Lotus Notes 8.5.1 User Essentials PLUS Pack
Lotus Training Overview

The Lotus Notes 8.5.1 User Essentials PLUS Pack isn’t a traditional “course” in which you are guided through a structured sequence of concepts and experiences. Instead the PLUS Pack is a collection of standalone, advanced topics that you will want to learn about after you have taken the Lotus Notes 8.5.1 User Essentials course.

You may want to include some of the PLUS Pack topics to enhance the Lotus Notes 8.5.1 User Essentials course, or come back later to learn more about particular aspects of Notes on an as-needed basis.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course you will learn advanced concepts and skills related to these areas:
  • Mail
  • Calendar
  • Sametime
  • Document Editing
  • Search
  • User, Application, Document, and Workstation Security
  • Notes as an Internet client
  • Notes User Interface and Tools.
While most of the subjects in this course apply to both Notes Standard and Basic configurations, all the screens and commands demonstrated in this course are from the Notes Standard configuration.

Lotus Training Audience

This course is designed for Lotus Notes users who have mastered the content of the Lotus Notes 8.5.1 User Essentials course.

Lotus Training Course duration

There is no recommended duration for these materials.

Course design

This course combines concept presentations, demonstrations, and exercises to guide your learning. Though designed for instructor-lead classes, with the proper equipment and software individuals can also use this course for self-study.

Please consult the Set Up document for this course to make sure the correct environment is in place before starting the course.
