outlook contacts and calendar into groupwise

Hi,

we have two users who so far insisted on keeping their contacts and calendar in Outlook.

They would now like to move the contacts and the calendar into Groupwise and manage them via the GRoupwise 2014 client.

Are there any tools available with which we can import pst files into Groupwise 2014?

Thanks a lot.

I'm not aware of any, but I haven't had the need to use anything other
than what is available in the client. Someone else may have some tool
suggestions. However...
For contacts, you could transfer using vcf or csv files.
For calendar, you could transfer using ics.

Re: outlook contacts and calendar into groupwise

Hi Damion

I had to migrate several Outlook Mailboxes to GroupWise some months ago.
Tested and used 3 tools:
Transend Migrator (www.trancend.com)
Kernel OST to PST Migrator (if no PST available) (http://www.Lepide.com)
Advansys PersonalOutlookMigrationPack
(https://www.advansyscorp.com/products/extend/fv-solutions/fvsolutions-download/),
with Outlook 2007, GW 7.0.4

I have seen several issues on them:
Appointments:
- Recurring appointments (all, limited transfer)
- private flag is not migrated to GW (Transend)

Contacts:
- Birthday's Year is not migrated (I mean on Advansys and Transend)

As I remember, for the real migration, I took Advansys-Tool for
appointments/mails
and for contacts I installed GW 7.0.4 and Oulook on same VM, "bound" a copy
of PST and GW-Mapi at Outlook 2007, so that I have seen both contatcs folder
and then I moved the contacts from Outlook to GW-Mapi Folder

Hope this helps
Markus

I've always used the Personal Outlook Migration Pack from Advansys to do this, never really had any huge issues.
