Part of an ongoing series about GroupWise 2012. You may have read my post about recurring appointments being improved in the GroupWise 2012 Client. It is a pretty basic, intuitive change, but does make recurring appointments much easier to schedule. I thought I'd show you how it has been improved with GroupWise 2012 WebAccess. Take a look at the screenshots below. The options are very similar as what is provided in the client. The only thing not included in WebAccess [...]

By |2016-12-22T14:36:30-07:00December 14th, 2011|GroupWise 2012|

Part of an ongoing series about GroupWise 2012. Have you ever tried to schedule a recurring appointment in GroupWise 8? It is a weird interface. And the entire time you're trying to schedule this recurring meeting, you are saying to yourself, "It shouldn't be this hard to schedule a meeting the second Tuesday of every month at 9am." True. It shouldn't be. With GroupWise 2012, Novell has added an additional option for scheduling recurring appointments that makes this much more [...]

GroupWise 2012 New Feature: Shared Folder Tree

By |2016-12-22T14:36:30-07:00December 12th, 2011|GroupWise 2012|

Part of an ongoing series about GroupWise 2012. One of my favorite new features of GroupWise 2012 is the Shared Folder Tree.  It essentially allows you to share an entire folder and sub-folder structure all the while keeping the hierarchy in tact. This is a great improvement and will make sharing folders easier to manage and the overall process more efficient. In GroupWise 8 and previous versions, all folders had to be shared individually. You could certainly share a subfolder, but it was [...]

5 Reasons Why Social Media and Instant Messaging Can't Replace Email

By |2016-12-22T14:36:31-07:00December 8th, 2011|Uncategorized|

There have been a few news stories recently about a French IT company called Atos that has announced their intention to replace email with Social Networking and Instant Messaging over the next few years. The company has 74,000 users and claims that most of the current email is either worthless or it is spam. Whether the company pulls it off is yet to be seen, and some people may argue that it is simply a publicity stunt (I'm one of [...]

Multi-User Calendar added for GroupWise 2012

By |2012-01-11T09:17:50-07:00December 7th, 2011|GroupWise 2012|

Part of an ongoing series about GroupWise 2012. With GroupWise 2012, Novell has introduced an additional calendar view. The desire here was to be able to show a day, week, or month, with multiple users' calendars. Some people could care less about this view, but I really like it. With GroupWise 8, you could show different users day calendars side-by-side. But if you wanted to show the same users calendars for the entire week, you would have to switch between [...]

Part of an ongoing series about GroupWise 2012. Okay, I'll admit it. I didn't think the Skype integration with GroupWise 2012 was that big of a deal. Yes, I do use Skype quite a bit. Along with GroupWise and my cell phone, it is one of my primary mediums of communication. I use it primarily for IM and conference calls with the rest of our MHC team. For a while, I even used Skype in place of my cell phone [...]
