OK, please don't laugh, CRAK. My present employer's Company doesn't use Notes. I learned what little I know when working for a previous employer, which used Notes extensively.(Called ICI - look what happened to them since left 6 years ago! [See their share prices!]).
Anyway, my Company is small and doesn't have vast funds to spend on IT. We use a simple Windows server system, which has private and public drives. We use Outlook for E-mail. The server obviously doesn't have any Notes or Domino software on it.
I have a version of Notes 5 on my laptop computer that I downloaded from IBM's site-
I'd like to create some Notes applications that can be used internally without costing us much (preferably any) money, at least until they get to see the benefits. I'm thinking that I can install this download on several or all user PCs, and the databases on the public part of the server, then people could use them.
I presume that only one person could address it at any one time due to the absense of Domino? just like say a document in Word kept on a server. Assuming I'm right, what's the easiest and cheapest way we can get a system running like the proper applications in ICI etc? I'd appreciate any general comments or help you can offer.
