  1. 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…

      • 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.

        • Campus Maps | Add support for .pdf

          It would be great if we could use PDFs for the campus maps, rather than .png or .jpeg - better quality for a smaller file size etc...

          • 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.

                    • Council Tax push notifications

                      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.

                              • 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.

                                  • 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.)

                                    • Launch screen button - content quick view from app builder when selecting menu options

                                      As an app content manager, I would like to be able to preview the content associated with a given menu option in the app builder, so that I don't have to switch to other screens to check what content is set up

                                      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.

                                      • Enhanced Search facility

                                        As an app user, I would like be able to search across a specific set of content and see more details in the results, so that I am presented with more meaningful results

                                        1) New custom URL scheme that will allow you to launch an enhanced search screen from anywhere (menu options, AEK pages etc.)

                                        2) In the enhanced search, the results need to be styled and provide more details (i.e. result cards)

                                        The enhanced search could be an alternative to the existing main search that covers all the content in the app (locations, pocket guides, alerts etc.) but we originally thought…

                                          As an app user, I would like to be taken directly to a map, so that I can view the map for a specific area rather than having to choose the map from locations for the area I'm interested in

                                          It would be good to have a link like this:

                                          campusm://uniloc?posCode=XX 

                                          But that instead opened the whole map.
