Novell has great plans for the future of collaboration. With a renewed focus on customers and an increase in engineering investment, GroupWise is designed with some hotly anticipated capabilities. See how GroupWise 2012 delivers features like including iPad support, enhanced web access, improved calendaring, integrations with Novell Vibe and Skype and easier information sharing.
A workspace that works the way you do
Novell GroupWise gives you a wide range of collaborative tools to create a truly "plugged in" work environment. You can easily customize different Home Views or "personal productivity dashboards", bringing together the tools and web applications you interact with most for any given aspect of your job. From emails from your boss, to your daily appointments, to your RSS feeds, to team workspaces, you can grab what matters most and put it front and center.
Turn your contact list into a relationship builder
You can do a lot better than just keeping track of phone numbers and addresses. Now you can keep track of people, histories, agreements, connections and more, right within GroupWise.
Manage tons of users with a tiny administrator staff
With GroupWise you can support up to 10,000 users on a single server. And centralized, policy-based administration means one administrator can manage several thousand GroupWise user accounts; in fact, many current Novell customers manage 5,000-10,000 users with only one administrator.
Microsoft servers go down so often that downtime is planned into IT activities. With GroupWise, your system doesn't tend to go down unless you take it down. GroupWise stays running far longer and more reliably than anything else. Viruses don't get through nearly as often to bring down your system. With GroupWise, that's a reality.
Real mobile synchronization choices for real-time mobile access and updates
Mobile users have different needs and different mobile devices. Novell mobility solutions provide the choices you need to keep users connected and in sync.
Keep systems secure
Malicious virus attacks, typically initiated through email, can bring productivity to a grinding halt, but GroupWise keeps your users working and connected. Find out how GroupWise beats the competition with by far the fewest number of documented vulnerabilities.
Unleash your calendaring
Subscribe to external calendars and overlay your work schedule with important holidays, sporting events or anything else you need to keep on your radar, and get live updates. You can also publish your own calendar so colleagues outside your organization can busy search your schedule and easily set appointments.
Share your calendars

See your calendar come to life. With an improved graphical interface, you can color code appointments to easily keep track of professional and personal commitments. You can also drag and drop meetings to their new times as your schedule changes. You can choose to display day, week or year view - whatever best suits your needs. You can also quickly add appointments, notes, and tasks in your calendar and see a summary view of an item by mousing over that item.
Improved calendar printing
Print your daily calendar. Have you ever wished you could just print your calendar, rather than scribbling down notes in your planner or on sticky notes? Now, with just a couple of clicks, you can print a copy of your calendar to take with you if you know you won't have computer access. The copy of your calendar will be a clean and organized view of your schedule that will ensure that you stay on top of things even when you can't be at your desk.
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 to help you keep track of professional and personal commitments. You can now create one or more personal calendars in addition to the standard GroupWise system calendar.
Consolidate email accounts
Gather together all your email accounts. Interact with your external email accounts within GroupWise. Organize them into folders and even place them in your home view. If you have multiple email accounts, you no longer have to change locations to look at each account. This feature allows you to add your POP3 and IMAP4 Internet mail accounts to GroupWise so that you can read and send messages for all your accounts from GroupWise.
Simple vacation rules
Start your vacation sooner. A simplified vacation rule gives you a no-hassle way to set up an auto-reply that tells others you are out of the office. With start and end options, you don't have to worry about turning off the vacation reply once you return. It's easier to prepare for vacation with GroupWise. With just a couple of clicks, you can set up a vacation rule and an auto-reply that includes the start and end dates of your vacation.
Your inbox the way you like it
Organize your inbox. Sort your emails 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. Your inbox doesn't have to be just a jumbled collection of messages. GroupWise makes it easy to turn your inbox into a personal productivity asset.
Create impactful emails with graphical formatting. With HTML features and on-the-fly spell check, you can create customized email that looks and reads the way you want you want them to - no more boring text-mails. GroupWise uses a spell checker that highlights all the misspelled words in your subject or message fields, and you can choose to automatically check each message you create before you send it.
Discussions in context
Know the latest and the history on a discussion with a single click. GroupWise allows you to sort and view emails within a discussion thread. You can also open an email and see the complete thread history with one click - no more responding to an issue that's already been solved or searching through your inbox and sent folders to piece together a discussion.
Find things like never before. Now you can search for emails, appointments and contacts with a "quick find" feature. GroupWise features greatly enhanced search features, and Filter has been replaced with find on the toolbar. Now you can search across all folders, libraries and item type.
Get the notifications you need
Receive alerts for appointments and emails. Set notifications so you can get to meetings on time and receive return status on emails and appointments you send out. If notify is enabled, it will inform you when you receive a GroupWise item or when it's time for an appointment.
Turn your contacts into relationships
With a look and feel that brings your contacts alive, a card format lets you add photos and profile information such as profession, published calendar link, birthday and family member names. Communication history and your notes with each contact also display so you can easily follow up on previous conversations. And the search automatically queries all of your address books.
All your emails in one screen
You want Web access to be as convenient and inclusive as your email client. That's why GroupWise brings all your messages to you in one screen. Now you can see all your messages in one, scrollable list, which means no more clicking on "Next 20" to see additional emails. You can also resize and reorder columns to suit your needs.
Faster accessProduct Highlights
Get to your inbox faster. Typically when you log in to your web email, you have to wait until your address books load in order to use your inbox. And because of the innovative Web 2.0 technologies GroupWise leverages, you don't have to wait; your emails and appointments are automatically loaded when you log in and your address books populate when needed. In addition, when you type in a contact name, GroupWise automatically performs a name fill, helping you get the information you need quickly.
