GroupWare Server

Groupware is a term used to describe collaborative software, which allows sharing information among members of a group targeted at a common task. For example, assistant can plan meetings for his/her boss (time management), or maintain phone numbers across the organization (contact management). By reflecting already implemented structures and seamlessly delivering updated data to client applications, GroupWare will immediately increase users' productivity.

Three levels of privacy are recognized for any piece of shared information, including Private and Public types of entries in Outlook.

  • Private (accessible by owner only)

  • Public (accessible by anyone)

Public Folders
Public folders are accounts established as public to a group, domain, or anyone. Think of them as mailing lists which can hold groupware entries. When subscribed to, they are conveniently located in the left pane of Outlook or WebMail.

Friends are ordinary users to whom you want to grant access to a certain type of information. This ranges from simple Free/Busy status, through shared public data up to modification privileges to your own calendar events. Both parties must establish each other as friend and define the other's access rights.

Reports and Notifications
SReminders and daily schedule reports can be sent to users to notify them of upcoming events, using either e-mail communication or Instant Messaging channel. Weekly agenda, tasks and notes can be viewed in IM client, either your own or public data of other users established for sharing. Notification accounts can be engaged to deliver reminders to cell phones via SMS gateway.
