Verse On-Premises 1.0.9 offers a new calendar event form design. This provides an improved environment for creating and managing calendar events.
The new form opens quickly and is smaller and streamlined. Controls allow users to show just the options that they want to use. This is a preview feature that is off by default. To make this feature available to users, you must add new parameters to the notes.ini Domino server.
While testing this new “feature”, I found the issue that HCL Development will fix in future releases. More on point 2.
There are two options – two parameters:
- To enable the new event form for all users and prevent them from disabling it, add : VOP_GK_FEATURE_168=1
- To keep the new event form off by default but allow users to enable it, add: VOP_PREVIEW_REACT_EVENT_FORM=1
Then, to enable the feature, users select the option New Calendar Event Form in Feature Preview section of Mail and Calendar Settings
If you use this setting (point 2) and the user selects a new form, the form will then appear completely blank when in use. HCL Development is implementing a fix for this issue. The fix will be included in a future release of VOP. For now you to use the workaround which has been described in point 1.
