Business Specific Features...
GroupMAN is a feature-rich ListServer with additional features not found in other packages specifically designed for the business environment. Here is a partial list of some of the business specific features GroupMAN offers.

Want to remind everybody that they need to have their progress reports to you on Friday? GroupMAN makes it easy to schedule a reminder that is automatically mailed to the mailing list on the date you specify. GroupMAN also allows you to create reminders that are only sent to you, never forget to stop at the grocery on the way home again!

File Repository
Finding that up-to-date version of the project specs can be a daunting task, especially if it has been updated a multitude of times. You open your email and find a what you think is the last copy that has been sent to you but find out after the work is completed that you were working from an outdated version! Never again! GroupMAN allows each list to maintain a repository of shared files. Request any of the files in the repository by simply sending an email to the list or request a catalog of all the available files. GroupMAN's sophisticated file repository allows files to be added, requested, updated and deleted through simple email requests. Configure the repository to allow anyone to update repository files or only allow the original poster the ability to update the file.

Web Archive
GroupMAN will optionally upload a web reference for your list to your website or to your intranet. The web reference can contain a stats and general information page, message archive with all of the messages ever sent to your list, the file repository catalog, and a listing of all upcoming public reminders.
