How can I switch to a different User ID for a different location?

You can specify a different User ID file that IBM® Notes® should use for a location. For example, if you sometimes travel to a different office with Notes® on a laptop that you connect to the LAN there, create a Location document that switches to an ID authorized for servers at that office.


  1. On any computer with single-user Notes® installed, insert a flash drive with your ID file, or move your ID to the hard disk drive.
  2. Click File > Locations > Manage Locations.
  3. Select the location and click Edit.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the User ID to switch to field, specify a User ID file (you can click the search icon to browse the operating system).
  6. Click OK.
