The most useful view in IBM Lotus Notes that you’re not using

The Workspace is a view that shows all of your IBM Notes apps and databases -- Mail, Notebook, Contacts, and much more -- like so:

A sample of the IBM Lotus Notes Workspace view, showing Mail, contacts, Notebooks/eProductivity Reference Databases, Address Book, and DominoBlog website database

I've been astonished to find that many Notes users don't have access to the Workspace by default. Most of my life life in Notes is lived out of this view, and I can't imagine working without it.


(By the way, it sure looks like one of the smartphone manufacturers in Cupertino has copied this same tile-style interface in their shiny, cool "i" devices. I'm just saying).

Here's how to get the Workspace if you don't already have it:


1) Enable bookmarks, if you haven't already

(See here for my earlier blog post on three steps to get the most out of bookmarks).

To enable bookmarks, select View > Dock the Open List

2) Open the Workspace from your bookmarks menu

Select the "Applications" bookmark. This is indicated by the red arrow below.
Click 'Workspace"

3) Set the Workspace as your home page (optional, but highly recommended)

Select the "Applications" bookmark
Right-click the Workspace
Select "Set Bookmark as Home Page"

If you don't want it as your home page, you can also just drag the Workspace tab onto the bookmarks bar to create a bookmark to it.

4) Customize your Workspace to group your apps in the best way for you

To start with, you'll probably have just one page on your Workspace -- but the cool thing is, you can organize all your apps into pages in whatever way makes most sense to you.

To create a new page, right-click the header of your Workspace and select "Create Workspace Page."

You can modify the titles and colors of your existing pages by selecting "Workspace Properties."

Have fun with that!

July 5 issue: 3 Domino servers unable to send SMTP mail
Wed, Jul 5th 2017 8:39p   Eric Mack
OK Yellowsphere, is this an unusual coincidence? A serious Issue? Short version: This morning, I discovered no outbound SMTP mail being sent from my primary Domino Server. Restarted Router tasks and then the server. No luck. I disabled the mail relay to allow Domino to send direct - same issue. Checked another domino server in a different location and host - same issue. Checked with one of my customers and found that their Domino server is having the same issue today. I realize 3 Inde

Are you using IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook?
Sun, Jun 4th 2017 7:53p   Eric Mack
I am interested in the suitability of IMSMO in a < 10 user test environment in which the Notes client as well as the Outlook client will be used to manage Mail, Calendar and Tasks in a Mail file on the Domino Server. I would like to connect with someone in the Yellowverse who has successfully deployed IMSMO. I need to test something and would value talking with a fellow peer, IBM Champion or IBM business partner. I'd like to better understand the opportunities and caveats from those

How to migrate IBM Notes Notebook to Microsoft OneNote
Wed, May 3rd 2017 4:55a   Eric Mack
I have a question to ask and a tip to share Background I want to move some information contained in an IBM Lotus Notes Notebook (notebook.nsf or journal.nsf) into a Microsoft OneNote file. The documents in my Notebook.nsf contain rich text, attachments and embedded objects -- all of which I would like to preserve in OneNote. The Notes to Office 365/Outlook migration tools I've found migrate mail/calendar/contacts and some do tasks, but none so far migrate notebook.nsf which is separate f
