Open-Xchange Notifier

Description

OX Notifier informs the user about the current status of E-Mails and appointments without having to display the user interface or another client like Outlook. The new tool also provides the possibility to mount the personal InfoStore directly in the OX Notifier settings.

Whenever a user gets a new E-Mail or appointment, a notification window pops up and informs the user about new items.

The snooze button allows the user to ignore an appointment pop-up. If an appointment reminder has been ignored with the snooze button, the reminder will be shown again though after a refresh or the next server query, in case the appointment has started already.

It is possible to make several settings like entering server URLs, selecting reminder-times, selecting the modules to be informed about, etc. The OX Notifier will be installed on the client desktop via a .exe package. The tool connects to the OX server entered.


Availability

OX Notifier is part of the offering for Open-Xchange Server Edition, Open-Xchange Hosting Edition and OX App Suite.
