Groupwise: Create a Shared Folder

You have the option to create a GroupWise folder and share it with multiple people.  People with access to the folder may add messages to it, edit messages, and/or delete messages, depending on the access you grant them.  To create a shared folder, complete the following steps.


  1. In the folder list to the left, right-click on "Cabinet" > Select "New Folder" > Name the folder. If your folder list does not display in the lefthand sidebar, navigate to the GroupWise Folder List Disappears help page.
  2. Right-click on the folder > Click "Sharing..."
  3. Click the "Shared with" radio button. 
  4. To share the folder with someone, type their last name.  When the name appears, click [Add User].  Repeat for each user. 
  5. Each user's access rights appear in the "Access" column of the "Share list."
  6. To edit a person's access to the folder, select his or her name in the "Share list" and use the checkboxes at the bottom of the window.
