  1. 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

              • Overhaul Insight Analytics

                I would like to see a complete overhaul of Insight.

                It is becoming increasingly difficult to develop business cases for justifying work within CampusM without the statistical evidence to show usage, especially for AEK development.

                Whether it is:

                https://logentries.com/insights/mobile-app-monitoring/

                Or:

                http://www.google.co.uk/analytics/

                etc.

                We need to know what users are doing as fine grained as possible. This help show our product owners the value in AEK development. At the moment we can only show that people use the app in general. Not where they came from and where they want to. What screen they stayed on etc. In general, it is…

                • 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

                    The web app can show timetable events on the timetable tile, this functionality should be replicated within the iOS and Android apps.

                    • Support emails, set reply-to field to the user's email

                      Could you please make it so that when a user submits a feedback/problem/idea the email notifications which it sends has the reply-to field automatically set to the user's email address.

                      This would allow these emails to be fead into our Helpdesk system and set to reply to the right user.

                        • QR scanner access in AEK

                          This feature is desirable as currently the user has to navigate menu's in order to access the QR reader.

                          It would be a lot better if we could integrate the qr scanner in the actual screen, providing a seamless user experience.

                          The key deliverable here, would be for the native qr scanner, to return the content contained with in the QR Code.

                          • Should be able to make notes on your timetable.

                            For example, if you have a seminar, you can leave a reminder on your timetable to let you know that you haven't yet answered all the questions etc. Or if you need to pick up some handouts before attending the lecture.

                            • Ability to break out of WebKit browser

                              We need to be able to leave the confines of the WebKit browser & use the standard defualt browser on the students device.

                              See the image attached, Our students are getting confused within their Office 365 Mail as to which is the button to click to go back to their Email inbox, rather than the button to go back to the main menu tiles on the app.

                              Doing this would also give more available space to the Email page or other external webpage, rather than always showing a CampusM branded title bar, back, refresh & share buttons.

                                • Developer API to manage CampusM

                                  Currently there is a lot of manual work involved in keeping the customer roles, app roles, settings, aek screens in sync between different profiles on the Ombiel portal.

                                  It would be great to be able to have an API on it so the manual tasks can be automated on our side; something akin to AWS developer API comes to mind - either REST APIs or CLI or anything else that lets developers / administrators interact with Ombiel so all the tasks like creating roles, AEK screens, managing user / app roles will be much easier and less error prone.

                                    As a user of the Bradford Council app, I would like Council Tax reminders to be included in the push notifications menu so that I can easily set up reminders to pay my Council Tax.

                                    Currently Council Tax reminders may be set up using the Reminders menu, but our Council Tax department would like these reminders including in the push notifications - both in the set up screens when you install the app, and also in the settings>push notifications menu.

                                    This would draw more attention to the Council Tax reminders function, which is something that would benefit all users as…

                                    • Allow the ability to switch off the search facility as it adds no value unless it can search the content.

                                      The search facility on the portal has no real value as it only searches for the tiles which are highly visible. Perhaps search for content would be much better.

                                      • Combined toolbar and menu system for AEK, static content and external web pages

                                        It would be useful to have a way to use toolbars like AEK toolbars and menus like for content pages, but include AEK screens, static content and external web pages together under a combined navigation system.

                                        This could be implemented as an extension to the content menu and AEK toolbar systems, or it could be a new tile type with an improved, integrated navigation system.

                                        • App manager roles tied into AEK

                                          The ability to tie app manager roles into AEK, so we can limit who can edit and publish AEK screens to beta and live respectively.
