One of the strength of ExtraFax is that it allows you to plug your own contact databases which can be
used for address book lookup for the print-to-fax driver. In order to achieve this result, you need to do the
- You have to add your contact database(s) to the NAMES= list in NOTES.INI
- If you change the server NOTES.INI, it will be accessible by all users, if you change the workstation one, only user on that workstation will be able to see it.
- Create a view called "($PeopleGroupsFlat)" in the contact database(s).
The column definition for this view must observe the following rules :
To summerize, column 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 are mandatory and it must contain valid contents.
|1||The icon which indicate whether this entry is a person entry or a group entry. This is not used by the print-to-fax driver. You can put anything you like.|
|2||This displayed name. |
|3||The email address. This is the entry that would be picked up to put in the To/Cc/Bcc fields. For fax, it should be of the form|
receiver@fax-number@faxdomain. You can skip the domain and the print-to-fax driver will append a default one. However, Notes default address book lookup will not do this. So you have to decide if you want to put the domain in.
|4||The name of this entry. If the email address field is empty, this one would be used instead as the email address. However, we would recommend use the email column.|
|5||Type. This is important. It must be either 'Person' or 'Group'. The print-to-fax driver use this to determine if it should display it under the group list or the person list|
|6||Public key. this column is not used.|
|7||'fax mail' address.|
For people customizing the standard NAB, you can add the following formula in the column formula definition:
@If(@Trim(OfficeFAXPhoneNumber) != ""; OfficeFAXPhoneNumber; HomeFAXPhoneNumber)
In this way, it will pick up either the Office fax number or Home fax number from the Person document.
The title must be 'FaxAddr'.
