After some false stops and starts, Brainworker and I can finally publish my full user guide for Notes Mail, Calendar, Contacts and To do. Perfect for new employees used to Outlook, but also as a user guide for any Notes user.
While Notes is so much more than just an email, calendar, and contacts application, these features are nevertheless some of the most important features of the client.
Outlook is the email and scheduling client with the largest user base. This means that if you get new employees in your company, they were most likely Outlook users in their previous position. If you are using Notes for email and calendaring, there will be a period of adjustment for the employee.
In the past 17 years I have held several user training sessions for users moving from the world of Outlook to the world of Notes. This manual is therefore built on my long experience with the usual questions and challenges.
This document will hopefully help you make the transition smoother and make it easier for the employee to adapt to working with Notes. To this end I have included tips on how you can set up the client to mimic Outlook behaviour (like opening everything in new windows).
In addition, I have described how you use a lot of the functions that Outlook, and Notes have in common, but that might be a bit different in Notes.
I also think this document will be of great help to users who have used Notes for years.
This manual is just one example of everything that the consultant pool Brainworker can you help you with when it comes to digital collaboration.
