    There is a customer template of Domino Directory http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21699618 that allows control Traveler settings vis Policies.
    You still can control device settings via lotustraveler.nsf (which is updated automatically during 9.0.1.4 patch), but some clients still prefer use Policy/Settings docs.

    On the fly spell check in IBM Notes (they way it should work)

    Vladislav Tatarincev  7 May 2015 10:10:50
    IBM Lotus Notes support many languages to be spell checked, for this to work you may have one language as default and it works fine.
    If you located in region where many languages are in use, then it is a pain, because to spell check text in different language you have to select it and TAG it as appropriate language
    http://randomtechmusings.blogspot.com/2011/08/multiple-dictionaries-and-spell-check.html

    I think it would be good if text is tagged according to current OS settings, if you type in English = text marked/Tagged as English, if you type, French/Latvian/German/Russian/etc, then text is automatically tagged. As result, user does not need to select text , Text Properties->Tag text as language. too many click.

    There is an SPR #YGAO9VYHFX in IBM about this, if you like please open case and add more weight to this SPR.

      Branding and customizing Discover page in Domino 9.0.1

      Vladislav Tatarincev  20 February 2015 12:21:46
      Branding Welcome screen in Notes was always interesting task. In Notes 9 it is a bit easier to do.

      The easies what can and need to be done, is to select QuickLinks tab to be default, and also add some corporate databases used by users.

      Desktop Settings, Basic tab has a new sections that allow to do things remotely for all users.
      Why to do this? Because this version will be used for 2-4 years, and you dont want default tab "Whats new in Lotus Notes" appear to user 4 years in a row." it adds value during first 2-3 month after migration.

      Syntax of adding corporate db to policy is the following.
      TITLE_OF_THE_DATABASE,  notes:///ReplicaID_Of_The_Database

      If you want to go deeper, you can even translate or localize and and branding logo to page.
      How to do it?

      Inside DATA directory of the client there are two files PopulatedTemplate.txt which is used by Lotus Notes client to generate PopulatedHTML.html
      Changes need to be done only in .txt file. When Notes is started

      You can also remove existing 2nd level tabs in your Discovery page and add some information about your systems. Kind of Workspace but corporate.

      When customized PopulatedTemplate.txt is saved, and IBM Notes client is restarted you see your changes.


      The only challenge that has left, how to deploy it centrally to all users. So far need to write agent (in mailfile?) and pull file from server and copy to DATA directory, or use Windows Login scripts.
      Anyway, Customizing Discovery page is very promising.  

      There are some functions used in PopulatedTemplate.txt like @Recent_apps@ and there is no desciption of this function. May be there are other @@ functions as well... :)
