Performance Tuning FAQ or Utility for Notes 8

: Notes Client / Other
: performance, notes_client, tuning
Ben Langhinrichs7382 - 07 2008 / (0)
There have been many complaints about the slow start-up and response times for Notes 8, and many rejoinders that say the problem is one of tuning or settings or configuration.  It would be great to have a "Tuning FAQ" (as suggested in this thread) or even "Check up ...

New Workspace

: Notes Client / Other
: workspace
Thomas Leriche1803 - 07 2009 / (1)
I'm really tired of the 1980's design of the workspace.  It has served Notes users well for over 20 years, but the time has come for a major and I mean MAJOR overhaul.  I look at the slick interfaces for iPhones, Blackberry, even Windows and wonder why my Notes workspace ...

Clear cache.ndk

: Notes Client / Other
: cache.ndk, clear
Jan J°rgensen777 - 10 2008 / (2)

It would be nice to have a possibility to clear the cache.ndk file from inside the notes client, it could be through the preferences menu.


Install Modemfiles as "optional" and not as default

: Notes Client / Other
: modemfiles
Bastian Wieczorek8390 - 27 2008 / (1)
Does anybody use the Lotus Notes Modemfiles which are installed with Lotus Notes? I doesn´t know a company who use them... BUT they are installed via default.
To give the user a cleaner installation (and eleminate questions what are modemfiles) I would like to have this files disabled in ...

Eliminate modal dialog boxes!

: Notes Client / Other
: modal, dialog, dialogbox
David Hablewitz15116 - 19 2008 / (1)
Get rid of all those modal dialog boxes.  There are times when it is desirable or necessary, but those are rare.  And Notes 8 makes it worse.  For example, in previous releases clicking on the location then Edit Current would open the location document as another tab.  Now, it opens ...

Allow tabs on Workspace to be re-arranged

: Notes Client / Other
: tabs, workspace
Jos Janssen1809 - 21 2007 / (0)

The only way that I know off  to re-arrange tabs is to create a new tab move all databases from the old one to the new one and then delete the old tab. If you have many databases on that tab , it is quite time consuming.

Craig Wiseman24988 - 11 2008 / (0)

When pasting rich text into a text field, please either paste it as plain text or allow me to choose "paste special - as text". I really DO get that "only text can be pasted into this type of field." please help me do this....

Do not allow replication if xx days since last replication"

: Notes Client / Other
: replication, properties
Ulf Grindstad2102 - 13 2007 / (0)
I want a property on databases that can prevent users from replicate local databases in to a server if it’s long time since they replicated.
This to prevent that old and deleted documents reappear in a database if a user has been away from the office for some months.

: create
David Dissinger435 - 04 2008 / (0)
Loading the notes 8 client with the eclipse backend takes a lot longer than the other versions.  Users get confused because it sits for so long and they think that it is locked up.  Then they kill the client and local processes get messed up.  There needs to be a ...

Ability to quick-select all documents in a category

: Notes Client / Other
: select, category
Robert Ibsen Voith4057 - 07 2008 / (0)
I wish I could quick-select all documents within a category. By this I mean like holding the CTRL-button while clicking on a category row, I would automatically select all documents within that category. Another click, and I deselect it. This could of course be configurable or programmable, If the category ...

Welcome Page should be completely policy control-able

: Notes Client / Other
: policy, welcome, homepage
Craig Wiseman24988 - 24 2008 / (0)

You should via policy be able to completely control what application is shown when logging into Notes. This was traditionally called the Welcome Page.

Example 1: When  users in the '*/Bob Costas Who?' OU start notes, it should display the frameset "CMA Welcome" from the local database CMA.nsf, rep ID 1322134132:23414321.

Extend Notes URLs to execute agents with parameters

: Notes Client / Other
: url, agents
Ben Langhinrichs7382 - 08 2007 / (0)
You can currently access a document in a Notes client by using notes://server/repid/viewid/noteid, but it would be really handy if this could be extended to allow notes://server/repid/agent?OpenAgent&MyArg1=arg1 and so on, with a CGI variable set in the agent in Notes the way it is on the web.  We already have ...

Make all the UIs independent threads

: Notes Client / Other
: threading
chris boote1632 - 21 2008 / (0)
All five 'clients' (Admin, Designer, Client, Debugger & properties box) should have their own threads and be independent of each other
That way I can look at the client or the designer when in debug mode
Or I can ALT-TAB from client to designer without having to close the properties ...

Select/Copy replica IDs

: Notes Client / Other
: unid, id, replica-id
Sergio Ramos1004 - 06 2007 / (0)
Sometimes users (or designers or admins), need to write the Replica Id of a db somewhere. In the db properties/info  box, you can see the replica id, but there's no way to select it, so you have to read it and manually type it where you need it.
This ...

Workspace update

: workspace, icons, desktop
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 03 2008 / (0)
after reading this post, I would more options to get my workspace organized:
- resizing icon size
- adding bg colors to my db icons
- mouse over effect, to give Notes some improved UI improvement (lighten up bg? thumbnail 'lightbox' effect of default db launch option?
- option to ...

More programmatic control over printing from Notes

: Notes Client / Other
: printing
Roland Reddekop4539 - 27 2008 / (0)
I hate having to provide users with manual instructions on how to print landscape. This should be an option so the user can just click on print. Also, what about backend classes to print programmatically so that certain reports, maybe as PDF's can be produced via scheduled agents. I guess ...

Show categorized columns when displaying search results

: Notes Client / Other
: categorized, view
Jos Janssen1809 - 07 2007 / (0)

Most databases used categorized views. In my opinion they are one of the best features of Notes.Another great feature is the full text search. Sadly when you use these together, the view no longer shows the categories. (unless you choose to "Show all documents (Sortable)" That is to bad since ...
