MYTHBUSTING Outlook IS NOT better than Lotus Notes, pt 7: Colour Coded Calendar Entries
Mat Newman    

A client informed me the other day that Outlook was better than Lotus Notes because one can colour-code their Calendar entries in Outlook by Category.

Challenge AK...Septed!

Admittedly, this feature is NOT in native Lotus Notes, but - as you know - Lotus Notes can do anything, so a couple of modifications to the standard Calendar and ... voila!:

Image:MYTHBUSTING Outlook IS NOT better than Lotus Notes, pt 7: Colour Coded Calendar Entries

Colour Coded Calendar entries in Lotus Notes, By Category.  Easy.

As you may have guessed from the above image, I was planning the AusLUG agenda the other evening, and found this feature to be particularly useful.  Having the ability to have so many Calendar entries displayed on the screen at one time and identified by a Calendar Category, rather than by entry type certainly made them easy to identify.  Let's hope this feature makes it into the core product some time soon.

In the meantime, this tip shows you how to implement Colour Coded Calendar Entries inside Lotus Notes. Enjoy :-)



(BTW - this works all the way back to Lotus Notes 7)

The first time we met face to face, we engaged in a deeply geeky conversation about manipulating arrays of rich text objects that I brought to him late one night at Kimono's. It was my first Lotusphere back in 2008 and I had been hunting down the legends of the community to meet them in person for the first time. Tim was one of the folks at the top of my list that I had to meet, for reasons that many others have written about today in lament of his passing. Yes, Tim was a Genius.

Sametime contacts, a couple of things you might not know
Thu, May 1st 2014 2:06a   Mat Newman
One of my favourite features of IBM Sametime integration within the Notes client's side-bar is the way you can utilise contacts with Notes address features in Email, Calendar Meeting Entries and Group To-Do's. Many just use their Sametime contact list as a method of looking up contact details, or seeing whether someone is online. But there are some great features of the Sametime contact list that enable you to easily address messages, meetings, To-Dos, and even utilise the contacts from wi [read] Keywords: ibm notes notes client sametime email integration

Mon, Feb 10th 2014 8:35p   Mat Newman
This year at Connect I presented a session "IBM Worklight for IBM Domino Developers". The idea was to show Domino Dev's how easy it was to transition from creating pure browser-based applications utilising XPages with the Extension Library + Mobile Controls that are included natively with Domino 9 to creating a native application utilising IBM Worklight which has IBM DOMINO as the back end data service. There were three demonstrations included within the presentation: Building a mobile [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes xpages application applications database eclipse mobile properties
