Customise ALL the client error messages for Notes

Ok…. Admin people are going to love
this.


A few months ago, I presented
this tip
.  It showed how
to customise some of the more unhelpful errors on the Lotus Notes clients
and make them useful, by replacing the error text that pops up on the client,
with something you put in instead.  Very very nice…..


This involves using desktop policies
to customise the Lotus Notes client error messages.  I present this
as a tip in the Adminblast presentation that I give at many conferences.
 
Bill
and Julian
have helped me out in a big way.
 They have put together a database that calls all the error codes
for the client and outputs them into a database, so you can now customise
ANY error message… and make it useful.    This is release 1,
and we have a few improvements in the planning.  So to use it…


Download the database file from my
resources page
.  Follow the
very simple instructions to output the error code list.


Read Jack Dausmans
excellent article
on how to easily
modify the notes.ini’s on clients using a custom button on your toolbar
(its very very good).


Pick your error – and customise it.

Consider this our Christmas gift to
the administrators, from Bill, Julian and myself.

    I suppose the Domino-team at IBM would be interested in stuff like this. Who wouldn’t want this in the next release Emoticon
