Open Season on Domino.Doc to Quickr Conversions

In the last 48 hours I have written documents/SOW for 4 migrations so if you have Domino.Doc and fear it, let me know and we will take care of it for you, it can be done faster than you can imagine.

As one of the few Business Partners entrusted with the code to handle these conversions I wanted to provide a few items to help you plan for the migration to Quickr.

1) In order for the tool to work, you MUST be using Domino.Doc/LDDM versions 6.5.1 or 7.0, it doesn't matter what Domino version. So if you are NOT using these versions, we will first have to upgarde you to them.

2) The Quickr server must be running 8.2 on top of Domino 8.5 and we need the Notes 8.5 client to manage the task as well running the desktop enabler.

For more, you can read the Redbook, Self Assessment and Strategy Guide for Migrating from Domino Document Manager

The MOST Common question asked?
1) What version of Domino.Doc am I running?
Not as easy as Quickr to find out. But if you open your main file cabinet/library of Domino.Doc in a browser and click on the Lotus/LDDM/Domino.Doc logo in the upper left corner you will get a pop up telling you which version and what date it came out.

Of course you could also go straight to the url which would look like this:
http://servername.com/domdoc/yourdocLibraryLib.nsf/SysAdmin/AboutBox?OpenDocument
Domino.doc version information looks like this
2) What version of Quickr am I running?
This is much easier. You can either look at your server console when http starts or view the page source of any Quickr website and in the first few lines you will see this:

<-- Copyright (c) IBM Corporation 1987, 2008. All Rights Reserved. -->
<-- IBM LOTUS QUICKR VERSION: 810007.004 | Built On Domino: Build V801_02072008-->
<-- IBM LOTUS QUICKR VERSION: 810007.004 | Release: 8,1,0,7 | Build: QRD8.1.0.7-004c -->

And this server has not been updated yet to 8.2 as one can plainly see.
