The system address book is marked with a icon.
The system address book is the address book configured and maintained by the system administrator. Use this address book to view information about everyone in your GroupWise system.
Because the system address book is generally quite large, you might want to search for names or use predefined filters to find the name you are looking for, rather than scrolling through the entire address book. See Searching for User, Resource, Organization, and Group Addresses.
You can view information about contacts in the system address book, but you cannot edit this information.
The Frequent Contacts address book is marked with a icon.
Use the Frequent Contacts address book to access your most frequently used or most recently used entries. When you use an address in a message, the entry is copied to the Frequent Contacts address book if the book’s options are set to do so. You can view the date and time you last used an entry and the number of times you have used it.
After an entry is placed in Frequent Contacts, it remains there until you delete it. The entry also remains in its original address book.
Although the Frequent Contacts address book is created by GroupWise, it is considered a personal address book because you can edit the information for contacts.
Personal address books are marked with a icon. For information on creating a personal address book, see Section 7.7.1, Creating a Personal Address Book.
You can create, edit, save, and rename multiple address books for your personal use, and you can share these address books with other users.
You can add and delete names and address information for any contact (person, company, or resource) you want in your personal address books. You can also create your own information properties (fields). When you create a personal address book, a book icon is added to the main Address Book window. You can expand and collapse open books by clicking + and -.
When you create multiple address books, you can include the same name and address in several books. If the entry is copied from an address book and you edit the entry’s information in one book, it is updated in all books.
Personal address books list addresses according to your preferences. For example, you can include Internet addresses or no address at all for the people you add to your personal address books. You can also create personal groups. If you save a list of people as a group, you only need to type the group name in the Section 7.3, Using Groups to Address Items.field to send the entire group a message. See
Shared address books are marked with a icon. This icon might be slightly different, depending on whether or not you created the address book.
You can share personal address books with other users. You can give users read only rights, or you can give them rights to read, add, edit, and delete information in the address book. When you share an address book, the users receive a notification that they can accept or decline. See Section 7.8, Sharing an Address Book with Another User.
