Admin Notes: The Hidden Field

I was implementing a third party plugin to Domino this morning, and was asked to put a certain value in a certain field.

However, search as I did, I couldn't find the field in the server document.

As you know, the server document uses the server form (server) in the address book (names.nsf).   I opened Domino Designer, opened the form, found the field I was looking for, checked the 'hise when' value, and discovered what I had to do to make it visible.

Could only happen in Domino, and for that I love it.

    You could fly blind. Use a smart button to just set the value. Schema free rocks

  2. You could use NoteMan (a tool from MartinScott), or Formul8 (a sidebar widget).
    Even if the field was not there on the form, you could create the field on the document and set its value.
