Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

 

I'm using PC Suite at work to sync all my calendar information to my N97, as the company uses Lotus Notes. It was one of the main reasons I went for the N97 rather than the iPhone. I'm using Ovi Suite 2 at home but haven't set it up at work as it doesn't seem to support Lotus Notes when I've had a look through the set-up options. There only seems to be various incarnations of the dreaded Outlook.

 

Does OS2 support Lotus Notes for Calendar syncing?

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

Hi roz_n97, currently Nokia Ovi Suite doesn't support syncing with Lotus Notes. Might be good idea to check Lotus Notes Traveler for S60, it supports syncing of email, calendar, contacts with Lotus Notes. Lotus Notes Traveler

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

Cheers saylinen,

 

I had a look at the IBM site. Terms like "eligable customers" and other comments make me shy away when I can get along very well with PC Suite.. I've got no idea whether our company has Lotus Domino 8.5 software?!?

 

How much longer are Nokia going to support PCS?

Will OS2+ get Lotus Notes compatability in the future? Seems an odd thing to remove...

 

Looks like I'll be sticking with PCS at work for the time being.

Cheers,

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

I have Traveler on my N95 but it does NOT sync contacts -- that is an option that my company has not enabled. So I need to stay with PCS until you add Lotus Notes support to Ovi Suite, even if it's just to sync the contacts. Is that even in the plans?

Hello saylinen,  if this is correct then Ovi is about as useful to me as a chocolate tea pot.  What a howler.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

What about Lotus Organizer ?

In my company Outlook is disabled, forbidden... so no option for me.

That's why i am using Lotus Organizer.

In PCSuite i am able to synch with either Outlook, or Organizer.... what are the options in OVI?

@JTQfan

coudn't agree more

 

The fact that Nokia supported Lotus Notes synchronization [locally on my PC, not only server-based] used to be my primary reason for buying Nokia. Seems that I'll have to reconsider next time I choose a new phone.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

I am very dissapointed about ovi not supporting Lotus Notes. After introducing an software update on my N95 even the old PC suite does not function anymore with Lotus Notes. This update has really and significantly decreased the functionality of my N95.

 

I warn everybody not to use the newest software update or OVI on an N95 working with Lotus Notes.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

The last figures I saw estimated Lotus Notes market share of enterprise email at about 40% (vs. 55% for Outlook). Cutting out 40% of your client base doesn't sound like a great idea. Especially when Blackberries still work with Notes..... just sayin'...

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

I do not use OVI but stick to Nokia PC Suite because that does support Lotus Notes. I would not want to buy a new phone which does not synchronize with my work work agenda.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

As my company runs Lotus Notes and I rely heavily on the phone calendar for meetings I am not able to use the Ovi Suite. I will move to a product that supports my business needs.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

I get the E66 from my former colleque, so i had no choice. In our company we are using Lotus Notes, so i have to synchronize with it. Other colleques of mine have a Blackberry or iPhone, the only thing i can say is: NOKIA doesn't made it's homework.

 

The good thing is, the contract for the E66 only runs about 1 year to future. After that i will never choose a NOKIA again. With this Nokia i feel like i switched back into stoneage: Bad battery life time, no usability in the menu, so on and so on...

 

@NOKIA: This is a software fail and so a business fail. Good to see that some parts of your production moved out of germany, because germany stands for quality....

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

Hi,

 

I too, must say that I am very disapointed with decision to no longer support client sync with Lotus Notes. 

 

My N95 is just about age to be replaced. Without Lotus Notes client support, I am afraid, I won't choose Nokia phone again.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

Talk about going backwards!

 

Who's bright idea was it to take the Lotus Sync out when PC Suite was switched to the new OVI software, I thought the idea was to add functionality not take it away.

 

If you use PC Suite to sync to lotus (like I do/did) don't put the OVI software on your computer keep the PC Suite.

Re: Does Ovi Suite 2 support Lotus Notes

Is there any plan that the future version of NOS would support lotus notes sycing. This was a very good option in PC suite.

Without Notes support, I've just removed Ovi Suite 2 from my computer... and maybe nokia from my next mobile choice...
