With over 400,000 employees, IBM can be considered a very large company and too often I have accidentally closed a chat window or had to reboot and could not remember who I chatted with! Well, there is a tiny little down arrow in the title area for the Sametime Frequent Contacts window in your Notes client. You can select what contacts to show in the list. Notice you have several options:
Sametime Frequent Contacts – shows a list of contacts you often chat with.
Sametime Primary Contacts – is a static list you define of your “favorite” people.
Sametime Recent Contacts – shows in order of date the people you have chatted with. A little different from frequent contacts as it’s just sorted by date.
So maybe this would be a good “badge” if you used this feature in Sametime. I would be interested to know who actually knew about this and who uses it.
I got a call the other day asking how can one do a common set of responses in Sametime. I figured since this probably is a common question for people who are new to Sametime that I would share the answer in a quick little video.
This is great news! As Lotus Notes, Sametime, Domino Designer, and Lotus Expeditor are all based on Eclipse, not too mention all of the Rational tools and many more products, it is great to see Eclipse being recognized like this. They don’t really mention the fact that many of the IBM installed client portfolio is based on Eclipse, and they seem to focus on tooling.
The Lotus Expeditor Wiki is asking for input on anything and everything Expeditor. The platform under Lotus Notes, Sametime, and Symphony is a very powerful platform based on Eclipse. If you want to see more education material or postings on API’s, plugins, patterns, or anything related to the Eclipse side of the Lotus products, post your needs here.
