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.

Using LotusLive with Google Chrome
06/24/2011 02:26:49 PM by Chris Toohey
Lotus Connections - specifically, LotusLive - can be picky when it comes to browser support. Here is a quick way to get LotusLive working in Google Chrome (until someone updates their User Agent accept list!)
Google Chrome supports a switch named --user-agent, which can be set in the Windows Shortcut Target using the following syntax:
For example, I have a Google Chrome shortcut setup to report as Mozilla Firefox 4.0.1:
C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1"
Once I close all instances of Google Chrome and re-launch it using my updated shortcut, I'm able to successfully spoof the Google Chrome UserAgent:
LotusLive Meetings apparently employ a whitelist of supported Web Browsers and blocks everything else. It appears that Google Chrome is not on that list:
However, after changing my UserAgent via the
--user-agent switch, I'm able to successfully use LotusLive.com Meetings with Google Chrome!
While this allows you to start meetings in Chrome, the only way this method will allow you to click-and-join meetings via Google Chrome is if you already have an instance of Google Chrome opened which originated from the shortcut employing the
You can elect to modify your system registry and add the
--user-agent switch, which will allow you to click-and-join a meeting without the need to have a switched-instance of Google Chrome already running... but you could run the risk of negating any Webkit-friendly functionality that a site might be offering based on your reported UserAgent.
Thus, you can instead opt to report your UserAgent as Safari (which of course works fine...):
C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.21.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.5 Safari/533.21.1"
At the end of the day, it's kinda silly that you have to employ such measures just to use a quite-frankly slick solution like LotusLive.com... and perhaps I can reach out to whomever manages the whitelist and see if we can get Google Chrome added.
At least there's an option for those of us using Google Chrome and LotusLive.com Meetings!
