Preparing for using widgets in the Notes® client

Perform these steps to start the Notes® client, display the My Widgets sidebar panel, and ensure that the catalog server and catalog name preferences are correct.


  1. Start Notes® and open the Widgets preference panel by clicking File > Preferences > Widgets.
  2. Enable the Show Widgets Toolbar and the My Widgets sidebar panel option (this option is typically disabled by default when not using policies).

    If you specified policy settings for the catalog earlier, they will be visible on this preference panel with the following values:

    Catalog server --

    Catalog name -- toolbox.nsf

    Catalog categories to install -- (leave this setting as is for now)

  3. Click OK to display the My Widgets sidebar panel and toolbar and connect to the widgets catalog.
