LN852 – Lotus Notes 8.5.2 User Essentials

During this course you will learn how to use the core applications included in Lotus Notes, including Mail, Calendar, Contacts, To Do, and Notebook. This course teaches you how to perform the most common tasks in the Notes Standard configuration.

The application you will use the most is Mail, as it is a key personal and business application. You will learn how to use the Calendar to organize your time and track your tasks in the To Do application.

You will keep track of people in Contacts and keep information in your Notebook. As you use the core Notes applications, you will recognize a common pattern that builds your competence and confidence in using almost any Notes application such as a Discussion, which you will join at the end of the course.

Because Notes incorporates Sametime instant messaging, you will also know when people are online so you can chat in real time.

Beyond the technical aspects of using Notes, you will learn the “best practices” of how to use Notes to become a more effective communicator and collaborator.
