New Conversation View Beta in VMware Boxer 4.14

Background

In an effort to provide the best possible user-experience with VMware Boxer, the VMware Workspace ONE Team is introducing conversation view beta, which is now available in VMware Boxer 4.14 through the App Store as well as the Google Play Store.

Several improvements include:

  • Cleaner threaded emails
  • Attachments (and number of attachments) relocated to the top of emails for easier access
  • Improvements to email rendering messages with a focus on readability
  • Option to have new emails on top or bottom of threads
  • New action bar with improvements for one-handed usability

To take advantage of these improvements, iOS 11+ or Android 5.0+ is required.

 

Customer Impact

iOS

To enable conversation view, open VMware Boxer 4.14 and navigate to Settings > Advanced Settings and toggle the "New Conversation View (BETA)" option. Along with conversation view, there are a variety of rendering modes which can be configured including the following:

  • Dynamic Scaling: [Recommended] Keeps text the same size across emails and scales down large tables and inline images.
  • Default Render Mode: Zooms out to display the entire email. This is the current rendering mode in conversation view. This mode may result in small text if there are large tables or images in the email.
  • Static Scale Render Mode: Always defaults the zoom settings to 100% to keep text the same size across all emails.
  • Max-Width Image Render Mode: Scales large images to fit on the screen while trying to preserve text size.
  • Intrinsic Render Mode: Displays emails while retaining original proportions of the email. No scaling is applied to the email when using this mode.
