I've noticed that over time you've written a bit about valid searches in Lotus Ntoes. Can you comment one way or another on whether or not this is a valid search method: To find documents in a view containing an empty date field manually by using the search bar or programatically using notesView.FTSearch: Not([fieldName] > 0) If this is a valid method, why isn't it documented? It is seems to work for you, fine. Many things are not documented. Sometimes this is because the developer didn't tell anyone about it, sometimes because it wasn't a planned feature (as I suspect is the case here), and sometimes because we don't want to commit to supporting it indefinitely. When you try to make each version of a product able to support applications created in all previous versions, you have to be careful about what you call a supported feature. So in general, if something is not documented, you should use it with care and make a special point to test it out before you upgrade your Notes/Domino installation, to make sure it still works in the new version. In this case, there's a supported way to do what you're looking to do. The "is present" syntax, which is documented, will let you find documents that do, or do not, contain a value in a given field. However, depending on your application, this may not be the most efficient way to do your search. Please see the wiki article Searching for Documents for some guidelines.
Design changes during SmartCloud Notes migration
Mon, Feb 24th 2014 11:00a Andre Guirard We've been having a problem with one customer who was migrating their on-premises mail users into SmartCloud Notes, because they ade a mail template change in their on-premises environment after giving us "staging" replicas of some users' mail files. The DESIGN task on the users' on-premises servers updated their mail file designs from the template, and this change replicated to users' local replicas (MMRs in this case). When the users replicated their local mail files with the service, th [read] Keywords: ldd
Processing multiple users in the SmartCloud Notes administration UI
Fri, Feb 14th 2014 9:00a Andre Guirard I thought I should note this change, since there's nothing in the "liveAdmin" UI (as yet) to indicate how it works. That will have to wait until we can translate the explanatory text into all our supported languages. But you can use the new functionality now. If you have a set of SmartCloud Notes users that you want to -- let's say -- assign a new mail file design using the web-based administration UI, you used to have to search for the user, select them from the search results, click the bu [read] Keywords: administration

Delete empty folders, take 2
Wed, Apr 10th 2013 9:50a Andre Guirard I while back I wrote a post containing code to clean up empty folders from user mail files. Yesterday, someone pointed out to me that it doesn't take into account the fact that folders that contain subfolders can be technically empty, in the sense of containing no documents, but we don't want to delete them if they have subfolders which are non-empty -- or if they have subfolders we don't also want to delete. So I came up with a new version of the code that deals with those situations. As bac [read] Keywords: ldd
