Version 2.8.1

IMPROVEMENTS

ONTIME WEB DESKTOP

  • Upgraded the main viewer component. The new viewer has many improvements including:
    - Scalability. Paging i.e. the use of tabs is no longer required
    - Row height is set in increments of 1 between the values of 1 and 9
  • When creating a meeting invitation, it is now possible to click "Find Free Time" which will provide a list of possible time slots for the meeting.
  • New search in the viewer has been added. The new search which allows the user to search for People / Rooms or Resources (All / Name / Title / Company / Location / Department / email) or search for calendar entries (All / Subject / Location / Category / Attendees (email) / Organizer)
  • Fixed several issues in the left group panel.
  • Improved and expanded on the options when selecting who should be the organizer for an entry.
  • Added an OnTime Group Calendar Office Add-ins XML manifest for Outlook. The XML manifest file of the Office Add-in describes how the add-in ís activated. We have included a function to create your own organization specific Add-in XML manifesto file. It is a requirement for the use of an Office Add-ins XML manifest for Outlook, that your organisation uses https.
  • Added a Mail Based Authentication workflow to request a token for OnTime when using the Add-in for Outlook. This is configured from the Admin UI under Global Backend. This is mandatory if you are using ADFS and optional if not. The addition of multiple domains has required some reorganization of the admin interface e.g. the server section has been replaced by a domain section.
  • Added a Mail Based Authentication workflow to request a token for OnTime even if you are not using the Add-in for Outlook.

ONTIME MOBILE WEB

  • URL´s in the location field of the business card can now be launched by clicking it.
  • When creating a meeting invitation, it is now possible to click "Find Free Time" which will provide a list of possible time slots for the meeting.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it.","This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it."],"subject":"My Test Subject"}

WEB ADMIN

It is a requirement for the use of an Office Add-ins XML manifest for Outlook, that your organisation uses https.
  • Added a Mail Based Authentication workflow to request a token for OnTime when using the Add-in for Outlook. This is configured from the Admin UI under Global Backend. This is mandatory if you are using ADFS and optional if not. The addition of multiple domains has required some reorganisation of the admin interface e.g. the server section has been replaced by a domain section.

ONTIME BACKEND

  • We have added support for multiple domains. This means that users in the group calendar can originate from multiple sources. It is also possible to create invitations across domains. It is not possible to create direct entries in calendars for users from other domains than your own. The domains can be a mix of Exchange on-prem and Exchange online(365) domains. In this version sharing of permissions across domains is limited to the default / My Organisation level. On our roadmap is a role system which will allow for a much more granular level of sharing inside and across domains.
  • Java updated to version 8u172
  • Tomcat updated to version 8.5.30
  • sqljdbc updated to 6.4.0.0
  • Improved security in the token model. This could in some cases result in users having to provide user name / password when loginthe the first time after the upgrade.
