How do I Open an Application or Database

Almost all application databases are stored on NotesUK1/Microlease, in a folder called Microlease Applications. (See table at the bottom for exactly where)

OK, so how do I open the one I want

  1. Press Ctrl+O for "open"

    • Lotus Notes is like any other program, Ctrl+O is the shortcut that opens files
  2. Choose NotesUK1/Microlease (or NotesUK2 see above) from the drop down (or type it in), and just double click the Mail folder to see all the mail

What to do if "computer says no" (Not Authorised to perform that......) when you open a file

If you see an access denied message, email helpdesk and copy in your line-manager, your manager should inform IT ServiceDesk of their consent.

Just as we can all open Microsoft Word documents by browsing the G drive, we can open Lotus Notes databases by browsing NotesUK1 or NotesUK2.


How do I Open a Mail File

Almost every employee's mail is stored on NotesUK2/Microlease, in a folder called mail

Whereas other mail not owned by a person tends to be stored on NotesUK1/Microlease in a folder called mail

If you are opening someone else's mail and they are nearby, please ask them to give you access (delegate) their mail to you.

That means that if you or a team member is going away on holiday, you can arrange cover without needing to call the IT service desk

If you see an access denied message, email helpdesk and copy in your line-manager, your manager should inform IT ServiceDesk of their consent.

Just as we can all open Microsoft Word documents by browsing the G drive, we can open Lotus Notes databases by browsing NotesUK1 or NotesUK2.
