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.
