When trying to sell Notes/Domino it'd be really helpful if the standard templates (Discussion/DocLibrary/Journal/Team Room, etc.) were updated to a modern Look & Feel and looked/worked work consistently between the Notes client and web. Maybe a little ajax-y?
Wouldn't it be great if we had full, complete DOM (Document Object Model) access to Notes design elements?
A quick example, first thing I could think of:
As Symphony is now integrated into Notes Client, it would be great, if a Lotus Script Class library could be provided. With greater integration between Notes Document Fields data exchange to Symphony documents.
Sometimes I want only some paragraphs of text to be printed, and not the whole document. If the documents are large, I almost need a whole tree just to have those 2 paragraphs on paper.
If I want some text of a memo next to me (f.e. if I'm solving ...
I don't know how many manhours this would have saved me, but ancient records finding their way back into dbs can often only be found by the added property. However this property is currently only available through the API making it more difficult to gather docs by.
I would like to be able to drag and drop documents from one Notes database into another, or from one tab to another.
Think for minute how useful this could be. You could embed a folder from one database into an outline in another database (eg. the mail template), ...
Add a tab on the server configuration document. There is quite alot of data in that one document, and it would be good to be able to add special comments there.
There are so many things that can be specially configured in that one place, that having a guide ...
Lotus Doc Manager is a lot better at version and draft document control. In fact, there really is no such thing in Quickr (unless 8.1 has it, which I can't install untill Novak gets his templates to work with it). Version control is a necessity for ISO compliance and good ...
I can't think of how many times I would have appreciated being able to get a handle on another document open in the UI. Ideally, the NotesUIWorkspace should return handles on whatever is open in the UI, whether its a database, view or a document.
With the impending demise of Domino Document Manager (or Dom.Doc, if you prefer), and since Quickr is suppossed to be the love child of QuickPlace and Dom.Doc, wouldn't it make sense to update and add the Dom.Doc templates to Quickr? Seems to me you'd get a ton of functionality without ...
It would be great if Field Tab on documents properties dialog box (second tab) list all the fields grouped by field type (from document context it would Items grouped by Item type) . e.g. all Readers type fields should appear under Readers group similarly with Authors, Text , number type ...
I developed a website where there is a feature to sort/move the content documents. A sort/move action would modify (Sort Order Number) most of the documents. If some error came up, some of the documents will be in modified state and some will be in original state. This mess up the ...
There should be an option in connection documents (in the PNAB / local contacts) to flag a server as "unreachable" for one or more locations.
I do work for several different organisations, using VPNs for remote connection to their servers. Quite often, when I open the "recent ...
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 ...
the ability to have the document id of the selected document(s) returned without having to add a column with the documentID in it would save having to create those workarounds...
Allow document link to design elements (forms, views, agents etc) to be sent to other Notes developers.
If the recipient has Designer then clicking on the link will open the corresponding design element.
In a resource reservation database you can enable an agent "Purge Documents" which removes reservations older than 2 days.
I would like to have an agent for archiving old reservations, because we have a car pool and need in some situations (f.e. parking ticket or speed ticket fine) a detection ...
Several users have asked me to add an "expiration date" to their documents.
The rationale is that some documents have information that may not be good 6 months from now or 2 years from now, and users don't want to have to remember to go look at these things. ...
How about duplicating Word's ability to change the case of characters, not just to make the selection all upper case or all lower case, but "title case" (Where The First Letter Of Every Word Is Upper Case) or "sentence case" (Where only the first letter of the selection is made ...
In a existing response document, @InheritedDocumentUniqueID returns the @DocumentUniqueID. That is to say, only when the response being created, the formula behaves like what its name suggests. That's rather misleading. Why not return the parent document id, I think it's not so complicated for you can get it from $Ref.
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.
With Notes 6, the Domino server will prevent two users from editing the same document in the Notes client. Awesome. Additionally, the NotesDocument.CopyToDatabase method will not allow a document currently being edited to be copied. Why can't we tell via the NotesDocument properties who has a document open in edit ...
Sometimes users manage to find it and encrypt/lock with reader fields some documents. It is really a pain to resolve these problems. Please leave encryption and reader-fields up the the developers of the databases.
A special kind of view that can show documents that exist in memory only; are not saved to disk. This way I could compute joins on documents and "save" them to the in-memory document that would be shown in the view. Essentially any time I would create a stub document ...
It would be nice to have the option to highlight a document in a view and have the highlight move to that document when you switch to another view in that database. Sometimes it is necessary to see a document in a different context. For example, from a view containing ...
