I needed to create a link from an html document to a Lotus Notes document. It’s years since I had to do that and I immediately ran into issues choosing syntax – such as should I use the fully qualified domain name of the server etc.
I decided instead to open the document in Notes – and choose ‘Edit’/’Copy As’/’Document Link’ from the menu. Pasting that into a document editor gave a result such as..
I was trying too hard. I started to converted this to an href – however It was easier just to paste the url into a Sametime chat which converted it into the perfect format Notes://SERVERNAME/80256A760076FB83/38D46BF5E8F08834852564B500129B2C/EC4650AB44EC5B7B802576C40067E5A9
Then I wrapped that into an href tag and the job was done.
