The best kept secret in Notes Migrator for SharePoint 6.1 is that we added full support for migrating Notes sections. That’s right, I’m talking about the expand/collapse sections with the little triangles in Notes rich text items. When we migrate any rich text that contains such sections, we generate DIV tags for the section headers and section bodies in the resulting HTML.
The problem, of course, is that these tags do not do you much good because, by default, SharePoint does not know how to use them. That’s where Quest Web Parts for SharePoint version 5.7 comes in. If you place our rich text web part on your page, all those migrated sections suddenly start working! Even better, users can continue to create expand/collapse sections in new documents. Won’t your Notes users love that?
See this post on the new version of Quest Web Parts for SharePoint. If you scroll to the bottom, you will see a section “Improved Integration with Notes Migrator for SharePoint” and a really cool video describing what is going on.
Quest Web Parts for SharePoint has always been popular with Notes customers. Features such as multi-level threaded discussions, dynamic navigation areas, and tabbed form layouts has been helping migration teams satisfy the requirements of their migrated Notes applications (at a drastically lower cost than hand-coding those features) for years now. Of course it is not just for migrated Notes apps, but is really useful of many other SharePoint development scenarios.
