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.
