OfficeMaps 2.2 has been released and includes new features as well as bug fixes. If your OfficeMaps is cloud-hosted, these changes will be available immediately. Simply log out of OfficeMaps, restart your browser and then log in again. If your OfficeMaps is self-hosted then you will need to update your OfficeMaps website following a manual process. Please contact OfficeMaps support if you require assistance with this.
Because there are changes in the login process there may be some important steps that must be taken before and after the update occurs, depending on your hosting scenario. More information about this is available in the following article: 22 July 2018 OfficeMaps v2.2 Pre-release Announcement
New Features and Improvements
Enhanced Login with MFA support - The login process has been completely rebuilt to streamline the experience for users and administrators. OfficeMaps now supports closer integration with Microsoft login methods and can utilise multi-factor authentication to authorise connections. Administrators now define a default login method which makes connecting faster and more intuitive.
Bulk Import and Update of People - Users and their related profile information are now better supported through a file import process. Profile data can also be updated for users who already exist in the system. Excel template files are accessible from within OfficeMaps, providing guidance for administrators using this technique. Finally, more operations which can be applied to multiple users are available including the options to Send Password Reset Email and Update Time Zone.
Azure AD support for the Mobile Application - Users can now sign in to the mobile application use Azure AD.
Desk Allocations can be made by data import - Instead of assigning users to desks and other assets manually it is now possible to perform operations to assign multiple users through the use of an Excel spreadsheet. Excel template files are accessible from within OfficeMaps, providing guidance for administrators using this technique.
Department Links - Links to Departments are now supported. This allows users to directly access and view a specified Department by following a link that is generated as per the links to Site Levels.
Better Account/Payment Visibility - Users can connect to their Customer Portal by using the Subscriptions option within OfficeMaps, making it easier to ensure that payment details are accurate and simplifying the addition of new subscription features as desired.
