Panagenda MarvelClient allows administrators to manage HCL Nomad clients by defining their own settings. MarvelClient is provided with all installations of HCL Nomad starting with version 1.0.4.
HCL has integrated MarvelClient into Nomad, their new Notes client for mobile devices. Manage Notes clients on tablets and phones right out of the box – for free!
MarvelClient allows administrators to:
Centrally manage every aspect of Nomad – including Recent Apps, local replicas, Location/Connection documents, and more – without end-user interaction.
Ensure Nomad clients are properly set up following initial installation. End-users can be productive immediately without having to think about settings or how to find their Notes applications.
Apply settings consistantly, making sure Nomad stays configured correctly – a simple restart of the app automatically fixes mis-configurations without the need for the help desk to get involved.
Continuously collect detailed information about all aspects of deployed Nomad installations, operating systems, and hardware to further administrative analytics.
Configuring MarvelClient on Nomad clients
MarvelClient does not require any manual configuration if there is a MarvelClient Config database at one of the default Domino paths. Each time HCL Nomad is started, MarvelClient automatically applies any new configurations after the user login process.
Disabling MarvelClient on Nomad clients
MarvelClient on HCL Nomad can be disabled. When not in use a MarvelClient on your Domino server, MarvelClient will not perform actions to configure your HCL Nomad client. There is no need to disable MarvelClient. If you are using MarvelClient and want to disable it for HCL Nomad, use one of the options:
If you use Desktop Policy Custom settings, set the notes.ini NOM_MC_DISABLE=1 parameter. This will disable the MarvelClient’s configurations from being applied to the Nomad client after the user enters their credentials during setup.
If you use an MDM in your mobile environment, navigate to HCL Nomad’s AppConfig definition to set the AppConfig variable enableMarvelClient to false.

The beginning of September is really hectic. HCL is rolling out news with us starting with Beta V11, FP3 for V10.0.1, Verse On-Premises 1.0.8 and Domino App Dev Pack 1.0.2.
In addition, we are still faced with various problems related to the products transer from IBM to HCL.
The positive thing about all of this is that something is happening and HCL has been keeping the promised deadlines and news ahead of time. We are still waiting for the Beta Nomad for Android. But I think we have enough toys.

We have completed the first month when HCL fully took over from IBM Collaboration software (Domino, Notes, Sametime, Connections …..). Information comes from all sides, we gain access to individual systems.
Everything is not going smoothly, but from my own experience I know that the people of each teams are trying to help. I wish everything was successful and thanks to all HCL people and customers for patience.
We get a lot of information, which is gradually updated, so I tried to prepare some interesting sources.

Enhancements to the calendar event design preview in 1.0.8 IBM Verse 1.0.8 provides the following enhancements to the calendar event design preview feature.
See names in your native language In Verse 1.0.8, in work environments that use internationally-recognized names, your administrator may allow you to see names in their native languages and character sets. These are known as alternate names.
See your archived mail In Verse 1.0.8, if you archive your mail to an archive database on a server using another client such as iNotes, or if your administrator archives your mail on a server for you, you can now open the archive mail file from the folder panel to see the archived messages.
More support for encrypted meeting notifications There is additional support for encrypting meeting invitations and responses.
Font sizes are consistent with Notes and iNotes In Verse 1.0.8, the font size is the same as the font size in Notes and iNotes. For example, Arial 14 is rendered the same size in Verse, Notes, and iNotes. Previously, the Verse font size was smaller.
Improved web browser experience enabled by default An improved experience for users who access Verse from browsers on mobile devices is now enabled automatically.
New password and Notes ID features In Verse 1.0.8, you can change the password that you use to log in to Verse, change your Notes ID password, and manage your Notes ID.
Server support for IBM i Verse is now supported on a Domino 10.0.1 server running on IBM i version V7R2 or V7R3.
