Lotus Notes Bookmark and Workspace Usage Survey

by Volker Weber

IBM wants your input for the next Notes client. We discusses the workspace yesterday, and Chris Linfoot wants to get some numbers behind it. Preliminary result: Three out of four Notes users prefer workspace. This is all nice and dandy, but won't have any impact on IBM. However, here is a survey that is designed to get some real input on how you use bookmarks and the workspace.

This survey is designed to gain information from you about the way you use Lotus Notes Bookmarks and Workspace in version 6.0 or later. (If you use an earlier version of Lotus Notes please do not take this survey).

We are gathering feedback to help us in our design efforts for future releases of Lotus Notes. The information you provide will directly influence an upcoming version of Lotus Notes!

This survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

There are only 8 questions, so it will never take 10-15 minutes. Go ahead and take the survey >

There was a second survey around the usage of location documents, but that seems to have been closed already.

[Thanks, Oliver]


15 minutes? For those who cannot read, perhaps. Oh, and if you answer question 3a as No, don't skip to question four, as you won't be able to submit the form ;-)

And you should send this on to your end-users. Remember we are not your typical Notes end users :-)

Wow, deja vu - I was clearing out my email the other day and came across a "thank you for participating in the Bookmarks/Workspace survey" email from the last one of these IBM did.

Ross Hawkins, 2006-02-09

Great survey. I already registed to have a chance to give some more input when ever possible. Is there no chance to find the other survey (locations)?!

Joerg Rafflenbeul, 2006-02-09

Don't assume "won't have any impact on IBM". Kevin Cavanaugh promised at Lotusphere that Hannover will keep the workspace.

Bob Balaban, 2006-02-09

Indeed. Kevin was the first to show it. And It's A Good Thing(tm), because customers like to keep things that work.

What I meant to say was, that IBM won't be affected by Chris Linfoot's poll. Also note, that a couple of IBM bloggers try to ignore this as good as they can. :-)

Volker Weber, 2006-02-09

Sniff. You mean IBM is ignoring me? I can't believe it!

Chris Linfoot, 2006-02-09

To Joerg and others,
Sorry that you missed the Locations survey. The best way to make sure you get any future surveys or requests for usability test participants is to go register at our web site:

Mary Beth Raven, 2006-02-09

Ignoring? No. No offense to Chris, but isn't his audience a bit self-selecting? How many non-IT end-users have voted?

Ed Brill, 2006-02-09

There is your answer, Chris.
