Targeted Searching for IBM Notes

FT Search Manager

The FT Search Manager is an IBM Notes search tool that allows any user to search all of their favourite Notes databases (e.g. Mail & Archives, Chats, Applications, Quickr etc) and File Systems simultaneously.

Searching can be performed from a Notes Client, Browser or Web Service, installed on a server, and/or replicated locally. The databases being searched can be anywhere.

Users can search Notes Mail & Archives, Sametime Chats, File Systems, Domain Indexes, Mail Journals, custom Notes Applications, Websites and Quickr, and all at the same time.

Search functionality can be easily integrated into the Notes Client (via Mail Integration, Actions, Bookmarks, Toolbar Icons, Widgets etc) or Applications & Websites via design integration, such as frames & iframes.

Results display the Search phrases in the context of the document, making it easy to locate target data, and users can easily refine, resort or export results.

You can also use the tool as part of your migration strategy, allowing users to export mail data themselves, on demand, to PST, PDF, HTML or EML. For more information, please see our Export Search page.
