Lotus Notes is the platform that provides the users with different applications that may prove assistive in managing their business. The applications include email, calendar, items, feeds and much more. Lotus Notes was designed to keep the database accessible over LAN and WAN settings. To assist in performance of Lotus Notes, the professionals took care in developing the perfect server – Lotus Domino, which was previously known as Lotus Notes Server. It simply manages the task of distribution and receiving of Lotus Notes emails located in the Lotus mailbox.
However, in most of the occasions users often pay no heed to its exceptional performance and other hidden specialties. Here are the few most relevant points that are quite essential for every user who works on Lotus Notes.
1. Much Beyond just an email platform: Lotus Notes is just seen as the effective emailing platform to the users. However, Lotus Notes has much to explore. With it, a user can exceptionally develop Electronic Workflow Applications that are supported with customized forms saved in the document list. The other feature is creation of information request form for any corporate office. Once this form is created, it can be linked to the website. Once this form is filled by any user and submitted, the Lotus notes directs it to the concerned department.
2. Inbuilt Replication Feature: The auto-replication ability of Lotus Notes allows users to be productive whenever they need. If network connections are not available, then the planned changes can be made in offline mode of the file. These changes are automatically replicated in the Lotus Notes Server when network connection is resumed.
3. Stunning Compatibility with Older Versions: Unlike Microsoft, IBM Lotus Notes perfectly supports all files designed in Notes platform. Be it from the first version of Notes running it on current advanced platform or running recently created Notes file in the older version, the platform is perfectly enriched in compatibility factor.
4. Saves your Pocket: Lotus Domino is a powerful, sophisticated tool in which designers can design the forms, views and agents. Once done, the same can be tested in Notes client or the browser for effectiveness and consistency of the newly created Notes items. The latest version of Lotus Notes provides Eclipse-based platform that makes more sophisticated but improved quality applications.
