AppSuite:Quick launcher

With OX App Suite 7.10 a new concept of starting applications was introduced and replaced the tabs from previous versions.

By default you can switch the applications in the upper right part of the screen on the icon which looks like a numeric keypad.

It is however possible to enable a quick launcher to have the most used applications on the left side.

First you have to set the default configuration:

vim /opt/open-xchange/etc/settings/ and add:


This will enable three new quick launchers, mail, calendar and drive. 3 is the maximum.

In case you really want to have a 4th, you can set the OX logo as a quickLauncher for your "Default app after sign in":

#OX-logo mail app

if your "Default app after sign in" is mail you can change:




To make it possible for the user to change the applications you have to un-protect the setting:

vim /opt/open-xchange/etc/meta/appsuite.yaml

    protected: false

Note: as in all yaml files: the leading spaces (4) on the second line are important.

After a restart or reloadconfiguration of OX App Suite and a re-login you should see three new icons on the left. If you also un-protected the setting you can change the applications in Settings/Basic settings.
