Adding Pre-Defined Home View Panels

One of the most customizable features of GroupWise 7 is the Home View. Over the next few weeks BrainStorm Cool Tips will show you all the ways you can customize your Home View. This week, learn how to add pre-defined Home View Panels.

By default, GroupWise 7 includes three panels for the Home View: a Calendar panel, an Unread Items panel, and a Checklist panel. GroupWise ships with two other pre-defined panels you can add: a Recent Activity panel that shows all your GroupWise Activity for the past month, and a Summary Calendar panel that lists all the details of your calendar items for the next two weeks.

Follow the steps below to add a pre-defined Home View panel:

  1. Click the arrow at the right of any current panel header.
  2. Select Add Panel from the menu that appears.
  3. Choose a panel from the list of pre-defined available panels.
  4. Click Add.

Check back in two weeks for the next tip in this Home View series: Adding Custom Panels.
