AppSuite:OX Sync App
OX Sync App
OX Sync App is a native mobile phone app built specifically for smartphone users of Android, that also have a valid OX App Suite account. The app is designed to let users sync their OX App Suite Appointments, Tasks and Contacts environment directly from a native mobile phone client. On the base of the implementation as sync adapter, it integrates seamlessly with the default Android calendar- and contacts apps.
The OX Sync App has been designed specifically for ease-of-use and is available for Android only.
Please Note: For end users to use this app, in conjunction with your implementation of OX App Suite, your company must appear on the app’s “Provider List”.

Note: OX Sync App was designed to work on Smartphones. In some rare cases devices with very large screens (greater than 5.6") might be recognized as tablets by the Play Store. In this case, OX Sync App will not show up and can not be installed on your device.
Integrated Branding/Customization Concept for Partners and Customers
When a user installs OX Sync App they are first presented with a list of preconfigured providers. After the user selects a provider the app is then automatically configured, and branded, for that provider.
Note: The OX Sync App will only work with the providers displayed on that list of providers.
Branding / Customization Process
In order to participate you will need to provide specific information such as:
- Confirmation that you are running OX App Suite 7.8.2 or later.
- A full URL where your OX App Suite service can be reached by a web client.
- A full DAV-URL, where your OX Calendar and OX Contact data can be reached
- Two test accounts on your OX App Suite service, where we can verify that the OX App Suite system works as expected.
- A “logo” and “name” of your service. This information will be used in the app itself.
- The General Design of OX Sync for Android is based on Google’s material design principles (https://material.google.com/). Not more than three colors are used. For the OX branded version we have chosen the following colors:
- Primary color: OX blue
- Secondary color: OX medium blue
- Accent color: OX mandarin
- The primary email domain of your service
- Choose a Providerlist visibility: hidden, semi-hidden, semi-public, public
- Hidden: the account can only be set up by a special link
- Semi-hidden: same as hidden, but also with full email address (incl. domain)
- Semi-visible: same as semi-hidden, but auto-completion is also available
- Visible: Service listed in Providerlist
- In case your system serves a large number of arbitrary domains please let us know. Support for that scenario is possible as long as all MX records of those domains are pointing to the MX of the primary domain.
To discuss the requirements, three colors and next steps, please send your input to firstname.lastname@example.org.
