I met with a client yesterday about development of a knowledge base database intranet application ...
They showed me Lotus Notes as something they had experimented with and wnated to see if it can be used
as the basis for this project ...
I have seen Lotus Notes, but not real familiar (I am with Approach, but assume it is much different)
They are faced with a limited budget (as most) and if Lotus Notes can be customized to the following they
would prefer to stay with it ...
1) They need to be able to search e-mail text body by keywords ... is there a script or add-ons that allows this
2) Can their paper based forms be "simulated" for data input ?
3) Can events and actions be "pushed" to others ? i.e., Once the form one is entered and submitted it creates
another set of tasks that are e-mailed to the next department AND a log of this be created so management can
track status of account and time for completion ?
4) Can labels names be changes on the left bar, etc ... how flexible can this be ?
Otherwise they are faced at creating an intranet application with VPN access from scratch and using Outlook ...
How easy is it to find resources for Lotus Notes ?
I did check out some of the links ... does it simply use Lotus Script ?
This question is very important
