IBM Traveler for IBM i

Tab navigation

IBM Traveler is a mobile application that provides two-way, over-the-air synchronization of email and PIM data between IBM Domino® servers and wireless hand held devices. IBM Traveler synchronizes e-mail, calendar and contacts data, between the server and the device, in real time. It is convenient and easy to install for administrators and end users. And it's a FREE mobile option for Domino clients that allow them to build on their existing Domino infrastructure and extend their messaging and collaboration environment to the mobile phones.

IBM i is an ideal platform for Traveler — with an easy-to-manage infrastructure and low total cost of ownership. It shields the typical business user from worry about technical issues. The unique integrated architecture of IBM i delivers proven reliability, high availability and powerful single-footprint scalability to mid-market companies, so you can focus on your business rather than technology.

Marking IBM Verse contacts as Favorites

You can now designate a contact as a Favorite when using the IBM Verse server. This can be done through the long-press or swipe menus of a contact in the list of contacts, or from the contact editor. Favorite contacts have a blue star by the contact name.

The At-Glance widget displays when receiving new mail from "Important to me" contacts

When IBM Notes Traveler is connected to an IBM Verse environment, it is now able to sync your Verse "Important to me" contacts. Mail from these contacts can be accessed from the Important to Me bar in the widget. If you are not connected to a Verse environment, your "Important to me" contacts are only stored on the device and are not synced.

Notes:

Actions menu on Android clients

IBM Traveler for Android now includes a new "Actions" application for displaying Action Items. Action Items are created from sent or received mail. You can mark mail as an item that you need to take action on and provide a date by which it needs to be done. You can also mark sent mail as an item that you are waiting for a response on and provide a due date. The recipient is not notified that you have marked the item as an Action Item or provided the due date.
