How to export Lotus Notes databases

How can I export Lotus Notes databases?

SWING Seascape for Notes is a Lotus Notes database export tool that provides two different types of export: the Full Archive and the Plain Archive.

The Full Archive converts the Notes databases to a browsable collection of PDF documents and HTML/JSON views that mirror the Notes views. The resulting archive doesn’t require any installation. It is highly portable and can be hosted locally or on a web server. The Plain Archive exports Notes documents as PDFs in a folder structure, with sidecar XML files to store your metadata.

Perform the following steps to export Lotus Notes databases:

  1. Choose the type of your archive.
  2. On the export page, select one or more Lotus Notes databases to be exported, select the export settings, and select the destination folder.
  3. After you have selected your export options click Next, review the export summary info, and if everything’s OK, click Start export now in order to initiate the export.
  4. Once the export is completed, you can open the browser (for Full Archive) or the destination folder (for Plain Archive).

For any of these options, you only need a web browser or a PDF viewer to access your extracted Notes data—nothing else!

Finally, you can upload exported documents and metadata into your Microsoft SharePoint list or library in just a few easy steps.
