FT Search Manager

Effective Searching for IBM Notes


The FT Search Manager is a dedicated IBM Notes search tool that allows users to search multiple Notes databases (Mail & Archives, Chats, Applications, Quickr etc) and File Systems simultaneously.

This provides easy navigation through the vast amounts of data that can accumulate in a Notes environment over time.

Searching can be performed from a Notes Client, iNotes Client (Full or Mobile), 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 IBM Quickr.

Search functionality can be easily integrated into the Notes Client (via Mail Integration, Actions, Bookmarks, Toolbar Icons etc) or Applications & Websites.

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

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

FT Search Manager is really the "killer app" we have been searching for....I found nothing that can compare with FT Search Manager's flexibility, ease of use, stability, and quality of results.
