GTD (Getting Things Done) is a well-known methodology that helps us to group to-do items into particular sections / groups and then move to-dos forth and back based on their progress. Defined by GTD methodology we can use the following basic sections (the section usage/naming depends completely on user and particular GTD board can manage different sections to reflect the board purpose):
  • in queue: all todos without immediate schedule (to hire the building we need  for the next year conference)
  • ASAP: all to-dos that I have to start work on as soon as possible (to prepare the course agenda)
  • immediately: all to-dos that must be  managed just now (to buy tickets )
  • waiting for response: all todos waiting for someone's else response (an offer has been sent and we are waiting on response now)
  • sometimes: todos for the future with no deadlines enabled (to learn Spanish)
GTD is available here to help user to manage all todos in NET.Notes EVENTS.  User can create his own sections, change their order and move to-dos among them by using drag & and drop pattern. Todos can be arranged to many different GTD boards.

NET.Notes EVENTS - Overview

David Marko  8 April 2015 13:33:52
"NET.Notes EVENTS" serves as a full featured software system that supports events organization of any kind … including sports, school, public or private events. The heart of "NET.Notes EVENTS" is the event card that concentrates all significant features including:
  • sections - todo's list is sorted out into sections. Sections reflect event logic and help us to separate particular events. User can move todos among sections using drag&drop. Entire sections can be reorganized on the screen the same way .
  • single line with a todo displays some significant information: subject, manager name, due date. By using a single click we can display and edit the todo in modal window.
  • when todo list  grows up, we can filter the todos list on the screen by several criteria including ownership or status information
  • statistics panel displays aggregated data like number of todos, number of closed todos etc. for this particular event
  • each todo item optionally contains budget information. Subtotals and total value is displayed in todo list.
  • to take event with you or to send event details to some other people we can print event data to PDF format. We can then print it or send by email.

Alternatives for Lotus Notes and Xpages applications - we are adopting Symfony Web Framework ...

Stanislav Marszalek  20 January 2015 10:37:25
We had a quite challenging year here at TCL DigiTrade,  As a traditional Lotus Notes shop, which is focused on everything around Notes for almost 20 years, we’ve made a huge step forward to web and mobile application development outside of Domino world. Lotus Notes market is steadily decreasing which impacts also our company, so our main objective in the last year, was to find an alternative to that product. Using our experience from analysis of many different Notes applications and their aspects , which include workflows, access rights management, document management, connection to email systems or relational databases, we’ve begun to develop a bunch of applications, called NET.Notes.  For this purpose we have adopted the following development stack:
But in fact, NET.Notes started as Xpages application using Notes as database and then it was ported to MongoDB and Symfony. We had to face a lot of challenges  on the road, because we wanted to implement all good things which you can find in Notes applications. You can imagine an access rights, workflow, richtext capability, emails, printouts, categorized views, searching etc. As a part of the task, we prepared a tool for data migration  from Lotus Notes(NSF) to MongoDB, which can move not only simple data, but also rich texts and attachments. That has required lots of testing, dead ends, new beginning, lot of effort. But now we can say, what can be done, what is impossible and what can be done in much better way and I think that we can offer a quite good alternative for those, who want to or has to move their Notes apps to a different environment. Apart from that, such a move puts a high demands on developers, who had to start to learn completely new tools, programming languages and databases. That is very challenging, learning curve is quite steep and it takes months to adopt  that new programming environment and model..

In the new year we will continue to offer standard Notes and Xpages application, but the main focus will be on new web and mobile applications based on NET.Notes. To see NET.Notes screens or even ask for live demo, visit our new website

Notes data move to MongoDB

Stanislav Marszalek  30 September 2014 09:57:11
We have already written several articles about the document-oriented database MongoDB. For many properties similar to IBM Notes we use it in our web applications based on PHP and Symfony. For purpose of data synchronization from Lotus Notes to MongoDB we've developed a converter. Document-oriented nature of MongoDB database allows the transfer lot of different data types, such as RichText, attachments or multi-valued fields.
The converter itself is in the form of Lotus Notes application and you can set up entire data synchronization there. The configuration contains:
  • Notes server and file path
  • Form name for data filtering
  • Last modification data to fine tune synchronization
  • Field mapping

blog2014_09_11_02 style=
Field mapping is done in the form of separate documents, where you can specify:
  • Lotus Notes source data - it may be a single field, formula or attachment
  • MongoDB field name
  • Multivalue field type
  • Field Type – apart from common field types, such as text, number, date, it also supports RichText (they are converted into HTML) and Attachments (which are stored in GridFS, file store of MongoDB)
The synchronization can be run manually or periodically. It uses Lotus Notes document unique ID as a main key to properly connect all related data..
