OX App Suite File Support

OX App Suite web frontend allows you to preview, view and edit files at the different modules.

One of the modules is OX Drive, an integral part the OX App Suite user frontend. OX Drive provides view, preview, run and even edit a variety of media file types (e.g. photos, music documents etc.). Note: to edit documents you do need to have the relevant document editor activated within OX App Suite.

Other components of OX App Suite include OX Document Viewer, which allows users to preview and view various file formats, and OX Documents which further enhances collaboration and creativity by allowing real time sharing, collaboration and editing of documents online. OX Documents contains OX Text and OX Spreadsheet.

A common question is what files are supported of the different modules. The following list is not definitive
