Adding a Quickr place to your connectors through a link

One huge enhancement from Quickplace to Quickr is the availability of the Quickr REST API and the Quickr connectors that take advantage of it. The connectors allow you to access files stored in Quickr using Explorer, MS Office, Lotus Symphony, Lotus Notes or Sametime. Before you can use a place you need to add it to the connector. While there is a simple GUI for that, it is inconvenient for new places. Luckily there is a simple way to get around it. I routinely add a link page to my Quickr places (in the sidebar) that points to:
quickr://name-of-your-quickr-server/library/[@name-of-your-quickr-place /@RMain.nsf] (The [ and @ and ] are part of the URL, and no spaces).
And voila the place is added to your place configuration.
