WebClient Home Page customization in IceWarp 10.2.x
WebClient offers the Administrator an easy and elegant way to publish and display important information to all users. After logging into WebClient, a customized Home Page can be displayed in the upper middle section of the login page. It can display the following information:
WebClient users can see security information such as last login time, last login IP address, etc. If the Administrator has defined mailbox size limits, users can see their disk quota information (the amount of disk space that their data occupies and how much free space they have left). Users also have access to links to additional client software (Desktop Client, Outlook Connector, Notifier). Finally, the Administrator can add any html page in the frame with additional information, such as server maintenance shut-down schedule.
Navigating the Home Page
The Home Page is displayed if user clicks on the main root icon, which is usually identified by the user’s name.
To ensure that all users see the content of their Home Page on logging in, the Administrator can specify it as the Webclient’s Initial Page. This can be set up via the WebClient’s Administrator Options. Loggedin as an Administrator, select Tools > Administrator Options from the main WebClient menu:
Administrators may implement mailbox size limits for their users. A user’s actual mailbox size may be displayed in the box labeled “Disk Quota” on the Home Page. The Disk Quota is displayed automatically on the Home Page if mailbox size limit is enabled.
For security reasons, a user can verify when his/her account was accessed (Last login time) and from which IP address(es) it has been accessed (Last login IP). This box also displays the values (Current Login IP and Current Login Time) for the current login session.
Desktop Applications And Licenses
If a user clicks on one of the links under Desktop Applications And Licenses (for example, “IceWarp Desktop Client”, a new browser window opens with links to additional client applications, licenses and some other useful links. This box can be enabled via the WebClient in Administration Options – General tab – Home Page by checking the “Enable Application Download Banner” box:
The last box allows an Administrator to add any custom html page. It could be either a simple image banner or a more complicated html page formatted using CSS. To use a Banner frame you will need to:
This value represents the height of the banner frame. You will need to experiment with this to find which is best for you (your users). You might want to start with a value of 500 pixels.
WebClient users can see important information such as messages from their Administrator, Last Login Time, and actual mailbox size on a customized login page.
Home Page: Administrator can specify this page as the Initial Page which will be the first page that a user would see after logging in.
If you’d like to experiment with customizing the WebClient Homepage, simply extract all the files from the attached zip fil archive to your \html folder.
