GroupFlow

Product Summary

GroupFlow automates many of the tasks associated with creating and maintaining groups in Notes / Domino and enforces your group naming standards.

GroupFlow:

  • Adds workflow to Notes group creation and management.
  • Enforces group naming standards.
  • Distributes the tasks associated with group management to end users.
  • Allows group owners to control their own groups without direct access to group documents in the public address book.
  • Depending on the options selected, group owners can approve their own requests. No administrator action is required.
  • Scheduled agents process approved requests automatically.
  • Many fields in GroupFlow requests are automatically populated from predefined profiles, reducing the input required for each GroupFlow request.
  • The following types of requests can be submitted in GroupFlow:
    • Create New Group
    • Add / Remove Group Members
    • Add / Remove Group Readers
    • Change Group Description
    • Change Group Internet Address
    • Change Group Owners
    • Delete Group
    • Move Group Members (from one group to another)
    • Rename Group
  • Deleted groups are archived and can be easily restored.
  • When a Delete Group or Rename Group request is processed, GroupFlow creates an adminp request to complete the rename or delete task.
  • All actions performed by GroupFlow are recorded in GroupFlow's log database, providing an audit trail.
  • Specific groups can be marked as protected so GroupFlow will not modify them.
  • Duplicate group names are not allowed when creating a new group or renaming an existing group.
  • Specific characters can be disallowed in new group names to meet your company standards. For example, you may want to prevent spaces and some special characters from being used in group names.
  • Group internet addresses can be automatically calculated and checked for uniqueness when a new group is created by GroupFlow.

Automatic Group Creation

GroupFlow can create and maintain groups automatically using several methods. Groups can be automatically created based on certifiers, a standard Notes formula, a view in any Notes database or by mail server. GroupFlow will also update the groups automatically using a scheduled agent. Groups can be updated daily, weekly, monthly or on demand.

  • Find All Members Of A Group: All direct and indirect (nested) members of a group will be reported.
  • Find All Access Groups: Reports all groups that will grant access to a particular user. Direct and indirect groups are reported.
  • Find Unlisted Group Members: Reports all group members that do not have a corresponding person, group or server document.
