Figure 2.6. Open Shared Folder

From the dialog shown in Figure 2.6, “Open Shared Folder” it is possible to either open a single folder (for example the calendar folder), or open a complete folder list of a specific user.
The opened folders are stored in the users' WebAccess profile, so the next time the user tries to login to the WebAccess the opened folders are readily available.
To close an opened folder, use the Close store option in the right mouse button menu.
