In Nomad web, there's no Browse button like notes client. Need this button.

In normal Notes client, there's a Browse button and you can select any database from the filesystem (or even network share). In Nomad, there's no Browse button.

    This is not something we are planning to do for a few of reasons.

    If you do a File Open and look at the local file system in the Nomad Sandbox, then you are 'uploading' that nsf file to browser pseudo file system so that the Nomad client can see it and open it. Just like having a local replica from a Domino server.

    This is not the same as opening a file from Notes in a local file system as there is no mechanism available to Nomad to be able to write changes back to the local file system. The Browser is secure and sandboxed, so we don't have the ability to read and write from Nomad to the local file system of the host machine.

    Also this would not lead to any portability for the client. If you've uploaded your nsf to browser A, then you wanted to access this database/application from browser B or a mobile device, it would not be available.

    Marking as 'No plans to implement'.

    Yes, it would be great to have a possibility to open any NSF file from anywhere of the local filesystem - e.g. some old mail archives etc.
