Forward as link

We all often forward each other items from the applications by selecting "Actions" ---> "Forward."

We all often forward each other items from the applications by selecting "Actions" ---> "Forward." This copies the entire selected document into a Memo document that can then be sent. Obviously, this option is slow and catches a lot of disk space to you and to your recipient's mail DB.

Here is a better solution: "Forward As Link." This will create a new mail memo where a link plus the selected document's subject are already embedded into the new Memo Body.

Create an Agent that runs on selected docs:

Sub Initialize
     Dim session As New NotesSession
     Dim db,maildb As NotesDatabase
     Dim collection As NotesDocumentCollection
     Dim doc As NotesDocument
     Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
     Set collection = db.UnprocessedDocuments
     For i = 1 To collection.Count
          Set doc = collection.GetNthDocument( i )
     Const NotesMacro$ = "@MailDbName"
     result = Evaluate(NotesMacro$, doc)
     Set maildb=Session.GetDatabase( result(0), result(1) )     
     Set mailDoc = maildb.CreateDocument
     Set rtitem = New NotesRichTextItem(mailDoc, "Body")
     Call rtitem.AddNewLine(2)     
     Call rtitem.Appendtext(doc.index(0) + " ------->")
     Call rtitem.AppendDocLink (doc,"Goto RQ")
     Call rtitem.Appendtext(+"("+doc.subject(0)+")")
     Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
     Dim maildocui As NotesUIDocument
     Set maildocui=workspace.EditDocument( True,mailDoc, False )
End Sub
