Newbie Looking for Lotus Notes Advice for implementing GTD
Has anyone gone through the complete process of implementing GTD on Lotus Notes? My selection of tools (company supplied) are Notes 6.0+ with a custom corporate mail template, and a Palm Treo 600.
Can someone point me in a useful direction?
I will write up something to share with you
I've been collecting my thoughts today in order to respond to your question. I do not get to post to this forum as often as I would like; however, your question pushed my hot button on three topics that I am passionate about. (GTD, Notes, and Wireless)
I'll try to post an overview to this forum later this evening.
Why not just set up an archive in Notes for your email?
w_i_t_n_a (great screen name, by the way :wink: ), why not just set up an archive database in Notes. It's automatic, and you can set the expiry period for the documents to be moved to the archive. This way you won't lose the Rich Text formatting and embedded objects, links etc. Best of all, there is nothing for you to buy. You already have the software! Should you ever need to restore messages from your live archive, you can simply move them back into your email database, or any other database for that matter.
For longer term archiving I am checking out the Notes Export facility and I am considering exporting all the emails to do with a completed project as structured text onto the fileserver along with the other project documentation prior to archiving. This will free up Notes server space and keep it manageable in the in the long term
Yes, you can archive Notes DB's to RO media (takes prep)
It is not just a matter of copying the file to CD.
There are several steps to follow to do this successfully.
Best for us to discuss this off-line later this week.
