You got your Training in my GroupWise!

OK, the new Web Panel features totally rocks. I have been finding a bunch of different ways that it makes GroupWise the new killer app.

GroupWise 8 has a very nice set of web based training in the help menu. Go to Help > Training and Tutorials and your web browser will open with the BrainStorm web based training. But, don’t stop there, let’s kick it up a notch. What if we could have that training right inside of GroupWise for easy reference? We can! Just make a new folder, set it to panel view (single column) and create a new panel that points at

OK, that’s pretty nice, but now we’re going to crank this all the way up to “11”.

What if you could share this folder with all of your GW8 users, so they will see how nice web panels are, and they will have the training embedded withing GroupWise? Just right click on the folder, and choose share. Share it out with your GroupWise 8 users. When they accept the share, and then open the folder, the web panel survives the share. The people you shared it with will now see the GroupWise training within the folder you shared. I could see the ability to share web panels as being very useful.

Note: It seems to also work with RSS feeds. So you can create an RSS folder, and share it with other users.
