Release Date: March 11, 2024 | Egnyte iOS Mobile App v. 8.27.1 (for Intune) 

New features and enhancements

Microsoft Intune SDK update to version 19.1.0

The Egnyte iOS App for Microsoft Intune has been updated to version 19.1.0 of the Intune SDK for iOS which contains important fixes.

The iOS for Intune App has been brought up to parity with the latest version of the Egnyte iOS app and users will now have access to the following features

Secure and Govern Notifications

Egnyte Secure and Govern subscribers using the mobile app can now receive issue and sensitive content alerts on their devices. Mobile alerts are enabled by default and can be managed in the S&G Alerts tab. These push notifications are visible on locked screens and can be reviewed in the Notifications screen of the app.

iPad users can opt to be directed to their Secure and Govern login page, where they'll be guided to the relevant tab based on the alert type.

Location-Triggered Project Access Notifications

If the geographic location is set within a Project Folder, users who travel to the location can receive an automatic notification upon arriving at the project's address. The notification offers the users an option to jump directly to the relevant Project Folder.

Users who want to receive the Project Access Notifications need to enable location services in the device settings and allow the Egnyte app to access the device location. Location-Triggered Project Access Notifications are available for Project Control Add-on users only.

URL Files

Egnyte Mobile App now provides the ability to create Links as Assets or links as files. The Create/Upload menu provides the option to create URL files. Users can specify the link and a name for the URL file. The link can be to a website, a confluence page, or an internal URL.
