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 response from both Twitter and the various other social networking sites prompted me to create a quick MicroPoll:
Now, understandably, this is a pretty wide-open alternative with Frameset vs. 'Web', but I have this idea...
Look at the more successful cloud service solutions out there today. You're presented with - in most cases - a 3-column fixed layout with highly-stylized UI interaction with various functional nodes. Navigation to top-sections is fairly basic, with in-content drill-down options to specific content or functional sections.
This should be fairly simple to re-create within a Lotus Notes Client application without the *[conventional] use of Frameset Design Elements.
* - Have to give myself an out if there comes a situation where I'll need to use a Frameset in some unconventional ways.
And I know this won't be possible for every application-type within the Lotus Notes Client, as certain applications have certain user experience expectations... which begs the questions for those of you who might answer "We have a corporate standard UI": maybe that's a bad thing in some cases?

So I thought I had it - my dashboard application was complete. I had actually
stolen implemented the technique used by NTF - an ultra-slick hack to allow embedding a frameset into a form, but in doing so I find myself yet again at an impass...
My original architecture of this "dashboard"-style solution was simple enough - embedded views on a form that contained fields that were used as categories for the various embedded views. The problem with that, there was no user-configuration capabilities to allow them to add their own views to their dashboard. So, we move onwards...
Using Nathan's solution, I was able to easily design a user-configurable dashboard application - exactly what I needed... with one glaring exception - I couldn't display sub-categories of documents in the embedded frameset-based views. It again seems to be a matter of focus, as I have to rely on @SetViewInfo (unless someone has a better idea) to create a sub-category filter for the given view.
I even thought that I had gotten around this by (despite NOT wanting to do this) adding the @SetViewInfo in the PostOpen event of the the View I'm openning itself... but the @SetViewInfo seems to want to trigger, as far as I can tell, on the Form element instead of the actual View itself.
So today, schedule willing, I'll venture back into the thick of it and see if I can't get a hack going for this... as soon as I get a working solution, I'll post it here. After all, you've been reading about this for the past few days... it's the least I can do!
