Meet the New Release of Domino Volt
Back in April, we launched Domino Volt, a new low-code capability powered by Domino that makes it easy to develop powerful workflow-based apps. If you need an introduction, check out our latest video:  As promised during the launch, Domino Volt is committed to a quarterly release cycle and the latest release is now here. Domino Volt customers can download v1.0.1 on Flexnet today!   We’ve been hard at work implementing feedback and requests gathered from our beta participants and customers and we’re excited to announce that we have more than 10 new features and enhancements. Keep giving us your input and ideas — we build our roadmaps with you.   This latest release continues to empower users across the organization to build apps without needing technical skills while providing more value to your Domino investment. Highlights include:  Unleashing Your Domino Data: With point-and-click integration, users can surface Domino data in their apps without writing any code.  Extend Your Application’s Reach: Increase engagement beyond your logged-in users with anonymous access to apps.   Empower Citizen Developers with Enterprise Data: Easily look up enterprise data, sales or directory information without needing technical knowledge.  Building apps is now faster with easier workflow creation and access to data and you get more value from your apps by extending app usage outside your organization! Join us on July 30th for the global launch webinar as we walk you through all the new features in this release.

Domino Volt – Getting on with Business, Lightning Fast!
In the era of COVID-19, organizations are having to adapt and pivot away from traditional solutions and are learning to solve issues quickly and do things differently. In a recent webinar, we showed you how HCL Domino Volt can help keep key, mission-critical parts of the business moving, support a remote workforce, and build new processes. And, we showed you how it’s easy for those closest to the business challenge to build these new processes with minimal IT intervention.  We built and demoed a crisis furlough application that helps HR and finance manage the company salary budget and a work-from-home employee survey. In addition, we provided five key lessons learned and the best practices we recommend for building your first Domino Volt workflow-based application.  You can watch the replay here.   As usual, those who attended were super active, and a lot of great questions were asked. You can find those questions — and the answers — below.  Now, more than ever, teams need technology that just works. Domino is the proven platform that’s trusted around the globe by thousands of companies to deliver rock-solid apps that run their business. Let us help you get started. Register for a free sandbox account and start creating Domino Volt applications on a web browser – no installation needed!  FURLOUGH APP AND SURVEY DEMO  Q: Can you share the demo app?   A: Yes, we will share the application .volt files in the sandbox.   Q: How long did it take to build these apps?  A: Three weeks for the furlough application (including time spent learning HCL Domino Volt along the way) and one week for the survey application after applying lessons learned from building the first application. Q: In the demo, a support ticket was opened from the survey if you answered yes to “having connectivity issues.” Could a support BOT session be initiated instead of opening a ticket?  A: Yes. The low-code capabilities in Domino Volt allows you design apps to fit your specific requirements.  Providing support capabilities in the form of a BOT and then only opening a ticket if needed sounds like a very effective...
