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.

The release of RIM's BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has me honestly thinking that I'm missing out on some evolved platform and device experience since I gave up my BlackBerry Bold for my iPhone 4. And since I'm an amazingly selfish person, I've all but abandoned any BlackBerry platform mobile device development efforts.
... and I was a huge BlackBerry fanboy. Remember Showtime, my BES channel push utility for the IBM Lotus Notes client?! It was even showcased during a WES presentation in 2009!
But today I don't have a BlackBerry device (not counting my v5 OS-running BlackBerry Curve that is now the family extra mobile), be it a BlackBerry Bold, Playbook, or any of the like. Thus, my interest in writing for that platform has waned.
... that is, unless there is a solid need for supporting that platform by you, Constant Reader!
So instead of simply putting out a blog post to get an idea as to what devices you use personally as well as which devices you have to support in your company, I thought I'd have a little fun and try out a survey service...

Having recently built-out my new laptop - a Dell Mobile Precision M6500 - I thought I'd quickly share the list of apps that I use as a Lotus Notes Domino XPages Developer. I'll break this up into a few categories, and offer/ask that you add (via comment) anything that helps you as an IBM Lotus Notes Domino and XPages application developer...

I know, I didn't give you that much advanced notice, and despite another XPages webinar that was scheduled for the same exact time, we had a really decent turn-out.
If you missed my recent webinar on Mobilizing Apps with XPages, have no fear: as with all of GBS Group Talk webinars, we recorded it, and have made it available for playback.
Again, from our much-more-eloquent-than-me Marketing Team:
Learn about creating smartphone and mobile device-friendly User Interfaces and User Experiences for your existing traditional IBM Lotus Notes Client applications. In this 1 hour session we'll discuss development and architectural considerations as well as valuable techniques and code you can use to create a Mobile XPages app.
You can view this webinar, download the slidedeck in PDF format, and even download the example/demo NotesDatabases at gbs.com/en/videos.

Each Job Document allows you to define a source Spreadsheet, a target NotesDatabase, and additional @Formula-driven NotesItems that are evaluated at import Runtime.
The idea is simple: Each Row in your Spreadsheet == 1 new NotesDocument in the defined target NotesDatabase!
As of version 1.1, you can now choose a Job Document Type:
|Import||1 Row == 1 NotesDocument, aka direct import of the Excel Spreadsheet into the NotesDatabase.|
|Merge-Only||Using the first column of your Excel Spreadsheet to match the first [sorted] Column of your Target Notes View, you can now merge/update existing NotesData from a spreadsheet.|
|Merge and Import||When a match is found [see above], the NotesDocument is merged/updated. When there is no match for the defined key, the Row will be imported as a new NotesDocument in the NotesDatabase.|
Junction Lite allows you to import data sourced from Microsoft Access, SQL, or any other spreadsheet-generated data source.
Sales people tracking their leads and customer contacts in Excel? Bring that business-sensitive information into a Lotus Notes application within minutes with Junction Lite!
