Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Simple way to move to new computers

Make it easy to move the useres notes environment (bookmarks, addresses other settings) to a new computer - something like the marvell client integrated in notes.

    Just copy the 'C:/Users/<user>/AppData/Local/IBM/ folder to the new computer, after installing Notes as a multi-user client.   Strictly speaking, this should already be part of the user's backup data set (on a separate storage device, e.g. dedicated NAS), for recovery purposes.  I frequently do a restore from the last backup to a new computer when upgrading/replacing someone's PC.

    You really should not do that. Copying the cache could extremly slow down the installation. (Maybe that's why so many people complain about slow clients).

    See. this technote: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21195217

    And: What you say is technically (nearly) ok. But lots of software does somethink like this 'as default'. Nothing that has to be done in an addtional step by using ohter software. And this is in my opionion the problem of notes. With notes you got a very large set of tools and you must know how to use these tools. This is ok if you are an admin or a developer. But most end users just want to use notes to do their daily work. They want to do something and they won't have to ask how or to think a long time. They just want to press a button and then it should be done.
