This ability would really be helpful. I have users with random folders where the display format changed after upgrading to GroupWise 18; one guy has over 100 folders and at least 1/3 now display in a new format with message preview, group labels and summary format (which he hates). He (the owner of the company) is annoyed that he has to manually fix all his folders. Even if this ability were only a gwcheck special option, it would be better than no ability at all to do this. Of course having it user-facing would be better, maybe set the properties of a top-level folder (which could be the Mailbox or Cabinet itself), then a right-click menu option to apply the settings to all sub-folders.

A person using a lot of folders and for example based on clients regulary making new folders is realy suffering of this limitation. In fact the possibillity to change the (wrong) default setting should be enoughor indeed "for all subfolders "

We also need this feature to deploy Groupwise 18. Default Folder Setting in Option and Settings to all Subfolders.

The new GW2018 is awful!!! We need a way to push the 2018 client and still have it look like GW 2014

We are facing this with multiple customers, and don't think this is user friendly at all - users should have the option to choose the layout of all folders in one go. Thanks Volkmar

i agree 100 %! including a possibility to set the default column order back to name/subject/date instead of gw18-default subject/name/date...
