Functionalities For Quick Search And New Object Creation
The top bar in Carbonio now includes both the functionality to add new objects (such as emails, contacts, calendar events, and so forth) and to search. For instance, while reading emails, it is feasible to make a new calendar appointment or look up contacts while organising an event on the calendar.
Use Carbonio’s top bar, as seen in Fig. 11, to do this. To create a new item in the module you are now in or to create a new object in another module, click the blue NEW button. For example, when in the calendar, click to make a new appointment.
The search operates in a similar manner: the text entered in the text box may be searched in the module using the white button to the right of the NEW button, whose label varies based on the active module. To do a search in a different module, click the. The Advanced search module offers a more sophisticated search option.
For users, Carbonio Auth
To handle all user-side credentials and features, including account and EAS mobile passwords, mobile app QR codes, and OTP for 2FA, Carbonio Auth has a separate settings page (see Fig. 12).
The right-side menu provides access to the Carbonio Auth settings page. The Carbonio Auth may be used by users without any CLI access.
By creating a new credential, you may grant others access to your account, perhaps including the Zextras Mobile Apps, without disclosing your own credentials.

- Verify the creation status and other details for each credential produced for Exchange ActiveSync and Mobile Apps. The label of the password, its status, the service it is valid for, and its creation date are all displayed next to each entry in the list in each section.
- Verify the status and other details for each One Time Password that has been created. Each entry in this table includes a description, its status, any unsuccessful attempts, and the date it was created.
- Control the 2FA logins. Unless its usage has been enabled or disallowed at COS, domain, or global level, each user may decide whether to impose access via 2FA.

Shared Folders, You (and Your Mobile), and Shared Folders
- A mountpoint referring to a whole account share cannot be synced.
- A shared folder’s subfolder cannot be synced since doing so would result in an incomplete folder tree.
- A read-only share cannot be synchronised because the Exchange ActiveSync protocol does not support the idea of read-only resources. There will be numerous errors and severe discrepancies between the client and the server if a read-only folder is synchronised.
