Before installing IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ services for Lotus Domino® or using the expanded membership feature, planning and requirement information must be considered.
Lotus Quickr services for Lotus Domino is a secure, portable, self-service Web application that provides instant, centralized, team places that can be used in both intranet and extranet deployments. It provides seamless online and offline support and enables teams to:
- Coordinate people, tasks, plans, and resources.
- Collaborate by sharing and discussing ideas, resolving issues, co-authoring documents, exchanging files, and managing schedules.
- Communicate actions, decisions, key findings, and other knowledge by posting them to the team place.
To facilitate rapid deployment, ready-made templates are included. Use these templates, called PlaceTypes, to create sites designed to manage projects, facilitate discussion, plan events, or author and store project documents. Users can easily create, manage, and customize places. Using Java, HTML, and other tools, users with advanced Web skills can implement sophisticated customizations.
The Lotus Domino environment: qd85
IBM Lotus Quickr runs as a Web application on an IBM Lotus Domino server and leverages several of the server features.
Directory services: qd85
Place membership lists can be created locally in places (in CONTACTS1.NSF), so that specifying place members from a user directory is not required. However, connecting to a user directory maximizes the features that are available to you.
Security considerations: qd85
Decide whether users will authenticate anonymously or be required to use name-and-password authentication and whether to limit who can create places individually or by group.
International considerations: qd85
If you use any IBM Lotus Quickr server that stores non-English content, you must set up the server to generate output using UTF-8 encoding so that page content displays correctly in non-English languages.
Lotus Quickr system requirements: qd85
Before installing IBM Lotus Quickr, review the hardware and software requirements.
Lotus Quickr release notes: qd85
