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.

Taglined "The Geekiest Social Network", My developerWorks just keeps getting better. As I mentioned, the IBM developerWorks crew have really taken the social network via Lotus Connections to the community, resulting in an influx of new IBM Online Community (not everyone sticks to Lotus - sad to report ;-) ) Bloggers making the scene and really contributing some great content.
Aside from content generation, there's also the added bonus of grabbing your own Subject Matter Expert Connections Profile - which can work 24-7 for your business networking and collaborative efforts... provided your honest in your tagging and bio information of course!
If you haven't signed up yet, check out the following demo video showing off My developerWorks. And for those of you not particularly interested in social networking -- y'know... those of you with resession-proof jobs that know everything you'll ever need to know right now and are too busy telling the neighborhood kids to get off your lawn -- consider this yet another public example of a solid Lotus Connections playground!
And for those of you already in the Lotus Online Community who have an established blog, I'm actually working with the crew at developerWorks on that. More details on that as they materialize - which will hopefully be soon!

Looks like the cat is now out of the bag! IBM and the IBM DWadvancedDesign team have been working on a new Lotus Connections offering, this time taking the collaborative abilities of IBM Lotus Connections to the community:
Welcome to a new way to connect and interact with your fellow developers. With My developerWorks, create your own personalized profile and custom home page (My Home) to get instant access to the people, feeds, tags, bookmarks, blogs, groups, forums, etc. that you care about.
This is not YACI, as IBM has both - as I'd mentioned - taken the social network to the community as well as shown how an active, existing, and feature-rich environment such as developerWorks can adopt Lotus Connections. So far, so good!
The bad news? Yancy might be busy updating PlanetLotus.org with all of the newly launched Lotus-themed blogs!
I'm attempting to work with the DWadvancedDesign team to create a facility for existing bloggers to cross-post their content to a DW-based blog - allowing the existing blogger more exposure to the global Lotus Online Community beyond the yellow bubble while said blogger not having to do anything more than claiming their RSS feed. More on that when I have something to share!
Until then, check out My developerWorks, create your profile, and feel free to add me as a colleague/connection!
And if you don't have one already, this is the perfect excuse to start a weblog!

While working on the Public Build Event Calendar project, I found myself adding two things to the application that I thought might prove useful to Lotus Notes client developers. The first I'll discuss today when we cover how you can use a simple Profile document to apply View row color-coding logic to your Lotus Notes applications.
For those if you who are -- like me -- more visually minded:
I'm using my Preferences example application as my springboard here, which will allow me to easily:
Define a runtime formula that will evaluate against the NotesDocuments in my color-coded NotesView in my "Preference" NotesDocument through a combination of
Textfields to store my templated Formula and my
@ReplaceSubString-evaluated runtime formula.
The runtime formula Formula is then written into a Profile NotesDocument (which I've named "colorprofile"), into a NotesItem on that Profile NotesDocument (which I've named "colorstatus").
In my target NotesViews, I create a hidden ViewColumn, specifying that this column is to "Use value as color", that it is "User definable", and that "Profile Document" that holds the runtime formula for the Color-coding matches the same name of my Profile NotesDocument ("colorprofile").
Additionally, on the Advanced tab in the Column Properties, I make sure that the Programatic Name of said Column matches that of the defined NotesItem on the "colorprofile" storing the runtime formula I wish to use for this particular NotesView (ie., "colorstatus").
I then specify a simple Formula for the Column that will allow me to (should I choose) specify a unqiue color scheme. In this case, I'm using
Now, at runtime, my runtime formula is evaluated and the color-coding applied to my NotesView!
For those of you who -- again, like me -- prefer a hands-on demo:
The aforementioned second topic - which I'll try to get out tomorrow - will have us creating a simple Calendar-type NotesView, and using the RegionDoubleClick Event to pre-set the Starting Date and Time of a new NotesDocument based on your location/region at the time of your double-click! This approach is discussed (and used) in the Event Calendar Public Build project (Episode 2, I believe) - so if you want to you can check that out now!
