Tweaking my Lotus Notes 8.5 Client

Getting a new HDD for my laptop was an excellent occasion to upgrade my Notes client to the latest version, 8.5, announced last month. Even thou I downloaded IBM’s internal installation package for 8.5, there are couple of tweaks I needed to do, gadgets to add, live-text to create.

Luis Benitez is usually my source for Lotus Connections stuff, but his latest tweak is inteneded for all you Lotus Notes and Lotus Connections users out there – enabling Lotus Connections’ Person card in Lotus Notes 8.5 Activities. The tweak is easy, no technical expertise needed, and upgrades my user experience – now I can access all the social aspects of an activity member.
Thanks Luis!
