The site is a treasure with focused information on all things Notes and BlackBerry. I later realized that two of the brains behind this site are Bill Buchan and Jason Hook, both of whom I had recently met by way of introduction from Bruce. And, I'll get to meet these gents in person next week at ILUG. Small world.
Great site. Worth bookmarking. http://www.notesberry.org
Many features of interest to me and my clients: PDF Integration built-in, integration with Notes, ODF Support, MS Word Doc support. Did I mention that Symphony is free?
You can learn more and download Symphony for free, here.
As I prepare for Wednesday's meeting, I want to make sure that I show you things that you will find useful - things which you can take back and put into practice right away.
I have 3 very quick questions to help me prepare...
These questions assume that you are already using, have tried using, or are considering using Lotus Notes as your GTD Implementation tool.
1. What is a key frustration to successfully managing projects and actions in Lotus Notes? (e.g. What gets in the way of doing this easily?)
2. If you could have any feature you wanted in Notes to support you in better managing your actions and projects, what would that be? (e.g. What's missing? What would help you be even more productive with Notes?)
3. What would you most like to learn about at Wednesday's meeting? (Please agenda, attached.)
Thank you for your comments.
The meeting will be in two parts. The agenda is below.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
How would you answer questions #1 and #2?

This means end users can:
- look at a list of Office documents stored in a SharePoint site within the Notes 8 client, and drag-and-drop those documents into a Notes email message or calendar appointment
- check out documents in SharePoint directly from the Notes user interface
- drag an attachment out of a Notes email or database and drop it into the appropriate SharePoint site
I look forward to reading Michael's review of this.
Kelly just gave us a tour on how to setup Notes and Outlook as GTD implementation tools. Even though I think I know this stuff, I still learn new things and I got to share a few tips of my own. Listening to some of the questions from the audience inspired a few new ideas for features I plan to build into eProductivity for Lotus Notes to make getting things done with Lotus Notes easier. I've got those items on my agenda list to discuss with my dev team.
The seminar is going well, Kelly's in peak form, people are learning and laughing at the stories she's sharing from her work in the GTD trenches. (Example: Most full e-mail box? 87,000 emails. True story from Kelly.)
Well, time to get back to the seminar. I'll try to post another highlight, soon.
Update: Chris is ahead by 45,000 points.
Here's how this works:
Z represents the successful outcome - what your project will look like when done.
A represents the next single physical action to take to move forward.
b...y represents any additional action steps (but not the next action) along the way.
Now, here's the secret: Z (the project) goes on your project list. A (the next action) goes on the appropriate action list. Everything else (b...y) needs to be parked somewhere, but if they are not next actions they do not belong on your current working list.

On a 1-10 scale, how would you rate your productivity over the last two weeks?Great question. Some surprising answers. I look forward to hearing what your experiences are.
1= I should have stayed in bed.
10=Master of Control & Perspective
What supports you/gets in the way of you being at 10 more often?
Kelly Forrister is our presenter today, so I'm certain it will be a great day of learning and fun with a group of people committed to getting things done at work and play. I've had the good fortune to work with Kelly at four different organizations over the past 15 years. She's as passionate as I am about productivity and she's also a geek and we share a mutual interest for high-tech gear to support our productive lifestyle. (If you haven't done so, check out Kelly's blog.) Oh, and did I mention that Kelly uses Lotus Notes? She and I have been using Lotus Notes productivity since the early R3/R4 days.
