Release notes May 2019:

  • Room Displays - Fancy layout:
    • We have removed the 'beta' label, so the Fancy layout is now finalized!

  • Platform/Integration: User synchronization added features
    • The Powershell based user synchronization now has the ability to:
      • Synchronize NFC Identifiers from the ActiveDirectory/AzureAD via the 'ADUserNFCIdPropertyName' parameter
      • You can assign new users directly to a specific role via the 'UserRoleNameForNewUsers' parameter. Just provide the name of the role (as created in the platform) for new users.
      • You now can assign a role to a user in the platform, based on a group membership in the ActiveDirectory. This can be done via the 'GroupUserRoleMapping' parameter. Currently only available for the ActiveDirectory integration.
      • When you filter on e.g. a group, you can now activate that the 'orphaned' users in the platform will be deactivated automatically. This can be done by using the 'DeactivateExistingUsersInSameIntegrationThatAreNotLoaded' switch.

  • Wayfinder - themes:
    • Introducing the white theme for the wayfinder.
      The wayfinder can now also be shown in a white theme. The trusted black theme is obviously also still available.
      You can choose the black or white theme in the wayfinder profile (menu: settings > profiles).

  • Room Displays - Fancy layout:
    • The Fancy display layout has got a major upgrade in layout and ease of use.
      In the past months where we had the Fancy display layout out there in beta, we've received a lot of feedback. With this update we've processed the feedback, and made the Fancy layout even more Fancy!

      We've upgraded the look-and-feel in general, made actions like book now/extend/stop more obvious, and did an overhaul of the timeline on the right of the display.

      Thank you for the feedback this far, and we expect to reach the point that we can  remove the 'beta' label in the coming weeks.

  • Room Displays - Circle layout introduction
    • Introducing the third layout option for room displays, called Circle. 
      Curious? Just try it by modifying your room display profile, and you will see why it's called this way.

  • Platform/Outlook: Outlook plugin beta - updates:
    • Best matching room now is shown on top of the search results.
    • When inviting more people than the selected room's capacity, this will be shown in the selected room as a subtle warning.
    • We're now showing a confirmation dialog when your searching a room, and choosing a timebox which would change the date/time of the appointment.
    • In some cases the automatic counting of people did also include the room(s), this is fixed.
    • Up/down buttons in amount inputs did not work in Outlook for Windows, this is fixed.
