QuickTip Video: Copy and Pasting Documents as a rich text table

In this video I show one of my favorite features of Lotus Notes. I show how you can copy documents from a view as a rich text table and then paste that table into another message or document.

How do I do that in Lotus Notes?

I have been watching my video “watched” counts for a bit and I am very surprised the most widely watched videos on my YouTube and Videos page are the ones targeted for end users. I mostly write about very technical things like API’s, Java, Dojo, or using Eclipse, etc so this is kind of surprising to me. I also have many friends and family who use Lotus Notes on a daily basis at work and I am shocked to hear some of their questions. I might go ahead and create a series of quick tip videos specifically for Lotus Notes use. If you have any cool ideas you want to see in a quick tip video let me know.

Also, don’t forget, the Lotus VideoFest ends next week!

YouTube, VideoFest, the iPhone and a treadmill

I have to say I love VideoFest!  Since its launch I have actually started doing something that seems to be a no-brainer but I had not done before.  That is, watching YouTube videos on my iPhone while on the treadmill!  Yep, I love it.  I have now done it for almost two weeks and I have watched dozens of videos at this point and have learned a lot.

I have also found that I really like the “raw video” – ie. videos created by normal people describing tips, tricks, or something about a product.  Most seem like they are roughly scripted but for the most part you are hearing it from their heart and their experience.

So if you have an iPod and a treadmill why not stay fit and learn at the same time!

QuickTip Video: Getting the Notes URL for any database, view, or document!

In this quick tip video I show how you can use the Address bar in the Lotus Notes client to get the address of any document, view or database.

Lotus VideoFest – make sure you attend!

I know this is in question to promote Facebook events on my blog but hey, many of my readers are not my friend on Facebook so oh well!  It is also on the Lotus site, see below.

A virtual event hosted by the Lotus Information Development team aimed at encouraging customers, business partners, and IBMers to create informational videos and share them on the Lotus product wikis.

VideoFest starts October 26, 2010 and will culminate at Lotusphere (Jan 30 – Feb 3, 2011) when the videos are highlighted.

This is your chance to be spotlighted at Lotusphere, whether or not you attend!
