My button is gone!

In my last article we left off discussing how Domino specific design elements do not transfer to the “other” email platform.

For one client we solved this problem by using the web browser.  In a nut shell, we moved the “guts” of the button into an Lotus agent.

We still send out the email, but instead of a Lotus button, we include a HTML URL link.  The user follows this link to a landing page that contains the necessary verbiage and a link/image/button to invoke the “button” agent.

While not the perfect solution, it does provide a temporary solution until the application can be ported to a web application.
