Adding the LinkPoint Connect Subform to Calendar and To Do Forms in IBM Notes Templates


LinkPoint360 offers the ability to install LinkPoint Connect buttons and menu options within IBM Notes to support end user adoption. IBM Notes users often find that the most efficient way to install LinkPoint Connect buttons and menus is by using a Template. LinkPoint360 can provide all of the preconfigured code needed in order to create and install the Template in IBM Notes. Templates must be installed by an IBM Notes Administrator on the client side. Note that Templates only display the LinkPoint Connect menu items if the LinkPoint Connect application is installed. Any users who do not have or use LinkPoint Connect will not see the LinkPoint Connect menus in their instance of IBM Notes.

LinkPoint Connect includes IBM Notes Action Scripts that can be added to an existing or new mail template. These Action Scripts allow users to access the LinkPoint Connect functionality within IBM Notes. The actions recommended in this document are suggested IBM Notes Template enhancements to support LinkPoint Connect functionality. The recommended enhancements may not be necessary based on your organizations requirements.

Tip_Web Tip: The LinkPointSetupV5.nsf is only used to help install the LinkPoint Agents when needed and to hold the LinkPoint Action Scripts. This database is not used or required by LinkPoint Connect in order to run.

Tip_Web Tip: The LinkPoint Action Menus are programmed with a Hide action formula that will prevent displaying of any LinkPoint Action menu if the following Registry Key does not exist. This Registry Key is automatically created when LinkPoint Connect is started. Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareLinkPoint360LicenseManagerLastVerified

Warning_Web Warning: Supported Lotus Notes versions include Versions 9.x, 8.x, 7.x, 6.x (Basic and Standard).
