Notes Tips #6: Notes knows what you did last week

HCL Notes History

Did you know that Notes remembers every single application and document you’ve accessed in the last seven days? I give you: Notes history!

How many times have you been searching for that email or that document in Notes that you are sure you read just a few days ago.

Notes can help you with that! Because Notes remembers everything! Yes, even what document you read in the CRM application on Tuesday, this week.

You access your History by clicking on the Open-button, or on the binoculars if you have docked the Open list, and then choose History:

(PS! If you don’t see History, you can fix it in 5 seconds. Just do a Replace Design on your bookmark.nsf file. Contact an administrator if you don’t know what I’m talking about. They will know)

History in Notes


You can now select the day you want to check your history for:

Notes History Day or Date


After choosing the day you can choose the application (your email is the application with your name):

Notes History Day and Application


And finally you can see all the documents you’ve opened in that application:

Notes History - Day - Application - Documents


To open the document, simply click on it!

See? Told you Notes remembers everything (at least from the last seven days).

  1. Hi

    Actually none of the Notes Clients I work with have the History folder.
    Is there a Policy for this ? (can’t find one)

    Restoring defaults does not help either
