Worldox on the iPad
The iPad app is free, but is not by itself enough to connect with Worldox.
on the iPad is a new way to connect from remote locations to existing Worldox document repositories.
So the first pre-requisite for iPad connection is Worldox itself. You must already be a Worldox user, with Worldox
installed and set up at your main office location.
You also need to have GX2 or GX3 installed. In addition, your firm must have a current maintenance
agreement with Worldox, guaranteeing access to necessary program updates.
The other important piece is Worldox/Web Mobile
. Originally designed to enable laptop and smart phone access, this companion utility
provides a server-based platform for remote connection providing you with online document management. Now with the iPad app,
the possibilities for remote connection expand. No matter how you connect from out-of-office - iPad or otherwise, Worldox/Web
Mobile is required.
"OK, we have Worldox and Worldox/Web Mobile... am I good to go?"
That should do it. Before logging in, be sure you have the following:
- Web Mobile server address(url)
- Document server name and password
- User ID and password
You should have received these identifiers from your Worldox Administrator, the person at your film
in charge of Worldox set-up and operation. As a valued Worldox customer, you are of course welcome to call
Technical Support with questions. Please note however, that we will not be able to provide iPad login ID.
Only your Worldox Administrator can do that.
Logging in on the iPad
With the iPad app installed, click the Worldox icon on your iPad desktop.
Enter the address (url) for your web server in the Worldox Web Mobile URL field - excluding the "http://" or "https://".
Example: For this url:
Enter text after the slashes:
The secure connection switch is pre-set to ON. Leave it ON if your web server is secure (url begins with "https://"). Otherwise, slide the switch to OFF.
Enter the document server name and password. (Passwords are case-sensitive.)
Enter your user code and password. (Passwords are case-sensitive.)
With Save names/Save password switches ON, Worldox remembers ID for future logins. (You would set them to OFF to maximize security.)
