Adding The Sametime Icon To The Bookmark Bar

R5.02 integrates SameTime features in the Notes client. However, when upgrading
from R5.0 or R5.01 to R5.02, the SameTime Connect icon is not added to the
bookmark bar.
R5.02 integrates SameTime features in the Notes client. However, when upgrading
from R5.0 or R5.01 to R5.02, the SameTime Connect icon is not added to the
bookmark bar. Lotus' unsatisfactory solution has been to simply delete your
bookmark.nsf file and restart the client. This adds the SameTime Connect icon,
but means that you lose all of your bookmarks. The IBM Redbook,"Lotus Notes and
Domino Take Center Stage..." has a development solution, but is also more
complicated than necessary. My simple solution was:

1. Upgrade the Notes client
2. Open the Bookmark.ntf file
3. Open the Outline titled "UserBookmarkOrder"
4. Copy the "Sametime Connect" outline entry
5. Open your Bookmark.nsf file
6. Open the Outline titled "UserBookmarkOrder"
7. Paste the "Sametime Connect" outline entry.
8. Restart the Notes Client

Of course, this is an easy solution for a single user or for a few users, but
would not be very efficient for a large number of users. Even so, it may still
be better than deleting bookmark.nsf.
