Dynamic view filtering in Notes

There’s been one question that has been asked over and over again by Notes developers: "How can I parameterise a Notes view selection?" The answer was always "You can’t" because it is the server that maintains the view, and at the time the server does the view, there’s no opportunity to customise a view for one particular user.

A step-by-step guide to installing the Notes 7.0 client
