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.

Adding Facebook Like to my IBM Lotus Notes Domino Custom Blog
05/21/2010 03:44:00 PM by Chris Toohey
Via simple Formula and a well-documented (and simple) process, I recently added the Facebook Like button to all posts on the IBM Lotus Notes Domino Custom Template that runs this site!
The idea is simple: add a simple IFRAME Element to each post footer, which communicates with the Facebook Like API and passes it the permalink URL for the given post. There's even a markup-builder online form that will get you started!
The most difficult part of implementing the Facebook Like across the various blogging platforms that I've seen is that you need to include the post URL permalink in the IFRAME Element
src Parameter. For those of you using IBM Lotus Notes Domino (especially with your own custom templates -- like me) that's pretty simple!
The post content displayed on the main page of this site as well as across the various pages that contain the specific categories are all driven off of View Design Elements and each post from a NotesDocument.
So, to implement the IFRAME Element-based Facebook Like per post, I use the following Formula:
basehref := "http://www.dominoguru.com/";
url := basehref + "pages/" + permalink;
"<div class=\"fblike\"><iframe src=\"http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=" + url + "&layout=standard&show_faces=false&width=450&action=like&
font=verdana&colorscheme=light&height=35\" scrolling=\"no\" frameborder=\"0\" style=\"border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px; height:35px;\" allowTransparency=\"true\"></iframe></div>"
The result? The Facebook Like IFRAME Element -- complete with the individual post URL -- is positioned in the footer of each entry:
When I get around to re-designing this site in XPages, I'll most likely go the Custom Control route which would simplify this whole process, not to mention streamline the NotesDatabase (reduction in View Design Elements, etc.).
