Integrating with other applications

IBM® iNotes® can be integrated with IBM® Sametime® and IBM® Connections.

To provide users with the ability to use IBM® Sametime® you can integrate iNotes® with Sametime® (instant messaging). Sametime® provides integrated, real-time chat features for iNotes® users. Sametime® is not required for iNotes® use.

You can make file sharing easier for iNotes® users by specifying mail policy settings that save network resources and improve efficiency by integrating iNotes® with IBM® Connections Files. As an alternative to sending attachments, users can insert links to files that have been uploaded to Files.

Provide iNotes® users the ability to view documents with IBM® Docs. You can allow users to view all supported document file types or you can specify which of the supported file types users are allowed to view with IBM® Docs.

Note: Be aware that, when logging into integrated applications from iNotes® (such as Sametime® or Connections Files) without using single sign-on, the login request inherits the same protocol as the parent iNotes® page. Therefore, it is highly recommended that the iNotes® browser URL always uses https, not just when logging into iNotes®, so that the login to the other application occurs using Secure Sockets Layer.
