Welcome to IBM Lotus iNotes 8.5.1

  1. 1. Welcome to IBM Lotus iNotes 8.5.1 A new version of IBM® Lotus® iNotes™ is coming to your desktop. Take a look at what's in store! What's new Here are some great new features: Open a Notes link When you receive a message that includes a IBM Lotus Notes® link, you can open the link in a browser, or in Lotus Notes. Simply click the link you want to open. Add a footer to your calendar You can display information, such as week numbers or day numbers in the footer. To specify what displays in the footer, click Preferences – Calendar – Display. Make your selections under “When displaying week numbers in calendar views.” Notes ID central vault synchronization You can synchronize your current Notes ID with the copy that is stored in the Notes ID Vault. In addition, if your mail file does not contain your Notes ID, synchronizing with the Notes ID Vault adds a copy of your Notes ID to your mail file. To synchronize your Notes ID, click Preferences – Security, and then click Sync with Vault. Set Sametime Unyte preferences You can set default values for online meetings using the IBM Lotus Sametime Unyte meeting service. Then, when you create an invitation the default values display, and you can choose whether or not to include this information. To set this preference, click Preferences – Calendar – Lotus Sametime Unyte. Scan through mail quickly using scroll hints Scroll hints display information about messages as you scroll through mail list views, based on how you have the view sorted. To enable scroll hints, click Preferences – Basics, and then select Enable scroll hints. View unread count for all your folders In the navigation pane folders now display the number of unread messages. To refresh the unread count for your folders, hover the cursor over a folder, and then click the refresh icon.
