    • Add option of using OAuth as an authentication method

      We would like to see the introduction of OAuth as a method of authentication for the Portal and mobile apps in addition to SAML and LDAPS.

      OAuth provides a method for users to grant third-party access to their resources without sharing their passwords. It also provides a way to grant limited access (in scope, duration, etc.).

      OAuth also offers direct handling of non-website services. OAuth has built-in support for desktop applications, mobile devices, set-top boxes, and of course websites.

      We believe it may offer a solution to our issue of having to run both SAML authentication for our portal/desktop site…

      • 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.

          • Enable Deep Linking in the applications

            Enable deep linking into the apps so that we could use the functionality to not only link to content within the app via a url but also so that we can use it open the directly from other places such as Facebook app pages.

              • Impersonation Function

                Allow impersonation - so a user would be able to 'impersonate' another user by entering their email address, then for a limited time in the app the impersonated email address would be returned instead of their own.

                  • Closer integration between Maps and DisabledGo data

                    Currently we have a maps/locations tile and a DisabledGo tile. I see the DisabledGo information as an extension to the locations as much of the 'initial content is the same (Categories and location names).

                    It would be beneficial to use the standard maps functionality and see the access information (from DisabledGo) embedded at the point of clicking on a particular location.

                    Currently a workaround is to use Position Actions to link to DisabledGo information in the app, but I would rather the user stayed within the same section of the app to see this information quickly.

                    • Sync timetable events to native and Office 365 calendars

                      The most frequent request we receive from students is to sync timetable events to their native and Office 365 calendars.

                      Whilst this falls outside of the scope of the campusM platform, it is clearly a complementary service which will be of commercial benefit to Ex Libris and will ensure customers maximise ROI on their campusM investment.

                        • Order Customer Roles Alphabetically

                          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.

                          • App manager - content editor - automatic position links

                            In the old app manager content editor you could highlight text and select a link button, which would then allow you to create the action of opening a page or more importantly to a campus map position.

                            In the new app manager this really useful function has been taken away, so you need to manually use links with page numbers. Which you need to dig around and find by inspecting web page code. This is very time consuming and a step backwards on the old app managers functionality.

                            e.g manual code: <a href="uniloc://?posCode=50433">Shop,</a>

                            However the answer is already there/here. The…

                            • Add id's to elements to make automated testing easier

                              We use Selenium to automate our integration tests, in order to identify elements on the page we are currently having to rely on CSS selectors, but these are brittle and subject to change.

                              For example to automate the login process we can navigate a browser to:
                              https://portal.test.canterbury.ac.uk/campusm/home#select-profile
                              then to click a profile we were using
                              body > div.modal > div.modal-body > div > div > ul > li:nth-child(1) > a
                              to select the Student profile, but changing the order of elements breaks our tests and it seems that the underlying markup has also changed so now the Student profile is…

                              • Allow labels for AEK screens that are not displayed to end users

                                We would like a way to distinguish between AEK screens / menu options that are named the same.

                                We have identically named screens / menus because we have SSO and non-SSO versions of the tile and we don't want to confuse our students by having different names for the same logical tile just because of the way it's delivered i.e. device or web page.

                                It's a problem for us because when trying to tie roles to a screen it's really hard to know which version of the screen to use.

                                    When I look at my timetable in week view and I scroll down to the Friday section (for instance), I can click on an event and I can see the relevant details, however when I go back to the week view, the list has scrolled to the top again.

                                    My suggestion is to have the list remember its position before an event is clicked, and then on returning to the list view from the clicked event, have the list remain in the position it was in before clicking the event, rather than returning to the top of the list again.

                                    • Automate replication of content & AEK between environments

                                      To maintain a robust test strategy we need to replicate our current live enviroment onto our test environment however the only way to do that is through a manual process. If this could be automated it would be a far quicker and simpler way to keep environments aligned and up to date

                                        Enable background geolocation services for certain functionality to remain active while the app is backgrounded.

                                        • Location URLs

                                          Being able to include URLs in the "Locations" feature on the app that link out to other webpages that provide more information. E.g We hold locations within the app on Recycling centres but this just gives the address, if we cna include a URL that links to our web here we can also be sharing open times, information re what is classed as recycling, what can be used etc. That way we don't have to replicate all the information in the app as well as the app but still gives people access from one location to key service information
