Lotus Notes 7 Content Authors
Lotus Training Overview

Notes offers so much more than just Mail and Calendars. This course gives you experience using other kinds of Notes databases so that you can become an active contributor to the knowledge shared by your organization.

During this course you will learn how to use your personal Journal database and participate in a Discussion with other users. The emphasis of this course is how to author database content using the full range of formatting tools.

To organize all the information you encounter, this course teaches you how to Bookmark useful databases, views, and documents, and how to configure Notes to start up where you left off when you quit work yesterday.

As you expand your Notes world in this course beyond just Mail, you will learn how to customize your Notes environment so that you can be a more effective contributor and collaborator.

Equally as important as contributing information is being able to use the Notes search tools, including full text search. In addition to the search tools, you will also configure Interest Profiles and Database Subscriptions so that you are automatically informed when new documents that meet your criteria are added to databases.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • create a personal Journal database from a database template
  • participate in a shared Discussion database on a Domino Server
  • format Rich Text fields that include bulleted and numbered lists, and tables
  • find information using the Notes search tools, including full text search
  • create and manage Bookmarks and Bookmark Folders
  • save the state of Notes when you exit so it will start up where you last left off
  • customize your Notes environment by adjusting the Toolbars and Status Bar
  • create new Welcome Pages and set one as your opening Home Page
  • define an Interest Profile and subscribe to a database so that you are mailed newsletters alerting you new documents added to databases.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is designed for Notes users who have been given Author access to databases and who are active document contributors. These users are expected to produce well-formatted documents and use sophisticated search tools to find information.
