Lotus Notes Out of Office Modification.
Posted on 2009-04-07
I am trying to modify the OOO agent (actually just the form) and while it is behaving as expected it isn't pretty as the OutOfOfficeProfile form doesn't like to be modified (or deleted it seems.)
I modified the form which resulted in very little change in the profile. OK its a profile doc, so it probably has some stored stuff that is causing problems. I write a little action to get rid of it. So the new one comes up ... nothing in it. So I change the part that says "I am gone from 4/7/09 to 4/8/09" to somethng like "I am no longer with ABC Corp effective 4/7/09" great ... but then I activate it and SOME but NOT ALL of the form goes back to "I am gone from 4/7/09 to 4/8/09". But I ripped all that out. Its all gone unless there is something in the actual agent that changes the form back. However when the email goes out in response to an incoming email its ok.
Here is the real kicker. Once it defaults to one day even though I ripped out all the return date stuff I don't want or need an return date because there isn't one. ARRRGGGGGhhhh
And for 50 bonus pts when did all Lotus' code end up in the declarations? Very non-modification freindly
