View a URL when selecting a folder?

Hello all,

My company has an existing product that provides Outlook integration into a third party mail repository. We have an existing client for our other services that is interested if we can replicate our Outlook client functionality for Groupwise. They are version 7 now, but have plans for version 8 within 6 months.

Most of the Outlook/Exchange methdologies we use are apparent via the published API's. However, there is one item we use regularly that I've yet to find a equivalent of in Groupwise.

In Outlook each individual folder has a Folder Home Page URL property, with a second switch on/off property for showing that Home Page URL. When the URL is filled in and the switch is turned on, the user is shown a browser window that directs to the URL rather than the normal Outlook message window. The folder essentially becomes a Web Shortcut.

Is there any type of equivalent methodology in Groupwise 7 or 8 that could be used? In my research thus far I haven't found anything, though the possiblity of using the version 8 RSS feed does exist.

Re: View a URL when selecting a folder?

I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.
In 8.0, the GWClient has the concept of a panel view.
You can define a panel to have a web URL.
When you display that panel, the web page is shown
in that panel. The panel is a browser window.

How is that different than what you are doing?

If that is what you want to do. The setting, creation,
modifying, deleting of panels is available with SOAP
but not the Object API. There is no plan to offer
that ability in the Object API.
