5 Reasons to Love the HCL Domino Notes Client

9. Februar 2022 Posted by Ren Mark Tapang

HCL keeps making improvements and investing in all our products, and HCL Domino has a strong and future-proof roadmap. The latest version (v12.0.1) has a lot of new features and improvements. You can listen to a webinar about everything it has to offer here (plus a Q&A summarizing the hundreds of questions asked at that event).

I have been using Notes Client for many years, and it has improved with each version, here is a summary of some of the latest features of Notes Client that you will surely love and will help you with everyday life.

1. You Can Access Your Email from Anywhere — Even Offline  

Due to the global pandemic, most of us are working from home. So, with Notes, even if you don’t have immediate internet access, you can draft emails and keep working. There are times that the internet connection is intermittent, or even lost due to unforeseen circumstances. Emails prepared offline will be sent as soon as the Internet connection is re-established. 

Also, customers have told us that when traveling on a plane or going somewhere, their favorite work-related activity is to clear up their email backlog. Most of them work in Notes Client during their journey. They can read and respond to email just like they would when they are at their desk connected to the Internet. As the Internet connection is re-established, the email is automatically sent.

2. You Can Schedule When Emails Are Delivered

There are times when you want to schedule or delay the sending of an email if you’re working late and want to send an important email to a customer/client, you may not necessarily want it to show up in their inbox at 12 midnight). You can schedule the sending of that message so that it will appear in their Inbox closer to their working hours.  

Here’s a link to how to schedule how you can schedule email.

3. You Can Recall an Email 

Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling as you realize you have accidentally sent an email to the wrong person? Or experienced sending email with incorrect data or missing attachment? If you are lucky, it could just be an embarrassing blip on your day, but there is the potential for some very real damage, like incorrectly sending confidential information. 

So yes, sending an email to the wrong person or group can be embarrassing. Here’s how.

4. You Can Categorize Email Items to Stay Organized

Hunting and pecking to find a lost email can be frustrating and time-consuming but Notes now has an easy way to search by sender. You can quickly find a name in this view by typing any string of characters in the name, not just the first characters. This feature requires the Notes® 10 mail template (mail10.ntf).

5. You Can Manage Email by Creating and Setting Mail Rules

Does your inbox get flooded with emails every day (like it does for all of us)? Ever wish they would magically move to another folder where you can view them later; so that you can focus and concentrate on what is more important. 

Great news, with Notes Client, you can set rules that will automatically manage your emails and organize them in specific folders. This is possible by setting mail rules through the Manage and Create rule feature.  

Here’s how to create and manage rules in Notes Client.

HCL Domino Notes Client 11 New Feature

8. Oktober 2020 Posted by Ren Mark Tapang

Last January 2020, we launched a new version of Domino Notes Client (V11) which contains cleaner and modernized UI, minimalist menus, simplified forms and user experience improvements for Mail.  

Under Modernized UI Notes Client V11 appearance has changed the new color scheme and design. Notes Client UI focused on Simplicity so that it will be more user friendly. 

Also, for user experience Improvements, we focused on Progressive disclosure to show the advanced features and actions as the user needs them. 

Finally, we focused on Notes Client performance to be faster and more stable to increase effectiveness of the user. 

In addition to the aforementioned enhancements, new features are also made available in response to the feedbacks and requests from our customers. 

What’s New in Notes v 11 

  • Export to PDF – You can now export emails and documents to PDF from the HCL Notes Client.

  • 24+ hour meeting support – Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes® Calendar.

  • Three Click Support – Three click support adds a level of security when a user opens an attachment within an email.

  • Network resiliency improvements – When there is no network connection (when the cable is unplugged or the wireless is unavailable), the Notes client responds with an error message. Previously, the client would freeze before timing out – now, the error message appears right away.

  • Synched release schedule – Starting with this release, Sametime and Notes follow the same release schedule.

  • TLS 1.2 support for SAML – Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes Federated login (SAML). This enhancement is a result of upgrading the XULRunner browser within Notes to the latest version (which supports TLS 1.2).

  • MAC 64-bit uninstaller – The uninstaller provided for Notes 11 on Mac is now 64-bit. This change is made because Apple will no longer support a 32-bit uninstaller as of its upcoming Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) release. The 64-bit uninstaller can be used to uninstall Notes 11 running on Mac OS 10.15, 10.14, and 10.13.

  • Moving folders prompt – Users are now prompted to confirm when a mail folder is moved: 

Domino Notes Client is committed to a quarterly release cycle and the latest release is now here. Domino Notes Client customers can download v11.0.1 on FlexNet today!
