Viral Sametime

Our Sametime pilot is well underway with almost 170 users setup on the Notes 7 integrated client. Once the word was out it spread like wildfire. Even some people that couldn't see the business need for it are now using it and discovering its potential. Adding more people is simple; apply the explicit policy and add the Sametime server to their person document and the next time they start Notes there it is.

We have received the following comments so far:

"What is with the Windows 3.1 interface." (Notes 7 integrated client)
"Are the chats being logged?" (No)
"Is there a Blackberry client?" (Yes, but we need licenses)

My team is using the Notes 8.0.1 integrated client and the Blackberry client so we can show people what is to come. Still waiting on a business decision for that though.

I had to use Chris Linfoot's solution for getting Domino single sign-on to work with the Notes 8.0.1 integrated client. Prior to this the check box would not stay checked. This could be just an upgrade issue with my Notes client. You know how upgrading an administrators Notes client isn't the same as upgrading an end users. We do all kinds of things with ours (beta software, tweeking, playing 'what if' scenarios).
