Collaboration

The Axigen Solution: Overview & Architecture

Having time management and mobility needs in mind a Personal Organizer module is available from both Axigen’s WebMail interface and the email client Outlook. The Personal Organizer comprises tools such as calendar, tasks, journal, notes and collaborative support.

Aiming to adapt to all requirements generated by a competitive business environment, this permission granting structure enables users to delegate email sending tasks to their team members and view the availability (free / busy) status to avoid assigning events when a team member is already taking part in a different one.

The Axigen Outlook Connector enhances the communication of Microsoft's email client with the Axigen server, thus making the Personal Organizer available for Outlook users to take full advantage of all Axigen's features and capabilities.

Axigen Outlook Connector implements most Exchange-like features including server-side Search Folders (such as Unread messages or Large Messages) which enables users to easily locate messages based on various filters. The new application also allows new folders (including special folders) creation on the server directly from Outlook.

The iCalendar compatibility and support built into the Axigen mail server product aims to provide data (contact, meeting, task etc.) and option setting synchronization between the email service and an external email client accessing the stored information across the network. These features facilitate the administration and maintenance of the user mailbox, as well as provide access to calendaring features for users of email clients that support the ICS standard.

The Calendar helps users plan and schedule their work-related or personal events and to have a clear and detailed view of their work, thus enabling an improved time management.

Tasks helps users organize their work-related tasks and collaborate with others on ongoing projects. By enabling them to permanently check the level of completion, tasks offer a clear and detailed view of their workload.

When creating calendar events attendees can be invited. Additionally the availability (free / busy) status of the attendees is displayed IF the user editing the event has the 'Read Free/Busy status' permission on the attendee's mailbox.

The Journal allows you to add entries that help you keep track of your day-to-day tasks and actions.

The Note tool allows you to add quick notes while working. Notes are best suited when one needs to write down something very quickly and has little time to add more details.
