SWING Seascape for Notes

Frequently Asked Questions

Seascape for Notes provides two different types of export: the Full Archive and the Plain Archive. You need to choose the type of your archive and follow these steps.

No. The Seascape archive is platform independent. It is a self-contained set of standard format files such as PDF, JSON and HTML, therefore you only need a web browser to view your data.

No, you do not need a server. You can save the export to your local folder, or a shared folder, and then open the index.html file in a web browser. Note that saving the archive on an intranet web server is a common practice because doing so allows multiple users to access archived data.

Yes. When you click on a document link in the exported PDF, the linked PDF file will open automatically (assuming that both the source and the linked Notes document have been exported to PDF).

Yes, but your version of PDF Converter must be 6.02 or higher; otherwise, both products may malfunction due to resource conflicts.

Readers and Authors fields are preserved as metadata, but access permissions are not currently implemented in the Seascape Viewer. Commonly, administrators use folder-level permissions to control user access to individual archives on the web server.

Yes, you can install and use Seascape locally on the Notes client. The databases being processed can reside either on the same workstation or on any accessible Domino server.

Yes, you can use the search box to find a particular view entry. You can also sort the documents using any of the view columns.

You can upload exported documents and metadata into your Microsoft SharePoint / Office 365 library in just a few easy steps.

If any of the Notes documents were not processed during the first run, they will be converted to PDF/JSON files and added to the archive normally. The Seascape document views will also be recreated to include the new entries. As for the Notes documents that were already processed during the previous run, they will not be processed again, thus saving on processing time.

Currently, the metadata section can only be shown if the Seascape archive is:
a) hosted on a web server (works with any browser); or
b) stored in a file system folder, and viewed in Mozilla Firefox.
