IBM Notes it's a powerful collaborative client that needs to be rebuild with new framework
Opmerkingen: I work with Notes from 10+ years and I loved it. Right now the development made by HCL has restarted the engine so i'm confident Notes will have a better future. This review is based on what i've seen until V10, we will see something better for sure at the end of this year with V 11
Pluspunten: Notes could be considered a standard. It's available from 20+years and today you could open and use application build 10 years ago without any issue: this is insane. If you have learn to use Notes 10 years ago and you have to use it today , don't be scared, you will be able to use it in a seconds.
Minpunten: Starting from version 8.x IBM has decided to base the full client on eclipse framework and this was a big mistake that have almost killed the product. 8/10 years later, we are on version 10 where we have decent performance because SSD and modern CPU but the client performance of last years has pointed customers in other directions. Another cons is Notes is not easy to be used : if you have to use it on your company plan also education.

Opmerkingen: I was an admin and user.
Pluspunten: Notes was a requirement at Zodiac Aerospace. We used it for the Database Workflows and Email. I really liked the way you could setup workflows and attach them to an email workflow. This was handy. It was definitely easier to give someone access to another mailbox than Outlook.
Minpunten: It is Notes. The standard email is outlook, and so a lot of times the emails you get wouldn't show up correctly. There were a lot of limitations on Notes. It had to have it's own mailbox on Android devices. It caused a gap in my learning of the new outlook.

IBM Notes Review
Opmerkingen: It is very helpful in setting a professional mailbox for users but not suitable for file collaboration for large number of users
Pluspunten: Many features are available to organise and differentiate emails. Supports multiple database which can support data inputs from forms submitted by users and collaborating with other users
Archive of old emails may become corrupted when they reach larger sizes, it is recommended to split archive into smaller files.
The search function may take longer for larger database

The safest and most robust way to manage my Email
Opmerkingen: For a while I was a user of IBM Notes and with a little effort I got to know it thoroughly and I can say that it is a powerful application like few others and capable of achieving great things if we take the time to use it. The organization and security of my email tray is excellent using Notes
Pluspunten: IBM Notes provides an enormous level of security and robustness to manage your mail tray without loss of information, providing the best functions to organize incoming and outgoing emails. In addition, their collaborative options are very useful when working as a team
Minpunten: The interface is very rudimentary and it is a little complicated to get familiar with the program. It is difficult to get some options among the hundreds it have and that is why it is difficult to know the program completely.

It is a good alternative
Opmerkingen: Management is little complex. It is working different then Outlook. Address book integration is useful. We integrated with Exchange mail servers.
Pluspunten: You can update IBM Notes mailbox database remotely with admin console. When you changed mailbox database IBM notes returning to new visual GUI.
Minpunten: Notes needs to user file to open application. If you loose the user file Admin have to give you a new file. Admin must keep a copy of all users files.

Notes is complete , robust and secure
Opmerkingen: I work on notes from 10+ years and it stable, robust and secure. No, after IBM sell it to HCL i expect to have a lot of improvements during next month and releases.
Pluspunten: HCL Notes is complete robost and secure without parargon to his competitor. Another pro Notes support local replica to permit offline work with differential sync.
Minpunten: Notes it's not easy, the gui maybe looks a little bit outdated. Another cons it's the weight of the current client

Great all around software
Opmerkingen: Great all around program
Pluspunten: This is a great software - not only can you use it for emails it is capable of supplying many different database software all in the one place - it is timeless
Minpunten: This is an all around great program which incorporates email and endless databases and I can't think of a single con to this software
Beoordeeld op 17-5-2019
Pluspunten: Ease of use and plenty of space available for email storage. Mailboxes and calendars can be shared among colleagues, for us this functionality is very useful.
Minpunten: Sometimes there are delays in receiving e-mails and the search (especially if using the client installed on the PC) does not work well.

Achieve the free flow of a document that needs the authorization of several sources with IBM
The server offers platforms for platforms, which include Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP, Linux.
Notes is a communication system that allows sending emails and managing calendars and ideal agendas for the approval and distribution of documents.
Pluspunten: What I like the most is sending emails and managing calendars and agendas, sharing databases with information, such as documentary bases, procedures, manuals or discussion forums.
Minpunten: Domino applications can be accessed through the Notes Client, through a web browser such as IE, Firefox or Safari and mobile devices, they should implement a larger system with new access routes to the application.

My experience with IBM Notes has been good overall. I do feel like it is starting to faze out though
Pluspunten: I like most that Notes allows you to have Databases inside of it and give you the ability to manage them easily.
Minpunten: I like least that the software has a lot of bugs and will have frequent client crashes which in turn makes the software look bad.

A desktop program for work-related mail and calendar management
Pluspunten: A client-server mail client which incorporates email and schedule elements to organize your work-related items. many features include out of office and Signatures.
Minpunten: Connection issues to the server. Username and passwords are a bit of a hassle. The mail has a hard time refreshing the mailbox for new mail. The Out of Office won't let you select certain days. ie. If you worked only 4 days a week.

Lotus Notes Review
Opmerkingen: We use notes to host our shared databases as well as for email purposes.
Pluspunten: The ability to handle vast databases on one workspace as well as the ability to share the workspace among different users.
Minpunten: LN is not a light as other mail applications

Good, robust communication system
Opmerkingen: It has been a great experience using IBM Notes for work communication.
Pluspunten: I like that IBM Notes is very easy to use for someone who has never used the software before. Easy to send emails, schedule meetings, etc.
Minpunten: There is nothing fancy about the software but I don't believe it is missing anything crucial. Simple and effective.

Former Lotus Notes - Enterprise grade email
Opmerkingen: The other two major contestants (GSuite and Outlook) are better looking and have the same tools as IBM Notes (collaboration, office, browser).
Pluspunten: Enterprise grade, secure and fast set up, the integrated browser and the ability to build simple workflow applications.
Minpunten: Its UI can feel very antiquated compared to the simple clean UIs that are used by market leaders. Great functionalities but not groudbreaking, is focusing more on technical abilities (DB Management) than user friendliness.

Pluspunten: Sametime, scheduling meetings internally.
Minpunten: Not vastly used with contractors making instant communication and calendar looking up challenging.

I love Lotus Notes!
I love the stability and the fact that you can have local replicas of everything on your computer.
It never freezes like Outlook does when trying to reach the server and is very sturdy.
The browser integration and spreadsheet integration is very good as well.
It handles attachments like a beast and calendar features are great.
Minpunten: The interface CAN BE a little rough around the edges depending on your version and the template that you use. You need to be somewhat an advanced user to be able to maintain it.

It does the bare minimum and it is functionally intuitive
Opmerkingen: It lacks some features other email clients have but it works just fine.
Pluspunten: I like that the UX and functionality is really intuitive and simple. Setting up signatures and meetings is pretty easy to figure out.
Minpunten: I really dislike that I did not have the ability to sync the calendar with any other calendar. Being able to sync with google calendar would have been the most convenient.

It is time for IBM Notes to end.
Opmerkingen: I really do not like this software. I came from another organization that uses a much more modern toolset for office and business management and the difference was striking. I know its in the works to evaluate and update to another program and cannot wait for this happen. It really impacts the quality of what we send and don't send and our integration and project management abilities as an organization that needs those to be seamless. It CREATE barriers for business rather than reducing them.
Pluspunten: I do not like IBM Notes. I do not find any pros. I could say that, IBM Notes does have a somewhat clean interface... not perfect though... and you can create databases of information and it is integrated.
Minpunten: It looks like it is from the 90s. It does not allow easy picture insertion into emails or other files in general. Emails sent from it do not look good and do not look like what I sent originally. There are too many clicks needed to get to certain pieces of basic information. Group emails and management is horrible. The calendar is unwieldly.

Multi functional software
Opmerkingen: It is a good multi functional software although it is slightly outdated now
Pluspunten: I like that this program will allow users to have their emails in the same place as numerous, useful databases including holiday booking
Minpunten: This is a little out dated now but still a useful tool. many people haven't heard of it as they rely on Outlook

Pluspunten: IBM notes allows you to archive. It allows you to have a organized workspace. I like the chatting tool sametime, very useful.
Minpunten: I dislike the fact that is not possible to attach a message into a new one. In my opinion it is not friendly.

Doesn't work well for a software license library, knowledge base, or help desk.
Pluspunten: It is quick to save and update information, such as ticket comments in the help desk module. IBM Notes is a local application and not a website.
Minpunten: It is difficult to keep track of tickets. You cannot sort tickets or add columns to the overview screen. You can't see when a ticket was last updated in the overview screen. You cannot communicate to users through the help desk module. Searching is poor - For example, if I wanted to find a user in the Address Book, I have to type in their full last name, not just the first few letters of their last name.

IBM Notes Review
Opmerkingen: Did not see many benefits other then an old company relationship was the reason why we even held on to notes in the first place.
Pluspunten: Notes is one of the most archaic ESPs out there. I am very shocked that it is still in use to be honest. It is nothing more than a serviceable email platform.
Minpunten: Old interface, archaic functionality, always crashed. Things that normally would take seconds seemed to take minutes on minutes.
