The idea is trying to improve notebook ( new feature in 8.5 release , formerly known as Journal ) utility. The notebook is used mainly to document and store general ideas, attachments, documents, etc.
When you are working outside Lotus Notes, maybe using the browser, or MS Office or Acrobat Reader, you use the clipboard to capture text, files, screens. Then, in order to store this in Notes, you have to switch to Notes, create a new Notebook entry, paste the contents, tag the document, save the document and go back where you were working. Then again and again. Not a very productive persperctive.
In order to solve this, Lotus could develope, and package with the Lotus Notes client, a tiny program that could be installed on Lotus deployment that:
- Started with the O.S.
- Captured text and screens
- Opened Notes and left it backwards or minimized.
- Created a new Notebook document
- Pasted the text or screen capture into the document
- Tagged the document automatically from preferences
There are commercial products that offer this functionality. Integrating this in Lotus Notes could make it more attactive for the end user and open the door to be used by the Home user.
