OfficeMaps 2.0 has been released and includes new features and a range of bugs fixed. 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.
New Features and Improvements
Search results can be exported - Users are now able to download search results. After entering values to look up in the search box, the list of results will appear in a drop down. Click on the download icon that appears on the right hand side of the drop down to save the results to a file.
Bulk set Home Location - Administrators can now set multiple users' home location from the People option page in a single operation.
Users with Home Locations are more easily identified - Users who appear in the People Panel at a location but who have not been allocated to an asset will appear with a house icon next to their name. Similarly, users with a Home Location who have not been allocated to an asset will appear in searches associated with that location.
Joining search terms - Users performing searches can use the word "and" between search terms to stipulate that all of the text values entered must be present in any search result.
Dragging users between assets - Administrators who are editing a map can click the lock icon which prevents changes to assets and pins. When this mode is enabled, users who have been allocated to an asset can be dragged and dropped onto another asset to change their allocation. Clicking on this lock icon will exit this mode.
Simplified Map Link - Administrators who are editing a map can click on the link icon to view links to a simplified map which shows only the current map image, the assets and the users assigned to them. This can be useful for an organisation's Intranet.
Multiple locations available in kiosks - When changing levels in kiosks users can now select levels at different sites, not simply the current location.
Phone Extension field can be synced from Active Directory - Administrators in OfficeMaps can synchronise the Active Directory Phone Extension field to a user's profile.
User Profile images can be synced from Active Directory - Administrators in OfficeMaps can now source user profile images from Active Directory.
Improved Department Synchronisation with Active Directory - Administrators in OfficeMaps now have greater control of Department synchronisation with Active Directory. This includes the ability to import Departments from Active Directory that have not yet been created in OfficeMaps.
A number of bugs have been resolved including the following:
In Person Administration, deleting a person does not update the licensed user count in header.
Allocations on deleted floors still appear on user profiles.
Cannot delete or move a Pin or Asset that has just been added to a map.
When selecting Check Out from the kiosk menu, the person list should include people from all site levels in the building not just the currently selected site level.
When users with no Launch Page log in, no position in the Location Tree is selected and the map pane appears empty.
