The GroupWise 8 Windows client has been improved with an updated look and feel, more customizable user interface, more attractive buttons and icons, and many other changes. The main improvements include:
Panels: A panel is a customized view of information in GroupWise. A panel can be created to display a multitude of information, from unread items to a summary calendar. A predefined list of panels has been created, but you can also create your own custom panels. You can now create three or more panels, and you can also create multiple Web panels for displaying Internet pages in GroupWise.
Simple Folder List: The Simple Folder List has been changed to include the ability to create a Favorites list, RSS Feeds list, Contacts list, Calendar list, NNTP list, and Documents list. See Section 1.5, Exploring the Folder List.
Time Zone Synchronization with Your Workstation: When you change the time zone on your workstation, GroupWise automatically switches its time to match the workstation without restarting GroupWise.
Discussion Thread Tab on an Item View: When you view an item, you can click the Discussion Threads.tab to display a list of items that were sent back and forth on the same thread. See
Display Settings: Several improvements have been made to the display settings in GroupWise. When you change the display settings from the main menu, the settings are preserved in your next session. In addition, you can now save your display settings and send your display settings to others. You can also import display settings that are sent to you.
Drag-and-Drop Pop-Out: When you have hidden the Folder List, you can drag an item to where the Folder List is located and the Folder List automatically pops out for you to drop your item in.
