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.

I recently signed up as a LinkedIn App Developer, which gave me an shiny new API Key to allow me to leverage LinkedIn for IBM Lotus Notes Domino Web-based application authentication via OAuth with some pretty slick results. Really makes SaaS/Cloud authentication easy when you're leveraging a business-specific social network vs. something like Twitter or Facebook.
Now leveraging LinkedIn is even easier...
Our JS API is brand new, so we're releasing it to get your feedback. In the coming months, we'll be adding features and enhancing functionality. Of course, we'll do our best not to break anything, but please understand that this is a beta release. Stay tuned to the developer blog for updates.
You can find out more information online at http://developer.linkedin.com/community/jsapi .

The aim of this utility is to allow users, administrators, and developers to search a document based only on its NoteID or UNID. There are many situations where you need to quickly get a document from a view and the only information you have is its NoteID or UNID... Now with this utility you start typing for example "NoteID: 2E34A" in the standard "Starts with..." dialog and Notes will find the 2E34A NoteID instead of searching the document starting with "NoteID: 2E34A".
Have an app that you think could sell? I can not recommend enough that you follow suit and get it out there!
Want to deploy Traveler 8.5.2 but can't upgrade your IBM Lotus Domino environment? Your iPhone, iPad, and Droid will thank you...

... did I tell you that I have an iPhone now? An iPhone 4, actually. And prior to that, I was testing an iPad. This on the heels of purchasing two iPod Touch devices for my children (oldest girl and boy birthdays are only a few calendar weeks apart).
And I can say that I'm becoming more and more of a fan of iOS. In fact, I'm currently downloading 4.1 while I write this post. My poor Zune 30 is sitting here on my desk, it's last charge well-past spent, and I'm almost completely used to the clunkiness of iTunes.
Why the sudden jump? Well, I have customers that wanted the iPhone... after a C-level employee was given an iPad as a gift.
Funny how that works, huh?
... the problem that this particular customer ran into was that they were unable to upgrade their Domino infrastructure. They are currently mid-upgrade of their environment, and for some reason are upgrading the Lotus Notes Clients before they upgrade their Domino environment. Cart before the horse, I know... but it's the reality that they're steadily working through.
So, how do you implement IBM Lotus Traveler 8.5.2 in a Domino environment that you can't upgrade?! Simple really... but let's first look at a standard Traveler implementation...

... have you ever had to open the Domino Admin client just to sign a freshly-downloaded OpenNTF.org project or a 3rd-Party NotesDatabase Template? One of the new Domino Designer features with 8.5.2 addresses this issue: you can right-click on a NotesDatabase from the Designer Working Sets Pane and sign it... but that's in 8.5.2.
Even in 8.5.2, you can't click-to-sign a NotesDatabase with a Production ID. Y'know... since you shouldn't let Domino Developers to write code in production, nor allow them - via their IDs - to execute code in production... so you have a Production ID.
That's where Tesla, my IBM Lotus Notes App Signer Utility, addresses a simple need: to quickly and securely sign a NotesDatabase Template without the need to access the Domino Admin Client (or the 8.5.2 Domino Designer Client for that matter...).

Remote Console v1.0 - IBM Lotus Domino Remote Console Command App for your iPhone, BlackBerry, or Web Browser!
07/19/2010 01:58:00 AM by Chris Toohey
Remote Console is an IBM Lotus Notes Domino Application (for Releases 6.0 and above) that allows you -- the Lotus Domino Administrator -- to create a list of Lotus Domino Console Commands accessible via smartphones (including the iPhone and BlackBerry mobile devices) and web browsers (including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome).
You can maintain the list of Console Commands via the Lotus Notes Client application user interface (Admin Client), which gives you the ability to restrict access to individual Server and Command Documents. You can perform Remote Console Commands against defined Domino Servers via the Web Browser or Mobile Device application user interface (User Client).
