The VMware Workspace ONE Team is excited to announce that VMware Boxer 4.13 for iOS is publicly available.

What’s New in this App Version

  • BINXI-6426: Calendar Attachments
    • Boxer now supports Calendar Attachments. You can add them when creating a new invite or editing an existing one.
    • This feature requires that the inbox is upgraded to EAS 16.1. If supported, an in-app banner prompts you to resync your inbox to upgrade and access this feature.
    • Requires Exchange version 2016 (or higher) or Office 365
  • BINXI-7131: EAS 16.1 migration
    • You will see a blue banner at the top your inbox prompting to upgrade to EAS 16.1 if your email server supports it. Tapping the New Features banner and accepting the confirmation prompt enables the calendar attachments feature.

    • When creating or editing an event, external recipients are also highlighted. If you have enabled the ‘Confirm before sending’ option, a warning is also displayed before sending a calendar invite.
  • BINXI-6905: Use full new event screen when creating an invite from email
    • When you create a new calendar invite from the email compose screen. All the calendar invite options including the adding attachments and Free/Busy availability lookup options are displayed.

    • When creating a calendar invite from the email compose screen, the information put into the not yet sent or ‘draft’ email is transferred to the calendar invite.
    • Once the calendar invite is confirmed by the user, the invite is sent and the original ‘draft’ email is closed.
