Once these are set, if a user selects Unlimited
for Calendar , Journal, and Mail data, instead of receiving all data for a particular application type, they will only receive data that passes the Administrator defined filter limit.
This helps prevent unexpected heavy loads on the server. The settings apply to all users on the system.
Using the Lotus Notes
Traveler administration database, select the Device Settings
view and then edit the Default Settings
document. Select the Preferences
tab and then the Filter Settings
tab. The default value will be set to Unlimited
, meaning that no filter is applied by the server by default. To set a filter limit, enter a number in days for one of the following settings. While mobile device users can set their filter limit lower than the defined maximum, anything higher will not be honored by the server.
Table 1. Filter settings
Email filter limit
Mail older than the Email filter limit will not be synchronized with the device.
Past events filter limit
Calendar events older than the past events filter limit will not be synchronized with the device. Note that recurring events that have an instance within the filter window will be synchronized, even if they have instances that start earlier that the past events filter limit.
Future events filter limit
Calendar events in the future that occur beyond the future events filter limit will not be synchronized with the device. Note that recurring events that have an instance within the filter window will be synchronized, even if they have instances that occur beyond the future events filter limit.
Journal filter limit
Journal entries modified earlier than the limit will not be synchronized to mobile devices that support Journal sync.
In Lotus Notes
Traveler releases 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168, data sync limits were set for the server using a setting in the NTSConfig.xml file. During upgrade these setting if found will be migrated to the corresponding notes.ini setting, such as NTS_USER_EMAIL_LIMIT
. These settings can still be set using notes.ini parameters if desired.
