There are two parts to proxy access:
You can give others access to your calendar, as well as your to your mailbox.
Log into GroupWise on the Web as usual.
Click on the tools button at the top right and select Options from the menu that appears.
Click on the Proxy Access tab.
To give someone access to your account:
Click on the Add Entry button.
Enter the name of the person to whom you want to give access in the Name field, or click on the Address Selector button to the right of the field to select names directly from the address book.
Tip: There are several people on campus who are listed more than once in the address book, or have the same name as others. We recommend that you use the address book to select names when granting proxy access.
With the new person's name in the Name field, you'll next want to specify their rights,
Click in the appropriate boxes for Read and Write Access.
Read access gives someone the ability to just read whatever you select. They cannot change anything.
Write access gives them the ability to write and delete items. Be cautious when granting someone these complete rights.
Click on the Save button.
Close the Options window.
When you have been given proxy access to someone else's mail and/or calendar, you need to “retrieve” that access.
Click on the Proxy button on the toolbar.
Click on the person's name in the Proxy List below or enter their name in the Name field (you might need to do a search for their name with the Address Book).
Click Login if you've entered a new name.
The other person's account displays in a new window.
As with any GroupWise web account, make sure you use the Logout link at the top to log out of your web session.
