What are Moxtra’s capabilities?
Moxtra is designed for mobile collaboration from the ground up. We have powerful text, voice and multimedia chat capabilities, rich visual and verbal content annotations, mobile screen sharing, and task management functionalities, all embedded into virtual team spaces, called Binders. Moxtra also runs on all of your devices.
Moxtra’s key capabilities are:
||A binder is a new kind of collaboration space designed specifically to enable mobile collaboration for teams, projects and topics. Store your files, chats, and to-dos in individual binders for easy access. You can create as many binders as you need. We’ve seen our users create binders for their core team, binders for all the projects they are working on, and binders for short term group messaging around a certain topic.
||Each binder has an area for team messaging for on the go communication. Our messaging service supports text chat, hold-to-talk voice chat, videos, photos, and most other file types.
||Pages are a new kind of file viewer designed for mobile collaboration. Moxtra breaks down files you upload into pages that you can view without needing the native application the file was created in. Your original file is also stored and can be downloaded if needed. In addition to visually representing a file, Pages allow collaboration with Annotation, Clip, and Page based messaging.
||Annotation allows you to mark up pages to provide feedback in the binders using tools like freehand drawing, highlighting, text and pointer arrows.
||Clip allows you to record voice over page(s) and create a video that can be shared within a binder. Clip video can also be shared with people outside the binder.
||Our to-dos provide task management at its simplest form! Moxtra gives you assignable tasks with due dates and custom notes to fellow binder members so you can delegate with ease, and effectively manage all your upcoming project deadlines.
||Whether or not you are in the same zip code as your team, Moxtra Meet allows you to have scheduled (or ad-hoc) mobile and online meetings for both one to one’s and group sessions, with crisp and clear voice conferencing. No smartphone? No problem. Your users can join from any browser on a Desktop as well. With Meet, you can screen share from your mobile device, present content, talk and chat from within the meeting, and record the meeting to refer back to in the future.
How do I get started using Moxtra?
First, create a binder for your topic. It can be a team binder, a project binder, or just a plain ol’ catch-all chat binder. Next, invite all your relevant contacts to join via an email. Take any relevant content you need to share with your team and you can immediately begin to chat and collaborate on top of that. Voila! You have your first binder set up.
Can I email stuff to my binders?
Yes! Each binder has a unique email address. You can find this email address in binder settings.
How do I invite people to binder? Can I invite anybody?
To invite people to a binder, you need to add them as members to your binder. Go to binder settings and add members there. People you invite will get an email extending the invite to join the binder. If people you invite don’t have a Moxtra account, they will be prompted to create an account and download the app. You can invite anybody as long as you have their email address.
People I invited haven't joined my binder. What do I do?
Re-send the invite. Visit your binder settings and you’ll see that members who haven’t joined yet are shown as pending. Invite them to join your binder again and they will get a reminder to join the binder delivered to their email. Send as many reminders as your heart pleases. But please, on behalf of us, don’t go too crazy.
How do I add files to my binders? What kind of files can I add and from where?
To add files, click on "+" next to chat area. Following file types can be added to Moxtra as Pages:
Pictures (jpg, png, bmp, gif)
Documents (PDF, Microsoft Office Documents: .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx, RTF, pages, key, numbers)
Text Files (.txt, .csv
Audio (MP3, AAC)
Video (MP4, M4V, MOV)
Files not listed above can still be added to Moxtra Binder, but they are not converted to pages. They can only be stored and downloaded to view.
You can add files from your local device or desktop, and from cloud file services like Box, DropBox, Evernote, Google Drive, and any service that supports WebDAV protocol. You can also add files from your remote desktop if it is running the Moxtra Desktop Agent.
How many binders can I create? Is there a limit on # of people in binder?
Create as many binders as you need. You heard right. The answer is unlimited. You can invite up to 20 people per binder (business users can invite up to 100 people).
What are contacts? How do I add and delete contacts?
Contacts are the people you share at least one binder with. If you create a binder and invite five people, they will be added to your contact list automatically. If you’re invited to a binder with ten people, all binder members and the binder creator will be added to your contacts.
Next time you create a binder, you can easily add people to your binder from contact list without having to re-type their email address to invite them. Also, you can use your contact list to create a one to one chat binder or have a Moxtra Meet.
To add a contact, go to Contacts and add an email to invite a new contact. This will instantly create a 1:1 chat binder with your new contact.
You can’t delete contacts directly. The list of contacts is automatically managed based on binders you belong to.
How do I turn off notifications?
Easy as pie. Once you get into the settings section of your chosen binder again, toggle on and off the push notifications. If you want to turn off notifications for all your binders, refer to your device OS help to turn off notifications for Moxtra application.
How do I turn off email digests?
Enter the Account Settings of your Moxtra web app, and uncheck “Daily Digest Email”. Simple as that.
How many people can I invite to Meet?
You can invite up to 25 people to a Moxtra Meet.
Does Moxtra support one to one chat?
Yes! Use Moxtra binders for one to one and group chatting as well. To create a one to one chat, go to your contact list to start a chat or add a new contact.
Is there an easier way to add web-links and screen shots to Moxtra?
Take advantage of the Web Clipper for Moxtra, available for download as a browser extension, from our website. Quickly clip and access live webpages or screenshots for viewing inside your binders.
What is Moxtra Desktop Agent?
Moxtra Desktop Agent allows you to access files from your desktop remotely to add to binders from the Moxtra mobile app. Download Moxtra Desktop Agent from www.moxtra.com/download. Make sure the desktop agent is running while your PC or Mac is on and open, before you pull files remotely.
