ONTIME DESKTOP CLIENT
- Delegating Access Using OnTime Roles. This version introduces the ability to delegate access using OnTime Roles. With OnTime Roles you can centralise the delegation of roles to the administration; meanwhile, users will still be able to grant personal access to specific people or departments. Roles add to rights already delegated to the user by other users, i.e. the rights are accumulative.
- To support the new role system, we have introduced a new type of groups "Linked AD Groups". These groups are a way of pointing to an AD group, where the group name was not previously added to the system. The members of the Linked group in OnTime will only be those members of the AD group that have already been added to the system by a domain profile. The new Linked Groups can also be made available to users in the UI, and they are not restricted to only being used with the Role system.
- Work with Formatted Text, Images, and Files – Directly from the OnTime Interface. We have added a new HTML editor which lets the user edit the description/body field of an entry. In previous versions of OnTime, it has been possible to include an unformatted text description at the time of the creation of the entry. In 6.1 it is now possible to create a rich text, formatted version of the description field. The field can include images and files can be attached.
- Private groups are now sharable, which means that for any new or existing private group you can choose to share it. If you share the private group, you can choose who can use the group (Shared with) and who can maintain the group (owners).
- Accept/Decline Meetings from the OnTime UI. OnTime introduces the possibility of responding to invitations directly from OnTime. Additionally, this feature lets secretaries manage meeting invitations on behalf of others through the Single Person View mode.
- Edit accepted subject/location of invitations (meetings)
- In 2018 Oracle announced that they would not post further updates of Java SE 8 to its public download sites for commercial use after January 2019 unless customers had a commercial support contract. To stay current and avoid further licensing costs for our OnTime customers, we have upgraded the Java version to Java 11 and further, we make use of the Open JDK which is free to use.
- OnTime now supports both LDAP and LDAPS. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is used to read from and write to Active Directory and is by default transmitted unsecured. You can make LDAP traffic confidential and secure by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) / Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology. The secure transport is now supported in OnTime. This requires that you have installed a properly formatted certificate from either a Microsoft certification authority (CA) or a non-Microsoft CA.
