Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To qualify this: I am not sure quite how you would do this, only that I am pretty sure it can be done (depending on your version of Notes).

I would suggest not trying to give anyone access to make modifications directly in your Directory. This is the definition of “unintended consequences,” as I can’t think of any way you could allow a user the ability to modify only one page in a form in a database. That’s not the way Domino Databases work.

However, you could create a form that would trigger an agent to update the information you want them to be able to update. The receptionists put the information into the form; the agent operates behind the scenes, much like Admin-P works to update a user after a name or OU change. They can make the modifications you want them to make without having, themselves, the ability to monkey with anything else.

Does this make sense?

    I agree with jlnewmark's response. Creating a separate form and having an agent do the work is a smart solution.

    Thank you very much for your replies. That's what I thought too but I was wondering if a role like user modifier (but more restrictive) would work. The plan is to delete our company phone directory and put all the info in the Domino Address Book to synch it with Active Directory and other applications like Remedy etc... I think we will have to continu to use the phone directory and from this push the info to the Domino Directory and synch AD afterward. If you have some other ideas... don't hesitate and again, thanks for your quick replies !!!

    I think people with designing knowldege can sort this out. You can work this out by creating some Author's field on the database and create a role on the database ACL. Adding the receipnist name on the author field can help. I am sorry, if I were wrong here
