CodeTwo Public Folders is an Outlook extension, allowing many network users to share their resources with each
other. All users can work with the same data simultaneously. Each change in the shared folders made by one
user becomes immediately visible to other users. Users can create, edit and delete folders and items of any
type available in Outlook (calendars, contacts, email messages, tasks, journals, notes) and even create folders with Office documents (such as Word docs or Excel spreadsheets).
From the user's point of view, working with shared folders looks exactly the same as working with Outlook personal folders. This is a considerable advantage as users do not have to learn to operate the new software and can start using Outlook for group work immediately.
Installation and deployment of the software are very straightforward. First install the Syncing Master on one of the computers in the local network (it does not require any additional configuration). Then, install the Outlook Addins on the machines you want to have access to the shared folders. If you want to quickly check how CodeTwo Public Folders works, you don't even have to install the Syncing Master - you can connect to our internet demo server. More...
