Which Lotus Notes Client applications do your users need?

Patrick Kwiten posed the question: [What are some examples of] Great UI examples for [Lotus Notes Client] applications? While I replied with what I thought was a solid-enough response (check out the thread for the whole babbling mess), it's stuck in my mind far after hitting the Submit button. Just which Lotus Notes Client applications do your users need?

UI development should really be specific to the type and functional requirements of the given application. Alternately, "branding" is a big requirement for most company applications.

(that last part always drove me nuts - "You must have the company logo in the top left of the screen...", as if people would forget where they worked whilst in my applications?!)

But back on topic...

So what exactly are we all looking for out there? What do our users need? What are they asking for? This isn't a "killer apps" question per se, but rather a question as to what Lotus Notes client applications (or, maybe not something that you would even consider doing in the Lotus Notes client today). Let me know in the comments!

Off topic:

I've setup a Twitter account specific to YellowCast at You can sign-up to get information about upcoming episodes or posed-questions to the listening audience. So sign-up and watch that (and this) space!
