Administrators can use Domino policy to control visibility of the Lotus Notes user's Open list -- as either an Open button or a visible left pane Open list -- in Notes. The Menus
tab on the Domino desktop policy settings document contains the Open list/Launcher
section, which contains two mutually exclusive options -- Open list
and Docked as a bookmark bar
To expose the Open list in a Notes left pane, enable the Docked as a bookmark bar
option on the policy page. This sets the "docked" list of user bookmarks as the default when the user opens Notes.
expose the Open list in a Notes left pane, enable the Open button
option on the policy page. The Notes user can access the list by clicking the "Open" button in their user interface.
Users can toggle visibility between the Open button and the left pane Open list using the View
> Dock the Open List
