 mail or ...

Button to enable / disable proxy

: Notes Client / Other
: proxy, settings, location
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 05 2009 / (0)
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.

update function for location documents (mailserver, internetaddress...)

: Notes Client / Other
: location, directory, policy
Michael Tassati5289 - 19 2010 / (0)
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 ...

: Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: startup, folder, location
Martin Vogel2501 - 20 2007 / (0)
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)
