Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

Speaking at IamLUG 2013: Gamifying Enterprise Applications with IBM Notes Domino XPages by @ChrisToohey
04/18/2013 12:10:00 PM by Chris Toohey
For those of you attending IamLUG (May 6-7 2013 in St. Louis, MO), I'm happy to announce that I'll be giving a session on enterprise gamification using IBM Notes Domino XPages.
Gamification is much more than giving someone a badge for their participation, and I'll be deep-diving into techniques employed in the gaming industry that are directly applicable to enterprise software and application development.
Here's the abstract:
Gamifying Enterprise Applications with IBM Notes Domino XPages
Gamification is altering the way users interact with enterprise applications. By creating an adaptive user interface based on user experience metrics and other gamification principles, we'll take you through how XPages can be used to help onboard new employees, educate employees on new business process, and improve user engagement, data quality and ROI. Learn how you can make any application easy and fun to use and implement these techniques within a week of getting back from IamLUG!
... so what can those attending expect?I'm currently working on 4 demo applications that showcase the techniques and tactics that I'll be covering in the presentation and time willing, I'll be opening up the end of the session for a Q&A.
And as mentioned, this isn't going to be a "see, when they use the app, you give them a little diamond next to their avatar..." rehashing of gamification, but rather showing you how you can employ the same tactics that game developers use to take a n00b and make them l33t!
Will you be attending IamLUG 2013? If not, what are your thoughts on the best way to get this presentation out to you? YouTube Live (then recorded)? Twitch or UStream?! Let me know in the comments below.

I am always thinking of ways that we, the IBM Notes and Domino Application Development Community, can engage developers both within our community and -- most importantly for the long-term success of IBM Notes and Domino as an application platform -- beyond the existing community.
OpenNTF.org is apparently not only always thinking, but always doing as they just announced their latest sponsored XPages and Connections development contests...

Did you miss the Wednesday 11AM livestream of the dominoGuru.com Hangout covering Enterprise Gamification for IBM Notes and Domino XPages application developers? Luckily, I've got you covered:
Chris Toohey (with Chris Warden, Monica Moira, and Roy Rumaner) discuss enterprise application gamification, personality profiling, and how IBM Notes and Domino XPages developers can get started using gaming industry tactics in their application development efforts. Salesforce automation, new hire onboarding, and more business topics are discussed!
I plan on having these hangouts weekly, and covering a variety of topics. If you're interested in a topic or even being a panelist, get in touch with me. If you want to participate during the actual livestream, simply tweet me and -- as you'll see during this week's hangout -- I'll do my best to respond.
Are you a fan of these hangouts? Like / Share / +1 to help spread the word, subscribe to the YouTube channel for the latest dominoGuru.com screencasts, hangouts, demos and videos, and make sure you follow me on Twitter @ChrisToohey for more!
I've setup a playlist for all of the dominoGuru.com Hangouts, which I'll be maintaining for all upcoming of these hangouts.
Surprisingly, I've already done more of these than we did episodes of YellowCast!
For those of you who enjoy these hangouts, remember that we'll be covering gamification today at 11AM Eastern US. Follow me on Twitter (@ChrisToohey) for more details and message me during the chat to participate!
