Do you remember the days when you had lots of questions about the future of Notes/Domino, but never got any replies with any commitment? Well, those days are over!
NCUG’s web site is backup again, and you can now read my report from Stockholm and the first, and very successful, Nordic Collaboration User Group Meeting.
The web hotel hosting our solution had serious problems yesterday, so this didn’t just happen to us. But because we are in the process of changing our domain from isbg.no to ncug.org, it hit us harder than the others, for some reason. But now you can read my full report from Stockholm, including photos and presentations!
Yesterday IBM Notes/Domino V10 was unveiled to the world in the first of a whole series of launch events around the world. We in the Norwegian user group, in cooperation with IBM, is doing the Norwegian launch in Oslo October 23rd. One of the biggest features (among a whole list of cool features like auto repair, Domino Query language etc) is that you now can use Node.js to develop solutions for the Domino platform. And ISW has now done something awesome that can give your Notes app increased life, even if your company has moved to Office 365.
As I mentioned yesterday, I sold three photos to the local hotel Molde Fjordstuer, meant for one of their newly built rooms. Namely, their jazz suite.
This is the second of the tree photos.
Leonard Cohen during Molde International Jazz Festival 2009. It’s one of the things I like about the jazz festival. You get to shoot old legends.
Aren’t there times when you are looking through your Notes calendar and you wish that public holidays could be marked, so that you don’t accidentally book meetings on days that no one is at work? At least here in Europe that’s a problem, what with all our public holidays. And if you work at a company that have branches all over the world, or as in the case of my company, employees are travelling all over the world to meet people, it’s often useful to see when other countries have their holidays.
This is how you import holidays into your Notes calendar:
- Open your personal calendar inside Notes
- Above your calendar, next to the New button, you have a More button. Click it and choose Import Holidays…
- This screen will pop up:
You can choose to import the holiday of any country in the list by checking the check box to the left of the name of the country. In this example I’ve chosen Norway:
- Now all the Norwegian holidays will be imported. To check this I go to December to see if the public Xmas holidays have been set
The Norwegian constitutional day is also in place:
Also holidays that occur on different dates each year is in place. Here’s Easter:
This is how easy it is to have full control over holidays, both in your own country, and other countries. This is of
course also replicated over to your cell phone if you wish.
