You may have noticed that when you use the Home View in GroupWise 7, you somehow don't organize or clean up your mailbox quite as often. It might be because you can hide your folder list or because you only view your unread messages, or it might be because you don't know that you can easily move your items without ever seeing your folder list by dragging items directly to the Navigation bar.

Follow the steps below to drag items to the folders represented on your Navigation bar:

  1. Add the folders to your Navigation bar that you want to drag items to. (To set aside items to be filed later, create a "Cabinet" tab linked to your cabinet.)
  2. Click any item in your mailbox, calendar, or other folders to select it. Ctrl + click or Shift + click to select several items at once.
  3. Drag the selected item(s) to the Navigation bar tab of your choice.

(Click the play button below to see a flash demonstration of this tip.)

If you choose to drag all the items you want to file to your Cabinet tab, simply click the tab when you're ready to file and begin dragging the items into your various cabinet folders.
