Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 16: Form events

Welcome to blog series part 16 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to talk about form events.

Okay, so the talk about form events usually starts of with the question:

Does DOCOVA have document events like onLoad, onUnload, QueryOpen, QuerySave and WebQueryOpen?

Yes.  DOCOVA supports both typical browser events like onLoad and onUnload but has also been extended to handle similar events that were found in Notes forms like QueryOpen, QuerySave, PostSave and so forth.  Many Notes applications made heavy use of these events, we couldn’t just leave them out now, could we?

DOCOVA implements these events in a similar fashion because they are useful and it makes migrating Notes application to DOCOVA much easier.  I mean, could you imagine having to try to implement these events in some other target collaboration platform aside from DOCOVA?  Good luck with that.

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 15: Private on first use folders

Welcome to blog series part 15 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I’m going to talk about good ‘ol Private on first use folders.

This is another one of those “interesting” Notes application design constructs.  In my journeys I don’t think I’ve ever come across this same sort of construct in any other application environment.  Anywhere.  Ever.  Sure, a private folder, but “…on first use” is the kicker.  Interestingly, this construct can be implemented with some creativity behind it.

DOCOVA supports “Private on first use folders”, depicted as “Content personal to each user”.  So, when a person accesses a “view” as a folder, it will be treated as though this folder is private to the user.

This is most useful when selecting documents manually.  One way that Notes applications leveraged this design construct in the past was that sometimes a search was performed to gather documents together and then present them to the specific User doing the search via this folder type.

There you go.  Supported.

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 14: Column sorting and categorizing

Welcome to blog series part 14 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I’m going to talk about view column sorting and categorizing.

All view sorting and categorizing functionality is supported in DOCOVA.  Additionally, other properties like “Show multiple values as separate entries” and showing response docs in a hierarchy are also supported.

I mean, as you get more in depth with DOCOVA, you’ll learn the breadth of the view object model and all the cool stuff you can do, even switching to Calendar and Gantt style views.

So ya, what can I tell ya.  That’s it for now.  Supported!  Bam!
