GroupWise: Features You Lose!

0 Likes
Novell recently published a 'Top Ten Features Users Lose If They Move' flyer that spells out just a few of the things GroupWise users love about Novell GroupWise!

You can access the flyer here.

The document lists the following features:

  1. Superior message tracking

  • Silent message retraction

  • Native attachment viewing

  • Recurring appointment flexibility

  • Managing group tasks

  • User-controlled proxy rights

  • Enhanced busy search

  • Simpler folder sharing

  • Calendar view of future tasks

  • Managing sent appointments and calendar items


Of course, the flyer goes into more detail on each of these items and provides explanations. There were many features and capabilities to choose from, but these are the ones chosen for this flyer.

What would you miss?


So - now that I have your brainstorming attention - what are those things that you use every day in the GroupWise product that you simply could not live without?

Personally, I have a long list of things that are leveraged in GroupWise and that are customized to a particular way of working - MINE!! I have customized the highly productive habitat to manage my workload, schedule, and information. GroupWise is not only my calendar, task list, contact manager, and principal communication mechanism, but GroupWise is also my information storage and recall nerve center.

Most work days start and end with GroupWise!

Share what features you would miss or that you use the most!!

  • Yep, this is over a year late. But consider its punctuality an indicator.

    My school uses GW and all of the students think it is awful. Mind you few of them are computer science majors, nor am I, however many of the above comments are accurate regarding incompatibility with various devices.

    I've been scouring the internet with queries on how to either install a GW client on my Mac or access it through Outlook for Mac. No luck yet. If either of these options exist in useable versions, their existence needs to be more obvious, as does the proper sequence for installing and using them.

    The kicker? My school charges $40k per year, and we get the poor service from GW, but we STILL have to pay for iOS apps for email!
