There are several options for finding items in GroupWise . Note however that if you want to search your archives, you will have to do a seperate search there as GroupWis can't search your active account and your archives at the same time.
Options for finding things in GroupWise include:
There is a search box in the upper right corner of the window. If you put in a search criteria such as a name, GroupWise will filter the window to display only those items that match your criteria in the folder you have selected. For example, if you click on the Mailbox folder on the left, then type your co-worker's name in the Find box, GroupWise will display all the emails you have gotten in your Mailbox from your co-worker.
Here is an example of an unfiltered Mailbox folder.
This is the Mailbox folder filtered for items with co-worker "lonowski." Note it searches not only emails that come directly from the contact but those that the contact was included in on as well.
Clear the filter by deleting what is in the Find box.
If you want to search for items in all of your folders,
The following dialog box appears.
For this example, "halvorson" will be entered in the Find what field. See below for results.
In the results window above, GroupWise has displayed all incoming and outgoing emails with the name "halvorson". The last column shows the folder location of the item. You can double-click on an item from this list to open it.
For more advanced searching options such as searching proxy accounts or within certain date ranges,
The following screen appears
The Find window on the PC has a Find tab and a Find by Example tab. On the Find tab, you can specify where to look in the Look in: section. In the sample above, all items that are checked will be searched. Note that there is a expand option next to the Kristi Gladen Home folder that will show all of the sub-folders on the account. Narrow your search as needed by filling out the appropriate fields. For example, to search for a Mail item received at some point in the past two weeks from your boss, you'd check the Mail box under Item type, Received under Item source, set the Date range for the past two weeks and type in bosses name in the second white field after changing the To/CC option button to From/Author. The more you can narrow your search, the quicker the results will display.
Another option is to use the Find by Example tab in the same window as shown above.With this option, you can perform a search by giving GroupWise an example of what you are looking for. For instance, if you were looking for an email you sent out to someone and can't remember who but are pretty sure the word "project" was part of the subject line, you would then check the box for Sent and type in "project' in the Subject line.
