Employees interested in a new service to conveniently check their GroupWise e-mail and calendar events from their cell phone or mobile device, can now do so with GroupWise Sync.
You will need to contact the IT Services Help Desk and request to have your GroupWise account modified for mobile access.
You will need to allow 12 hours for the change to activate.
While waiting, employees are advised to back up their phone contacts to eliminate any potential for data loss.
The IT Services Knowledge Base has articles for configuring GroupWise Sync for Android, iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
Previously only the Blackberry phone could sync to GroupWise using a purchased BES license. GroupWise apps for iPhone, iPod, and iPad also had to be purchased separately for the GroupWise calendar and e-mail or use Internet message access protocol (commonly known as IMAP). IMAP does not sync the GroupWise Calendar and is available for use only on certain phones. GroupWise Sync is a free service available to IPFW employees.
