Sending an item using From instead of Proxy

In the never-ending journey to make your life a little easier, we have a quick tip to help you along your way. The Proxy tool within GroupWise is very useful and allows a single user access to multiple users' accounts. However, it is not always necessary to be in another user's account to send an item from that account. The From option within GroupWise can help you accomplish sending an item from any proxy account with ease.

How to send an item using From instead of Proxy

  1. Create a new item from the Main Window.

  2. Click From: while in the new window.

  3. From the drop down menu choose from what account you will send the item.

  4. Populate the remaining fields and click Send.

That's all. Not too complicated but very useful as you save time from switching back and forth between different user accounts.
