Welcome to BrainStorm Cool Tips. New tips will be posted regularly to help you more effectively use GroupWise. If you have any suggestions for tips, please feel free to let us know by emailing

You don't have to stick to Day, Week, Month, and Year Calendar views. GroupWise has many other views built right in - and you can make a button for each view. Here's how:

1. Click the Calendar tab or folder to view your main GroupWise calendar.
2. Right-click the Calendar toolbar and select Properties.
3. Click New View ...
4. Choose a view in the View drop-down list.
5. Enter a name for the new view in the Name field. (This name will show next to the button you create.)
6. Click OK and then OK again.
7. A new button will appear on your Calendar toolbar. Click it to see the view you selected.

To delete a Calendar View button,

1. Right-click the Calendar toolbar and select Properties.
2. Select the view you wish to delete.
3. Click Delete.
4. Click OK.

You can use this tip to create multiple Multi-User View buttons for your Calendar. If you have proxy rights to several calendars, it might be useful to have different Multi-User View buttons for each calendar. You can then label each button according to the team, calendar, or task it shows.

1. Right-click the Calendar toolbar and select Properties.
2. Click New View ...
3. Select Multi-User. Do not select Multi-User (default).
4. Name the view according to the calendar it will show.
5. Click OK and then OK again.
6. The Multi-User selection dialog will appear.
7. Select the proxy calendar(s) you wish to access using this Multi-User view.
8. Click OK.
