Create Contacts

You can create contacts by tapping the '+' icon at the top-right corner of the Contacts screen and add basic information such as name, job title, department, company, office location, email address, and phone number.

There are also additional contact fields to add the nickname, birthday, instant message, and relationships of your contacts such as assistant, manager, and spouse. You can also search for a contact using the nickname.

Any changes you make to these contacts in the native contacts app does not get reflected to Boxer contacts.

Identify your Incoming Calls Using the Callkit Support

Use Workspace ONE Boxer to identify incoming calls without exporting the Boxer contacts to the native contacts application.

This feature provides better security and separation between your corporate contacts and personal contacts. Caller ID functionality using CallKit is only valid for incoming and outgoing calls, and call history.
  • CallKit does not support integration with the iOS Messages app and traditional car Bluetooth systems. Your incoming texts and incoming calls are not identified when using traditional car systems.
  • This feature is supported only on 64-bit devices running iOS 10 and above versions.
  • Caller ID functionality using CallKit is not supported in China due to government restrictions.
  1. Navigate to your iOS Settings > Phone > Call Blocking & Identification.
  2. To enable the CallKit support, select Boxer and tap the toggle button.

CallKit support is enabled and your incoming calls are identified using the Boxer contacts. Due to iOS limitations, text and iMessage messages are not identified.
