The company I am at now, has in their wisdom created a sametime directory that does not include the Notes Abbreviated or canonical form. ?!?&$£!
So I have to use shortname or email address.
Fortunately I do store the email address in another database, so I can grab it.
Is there a way of showing the online presence using the email address but showing the Abbreviated name.
In the client for now, but in web soon...
I have tried
synonyms - not with name types,
embedded view - doesn't work
narrow NativeOS field type - use fixed chars 3 followed by actual text - bit clunky and get status from name
& had some success with layers but a bit messy.
Also is there a way of showing online presence when editing a document?
