When an appointment is modified by the original sender, all delegated recipients, along with the original recipients, receive the modifications. There is no longer any need to re-delegate the appointment. Because of this change, delegated appointments always contain the date, time, place, and duration of the appointment.
For more information on delegating appointments, see Section 4.5.3, Delegating Calendar Items.

In previous versions of GroupWise, if thefield is empty in an appointment and the field contains one or more resources, the field is populated with the name of the first resource in the field. In GroupWise 2012, the empty field is populated with the names of all of the place-type resources in the field.
When you send an appointment that conflicts with an appointment that is already on your calendar, GroupWise prompts you with a notification before the appointment is sent, telling you that there is a conflicting appointment. You are then given the option to continue scheduling the appointment or to change the appointment.
In previous versions of GroupWise, you can send an appointment and all occurrences of the appointment are automatically accepted for the sender, even if there are conflicts on the sender’s calendar.
