Pros: The possibility to export not only notes databases but also mailboxes. Friendly user interface. Catalog organization and facility to navigate between them.

Cons: Export log file that in my opinion should be more complete, mainly including some statistics like amount of documents extracted, number of errors. The application (nsf) should include a way to configure the export layout (some css features). What I mean is, before extracting, there would be a configuration screen to define the color of web screens, letter font and color, possibility to include company logo, among other features.

Overall: Since my company is in process to migrate from Lotus Notes to Office 365 this is a good tool for the archiving old data and will allow us to access it without the need of a Notes Client.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Seascape tool. Fyi we have since both improved the export log feature (which now shows much more useful information) and added the ability to manage CSS customization (after multiple archives are generated, the archive colors and other style elements can be modified from a central CSS file).

Pros: Very simple to learn and use out of the box. Dealt with complex notes templates. Capability to be hosted on SharePoint. Configurable settings for attachments sizes. PDF export contains links to attachements.

Cons: Only works on converting data from Lotus Notes.

Overall: For us the ability to host the HTML export on SharePoint online was a massive bonus. Seascape has a great feature for importing an export into SharePoint but due to the large number of databases and complexity and amount of metadata we needed to keep, this would have extended our project for archive data considerably and would also require a SharePoint developer.

With the ability to convert the export to run an a web server that allowed us to host the content on SharePoint giving us the ability to utilise the SharePoint online search capability and present the data to the user in a user friendly manner.

Support and feature updates were quick and very responsive. Fantastic value for money....

Thank you for your review. Using Mozilla Firefox is recommended when viewing Seascape archives saved on a local workstation. Other browsers will also work, but with some minor limitations. On the other hand if the archives are deployed from a web server, then any browser can be used without any limitations.

Pros: Ease of use

Easy and simple configuration

Export of view categories

Cons: Metadata not sorted

"Document has too many paragraphs" error when exporting large views

No email notifications on completion of an archive or if there are errors

Overall: As part of the decommission of Lotus Notes in the company the data needs to be exported and accessible.

There's 30+ databases and around 2 million documents across all the databases.

Pros: It takes a Lotus Notes database and transitions it to a browser based archive that we can publish to the server for secure access.

Cons: The original set up was confusing, basically because we wanted to run it on the server. Once I switched to using a lotus notes client we didn't have any issues.

Overall: Really, really great product. I am impressed with and we in IT are thrilled with the results. The users find it really easy to use and it maintains all the links, attachments and such. Great useable archive tool for us.

Thanks for your review. We did have some teething issues with server side exports early on but those have been resolved fully since then.
