This article covers the requirements for using the AskCody App, how to install, and how to set up the AskCody App, both for IT Administrators and as an employee.
The AskCody App is integrated into Microsoft Exchange and the entire AskCody Platform. The App inherits information set on rooms, equipment, settings, scheduling rules, and policies from AskCody combined with information from Exchange resources. See the diagram below to get the full overview.
Requirements for using the AskCody Mobile App
- All users have to be in Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).
- An integration between your Azure AD and AskCody has to be established and active. This meaning that users that need access to the mobile app, have to be synchronized users in the AskCody Management Portal.
(We provide two ways of integrating to Azure AD)
Please note that if you currently use AADFS (Active Directory Server Integration) to synchronize your users into AskCody from your Azure AD, you MUST grant consent to Azure AD for you to use the Mobile App.
Follow Step 1 and 2 in this article to grant consent or contact AskCody for more guidance.
- Mobile phones need to support either iOS version 14 or newer, or Android version 9 or newer (The Android version of the mobile app is not available yet).
- NOTE: If you are currently migrating from an Exchange Server to Exchange Online, and want to use the mobile app while migrating, you will have to make sure the users that need access to the mobile app are migrated to Exchange Online. You can choose which Exchange integration the user should be authenticated with, from within the Management Portal, see this article for further help.
