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.
