Features

Wander while you work

GroupWise® gives employees robust email, calendaring, task management, and contact management tools wherever they wander. The same goes for admins, who get streamlined and web-based administration to let them monitor, manage, and make things happen on the go.

Social threading

GroupWise takes a new approach to your in-box with social threading. This will help reduce the clutter when you get multiple responses to any email. It’s easy to see what’s new as well as how many unread responses you have too—all from a single glance.

Home view

GroupWise gives you a Home View—a personal productivity dashboard that consolidates the tools and web applications you interact with most for any given aspect of your work. Even better, you can customize it to fit your business needs or let end-users determine their own Home View.

Scheduling

View and manage your appointments, tasks, and reminder notes in a Calendar view. Create multiple calendars or publish personal calendars and free/busy status so that non-GroupWise users can conveniently schedule meetings with you. You can also use GroupWise to schedule appointments and tasks for yourself and others.

Task management

Stay on top of critical action items by creating tasks for yourself—or for anyone else you rely on for completion of a project. Accept or decline the tasks you are sent, and track accepted tasks throughout the lifecycle of the project. Better yet, you can even turn any email into a task by simply dragging it into your Tasklist folder.

Easier attachments

Email can quickly be bogged down with attachments, especially when the same version of a file gets stored again and again. Cut down on the storage needed on your message server through integration with Micro Focus Filr. Now simply email a link that can allow someone to view (or even edit) the file without having to send the file itself.

Contact management

GroupWise gives you easy access to key information for all of the contacts, groups, resources, and organizations you interact with. Add a picture for that business colleague you’re meeting next week, or make note of your boss’s birthday. You can also briefly review the notes from your last client meeting before the next one begins. Best of all, you can access all of this information from your GroupWise address book or Contacts folder.

Secure instant messaging

Communicate in real time with other GroupWise users through Messenger. Messenger allows employees to collaborate wherever they are, regardless of workstation or device. It also provides presence indicators to show when users are online, busy or away from their desks, and you can save important conversations for future reference. Messenger gives you real-time access to your colleagues so you can make decisions and address issues quickly.

Administrative features

Some of the most ardent GroupWise supporters are those who administer it. What do administrators love about the product? First, its rock-solid reliability. GroupWise also offers administrators the flexibility to run on Windows, Linux, or both. And speaking of administrators, an incredibly light administrative footprint means a single administrator can support up to 10,000 GroupWise users.

Dynamic flexibility

What good is power without flexibility? GroupWise gives end users a flexible, dynamic interface that works the way they want to work—and the freedom to make (or change) decisions at will. It also supports the platforms and devices admins need, and even flexes itself to work with Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange.

Built for today

GroupWise provides classic email and calendaring features in a modern and efficient package. It runs on the latest data center technology, supports the latest devices, and sports a user interface that dynamically adjusts to deliver just what you need, just when you need it. Best of all, it keeps your email—and the critical business data that traverses it—firmly within IT's control.

Coexistence

Need to run both GroupWise and Exchange simultaneously in your environment? Don't worry—you can do that with Coexistence Solution for Exchange.
