    Is there a way to programmatically disable or cancel the dragging of items into the Portal folder, so that users don’t mistakenly put items in this folder?

    If it cannot be done programmatically, is there any such setting in GroupWise that would allow us to turn off this functionality?

    Thank you

    Hello John,

    Not that I am aware of, unfortunately. The only workaround that comes to mind would be to write an applet that periodically checks the folder to ensure it doesn’t contain any items. If you already have an applet written, you might be able to combine this functionality into it.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for your response. I will add code to my existing applet in order to move any items out of this folder.

    Thank You

    How about creating a ‘filed item’ rule that checks for items filed in that folder, and moves them to wherever …?

    Thank you for pointing this out; your suggestion works quite well. Its only limitation is that a Filed Item rule can’t work on messages that existed in the Portals folder prior to creating the rule.

    Note that it’s possible to automate, with an applet, the creation of a Rule using the GroupWise Token API (the various .Rule…() methods). It could be useful for an administrator to publish such an applet to all users.
