profiledocument (Domino DTD)

You can create a profile document using a profile form. On the profile form, specify the field values to store in the profile document based on your design needs. You can create one document for a database or multiple documents that are differentiated by a key you specify. Profile documents are different from standard documents because they are invisible in views, they are not included in the document count for a database, and they are cached while the database containing them is open. This makes profile documents useful for storing database-wide data, such as environment variable information, or per-user data, such as user preference information. In either case, because profile documents are cached, you can quickly retrieve information stored in them.
