How To Update Strings in the Homepage

View Comments

Happy 2009. Today's blog post is a quick tip on Lotus Connections. Later this week I have a big post coming so I don't want to take too much of your time today.

In Lotus Connections, there are several *.properties files which allow administrators to easily change field labels. For example, you can change "IP Phone Number" to "VoIP Telephone Number". This has become really valuable for a lot of customers because it lets them change the field labels to something their end-users (employees) are used to. This, in turn, helps drive adoption.

The Lotus Connections InfoCenter documents how to make changes to the field labels. However, for some reason the Homepage instructions were left out.

After digging around and asking Adrian Spender, I got the answer:

<WAS_PROFILE_ROOT>/installedApps/<cellname>/Homepage.ear/dboard.common.jar/com/ibm/lotus/connections/dashboard/nls/jsp_resources*.properties.

Enjoy!
