He and members of his team are working hard every day to ensure that BES Domino product integrates exceptionally well with all versions of Notes and Domino, that the product is feature rich, secure, scalable and reliable and that the BlackBerry Solution remains the top mobile solution for Lotus Notes and Domino platform.

Notes Tips and Tricks Blog back up and running

As reported from the Domino Wiki

Many of you remember former IBM’er Alan Lepofsky’s popular blog, “Notes Tips and Tricks.”  It’s a tough act to follow, but Notes product manager Dwight Morse and information developer Julie Brown have teamed up to bring you a new Notes 8.x Tips blog.

You’ll find tips (like “Cool Features for Scheduling a Meeting” or “Recent Contacts”) that use lots of graphics to speed your learning! There’s even a tip on “Feeds,” which lets you subscribe to the Tips blog as a preset! Just click the “Subscribe to preset feeds” icon Subscribe to preset feeds icon in the Feeds section of your Notes Sidebar in Notes 8 or higher.

If you have requests for tips or if there’s a particular area of Notes that you would like more tips on, feel free to comment on the blog or on this wiki article.

This is a great resource!  Take advantage of it!

The VIEW Magazine and a free article on Green and DAOS

When was the last time you reviewed The View?  They are the same ones that conduct the Admin and Lotus Developer conferences.  The view has been around for EVER and consistantly produced high quality, deep dive, technical articles on topics that provided value in managing and developing in my Lotus environment. 

They use to send them to me for distribution at all of the User Group meetings for free.  Now that we have gone mostly virtual..  I wanted to give them a good plug here and share with you that their most recent free article is a great one on Maximize the Green Benefits of Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) for Notes and Domino 8.5
