We have all been living with the Mailbox in the IBM Notes client but because I work with lots of different clients I rarely use my own id. Therefore my main mail client has been iNotes / IPhone mail thru Traveler / Verse iPhone app. But when I upgraded my machine to Windows 10 and the Traveler server to the latest version I found that it works great to use the Traveler mail with the Windows 10 built in mail and calendar client.
Yes it’s a bit limited, mostly that you can only have one email open at a time. You can’t use Outlook because that client is blocked on the Traveler server, probably because some advanced communication that the Outlook client uses. Hopefully they will release that support at IBM Connect this month.
So if you haven’t tried it yet and have a Traveler version that supports the Verse client you can try it you self. Feel free to make a comment on you experience and use of other clients against the Domino server.
I got an idea about how to improve the calendar integration in traveler.
Unfortunatly the idea will only work for the Android version because I don’t think you can control the phone in IOS.
The idea is that you could control settings in the phone using the calendar, this isn’t anything new if we are talking about you office phone but on your mobile phone and the change is not done in the switch board.
What am I talking about then, in an Calendar appointment you setup a profile/Category i.e “quite meeting”
In your traveler client in the mobile phone you can specify your own profiles and you can get predefined profiles from the traveler server. when a meeting ocurr and you have a corresponding profile the settings for this profile apply to your phone i.e go to flightmode, Turn off ringtone, perhaps activate wifi.
Then you can control alot off cool stuff using your calendar. And the profile in the phone specifies what should happened when the meeting starts and what should happens when it ends.
That’s my idea for the future of Traveler.
Remember where you read about it first
