Notes Client / Contacts 


I'd like contacts to be merged into the mail file

: Notes Client / Contacts
: contacts, mail
Craig Wiseman24988 - 21 2007 / (0)
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to have contacts in a separate database that isn't replicated to the server automatically.  Sync'ing them just seems like a absolute kludge.
There are ways to address the security issues with allowing delegation of contacts. Given the vast creativity of the community ...

Hide contacts with empty mail address from type-ahead

: Notes Client / Contacts
: mail, address, contacts, list
Rainer Brandl2238 - 05 2007 / (1)
Exclude contacts with missing mail address from the personal address book from the "type ahead"-function ? To hide those contacts from the contact list is not the problem, but these contacts are still listed at the type-ahead and can´t be hidden. Any suggestions how to avoid this "feature" ...

Bastian Wieczorek8390 - 05 2007 / (1)

Select secondary emails

: Notes Client / Contacts
: mail, contacts, address
Sergio Ramos1004 - 06 2007 / (0)
In the contacts form, you can enter more than one e mail for persons. That's PERFECT.
When you want to send an email to any people in your contact list, Notes automatically select the Default address; sometimes people need to send an email to a seconary address.. for example

Dennis Sullivan268 - 05 2008 / (0)
When using the "Add Sender to Contacts" feature when reading an email have full contact information be displayed so you can enter a phone number/physical address/Notes/Comments and not just the users email address that they sent the message from.
Why should a user have to go back to their ...

Uwe Grunewald576 - 31 2008 / (0)
When writing a mail to a person who's contact data are contained in the personal address book and this person has more than one E-Mail address specified in his address record (e.g. business and private) I would love to be prompted for a selection to what Email adress the mail ...

Synchronize Contacts on Replicator Page via Desktop Policy

: Notes Client / Contacts
: synch, contacts, replicator, desktop, policy
Lissette Arenas520 - 08 2008 / (0)
Option to synchronize contacts should be available in either the scriptable setup (ie: rep.contacts=1 in text file) or better yet, via a desktop policy.
Currently, on version 8.0.2 of Lotus Notes, it is enabled on a client by client basis.  For some reason, some of the clients have it disabled ...

Alan Lepofsky8175 - 03 2007 / (0)
Today when you click Add Contact, it brings up a dialog box which contains a few fields filled in, you then click ok, and behind the scenes a new contact document is added to names.nsf.   I'd like to see this changed to: click Add Contact, a new contact record is ...

Ability to add contact from selected text

Stephanie Alcorn200 - 21 2009 / (0)
I would like to be able to highlight a name in the text of an email or a business address (such as in a text email signature) and add that information easily to a new or existing contact.  For example, highlight

Contacts not in separate database

: Notes Client / Contacts
: contacts, template
Richard Doone824 - 12 2007 / (0)
For some time now the Personal Address Book in Notes has been separate to the mail file.  To synchronise contacts with web clients or mobile clients until R8 users have had to manually synchronise the contacts and they are placed in a hidden view. In R8 there's the automatic synchronisation ...

Make birthday/anniversary in contacts easy to add to calendar (recurring)

: Notes Client / Contacts
: birthday, contacts, anniversary
Craig Wiseman24988 - 05 2007 / (0)
When adding a birthday/anniversay to a contact, there should be a button to add it to calendar as a recurring (75 years) reminder.
Although, now that I look, these fields are only initially available in the popup... OK AND the birthday and anniversary fields should NOT be hidden by default....

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

: Notes Client / Other
: contacts, to, do, calendar
Craig Wiseman24988 - 11 2008 / (0)
This idea is similar to 
It is the inverse of

One Way Synch from Domain Directory to Personal Contacts

: Notes Client / Contacts
: domino, directory, synch, contacts
John Gustafson317 - 26 2008 / (0)

Users copy company contacts from the domain directory into their personal contacts db for synch with hand-helds.  Need automated updates of phone, address and name changes (marriage, etc) from company directory into personal contacts.  Synch should be one way to protect company domain directory data.  Synch should preserve extra data ...


Context Menu should include Add Person to Contacts

: Notes Client / Mail
: mail, context menu, contacts
Jeremiah Benjamin804 - 12 2010 / (0)
In 8.5.1, if you right-click on the sender's name in the header there is an option to Add Sender to Contacts.
However, this option is not available inside the email itself.  I use previews (so it's not as big a deal for me), but many old-school users don't use ...

Contacts Delegation

: Notes Client / Contacts
: contacts, delegation
Dennis Ruddigkeit128 - 21 2008 / (0)

An option to delegate Mail, Calendar or ToDo without granting access to contacts would be great. Especially if users also maintain their private contacts in Lotus Notes they probably don´t want other users to access their contacts.


Change company name/phone/street/city etc. on multiple contacts.

: Notes Client / Contacts
: contacts, change, multiple
Lars Lyngnes166 - 17 2009 / (0)
When a company changes name, moves to another location or change telephonenumber, it would be nice to have a solution in the address book, to change this information on multiple contacts. (The same function as More|Categorize..., but with more fields to edit.)

Exclude Contacts and other Non-Mail items from Unread Mark count

: Notes Client / Mail
: notes client, mail, unread, unread marks, contacts
Stephen Bailey1802 - 13 2012 / (0)
You know the problem..
A user asks you "Why does my mailbox icon display that I have 4 unread emails, but there are no unread emails in my inbox or folders?"
The answer is often because:
  1. The user has "Sync Contacts" enabled.
  2. The user has ...

Contacts as a Default Sidebar Widget

Felix Binsack322 - 18 2009 / (0)
I know I can do that, but it is not easy and views and forms are not optimized for the sidebar.

Option to add some small comments when adding a contact from an email

: Notes Client / Contacts
: timesaving, contacts, comments
Patrick Kwinten21314 - 23 2010 / (0)
when I select 'Add Senter to Contacts..' in the upcoming dialog there is no option to add some additional comment for this contact. I still have to open my contacts applicatio, locate the person, open it and add WHY I have added this person to my contacts in the first place.

Enhanced Policies for Recent Contacts

Sam Sawatzky344 - 20 2011 / (0)
We now have the ability to set a policy to completely disable the Recent Contacts (see here). I would like to have more control. In the client preferences, a user can choose three options: 
     Any Names to Recent Contacts
     CC and BCC names to Recent Contacts
     Names from Emails ...

Add Sender to contacts: Dump "successfully added"

: Notes Client / Mail
: contacts, mail, memo
Andreas Imnitzer448 - 19 2009 / (0)
I often use the "more.add sender to contacts" action in the memo form. I do like the control window to update more information for the contact at that moment. But it's annoying to have to klick the "contact was successfully added" window away with OK. This window gives the impression ...

Add 'Move to My Contacts' button to the form

: Notes Client / Contacts
: recent_contacts, contacts
Alex Kassabov1327 - 20 2009 / (0)
The 'Move to My Contacts' button is only available at the Recent Contacts view.  It would be nice to have it in the Contact form, too.
I use Mac's Spotlight to search for contacts.  Sometimes it finds the name amongst the Recent Contacts.  It opens the form, but I have ...

Send funtion Should not Point to Recent Contacts

: Notes Client / Mail
: personal_address_book, mail, notes_client, recent_contacts, contacts
Deb Carpenter1070 - 30 2008 / (0)
Release 8 has a new feature on the type-ahead for email addresses. It records email addresses on all those received and sent in the new view, "Recent Contacts", located in the Personal Address book. It is nice to have the type-ahead feature which gives you a history dropdown, similar to ...

Mike Perrett70 - 28 2009 / (0)
Hi I'd like to see a feature in the Notes client that has become a staple in the OpenNTF Mail Experience Template.
Specifically, provide a mail rule to enable your synchronised contacts to be used as a whitelist. Thus, any mail from a sender who is not in your ...

iNotes needs the import/Export contact list

: Notes Client / iNotes
: inotes, contacts, import
Kenji S186 - 05 2010 / (0)
iNotes should have the import/export function Contact list same as gmail or yahoo mail!

Have an option 'hide in type-ahead' for groups (& regular contacts)

: Notes Client / Contacts
: groups, contacts, recent contacts
Mathieu Pape8090 - 17 2012 / (0)
This does already exist in 8.5.3 for recent contacts but not for groups (nor regular contacts). Very handy if you need to mail to certain (often large) groups like for announcements, but don't want to take the risk to mail this group by mistake for non-announcements.

Display Name usage in recipient fields

: Notes Client / Contacts
: address book, contacts, recipients, displayname
Adam Bradley63 - 01 2010 / (0)
 When addressing an email, it's often nice to include the name as well as the address. e.g. to send to:
John Doe <>
Notes just picks the "e-mail address" field to include in the header. Generally this is just the address, so your e-mail doesn't include any names in ...

Open -> Search (Type to Find) feature should search in Contacts

: Notes Client / Other
: contacts, open, seach
Hans Christian Koch1362 - 23 2009 / (0)
The 'Type to Find' feature in the Open menu, should return results from the local addressbook, so that its possible to search for contacts directly from the Open menu.

Gareth Howell545 - 14 2007 / (0)
