ONTIME CONFIG

  • In previous versions of the OnTime Group Calendar Mail Cluster support we have relied on a crawler methodology which has proven very reliable. This methodology has the major advantage that it supports both customers running pure on-prem and hybrid IBM mail implementations. However for customers running a pure on-prem IBM Domino implementation, using the existing IBM Domino Cluster directories as a source for information about mail files / paths in each cluster, is often a better and faster solution. We now allow you choose the source from the OnTime Global Settings. For pure on-prem IBM Domino installations, this further has the advantage that the IBM server log, will not contain information about attempts to access mail and other files which the OnTime is not authorised to access.
  • Queue database now includes support for repeated entries
  • Queue system now includes ability to select include / exclude users to increase performance and reduce queue size
  • Queue system sends a “RemoveAll” document if a user´s calendar document has been deleted from OnTime.
  • There is now a link from the user document to the calendar document for the user (“Last sync”)
  • Working hours have been added to the user document
  • The user form has been cleaned up for better usability.
  • It is now possible to issue multiple OnTime console commands in one string, e.g. “tell ontimegc admin u,gs”. Commands will be executed in the order provided, from left to right.

ONTIME MOBILE CLIENT

  • In the mobile client you can use the shared groups but you cannot modify them.

  • Fixed an issue where the OnTime admin task would abort when using Shared Groups in 4.5.0

The following was included in 4.4.2
