Welcome to Online Help for Avaya’s IX Messaging Client Applications Guide!
The Client Applications Guide is designed to educate typical users who will be adapting a single or suite of IX Messaging applications. From the desktop client application to mobile apps, the Client Applications Guide thoroughly covers each topic, from installation to how to use it.
Client applications within the IX Messaging system are designed with an intuitive user interface which allows the users to learn as they go. The many types of client applications also share a common core, allowing desktop application users to adapt to web or mobile versions without difficulty.
While using these client applications is simple, you may end up missing out on the convenient features and shortcuts which are embedded within all applications to make life easier. In order to familiarize yourself with the platform, and to ensure that your productivity is at its maximum, please take the time to review this guide in detail.
