During a 1,800 user rollout of R5 we used a great article written by Damien Katz on Notes.net. It explains how
to customize an end users welcome page. This worked very well until we wanted to update current r5 users with the custom template we created. Layout of customization. Create custom Database (MyWelcome.nsf) with a custom frameset on a server which all end-users have access to. The custom frameset we used points to the users own mail file, calendar, etc... In the database properties of MyWelcome.nsf (on your server) make your custom frameset launch automatically. Here is where we ran into trouble. Pointing the default bookmark.ntf frameset (locally resides on everyones machine) at our custom db worked when it replaced the bookmark.ntf during a fresh install (See posts on copyfile.txt). I did not work owhen we replaced bookmark.ntf on R5 client already installed. Solution: enter your custom DB on the server select edit => copy as link => database link. Go to bookmark.ntf and paste into the about document. Set bookmark.ntf database properties to launch 1st doclink in the about document. Viola! P.S. whenever replacing bookmark.ntf locally: 1. delete bookmark.ntf and bookmark.nsf. 2. Copy in custom bookmark.ntf. 3. Restart client and bookmark.nsf is rebuilt.
