Video: Starting Lotus Notes

The good news is that your company would never ever give you a notes client that hasn't already been set up, and tell you to fend for yourself. However, we all know that it always helps to see the startup, so that's where we're going to start, right from the beginning. The Lotus Notes client can be found either on the Desktop or by clicking Start > Lotus Notes 8.5. Once the Password dialog box comes up there is three pieces of information that need to be started: your username, your password and what location you are at.

Starting Lotus Notes

The good news is that your company would never ever give you a notes client that hasn't already been set up, and tell you to fend for yourself. However, we all know that it always helps to see the startup, so that's where we're going to start, right from the beginning. The Lotus Notes client can be found either on the Desktop or by clicking Start > Lotus Notes 8.5. Once the Password dialog box comes up there is three pieces of information that need to be started: your username, your password and what location you are at.

Usually the username and the location are going to be the same, but sometimes your company we'll want you to use a different location when you're working in the office and when you're working at home, or from a VPN location, but they'll tell you which one you are supposed to use. I'm going to put in my password. Now don't be alarmed when you see lots of characters appearing on the screen. It's a lot more than actual password that you're typing. This is a security method by IBM to prevent things like keylogger programs from getting your password. We click the Login button and we are ready to go in Lotus Notes.
