Want to share due dates for a project with your project team without publishing your whole calendar? The new GroupWise 7 multiple calendar feature makes it easy. Here's how:

  1. Create a calendar for all your project's due dates. (See BrainStorm's earlier Cool Tip "Creating Multiple Calendars.")
  2. Right-click the newly-created multiple calendar and select Sharing . . . from the menu
  3. .
  4. Select the "Shared with" option.
  5. Either type in the names of the colleagues you want to share the calendar with or click the Address Selector button to select them from your address books.
  6. Click on the names you selected in the Share list and select the permissions levels for each person.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Type a message for the Shared Folder Notification, if desired.
  9. Click OK.

(Click the following link and the resulting Play button to see a flash demonstration of this tip ...)

Note: When your colleagues accept the shared calendar, it will show up just like any other shared folder in their folder lists. It will not appear under their calendars or as a color-coded multiple calendar. But, when they view the folder, it is displayed as a calendar.
