SmartCloud Tip #8: When Person Docs don’t synch
Tue, Jan 6th 2015 2:11p   David Hablewitz
I have encountered occasions in a hybrid environment where some person documents don’t appear in SmartCloud so they are not available for addressing mail and are not available for provisioning, as in the case of creating a new user.  The issue turned out to be that the entry in the Manager field on the Home/Work […]

SmartCloud Tip #6: Dealing with Middle Initials
Sun, Dec 28th 2014 10:10p   David Hablewitz
In a Hybrid SmartCloud environment, if you have users in SmartCloud who have a middle name or middle initial, that information does not get added to the SmartCloud directory automatically as there is no middle name field. It shows up in the IBM SmartCloud Notes area, but not in the User Accounts area under Manage […]

Roadmap of IBM Connections and IBM Connections Cloud (SmartCloud) Explained
Tue, Nov 25th 2014 5:12a   David Hablewitz
(Note: because the features of IBM Connections is so tightly tied to releases in IBM Connections Cloud, this story applies to both) On September 24th I published an article analyzing the Gartner report about Social business offerings.  In it I mentioned the lack of a roadmap for IBM Connections Cloud (SmartCloud).  The issue keeps resurfacing.  […]

It is still quite dark outside.  Charlie, our rooster hasn’t even woken up yet.  That reminds me of something […]

Quick Tip: Using the “like” feature in IBM Connections for more than just liking a file
Wed, Sep 10th 2014 6:13a   David Hablewitz
The Like feature in IBM Connections is a great way to show you “Like” a file that has been posted.  But don’t get caught up in the mindset of Facebook “likes”.  This feature can also be a shortcut for a document review cycle.  Instead of creating todos in an Activity and assigning it to each […]

SmartCloud Tip #05: Problems for mail and calendar delegates. You’ll get tons of helpdesk calls if you don’t do this.
Mon, Sep 8th 2014 6:12a   David Hablewitz
One of the points IBM stresses during your migration to SmartCloud is to migrate delegates of mail files, calendars, and contacts either ahead of or at the same time as the people who delegated them (delegators).
