Use Lotus Notes R6 to accomplish real-world, professional tasks. Incorporating five hands-on projects, Lotus Notes R6 Professional Projects is your key to unlocking the power of this latest version of Lotus Notes. Each project focuses on a specific concept and is based on a real-world situation. You will be able to use the skills that you develop throughout the book to modify the projects to fit your professional needs.
Create a Reference Application: Using Domino Designer R6, create an Employee Handbook application that users will access with Lotus Notes client. As you create this online version of a policies and procedures manual, you will enhance your ability to create forms, views, and navigational elements as well as to apply security features in a Notes application.
Create a Collaborative Application: Create a collaborative Notes Discussion database that allows users to share their views in a common forum by beginning discussions for posting responses. Using LotusScript, you will learn how to create an agent for generating newsletters in Notes applications.
Create a Workflow and Tracking Application: Using an existing Domino database, create a Customer Complaint Tracking application that sends notifications and reminders, contains secured user sections, and tracks the status of a complaint. As you create your application, you will learn the components of workflow, how to route a document and create notification, and how to implement roles.
Create a Notes Application to Access Non-Notes Databases: Using Domino Designer R6, create a Leave Processing application that tracks employees who have scheduled for leave. You will use LotusScript Data Objects to enable your application to access enterprise data stored in a back-end Oracle database.
