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.

As I've mentioned before: surround yourself with brilliance, and sometimes you get contact-smarts! ;-)
Tim and I were discussing a while back how he had built an application that would allow him - during a new project meeting - to literally build a Lotus Notes client application via a simple checklist of common design elements and various components. The result was a huge jumpstart to a new Lotus Notes project application, which would often require nothing more than some minor tweaking to get something that you can put in front of the project champion.
So the other day it hit me - if you had two NotesApplications - one to act as a simple container of design elements that were in themselves "components" of various NotesApplications, and the actual functional "utility" application that did nothing more than list said "components" and design elements with descriptive information... combined with a New/Existing NotesDatabase "builder" wizard - well, that would just rock!
So it's with that in mind that I annouce Project Nexus - the next utility application that I'll be working on here outside of a few updates to Showtime and SOTU that are well overdue in this developer's opinion. But I'm getting off topic here.
For those of you who (like me) enjoy pretty pictures:
Here we see a user (Mr. Gray), completing the wizard from the Nexus Utility NotesApplication by selecting the "Descriptive Components" entries. So, for example, Mr Gray wants the ability to easily export NotesDocument data from your "Target NotesApp" to Microsoft Excel. One of the "Descriptive Components" entries is titled Excel Export Templates. Once selected, the "Utility Build Engine" would then grab the Design Elements from the "Nexus Storage" NotesApplication - said Design Elements defined as a list in the Excel Export Templates entry - and copy them directly into the "Target NotesApp".
With this utility, you'll not only be able to ramp up your Lotus Notes/Domino Application Development Projects, but you can easily establish a solid enterprise-level development architecture for your organization.
Now I just need to find the time to build it ;-)

I find myself using wizards to create or modify documents in my day-to-day Lotus Notes applications - their utilization allows me to drive the user through the applied business logic while providing them with a simple user interface. I think it's both great UI design practice as well as an eye-opener for us Lotus Notes client developers who think that the only way to create and modify the NotesDocument is via it's form NotesItem-designated Form Design Element.
But enough of that, let's get to the goods:
Open this database in the Domino Designer client and we'll see the (app/wizard/wizarddocgen)|wizarddocgen Form Design Element. And that's where the fun begins! ;-)
