Designing the User Experience for Lotus Notes andSametime
with Tags: google X
Hi all, John Lance here. You may remember me from such past blog postings as "Mapping Imported Contacts"and "My Favorite Party Animals" (tip: monkeys are overrated, bulls are expensive, and goliath bird eating spiders get you a clear path to the buffet every time (of vital importance for those of us that wear extra large Lotusphere shirts)).
Moving right along...
We're hard at work here in Lotusville making it so that Samantha can subscribe to other calendars from her Notes calendar (i.e. she can see entries from other calendars in her Notes calendar). One particularly interesting side effect involves All Day Events.
Currently when Samantha creates an All Day event in her Notes calendar the event appears in the nontimed event area (that area at the top of the calendar) and the column has a light fill of the same color. When Samantha adds her personal google calendar (or Ted's calendar) she gets to pick a color for those calendars. Right now, any all day events on those calendars also colors the day. And, if you happen to have multiple all day events from multiple sources you wind up with a blend in the column.
So, should All Day Events from other calendars actually color the column, or should they just appear at the top in the nontimed event area?
Pink (on left) is from another calendar - Yellow (on right) is an All Day event on Samantha's calendar.
Thanks in advance.
