GW Web should at least have the same functions as Groupwise Webaccess before it is discontinued.

Hello, after the update to Groupwise WEB, many features of the Groupwise webaccess are still missing. Adding contacts, changing contacts, sending screenshots in mailbody, changing appointments, adding appointment participants, adding personal appointments, moving appointments. And many other little things. I do not think that the available function is sufficient to cancel the Groupwise Webaccess, but this has already happened. It gets really bad when customers use the WASP, but there is no plugin in Groupwise Web yet. Retain plugin is also not available for Groupwise Web. Thus, the Groupwise Web Client cannot harvest flowers from users 🙂

You can still install and use legacy webaccess simply by installing from the 18.2.1 GroupWise install media, nothing is stopping you from continuing to use it.  Just development of the product is discontinued so they decided to remove from the 18.3 media to avoid confusion.  Otherwise installation of an 18.2.1 release within the 18.3 would cause unnecessary confusion and support requests asking why webacc on 18.3 is still reporting as 18.2.1.

Hi Dietmar, yes i do the same. The old webaccess has a lot of problem during using, calender ........ The new one has not all feature as the old one. So i offer a old one with bug, and a new one that has only a small function set. It's just very disappointing. Users just don't wait years for a usable solution. I no longer understand the development here.

Hello Laura, the groupwise webaccess has the biggest mistakes in scheduling. It looks like a recurring appointment planning is possible. E.g. Monday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and repeat the appointment on Wednesday and Friday. The result is not correct. If the appointment is then changed, duplicate appointments are created.

Hi,

Yes, the possibility of having the integration of the Retain plugin is very important.
