InfoStore (Freeware)

Table of Contents

Welcome to madicon InfoStore!

Every active IT user collects or generates any amount of "information" himself in the course of time. Whether this is text information, graphics, Internet downloads or the like is irrelevant.
The problem is basically "finding" a certain piece of information at a later time (...hmmm, somewhere I had this file stored?).
Here HCL Notes/Domino with its document-oriented database structure (you can store pretty much anything in Notes) offers an ideal starting platform. What is still missing is a suitable application that enables structured storage of your information.
This application exists: madicon InfoStore - your second brain!


  • Complete functionality in a single .NSF file
  • Classification of the created documents through the (adaptive) Categories and Sub Categories fields. This allows easy retrieval of the documents through a categorized view.
  • Assignment of Tags for easier retrieval of documents in the context of a full-text search.
  • Clear display of the saved documents in different views sorted by Category, Category/Modification, Tags, Title, Attachments, Modification, Document Size and Creator. Display of the number and size of the file attachments saved in the documents in the views.
  • Storage of any information accepted by Notes (texts, tables, graphics, embedded objects, file attachments) in the documents.
  • Direct overview of file attachments (summary with number and size sum of files or detailed overview with file name and size) in the open document.
  • Document history with the last 10 modification times and person who made the changes.
  • Creation of a mail with automatic generation of the document link - so other people can be easily informed about new/changed documents.
  • Creation of a mail with complete content from the Title and Content fields.
  • Import of mails from the own or foreign (access ensured) mailboxes.
  • Additional authors, read access restriction and content encryption can be specified per document.
  • Print preview
  • Copy DocLink or Notes-URL to clipboard
  • Manual (Online + PDF)
