    Rule to set all messages put into shared folder as read

    Does anyone know a way to set messages as read at the moment when they are put into a shared folder?

    Normal GroupWise behavior is that messages put into a shared folder as 'unread' in the view of the owner of the shared folder - in most cases this is good, as from the perspective of the owner of the shared folder he did not read it.
    We use shared folders from resources to provide storage for project related mails - works well. Downside is that if we archive the folder from the resource all messages are considered 'unread' which is not correct...

    I've played with rules, but somehow putting a message into a shared folder does not trigger any rule, or am I missing something?

    Anyone has a good idea or hint for me?

    thanks
    Mathias

    Hi Mathias,

    Whilst I have tested this as yet, my first comment would be that the rule would have to be on the resource owning the folder - have you set the rule there?

    Please let us know,

    Cheers,

    Hi Laura,

    yes, I tried that and tried all rules that are available - somehow they do not get executed.
    I would have expected that at least the "Filed Item" gets executed, but not even that one...

    regards
    Mathias

    Hi Mathias,

    I'm not sure what to suggest next Perhaps wait around for a more knowledgable community member to come along, or a Service Request?

    The best I can think of would be an "on open" or "on close" for the folder as the trigger. This would still require that the owner at least OPEN the folder occasionally though. You are correct that messages placed into shared folders do not trigger the "on filed" rule, but I suspect that an "on open" for the folder would.
