Using HCL Verse Mobile

You can bring many of the capabilities of HCL Verse – See Important People, manage tasks that Need Action, and act quickly on top items – to your Android or iOS device.

HCL Verse Mobile delivers intelligent, custom applications for both iOS and Android devices, specifically tailored for optimal usage.

For Apple iOS, the HCL Verse app is available from the Apple iTunes AppStore (one app for both device types: iPhone and iPad). HCL Notes Traveler continues to be available to sync to the built-in mail, calendar, and contact applications, and HCL Notes Traveler and the Verse app may co-exist on your iOS device.

For Android users, the HCL Verse app is available on Google Play (one app for both phone and tablet). An important note for our Android users: The HCL Verse app for Android replaces the previous HCL Notes Traveler app for Android. The previous Traveler app is no longer available in Google Play. The new Verse app connects to on-premise HCL Traveler servers with no changes required. Your administrator is encouraged to always have your organization's HCL Traveler server at the latest maintenance level. For new Verse features not yet available with on-premise HCL Traveler, these are silently and seamlessly removed from the app experience.

To use HCL Verse mobile you must be either:
  • A licensed HCL Connections Cloud or SmartCloud Notes user with your mailbox in the HCL Cloud
  • An HCL Notes Traveler user with on-premises access to your mailbox

If your mailbox is in HCL Cloud and you have a licensed Verse user account, then you will have the optimal experience on your device and can access all of HCL Verse Mobile's capabilities. HCL Connections Cloud and Connections on-premises customers can access specific Verse features as described in the following tables.
