Making the installation of SNAPPS Templates much Quickr

Off
Strongback Consulting

For anyone using Lotus Quickr (formerly Quickplace), the guys at SNAPPS have created some freely available templates for use. Whenever I install Quickr for a customer I often install these templates with the base installation as a bonus.
After you’ve installed something repeatedly, you often think ‘hey.. I could script that!’. And so I did. You don’t have the full flexibility of scripting in a Domino environment, but there are quite few things that you can do in a batch/shell script by calling the specific items in the Domino program directory. Now, this part is really just for upgrading or registering the newly created SNAPPS templates. My step just speeds up the command line portion of it and allows you to run a single batch file instead of 16+ commands. This is for Windows only, but a shell script is just a AWK away. If you have more fancy things to add to the script, please leave a comment.

Follow all the instructions from the SNAPPS team for the initial download and setup of the QEngine and QContacts applications, and copying the other templates into your LotusQuickr directory. Then, copy the following into a batch file and insert into your Domino program directory. Then at step 3 of installing a single template, execute the batch file. This will install and register all the SNAPPS templates.

Then you can use the Domino Admin console to add owners to all the places at once.
