Groupwise: Use GroupWise Notify
GroupWise Notify allows you to work fully on a project without checking your email every few minutes by displaying a "pop-up" reminder on your computer screen when you receive an email and/or you have a calendar appointment with an alarm. The notification window will disappear after a few moments.
Receive Notifications Temporarily
You may turn Notify on temporarily to see if you like it, and it will be gone the next time you log on to a computer.
- Go to [Start] > "All Programs" > "Novell GroupWise" > Click "Notify."
- You will start receiving notifications (pop-up windows) when you receive an email or have an appointment on your GroupWise calendar.
Receive Notifications Automatically
To run Notify every time you log in to any computer, follow these steps.
- Open GroupWise.
- Select "Tools" > "Options" > [Environment] > "General" tab.
- Check the box labeled "Launch Notify at startup" on the right side of the window > Click [OK] > Click [Close].
- Close and reopen GroupWise for the changes to take effect.
- If you turned Notify on temporarily, simply repeat the steps under "Receive Notifications Automatically."
- If you turned Notify on for every GroupWise session, repeat the steps under "Automatically launch GroupWise when GroupWise is opened" > Uncheck the box labeled "Launch Notify at Startup."
Select Specific Notifications
When Notify is enabled, you will automatically begin receiving two kinds of notifications. A pop-up window will display whenever you receive an email as well as 5 minutes before appointments scheduled in your GroupWise calendar.
- Open GroupWise.
- Go to "Tools" > "Options" > "Security" > Click the "Notify" tab.
- Type in your own name, starting with your last name.
Check or uncheck the boxes to select or unselect the notifications you want to receive.
- "Alarms" are pop-ups regarding appointments on your calendar.
- "Notifications" are pop-up messages announcing new email.
