Drag n Drop Sidebar Widget for Lotus Notes

Here is a new Openntf.org project that might be worth a look. A project that is run by my colleague Michael Nielsen.
It is a Drag n Drop Sidebar Widget for the Lotus Notes Client.
When it is installed, you can drag documents from a Lotus Notes database and drop them on to targets that are displayed in the Widget.
When you drop documents on the target in the Widget there are some configurable options that control what will happen. For instance you can configure the Widget to copy the dropped documents to the database-target and then immidiately run an agent on the copies.
It is a really cool widget with a lot of potential.

Here is a 5-minute Video I made to show what it can do. HD and Full Screen-viewing is suggested to get the best feel for what it does.

Added on January 11th: Download the Drop Target Database used in the demo.

At Convergens we have used the widget for Case Management, where we let end users drag emails to the Case Management system, dropping them on relevant Cases, letting the user easily relate important emails to Cases.
Here is a YouTube Video that shows the functionality. The presenter speaks Danish, but if you ignore the sound and move forward to about 0m:50secs you can see the Widget in action.
