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.

These web and phone conferences are a great way to learn the latest community education offerings for the Lotus product portfolio and to also collaborate with IBM, Business Partners, and customers. Joyce and crew at Lotus Technical Information and Education are always looking for ways to improve the monthly community meetings. Joyce recently posted a question to the community via Twtpoll:
Take a few seconds -- literally -- and give the LTIE crew some feedback to help them make these community meetings even better!
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...

I was contacted today by the team at Silanis who gave me a heads-up on their most recent product offering: e-SignDoc and e-SignRoom for IBM LotusLive.
Sean Poulley mentioned during an interview a while back that (I'm not quoting, since I lost my notes...) the strength of the LotusLive platform was both it's ability for the IBM Business Partner network to create awesome 3rd-party add-ons to the service and also to allow LotusLive to go behind the firewall and integrate with the in-house technology. He put it much more poetically than I just did, but that was the basic idea.
After just completing a project which required that I print a web-based form to sneakernet-style signatures... I can not stress the importance of e-signatures in web-based workflow applications! e-SignDoc and e-SignRoom services look like a decent solution to handle e-signatures in the LotusLive cloud!
