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 DataWith point-and-click integration, users can surface Domino data in their apps without writing any code. 
  • Extend Your Application’s ReachIncrease engagement beyond your logged-in users with anonymous access to apps 
  • Empower Citizen Developers with Enterprise DataEasily 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 organizationJoin us on July 30th for the global launch webinar as we walk you through all the new features in this release. We will be including several demos. 

Full Feature Set: What’s New in v1.0.1 

  • Anonymous Access: Extend the value of Domino Volt to those outside of your organization by building apps which can be used without having to authenticate against your directory.
  • Direct Access to Domino Data: Domino Volt designers now have a simplified way to integrate data from Domino views and documents into their apps.  
  • Out-of-the Box Directory Services: Easily look up information about people in your directory, such as determining an employee’s manager, email address, location, or any other data contained in the directory.
  • Dynamic Role Assignments: Dynamically assign users to roles. For example, you can assign an employee’s manager to have an “approver” role for submitted requests. This feature works with the new out-of-the-box directory services.
  • Application Upgrade: Update an app already in production with edits and modifications. This updates the app in place, so the URL used to access the app and data collected so far stays intact.
  • Docker Container: This container delivery helps to streamline the setup and management of your Domino Volt deployment. A preconfigured sample environment is included as an option for easy setup, for learning and evaluation purposes. 
  • Improved File User Interface in Text Widget: Easily add and manage files and images used in your Text items.
  • New JavaScript Editor: The new editor highlights JavaScript syntax and provides prebuilt code snippets and an object selector for fast code completion — increasing designers’ productivity. 
  • New JavaScript Functions: Build custom navigation and use buttons or other items from the palette for form submission. New functions include – form.getStageAction(),  app.getProductBaseURL(),   app.getFormLaunchURL() and app.getRecordURL().
  • PDF Document Integration: Add fillable PDF templates to your app for PDF document creation. Capture data and push it into the template. Store the resulting PDF locally or with the submission record.
  • Service Catalog: Define and catalog service definitions which can be used by Domino Volt app designers. This “define once and use by all” approach allows organizations to build and reuse integrations points specific to their organization and let Domino Volt designers build them into their apps without any technical knowledge of the API. 

Want to try these new features? We’ve updated the Domino Volt sandbox with the latest version so register for a free sandbox account to play around. For those who already have a sandbox account, new sample apps will be uploaded here this week for you to try out anonymous access, directory services, and access to Domino data.

HCL Domino Volt: April Release with New Integration Possibilities
It’s been exactly a year since the official launch of HCL Domino Volt, and it’s been a fun ride! In the last year, we’ve gained more than 400 new customers and have seen consistently high attendance on all our webinars and workshops. In fact, the launch webinar in April 2020 took the top spot with the largest number of registrations across the Digital Solutions portfolio in the entire year! We’re thankful for our customers, partners, and everyone who has contributed to the success of this product. The fun continues this year with our current April release. Domino Volt is on a quarterly release cycle and this marks our fourth release so far. Starting today, customers can access v1.0.3 on the HCL License Portal and we’ve provided updated documentation here.  Before I dive into the details of this release, I’d like to share two important events: New release webinar: Tomorrow, I’ll be hosting a webinar about this release at 10 AM ET. You can read more about the release below but wouldn’t it be cooler to see it in action? Join my webinar and come with questions! I’m anticipating a lively Q&A session. Global launch of Domino v12: Domino Volt will be available for Domino customers on v11 and v12. Join us for this exclusive event to learn about this major release. There will be a dedicated session on Domino Volt during the live event on June 7. Following the live event, we will be unrolling 12 days of exciting Domino content. I won’t reveal much here but there will be an exciting announcement you don’t want to miss!    What’s New with Domino Volt  New integration with HCL Link: I’m excited to announce that HCL Link is now included as part of Domino Volt. This addition will greatly expand and simplify your integration options.  Administrators can set up connections to relational database, SaaS services like Salesforce and ServiceNow, REST services, Excel spreadsheets and more. Domino Volt designers can then use these connections and easily integrate them into their apps. More ways to use your Domino investment: Create, update, and delete...

The Countdown to the Newest HCL Domino and Sametime Begins! Join Us for Our Global Launch.
[et_pb_section admin_label="section"] [et_pb_row admin_label="row"] [et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text admin_label="Text"]I am thrilled to announce that registration is now live for what will surely be a true, blockbuster event on June 7. This exclusive virtual event celebrates our latest versions of HCL Domino v12 and HCL Sametime. The first 1200 registrants got a free gift (we blew past that number in a couple of days!). I personally love the amazing video that helps capture the excitement as we could down the days to these “breakaway” releases. (An agenda will be released soon. Follow us on Twitter to get the latest.)  The launch event will include thought-leading sessions, demos, customer speakers, and more. And, it kicks off an exciting collection of Domino content delivered in a series we are calling the “Domino Dozen” (once you’ve registered for the launch, you will have access to this program). Each day, for 12 days following the launch, we will drop a new, essential Domino-related treasure. These pieces will include webinars, panel discussions, and technical deep dives, early access to special programs, thought leadership pieces, and more.   Also, join us for the closing keynote and happy hour on June 23 — we are calling it “Nerdi Gras” as a hat tip to the days of Lotus past. We will be releasing a party kit soon, with downloadable favors, so you can join in the fun. For those of us who’ve been on this Domino journey with us for so many years — and for those of you who we will be welcoming as new customers — we can’t wait to celebrate. Join us.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column] [/et_pb_row] [/et_pb_section]

HCL Domino v12 Beta 3 Has Arrived
What a blast! In our webinar hosted this week, we announced Beta 3 is now available for download on Flexnet for all Domino customers. Watch the replay here.  This will be the last beta drop before the v12 release so don’t miss your chance to participate and help us shape the future of Domino! In this third iteration, we are unleashing another set of great features. See the full list here or read highlights below. We’ve also included a Q&A received during our webinar and a special shoutout to all our customers and partners who covered our beta in blogs and tweets below! Notes Client Highlights New 64bit Notes Basic Client For the first time ever, we are releasing a 64-bit Notes Basic client for beta testing. Many of our customers have been voting for this and we’re pleased to deliver. (See this idea from Cormac.) Our main intent for this release is to engage customers, business partners, and third-party vendors to try out 64-bit Windows Basic version and test existing extension integrations. Our plan is to provide several iterations of this 64-bit client in beta and once we feel that we have addressed most of the known and reported issues, we will release the Standard 64-bit client. More Improvements for the Workspace In Beta 2, we introduced a new Notes client user interface for the workspace. Thanks to all your feedback, we have addressed several improvement requests such as reducing excessive spacing between icons and adding the ability to change the font color of workspace database icon (which is also policy controlled). Now you can also partially or completely collapse the workspace navigator and easily identify multiple replicas with the added a visual indicator. Read more here:  Updates to the new Notes V12 workspace design  Collapsible workspace sidebar  Apple M1 Support Good news for customers planning to use Apple’s new M1 hardware with HCL Notes. Beta 3 now also supports those type of CPUs. Domino Server Password Synchronization A new secure method to synchronize password changes from Active Directory to Domino allows customers to reduce the number of passwords that users have to remember. Password changes from Active...
