This tool would be of value to us. We have over 2,000 Notes Domino applications that some of them we need to remove this flag on certain design elements in production because they were activiated by accident in the past.

Are there any plans to release a tool that will turn off the flags for these documents?

 
I know there used to be a tool to turn on the flags for custom folders in a mailfile when it was discovered that folders would disappear after an upgrade if they weren't set. Something similar would be handy in this case also.

There are currently no plans to release such a tool. How important would such a tool be, for which customers(and/or how big is the customer who wants it)? Let me know by responding here.

Please make the "About", "Using" and "Icon" design elements updatable be the Design task in one of the future releases.

@Charles RobinsonNotes C API isn't needed. Just use NotesNoteCollection and reset design element's item "$Flags" - prohibited ones contain letter "P".

@Charles,

 
Does this ring a bell:

Yes, a tool (if possible, a server command) would be quite welcome.

@Feri - thats not the case for About and Using design notes - its still $Flags but R is used to indicate it can be overridden. Blank means it is protected.

Some code that may help:

You can't go past Help Software's Power Tools at http://www.helpsoft.com which has 73 utilities to help ease tasks for Notes Administrators and especially during upgrades including:

 
Find Protected Design Elements - Searches the design elements of all selected databases and reports design elements that will not be updated when the design is refreshed or replaced from a template. Any design elements that have the "Do Not Allow Design Refresh/Replace To Modify" (R4) or "Prohibit Design Refresh Or Replace To Modify" (R5 and later) flag set will be reported. This utility can also easily Unprotected Design Elements before applying a new template.
 
Find Unprotected Design Elements - Searches the design elements of all selected databases and reports design elements that will be updated when the design is refreshed or replaced from a template. Any design elements that do not have the "Do Not Allow Design Refresh/Replace To Modify" (R4) or "Prohibit Design Refresh Or Replace To Modify" (R5 and later) flag set will be reported. The primary purpose of this utility is to allow Notes/Domino administrators to easily find and protect folders that a user has added to their mail file. When a user has created a folder it is often created in an unprotected state and will be lost when a new mail file template is applied. This utility can be used to easily identify unprotected folders (or any other design element) and protect them before applying a new template.
 
The great thing about Power Tools it is licensed per Lotus Notes Administrator, NOT per Domino Server, so it costs less than $10 per utility. Don't forget to add the huge annual maintenance bill of $79 ($1 per utility!) ;)
 
(I am just a great fan of the all the Help Software Tools for many years and Brian provides excellent product and service for a very reasonable cost)

@Steve Castledine

 
You are right. Sorry for misleading, I was peeking into my generic code for reseting this flag in views and scripts. Thanks!
