Notes 8 Beta - Pinning the Open Bar / Launcher

March 13 2007

This one is for Anthony Iannotta, who commented about how the Notes 8 Public Beta does not allow one click to any of the PIM applications. Anthony, I completely agree. When I first saw Beta 1, I commented on this and asked for a solution. IBM delivered one :-)

You can easily pin the Open bar to the side of the screen, much like the bookmark bar in 5/6/7. To do this, just right-click on the Open bar and select the option. This is what you will get:

For new installs of the client, I think it is safe to say that the Open button should appear as it does today. For upgraders, maybe the best thing to do is start up as it does now, but add the "Dock Open Button" as a clickable action on the What's New page.
