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)

A quiet farewell Lotus 1-2-3, Organizer and Smartsuite
Sun, Oct 5th 2014 11:45p   Mat Newman
Last week a fairly significant date passed without much fanfare: The Withdrawal From Support (WFS) for some of the best desktop software ever created in Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Organizer and the Lotus Smartsuite office package. This - of course - followed on from the announcement that these iconic products would be withdrawn from marketing effective the 11th of June, 2013. WFM is the term used to signify that a product will no longer be available for purchase by customers. WFS means that a prod [read] Keywords: ibm lotus symphony applications desktop development integration office openoffice
