I am trying to create an approval cycle database in Domino 6.5.  ALthough I've done this in earlier versions of Domino, the Approval Cycle template seems to have disappeared from version 6.5.  Can anyone shed any light on this?

YOu can use the older approval cycle database with R6, of course.  Fully compatible.

I think I'll have to resort to that.  Have they just taken the entire template out?

Jane, if you don't have access to a previous version that still had the approval cycle template, let me know and I will e-Mail it to you, or provide you a place you can download it from.

I just researched this a bit more, Approval cycle appeared in R4, and did not appear in R5 or R6.  I do still have a copy of the R4 version.

Qwaletee,

sorry - got side-tracked on a few other projects.  I did end up creating the file in 4.6, then opening and demo-ing it in 6.  The presentation went great, so thanks for the help.  :)

Jane.

Glad to help.  Hope you didn't have to actually install a 4.6 client to get this going!

Oh - I did...  Had to install from a CD.  On a system with no CD drive, no floppy drive...and disabled USB ports.  So it involved copying my installer onto another machine, ripping out the hard drive and wiring it into the first machine.  All because I wanted to show a group of completely disinterested students an approval cycle.  Not that they cared...

It's all fun and games.  ;)

I would've just sent you the template!!

Was this for a company developer class?  Or a user class?

Ah well - I've always like the MacGyver approach to computing ;)

Professional classes would be a definite step up - at least they pretend they care.  Nope - at 25 I decided to get the degree I'd been wanting for years.  So now, rather than giving presentations to bored execs, I get to give presentations to my geeky 20-year-old fellow students (not to mention sit through their own painfully bad ones).  I keep having to remind myself this will eventually lead to a job that actually challenges me.

Still - I graduate in May, so just a little bit longer and I get to go back and play with the grown-ups.

So, does the "topic-leading Expert for the Lotus Notes area" work for anyone or do you just bask in the glow?  ;)

I sort of work for myself.  When I can find teh work, that is.

So, I take it that you are gettnig an MBA or a degree in teaching or speech, or some similar area where you have to give presentations as part of the class curiculum?  And you decided that the Approval Cycle template is a good enough subject to give such a presentation on?

25... hmm, if I was still just 25...  I would make the same silly mistakes all over again, no doubt.

Ah - conultancy...that Holy Grail of the IT world ;)

Not doing an MBA unfortunately. When I went to uni the first time round I picked all the wrong classes, and by the time I found the computer lab and realized that was what I needed to be doing I'd run out of time and money.  So this is only a bachelor's - still, plenty of time left to have a decent career (and yes, most of the fun of being young is making silly mistakes :)

The class is Internet Server Design.  There are 3 case studies, each one with a 15 minute presentation due at the end of two weeks.  We were working on one that implemented web services in a legal practice - the approval cycle was meant to allow assigning lawyers to cases.  So we showed a new case coming in over the Internet and being accepted and assigned by different level managers.  It all worked beautifully so the instructor looked pretty impressed.  The students looked pretty bored...but then they always do.  I think it's genetic.
