From SNAPPS Labs: Introducing SnappMap Sitemap for IBM Lotus Quickr
Rob Novak    

Back in the old QuickPlace days, SNAPPS had a great little product called AnyPlace Sitemap. It was an innovation in navigation, and we sold quite a few in a couple years. Then came Quickr in 2007, and without time to re-build and market, I decided to mothball the product and put it in the "free" category. It had a bit of heft and clunkiness, as it was implemented the only way possible at the time, as a form plus a document with options. But it was popular, as it could shorten end users' time navigating a place by minutes per day. Start doing math, and in one year a company with 20,000 users was saving hundreds of hours each month.

Now I'm pleased to announce that SnappMapTM Sitemap for IBM Lotus Quickr has been completely re-factored and renamed, and is now available as a widget component without the baggage of forms, documents, or old Dojo code. What does this mean? One server-wide installation, no maintenance of places, no tie to a template, and your users will have a fast and easy way to securely navigate their places.

With an Explorer-like interface, SnappMapTM expands and collapses Rooms, Folders (even the new secured folders), Libraries, Forums and Calendars. It's quite easy to drill down several rooms in a matter of seconds. Click on any resource, and the parent window goes straight there. No more "crawling" the site!

A picture named M2

SnappMapTM is available immediately (product page publishing soon) for a low cost per user...be sure to check back for more of the SNAPPS Treasure Chest over the coming days!

For those who don’t know, and care…I know the numbers are getting small here…: HF: “HotFix” – which in software terms generally means a specific fix for one problem, given out to customers on an as-needed basis and generally rolled up into other more comprehensive groups of fixes. FP: “FixPack” – what it sounds like, a package of fixes (some of which may have been deemed HotFixes), that when released is supported. Sometimes, a FixPack will in [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus quickr community mac security

One of the most often asked questions about Lotus Quickr in its golden years has been “what do I have?” — meaning, on the server and in the places. This is the case with any self-service platform and has been especially pertinent with Quickr, as IBM has unintentionally made some of its migration requirements quite difficult to get your head around. A basic for-instance: the requirement that all workflows be complete before starting to migrate a place. Super, makes sense.

Question of the year: what to do with Quickr
Tue, Jun 17th 2014 3:30p   Rob Novak
It’s been 16 months now since the end of marketing for IBM’s Lotus Quickr 8.5.1 (a less than desirable move, IMO, not that I’m biased). In that time, I have fielded questions from conference audiences and increasingly this year, clients and Quickr customers about what they should be planning to do. Sometimes, with Quickr applications or deployments in the thousands and tens of thousands of users. As I’ve mentioned before, support will go on for a while – most likely [read] Keywords: admin collaboration connections domino ibm lotus quickr application applications security server sharepoint websphere

And now for something not so completely different

This week is a week of announcements in our tech world (check the at wires 3AM EDT tomorrow, for instance…). My own announcement is that SNAPPS has become a partner with a new major vendor, Intuit, with their QuickBase online database SaaS solution. This effort is 8 months in the making, and I’m very pleased to say that after several visits with Intuit QuickBase folks both at their headquarters and other events, I’m very excited about the prospects of working together on the ne [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm lotus quickr apple application applications consulting database development microsoft

Well IBM’s Lotus Quickr 8.2 is going out of service a bit earlier than I anticipated. In fact, I was on a web conference with a client just today(!) and they showed me their custom 8.2 site and discussed their desire to export it and get the contents into SharePoint (yeah, I do that, sue me). Here’s the full announcement: http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?subtype=ca&infotype=an&appname=iSource&supplier=897&letternum=ENUS913-176 And the relevant details [read] Keywords: ibm lotus quickr sharepoint

So IBM released Fixpack 43 for Quickr Domino yesterday, and as I’ve not posted on the topic since Fixpack 36 more than a year ago…well just a reminder that you should be updating your servers with fixpacks as frequently as possible. With Quickr being EOM’d last year and with support set to go through April 30, 2016 (extensions available for $$$$ through April 30, 2019), you can imagine that the support organization at IBM is easier to work with when you’re on the latest v [read] Keywords: acl admin administration adminp collaboration connections domino ibm notes nsd quickr rich text css database development email firefox java javascript linux microsoft office outlook properties security server smtp widgets xml

Second session that is. In all the excitement of getting early notice of my first session “Running a Successful Pilot Program with Social Business Software” I somehow had it in my head that it was going to be my only session accepted this year. So I was a little surprised and happy to learn that another of my submissions has indeed been accepted. This one will be a lot of work, but hopefully worth it for the attendees. So look for it you Quickr fans and don’t miss it. I’l [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus quickr applications networking social software

With IBM Connect 2014 around the corner (we all know…it’s closer than the calendar leads one to believe!) the awesome content team folks decided to leak out some of the “Lotusphere” sessions early, a week at a time. I’m very excited to have been chosen to speak again this year. And, I’m joining forces with my friend and colleague Mac Guidera to offer twice the goodness for the same price. This will be my 19th “Lotusphere” and 13th as a speaker. S [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm lotus lotusphere community integration leak mac social software

It was 7:26 AM today when the email came. I am pleased and honored to be included once again in the group called IBM Champions! Here’s what it takes to be an IBM Champion, and what the benefits are… One benefit is that you can use the logo, so I got to tag “2014″ onto my caption over there on the right. Per the announcement site: These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge and help grow the community of professionals who are focuse [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm applications community email wiki

Quickr for Domino, removed from marketing and sales in May, still has a strong user base and support from IBM and partners (myself included — we do support for our enterprise clients, especially customizations). So Fixpack 41 was just released. As you can see from the dates, it’s slowed down a bit as they used to be monthly. But, there are some critical fixes (a couple of mine, so they must be!) included. Visit IBM Fix Central to download and install the Fixpack. Remember some best p [read] Keywords: acl domino ibm notes quickr email enterprise java microsoft office outlook server smtp widgets xml
