  1. Alphabetise the roles in the app manager

    Would it be possible to alphabetise the roles in the app manager, when viewing them in the app builder and all other places.

    They used to be an a familiar order, but since the first migration they have changed order, so it is really difficult to find them now.

    So there must be a way of ordering these because you changed the order?

    Ideally it would have "default" at the top, followed by the roles in alphabetical order.

    • Isolating publishing in App Manager to User log-in

      As an app content manager, I would like be able to publish only the content I'm working on, so that I don't accidentally publish unfinished content that other app content managers are updating at the same time

      Currently publishing in the App Manager does not allow different users to publish in isolation of everyone else.  The result is that if several people are working in the App manager at the same time whoever publishes first potentially forces all updates to be published regardless of readiness.

      • campusm:// links available within pocketguide "redirect" field

        As an app content manager, I would like to be able to have the campusm:// links available within pocket guide "redirect" field, so that I can link to content directly from a pocket guide menu

        We'd like to be able to use the campusm:// links inside the 'redirect' field within pocketguides.

        • Ability to upload a spreadsheet into AppManager to set alert population

          In App Manager Alert Group subscriptions page

          https://appmanager.ombiel.com/notifications/CampusM/alertgroupsubscriptions

          You can currently select people individually or as a whole ALL group.
          It would be much more practical to be able to upload a spreadsheet of email addresses to add to the group.

          We often have campaigns or targeted groups that may contain up to 10,000 subscriptions but this is not ALL of the group and searching through the list for 10,000 specific emails is not practical.

          Could you amend this method to allow upload of files which would solve a big problem for us.

          Thanks
          Claire

          • External authentication for App Manager

            As an app manager administrator, I would like to be able to configure the app manager to use an external authentication store (e.g. AD), so that I don't have to maintain a separate user list just for the app manager

            It should be possible to use an external authentication store for access to the App Manager (https://portal.ombiel.co.uk/)

            Having to maintain a user list in oMbiel's DB as well as our main user store (AD) is both a pain and a potential security risk.

            Suggest at least LDAP provision, but should also consider Shibboleth and similar (Open Auth etc.)

              • Ability to customise the Android logo + related logo/brand items

                At the moment there is no way to customise the Android logo this leads to inconsistent visual branding.

                Enterprises/institutions often use logo variations to address official branding guidelines. For example, a restricted space version of the official logo that is mandated to be used when there is little available space. Such restricted space logos often reduce or totally remove typography to avoid issues of logo/brand integrity that occur when only 30 or 40 pixels of square space is available.

                Also, assuming this functionality is added it may be worthwhile to consider placing all the logo and branding (i.e., splash screens…

                  We'd like to be able to reorder the displaying list of the RSS feeds in our news tile. Right now there doesn't seem to be a way to do so. It looks like it orders them according to the order you created them.

                  • Add to the selection of phones available for preview in App Manager

                    Please could the list of phones/devices available for preview be updated in the App Manager.

                    There have been a significant number of larger screen phones released in the last few years and the app manager currently does not render these devices making it hard to see how campusM looks on a large screen.

                    • Tagging for AEK screens and menu options

                      As an app content manager, when updating AEK screens and menu options I would like to see tags that provide details about the type of authentication used, so that I can easily identify whether the content I'm working on belongs in an SSO or LDAP profile

                      As a user of SSO on desktop and LDAP authentication on native apps we have to duplicate our AEK screens as we need subtlely different code in each. This has made use of App builder very error prone as it's not clear whether you're looking at an SSO menu tile or native auth. That…

                        Before publishing any new content, aek etc to the app it would be useful to be able to view a breakdown of what changes have been made since the last publish.

                          Would like to campusM to show local time instead of UTC.

                          We'd also like the ability to change this ourselves as we switch between AEST and daylight savings time.

                          • Ability to order location positions

                            I’ve noticed when updating Positions in the App Manager and these changes are then published the changed position then appears at the bottom of the list in the app. It appears that the positions in the app are ordered in chronological order from least to most recently updated.

                            it should be possible to order the list alphabetically (perhaps by default) or the order should be definable in a similar way to the way the descriptions can be.

                              Since the database migration, the order of the roles has changed in the app builder and whenever roles are listed. It'd be great to have these alphabetically, all the time.

                                On the app builder: https://appmanager.ombiel.com/app-builder

                                It would be great if when you click on a menu option, the menu on the right has a button that allows you to preview the pocket guide info or the AEK screen.

                                • Make App Manager more user friendly

                                  Here's a quick mock of some elements that would make the app manager - app settings easier to use. And also a mock on how to make 'Person roles' more useful.

                                  Rename and reorder group menu items for better daily use.
                                  Three main groups

                                  1. Application set-up.
                                  A once off that can be collapsed and out of the way once done.

                                  2. User management
                                  Profile items order in the only way they can be created and edited.
                                  Profile items rename to be self explanatory

                                  3. Content
                                  Content publishing moved up as it is more highly used

                                    At the moment the Home recent icon displays as 4 blue squares and this does not match our institutions brand.

                                    Can App Manager be extended to pick up the Home recent icon from App Manager, i.e., allow users to add a recents home icon to the Asset Manager and assign it as the Home Recent in App Builder.

                                    Thanks

                                      Allow sorting in the AppManager screens. When these are in different orders on Dev, Test, UAT and Live it makes it more likely an error will occur copying values from one environment to the next. For example if the Profiles are Student and Student SSO in Live and I want the same values in Test but the order is reversed it's more likely I'll copy the wrong value. The more items displayed the more likely this will happen, whereas if the items could be sorted (alphabetically or by sort order) comparing across screens would be easier.

                                        • Device-based home page banners.

                                          We currently add banners into profiles through App Settings > Home Page Banners, as this gives us the ability to link banners in with roles, to give more targeted messages.

                                          We now want to use the "Overrides" function (that I can see in the app builder) to target banners again.

                                          How do we target a banner based on role (through app settings) and device (overrides in app manager)?
