What's new in lotus notes 8[1].5, 8.5.1, and 8.5

  1. 1. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? The following table lists features new to the IBM® Lotus Notes® 8.5.x codestream, and tells you how to get started using those features. In general, except for the new 8.5.2 features described in this topic, the rest of the Lotus Notes content documents Notes release 8.5.1. To find and contribute information and videos about using Lotus Notes, see the Lotus Notes and Domino wiki at http://www.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf. Table 1. New Features in the Lotus Notes 8.5 codestream Feature How do I use it? General Context menus streamlined for mail, contacts, and to do views Right-click documents in any of these views, and you see a more concise menu with options relevant to the context. Additionally, you can right-click documents to mark them read or unread. Open Lotus Connections features directly from the Notes Open list If you have installed the Activities sidebar and configured it to connect to a Lotus® Connections server, you can access the Lotus Connections features from the Notes® Open list. Click Open > Lotus Connections, and then select the feature that you want to use. Preferences You can navigate Notes preference fields using the Tab key. Automatically compress images pasted into documents. Bitmap (.bmp) images that are imported into a Notes document are compressed; bitmap images that are pasted into a Notes document are converted to a .gif or .jpg format. Click File > Preferences, click Basic Notes Client Configuration, and then click the appropriate setting under Additional options. (The setting is selected by default.) Back by popular demand, you can use red text to indicate unread documents. Click File > Preferences, and then click the Fonts and Colors preference. For the field Unread mail indication, select Plain red text. Also note that this preference provides you with an easy way to enlarge the text in the data areas of Notes, such as the Inbox and messages. Mail signatures imported from preferences will now be ignored by all Spell Check operations. New Spell Check preference options let you automatically correct three common typing errors: Typical spelling errors, such as "teh" instead of "the;" starting a sentence with a lowercase letter; typing two capital letters, such as JOhn. You can now choose not to see pop-up help (the help blurbs that appear if you hover over certain icons in an application) for Mail, Calendar, To-Do, and Contacts. To de-select this preference, click File > Preferences, click Basic Client Configuration, and then de-select "Enable Icon Popup Help in View". Convenient toolbar icons for often used editing options You can use toolbar icons to perform the following editing tasks: A text color icon you can click to set the color of new text or change the color of selected text. A highlighter icon you can click to enable or disable highlighting. The cursor changes to show that you are using the highlighter. An insert link icon you can click to create hotspot links for selected text An underline icon you can click to underline selected text Convenient table editing options Drag column or row margins to resize Drag the margins of the entire table to resize it Drag the contents from one cell to another Set the table width when creating a fixed width table Easily insert a new row or column by holding down the Shift key and double-clicking the common border Multiple undo actions Editor improvements Multiple undo actions in a list Cursor changes to show when permanent pen or highlighter is in use List elements do not display if there is no text on the line (Note that in edit mode, if the cursor is located on a line then the list element displays, but if no text is entered, the list element is hidden when the document is saved.) Improved selection behavior when selecting text in a Notes section. IBM Lotus Notes 8.5.2 What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 1 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  2. 2. Feature How do I use it? Better HTML rendering for tables in the Notes editor In earlier releases of Notes, the HTML parser properly handled 'class' and 'id' attributes, but was not passing them on to the editor. Because of that, the editor would create a table, but wouldn't know it was of a certain class, such as 'BorderedTable', so the table would not get the appropriate style applied. In 8.5.2, those class and ID attributes from the HTML parser are carried along to the editor and applied appropriately. Drag and drop Between rich text fields in Notes documents (Windows® only) Drag Sametime® names or groups to Notes name fields and rich text fields Drag names from external applications to Notes name fields Drag Search results from desktop search or IBM Lotus Connections search to Notes documents Drag email to the main or sidebar calendar to create a calendar entry Drag calendar entries to a new date in the main or sidebar calendar to reschedule or counter Drag documents or shortcuts from your operating system Desktop or file folder to the Open list or a Bookmark folder. For example, drag a Symphony™ document to a Bookmark folder, or drag a Notepad shortcut to the Open list. Documents You can view and import Microsoft® Office 2007, Office 98-2003, and Symphony attachments, and you can perform a full text search on them. Revised Notes start-up sequence The Notes start-up sequence has been reordered as part of performance enhancement. You are now prompted to log in using your Notes password before Notes appears on-screen. No interruptions during server failover If the server goes down during any of the following activities, it will fail over to another server automatically without interrupting your activity or showing you error messages: Creating a new entry for PIM views (Mail message, Calendar entry, or To Do) Opening a document in an application Opening a different folder or view Replying or forwarding with attachment Creating a new mail message while multiple documents are selected Deleting a single or multiple document Sending a message Switching back to Primary server when it becomes available Note: When a user opens their mail file from a server other than the primary server, either by using CTRL+O or by clicking on the workspace icon, the mail file is opened from the specified server. In other cases, like opening from bookmarks (where the server details are not displayed), the mail file will be opened from the primary server regardless of any server shown on the top of the workspace icon stack. View business cards in more places You can view a person's business card when you hover over their name in your Inbox; email To, Cc, Bcc, or type-ahead list; calendar entries and invites; Sametime Contacts list; chat windows; Activities; and more. Action Bar in preview pane Perform meeting actions, such as Accept and Decline, from the preview pane in Mail, Calendar, and To Do. ODF, ODP, and ODS files do not automatically open in embedded IBM Lotus Symphony ODF, ODP, and ODS file types will not automatically open in embedded Lotus Symphony. The first time you click on a file (either as an attachment or in the file system), you will be prompted to associate the file with IBM Lotus Symphony; Lotus Symphony Documents, Presentations, or Spreadsheets; or OpenOffice.org (if it is installed). Note: IBM Lotus Symphony is based on OpenOffice.org. Information about OpenOffice.org can be found at www.openoffice.org. Better spam protection with Lotus Protector With Lotus Protector, you can view and manage a list of company-blocked senders, add your own personally-blocked senders, or choose to allow certain blocked senders' mail. To view and manage your spam settings from Notes, expand the Spam Protection section in the navigation pane of you mail. Note: Your organization may choose not to use Lotus Protector, in which case you will not see these features. Notes Roaming user Your Domino® administrator can set you up to log into any available Notes client and use your personal contacts, bookmarks, feeds, notebook, widgets, dictionary, workspace, and various preferences. When configured for file server roaming server, a new Roaming preference panel is available. Notes 8.5 introduced support for Notes roaming user functionality for the Notes standard configuration and overall improvements to roaming capabilities in general. Eclipse preferences, as well as Notes basic preferences participate in roaming. Notes roaming user now supports improved plug-in deployment of roamed widgets. Notes roaming user adds file server support for Notes roaming users working on supported Linux® and Mac OS platforms. Roaming user is now available for file server roaming or Domino server roaming for all supported Notes platforms. Notes roaming user now supports Notes workspace roaming. Enhancements have been made that enable an administrator or a Notes power user to disable and re-enable roaming user status using a combination of NOTES.INI settings. This enables user's working across low bandwidth or slow Internet connections to temporarily disable their roaming status. For details see Lotus Tech Note 1417701 "Disabling and re-enabling Notes roaming user status on the fly" at the Lotus Support Site. Mail Type-ahead includes all email addresses stored in a person's contact entry To select an alternate email address, when you begin typing a name, select Other email Addresses from the menu that appears. The more frequently used addresses display at the top of the list. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 2 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  3. 3. Feature How do I use it? Folder column in mail All Documents view A new Folder column in the mail All Documents view displays any mail folders that a document is in. Roaming rich text mail signatures If you specify a mail signature in your mail preferences, it is stored in your mail file so that it is available on any computer where you use Notes. Empty trash from right-click menu From any mail view, right-click on the Trash folder and select Empty Trash. Archiving Improvements Visual differences between an archive and mail make it easy to tell when you are working in an archive. Easily find your recently archived messages by opening the Recently Archived folder in an archive. The subject line of archived messages say (Archived) and the header includes the date on which the message was archived. If you archive a message and leave a summary, you can open the message from its original folder. Open the summary from the original folder, and then click Open in Archive in the action bar above the message. Attachments in Internet mail When you receive mail that includes attachments from an Internet address, the attachments are included at the top of the message in a collapsible section. This includes Notes mail sent through an SMTP server. Sort Inbox by message type Click the type icon to sort messages by type, such as to do, calendar entry, or email Show email details by default You can set a preference to show details (such as Cc and full email addresses) in the heading of email messages you receive. To set this preference, click File > Preferences, click Mail, and then select the check box next to Always show details in received messages. To hide these details, you can click the Hide Details link. Folders stay open/closed when you re-open Notes If a folder was open when you closed Notes, it will be open the next time you open Notes. If it was closed when you closed Notes, it will be closed. Preview pane can be set to collapsed, by default You can set the following Notes.ini to have the preview pane collapsed by default in your Inbox and calendar: ShowPreviewCollapsedInitially=1 Note: This only affects the default behavior. So, if you set this as 1, the preview pane will be collapsed the first time you open Notes. But then if you open the preview pane and leave it open, it will be open on future restarts. "Always get a return receipt" preference You can set a preference to always get a message when recipients open mail you've sent to them. To set this preference, select File > Preferences, select Mail, and then select the check box next to Send me a Return Receipt when recipients read mail I send.. Close email after forwarding or replying to it You can set a preference to close an email after you forward or reply to it. To set this preference, click File > Preferences, click Mail, and then select Automatically close original email when replying/forwarding on the Basics tab.

  4. 4. Feature How do I use it? Managed Mail Replica: Use Mail free of network delays and server outages If you've ever wished using Mail were free of delays, but don't have the mind space for creating and maintaining a local replica, the new managed replica feature might be for you. When you create or convert an existing local replica to a managed replica in Notes, or your Domino administrator sets it for you via a policy, Notes creates a local mail replica and marks it as a managed replica. The next time you open Mail, you'll be using the managed replica, which will remain synched with the server copy without your doing anything. A managed replica differs from a local replica in the following ways: It is created in the background while the user continues to use the server copy. The managed replica can be limited to the last N days of mail/calendar entries if local space is a consideration. Initial creation of a managed replica is controlled to minimize impact to server of multiple users/clients creating managed replicas. After creation, the user is automatically switched to the managed replica. If the managed replica needs to be fixed up, the fixup will occur in the background and the user will be redirected to their server copy. If the managed replica becomes corrupt, it will be deleted and recreated. To speed up initial creation of the managed replica, documents beyond 30 days are initially truncated bringing down part of the document and omitting attachments. New mail polling and notification is performed against the server copy. In conjunction with a managed replica, there are additional settings that complete the managed replica experience: If the user opens a truncated document, the rest of the document and/or attachments can be retrieved in the background. All mail sends will route immediately through the local mail.box to avoid any delays sending mail messages and attachments. To set your Mail to be a managed replica (if your Domino administrator has not set the policy for you), do the following: Make sure that you have enough disk space (the size of your mail application plus its full-text index, plus 1GB).1. If you want the cache to have a full-text index, either create one now in your server-based mail application (File > Application > Properties, Full Text ) or set the default settings for local replicas to create a full text index for faster searching either in the NOTES.INI file or using Domino policy. 2. Close Lotus Notes.3. Set the following variables in the NOTES.INI file or enable using Domino desktop policy settings available with release 8.5.2. CacheMail=7 – creates or converts a local mail replica to a managed replica ReplicateOnNewMail=1 – when the client learns of new mail, it triggers a replication DocAutoRetrieve=1 – if a document is truncated, the client automatically gets the rest of the document, minus attachments, when the document is opened – double click on the attachment icon(s) in the email to fetch the attachments OutgoingMailSendThreshold=1 – forces Notes to route mail through the local mail.box (improves performance) 4. Ensure that you have the desired replication schedule. A replication schedule is enabled automatically if not otherwise set. By default, a managed replica is flagged as high priority. The high priority replication schedule is hourly. If you're an administrator you can set a replication schedule using Domino policy. Otherwise you can click File > Preferences > Replication and Synch to specify a replication schedule. 5. Ensure that the location documents specify to use a server-based mail file, and that the path in the location is correct. Note: The client will automatically managed the use of the local/managed replica, as opposed to the server replica, based on the current state of the managed replica. 6. Open Lotus Notes.7. After a short interval, the client will create the managed replica and begin replicating its contents. Note: If there is a problem, it will be reported in the log files.8. You can work in Lotus Notes mail while Notes is building the managed replica. Once the managed replica has been built (replication completes and the views are built), it will be switched to at the next opportune time. You do not need to close Notes to switch to the managed replica. If Notes has a problem with the managed replica, you are directed to the server copy, and the managed replica is rebuilt. Initially, the cache contains full copies of the last 30 days of mail. Large document that are older than 30 days and documents with attachments may be truncated. When you open a truncated document, the full document (no attachments) is retrieved in background. To revert to using server-based Lotus Notes mail, do one of the following: Specify the NOTES.INI setting CacheMail=1 to specify an unmanaged replica. Change the Domino policy to specify creation of a local replica. An administrator can control how many managed replicas are created concurrently. By default, the client will allow at most 25 concurrent managed replica creations against any given server. For finer control, an administrator can make the following changes: Enable the "Smart Upgrade Governor" on the Server configuration document.1. Set the number of simultaneous Smart Upgrade downloads to a desired value. Note: Initial managed replica creation will not exceed 90% of this value. 2. Note: The Smart Upgrade Governor is used to support existing servers. Enabling the governor does not require the use of Smart Upgrade, it just facilitates a mechanism for multiple clients to coordinate impact and load against a given server. Groups are easier to find when addressing email When addressing an email, groups will appear in the type-ahead list with a group icon next to them. Changes to "Ambiguous names" dialog When you address an email to someone, and Notes can't figure out which address you mean, you will be presented with a window where you can choose the correct address. You must select an address before the OK button will be available. Set default font for mail You can now set a default font for mail you send. There are two ways to set your default mail font. From the Text menu When composing an email, select text that is in the font you want to use as your default.1. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 4 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  5. 5. Feature How do I use it? Click Text > Set as Mail Font.2. The current font settings will become your default font.3. Using text properties When composing an email, set the font that you want to use, using the buttons in the toolbar.1. Right-click and select Text properties.2. Make any changes, and then click the Set Mail Font button in the lower right corner of the dialog box. Note: You can also set a default font for permanent pen, using the Set Permanent Pen button in this same box. 3. Your new default font will appear in the next email you compose. It will not affect the current email.4. Forward a message from the Trash folder You can forward a message from the Trash folder, without having to restore it first. Easier to tell which archive is open When you are working in an archive, the title will say “Archive” and then the name of the archive. This will make it easier to tell which archive you have open, if you have multiple archives. Sort Inbox by surname You can sort your Inbox by surname. To do this, follow these steps: Click File > Preferences, and then click Mail.1. On the Basics tab, under Display names in mail in this format select Last, First.2. Optional: Designate surname prefixes, such as “Van” for "Van Morrison" under Enter last name prefixes. For additional help, click and hold the "?" icon.3. More signature options When you add a signature, you can choose to make it rich text, plain text, or an HTML or image file. To add a signature, follow these steps: Click File > Preferences, and then click Mail.1. Click the Signature tab.2. Select Automatically append a signature to the bottom of my outgoing mail messages.3. Select a type of signature. For more help with this, click and hold the "?" icon.4. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 5 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  6. 6. Feature How do I use it? Type or paste your signature, or browse for a file.5. Click OK.6. Save email messages as .eml files Now you can save emails as .eml files. With an email message open, click File > Save As and select the .eml file extension. "HTML Size" MIME setting fixed at 12 The "HTML Size" MIME setting is no longer configurable; it retains a fixed value of "12". This ensures that the same rich text to HTML size mapping is performed as mail text is converted from one format to another, and addresses an issue where rich text font size could increase or decrease after repeated replying or forwarding. To view this setting, click Open > Contacts > Advanced > International MIME settings. Select a document and choose the "Settings By Character Set" tab. The HTML Size value, shown below, is now ignored. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 6 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  7. 7. Feature How do I use it? To return to the previous behavior, use the Notes.INI variable: MIMEUsePointSizeCfg=1.. Keep message selected when switching to different folder or view You can go to a different folder in mail (or a different view in an application), but keep the current message selected. To do this, go to a folder/view and select a message. Hold down the Ctrl key, and click the folder/view you would like to open. The new folder/view will open, and the message that was selected will still be selected. Improved support for computed outline entries If you have added a new outline entry to your mail, the behavior will be better. Calendar Add activities, private or public Google calendars, an iCalendar feed, another Notes user's calendar, or a Notes application's calendar (such as a Notes TeamRoom's calendar) In the Views panel of the calendar navigator, click Add a Calendar, and so on. To display or hide the added calendar's entries, select or deselect the check box beside the calendar's name under My Calendars. Horizontal scroll bar for calendar views When all of the header information for calendar entries cannot be displayed completely on a day in a calendar view, the day displays a horizontal scroll bar. You can use a mouse or a keyboard's left and right arrow keys to scroll with the bar and display the rest of the header information for calendar entries. Compatibility mode for repeating meeting invitations A new meeting invitation option, Some invitees use other mail programs, limits the set of actions allowed on repeating meetings to accommodate invitees who might be using mail programs that cannot handle more complex repeating meeting actions. Note that this option may or may not appear or be changeable depending on how administrators set up the compatibility mode. Main calendar At midnight, the main Calendar and Day-At-A-Glance panel automatically refresh to the next day. What's New in Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/topic/com.ibm.no... 7 of 11 21-09-2012 6:34 PM
  8. 8. Feature How do I use it? and Day-At- A-Glance automatically refresh Save and re-use information for multiple online meetings When you add an online meeting to a meeting invitation, you can save and re-use the information for future meetings. Save multiple meetings and choose from LotusLive, Sametime, or Sametime Classic, depending on your organization. To add, edit, or delete online meetings, click Online Meeting on a meeting invitation you created. Calendar panes stay open/closed when you re-open Notes If a pane in the calendar navigation was closed when you closed Notes, it will be closed the next time you open Notes. If it was open when you closed Notes, it will be open. View Teamroom calendars on a mobile device If you have added a Teamroom calendar to your Notes calendar, you can now view it on an iPhone or other mobile device. When adding the Teamroom calendar to your Notes calendar, select the checkbox next to View this calendar when offline or on a mobile device. Add private iCalendar feeds to your Notes calendar Add private iCalendar feeds to your Notes calendar Now you can add private iCalendars to your Notes calendar, as well as public ones. To add a private iCalendar, follow these steps: In the Views panel of your calendar's navigator, click My Calendars.1. Click Add a Calendar.2. Under Add, select "iCalendar feed".3. Select Private, fill in the information, and then click OK.4. Offline calendars automatically update at midnight If you have added a calendar to your Notes calendar, and chose to view it offline or on a mobile device, then Notes will automatically update any changes at midnight, as long as the device is connected to the internet at that time. Better options when a repeating meeting falls on a weekend When you create a meeting that repeats daily, monthly by date, or yearly, you can specify what should happen if an instance of that meeting falls on a weekend (for example, you can move it, delete it, or leave the entry on the weekend). In previous versions of Notes, the weekend was always assumed to be Saturday and Sunday, however this causes problems for users whose weekend is something other than Saturday and Sunday; these options have been changed. The options are now: Don't Move Move to previous work day Move to next work day Move to nearest work day Delete A "work day" is any day of the week which is enabled in the "Days in work week" preference (under File > Preferences, Calendar & To Do section, Views tab) for the person who is creating the calendar entry. Note: To see this feature, you will need to upgrade the design of your mail template. View Rooms and Resources on your calendar You can view rooms and resources on your calendar, alongside other calendar entries. With this feature, you can also reserve a room or resource directly from your calendar, and see when rooms and resources are already reserved. To add rooms and resources to your calendar, follow these steps: Refresh the design of your Rooms and Resources application. Open the application, and click File > Application > Refresh design. Note: If you do not see this option in your menu, click View > Advanced menus and try again. 1.

  9. 9. Feature How do I use it? Select the Notes server that stores the master template(s), or select Local if the master templates are on your workstation, and then click OK. If you do not know this information, ask your organization. 2. After you have refreshed the design of your Rooms and Resources application, you can add it to your calendar. From your calendar, click Add a calendar in the left pane under Show Calendars.1. In the dialog box, select Notes application calendar.2. Click Lookup and then find your rooms and resources application.3. Choose a text and background color, and then click OK. The rooms and resources will appear in your calendar.4. To show or hide rooms and resources, select or de-select the check box for it under Show Calendars. To reserve a room, select a rooms and resources entry on the calendar, and then click New Reservation. To see reservations for a specific room or resource, select a rooms and resources entry on the calendar, and then click View by Room or Resource. Calendar times change to match OS timezone If you change the timezone of your operating system, the times in your Notes calendar will also change, so that meeting times will still be correct. View calendar entries by category If you add categories to calendar entries, you can view them by category in the new Entries by Category view. To view calendar entries by category, click the plus sign (+) by Lists if is not already expanded, and then click Entries by Category in the calendar navigation pane. To add categories to a calendar entry, follow these steps: Edit or create a calendar entry.1. Enter a category into the Category field. (If you do not see the Category field, click Display above the calendar entry, and then select Category.) For this feature to appear, you must replace the design of your mail file. Follow these steps: After you install Notes 8.5.2, open your mail file and selectFile > Application > Replace Design. (If you do not see this menu option, select View > Advanced menus).a. Open the local notes/data directory, and select mail85.ntf.b. De-select "Inherit future design changes." This will prevent the Domino server from reverting the design back to an older version of the mail template.c. Click Replace.d. 2. More about the Entries by Category view This new view displays a categorized list of calendar entries on your Calendar including Appointments, Meetings, Reminders, Anniversaries, All Day Events, Event Announcements and imported iCal entries. This allows the user to group their related entries into categories for quick access. The view does not include To Dos, Notices, or calendar entries federated from other Calendars or feeds. Any entries that are not Categorized will appear under the Not Categorized section.
