OWA Light Calendaring Insufficient Says New Poll
According to a new survey, more than 85% of Microsoft Office OWA Light users polled want the ability to view their calendar by week and by month.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) December 4, 2008 - According to a new survey sponsored by Messageware (www.messageware.com), the world's leading provider of enterprise productivity and security solutions for Outlook Web Access (OWA), more than 85% of Microsoft Office OWA Light users polled want the ability to view their calendar by week and by month. These views are found in OWA Premium, but not in OWA Light, the only remote mail solution for enterprises that have deployed Microsoft Office Exchange and whose users are on Apple Mac's or are using the Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Netscape browsers.
Between May and October, 2008, forty-nine users were polled online at www.outlook-web-access.com. When asked whether they knew about the missing monthly and weekly calendar views in OWA Light, 57.1% were aware of this missing feature and wanted it back, while 28.6% did not know, but desired it.
"Business professionals today are busier than ever," said Mark Rotman, President & CEO of Messageware. "They need to be able to assess their schedule quickly wherever they are. To make OWA Light more user-friendly and productive for users, Messageware is releasing an update to their popular CalendarShare product in early December that will provide the OWA Light user with OWA Premium functionality, such as monthly and weekly calendar views."

With ActiveSend, CalendarShare and Plus Pack, the user experience is improved by making OWA more like desktop Outlook, so that emails and documents can be composed and sent easily.
