Do I need to change my current eProductivity setup?

No, not right away. If you're happy with your current setup, you can just continue using it as is.

When you're ready to use the new version of eProductivity, follow the steps below. It's important that you do the following items in the right sequence, so please read all the information carefully.

1. First, download and apply the latest eProductivity software update. This update includes a number of enhancements, and also lets you use the new eProductivity editions. You can download the update here.

2. Second, request a new activation key from eProductivity Service. Due to the changes, all current eProductivity customers who purchased before April 27, 2011 are entitled to a free edition upgrade. This means that you will be issued a new eProductivity activation key that entitles you to an equal or greater feature set than what your current edition enables.

To request your free upgrade:
Please email eProductivity Service and put "Free Edition Upgrade" in the subject. We will send you a new key and provide further details.

Note: For the smoothest transition, it's important that you install the new eProductivity software first and then closely follow that by applying your new key. Otherwise, you may experience one of the following two issues:

  • Your software displays an error when applying a new eProductivity key: This means that your software hasn't been updated, so it doesn't know how to apply the new key.
  • You are locked out of using certain eProductivity features: If you haven't applied your new, upgraded key yet, this could occur. The solution is to apply the new key to unlock the feature set that you have purchased.

How do the new subscription prices affect me?

It depends on your current eProductivity edition. We're providing current subscribers with a free edition upgrade. In most cases that will give you comparable or greater value. Further details will be provided when you request your free upgrade.

Contact eProductivity Service to request your free upgrade


What should I know about eProductivity Integrated?

To distinguish from the new eProductivity Stand-alone app, our original eProductivity app is now called "eProductivity Integrated". This is the eProductivity app that is applied to your regular Lotus Notes mailbox, and is the eProductivity app that you're probably using right now. So there's nothing you need to do beyond being aware of the new naming.
