Check availability before sending invitations

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, scheduling
Bill Schroeder673 - 18 2007 / (14)
When a user attempts to send a meeting invitation, Notes should first check the availability of all of those users invited & also check both the availability of the room & access to the room. If any of the invitees are not shown as available OR if th room is ...

Meetings of more than 24hours

:Notes Client / Calendar
: meeting, calendar, schedule
John Cawrey948 - 01 2008 / (11)
I want to be able to schedule a meeting lasting more than 24 hours, i.e. an over-nighter.
I dont want to have to make 2 separate entries, one from 13:30-midnight today, and then another 00:01 to 17:30 tomorrow.

Break the mail file up into the component portions:
This idea based on my blogpost here:

Better Date/Time Control Display in Read Mode

:Notes Client / Calendar
: dates, calendar, picker, fields
Julian Robichaux941 - 30 2007 / (10)
Currently if you use a Notes date/time control on a form in the client, the control field still has the small calendar button on the right when it's in Read mode (see attached screenshot).
This has never made sense to me, because you can't change the date in Read ...

Delegate Ownership of a meeting

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, meeting, delegation
Stephen Bailey1802 - 11 2008 / (9)
This may be available in Notes 8, I'm not sure, but.
In Notes 7 and before, invitees to a meeting can delegate a meeting to a colleague.
However, the chair of a meeting is unable to hand over "chair rights" to the meeting to someone else. I'm sure ...

Segment User Experience data and make it manageable & recoverable via policy

:Notes Client / Other
: contacts, to, do, calendar
Craig Wiseman24988 - 11 2008 / (8)
This idea is similar to 
It is the inverse of
and looks to accomplish the same thing: Take all the locally stored user config & data (notes.ini settings, contacts, journal, RSS feeds, To Dos, bookmarks, etc) store them in ...

Ability to auto-disable out of office agent upon return

:Notes Client / Calendar
: out-of-office, agent, calendar
Joyce Davis531 - 03 2008 / (7)
It would be great to have the option to automatically disable my out of office agent on the date I'm set to return.  Currently, we get an e-mail reminder to disable the agent, with instructions on how to do it.  As I completed those steps most recently, I thought how ...

Push Holidays to user mailfiles

:Notes Client / Calendar
: holidays, calendar, push
Jimmy Eriksson500 - 16 2008 / (6)

I know how to develop but it would be nice if this feature was built in Domino Server/Admin Client to push caledar entries to all mailfiles, for example company specific Holidays or events thats not a Meeting, All day event, reminder or appointment.


Date navigation from numeric calendar

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendaring, calendar
Rodrigo Duran198 - 07 2007 / (5)
I would love to click on a date in the small numeric calendar table on the top left of the Calendar Perspective and be redirected to that very date. Variations on the same theme are listed below.
  1. Click on Today ?  Go to "One Day" view of ...

6 ideas for Lotus Notes calendar functions

:Notes Client / Calendar
: lotus, notes, calendar, functions, propagate, souvenir, minutes, refresh, numbers, calling, lotuslive
Didier Boullery227 - 03 2010 / (5)
Here are ideas (coming from the Europe Innovation Hub discussion forum) about the Lotus Notes calendar functions: 1) When a user receives an invitation, he would need a "propagate" function whereby he submits back to the meeting owner a list of names to be invited in ...

Day-At-A-Glance Activity Item Strike-through

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: notes, client, calendar, notes_client, sidebar
Bill Malchisky12192 - 09 2008 / (5)
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...

Improved date and time entering

:Notes Client / Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
: calendar, data
Fred Husoy765 - 14 2008 / (5)
Date and time controls should be approved to accept data entering without punctuation, ie 1700 instead of 17:00 for time and 140408 instead of 14.04.2008 (norwegian format).

Today you get an ugly warning.

Show birthdays from my contacts in my calendar

:Notes Client / Calendar
: birthdays, calendar, contacts
Bastian Wieczorek8390 - 05 2007 / (4)
I have many private contacts in my local names.nsf. For every entry I have added details like birthday, street, ...
I would like to have now a button(Agent) which imports these birthdays into my calendar. Maybe it would be good idea to work with the contacts which are "Synchronized ...

Sync external iCal calendars in Notes

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, ical
Ted Hardenburgh477 - 09 2008 / (4)
In 7.0.2, we got the ability to "subscribe" to iCal calendars - great idea, but the implementation when compared to other calendars left a little to be desired - import only.  If the calendar is updated, oh well, you can remove the calendar, or change it's name, but not update ...

Out of Office enabled in Calendar forms

:Notes Client / Other
: ooo, calendar
Don Munie506 - 31 2008 / (4)
Add a subform to the various calendar forms that would allow you to enable the Out of Office agent.  Awareness could be similar to Sametime Connect where it automatically changes your status based on calendar events.  This would allow you to have the OOO agent automatically enable/disable itself based on ...

Calendar current time visual indicator

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, time, indicator, visual
GIORGIO PAGLIARINI214 - 24 2008 / (4)
Have a visual live time indicator on calendar views.
When calendar is quite busy a time indicator would help to focus on current/upcoming appointments/schedules. The indicator would show up in the current day at the current time.


Mail to all who accepted

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, meeting
Lotus Notes2588 - 07 2011 / (4)
There are Owners Actions on a meeting for sending mail to all invitees, to all who reacted, or to all who do not react. Some users would like to add "Send mail to all who accepted".

Overlaid calendar should impact the person's busy time

:Notes Client / Other
: calendar
Wim Stevens580 - 08 2010 / (3)
Since Notes 8.x users may overlay an external calendar to their calendar.  However when somebody tries to invite the user, he thinks the user is free even if there are meetings in the external calendar.
There should be an option on the external calendar specifying "update busytime when meeting ...

Use different color on private calendar entries

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar
Oystein Mollestad431 - 09 2008 / (3)
Miss this function in Lotus Notes. Private calendar entries should be easily separated from business related entries. Further enhancement is to be able to choose different color for each type of category.

Please make it possible to modify Calendar Entry type and repeat properties

:Notes Client / Calendar
: calendar, usability
Eric Wilson1688 - 07 2008 / (3)
It's a BIG nuisance that once a Celendar Entry is saved you can't change its type or it's repeat properties.  This leads to lots of recreation of Enties on a regular basis.
PLEASE fix this.  I hear from customers about this more often than I'd like and I encounter ...
