Bring together multiple calendars
Import external calendars and overlay your work schedule with important holidays, your favorite sporting events or anything else you need to keep on your radar. Color-code appointments so you can keep track of professional and personal commitments. And, a new second time zone feature makes it easy to manage appointments in different regions of the world.

Gather together all your e-mail accounts

Organize your inbox
Sort your e-mails by fields such as date, subject sender, etc. Display your inbox to include a sneak peak at the first line of each message, see discussion threads or entire message previews.

Find things like never before
Now you can search for e-mails, appointments and contacts with a “Quick Find” feature.

Get notifications as you like
Receive alerts for appointments and e-mails. Set notifications so you can get to meetings on time and receive return status on emails and appointments you send out.

Find one less thing to curse when your computer crashes. Auto Save is here!
Finally, you can rest easy knowing that any work you do in GroupWise will automatically be saved when your computer freezes.

Tag e-mails and appointments
Add standard or customized categories to e-mails and appointments so you can pay attention to what’s urgent, remember to follow up to a request, or simply read an item later.
