Select any Notes database (email, personal address book, applications etc.) on your workspace, open scanEZ from the Notes client toolbar. Click to expand the Conflicts tree, and scanEZ will automatically scan the current database and find all save or replication conflicts. Here you can examine any conflict and response documents, and see its actual contents and item values.

To open the Conflict Solver you can:

  • Click the Conflict Solver icon on the scanEZ toolbar
  • Use the Conflict Solver button when a category in the Conflicts tree is selected
  • Go to the scanEZ menu, Tools > Conflict Solver

Next, using your mouse, click the corresponding checkboxes to select exactly which field values (from any conflicting document) you want to keep. Avoid comparing the fields manually with the Show only fields with different values button, that way you can focus on the fields that are in conflict. The selections you make are color coded, making it easy to identify the changes you make. Use the Solve button to resolve the conflict, and click Yes to confirm.

On another note: Also, if you set the option Database > Options > Check Document for Conflicts, whenever you select a document, the Conflict Solver icon on the toolbar (roughly 1/4 from the right side of the toolbar) will be active if the current document has a conflict.
