  1. Add timezones to calendars

    Students at home for holidays would like to be able to force a selectable/UK timezone for their calendar.

  2. Hide a tile based on a role

    Hide a tile based on a role.

    I often get asked to hide tile based on role membership such as "first year students" or "final year students".

    For example we use the timetable tile but some courses don't have a timetable and we would therefore like to hide the timetable tile for those students (who are easily identified by course).

  3. Add sitemap.xml file to root domain

    Have the ability to add an XML-formatted sitemap to the relevant site's root domain, e.g. institution-beta.ombiel.co.uk/sitemap.xml. This will allow the beta version (or which ever version of the app you add the sitemap to) of our app to be crawled and audited for accessibility adherence.

  4. Terms of Use should only need to be accepted during first login

    We have had several discussions with campusM about the terms of use. It is not ideal to have users accept the terms every time they log in. We would like this to only happen during the first login process.

  5. Allow the feedback/problem/ideas options to be hidden or better controlled

    As many institutions have their own support desk, there's a growing need to integrate the feedback function in CampusM with these ticketing systems or allow admins to hide from view, so CampusM isn't creating an additional stream of support calls outside of the main system.

  6. Assets versioning controll.

    Would be useful if we could access the folder of assets to do git init etc, so ftp or css access the location of these files. For better control over versioning of files lik css.

  7. New version download prompt

    Detect current version of app and prompt users to download latest version when opening, (either optional or required) to continue using the app - with message to explain why they need to upgrade (potentially editable by institution).

    Would be useful when we've had recent updates to key services/tiles that are not being realised by students with manual updates, whilst ensuring consistency of experience for all.

  8. Restrict Creative Studio templates and components to institutions branded templates

    In Creative Studio the template library should be restricted so that editors can only see and use the branded templates that institutions have created.

    The drag and drop elements should be restricted as well to only show our branded components.

  9. Pass errors directly back from connect layer

    Currently, if the connect layer encounters an error while retrieving data, it passes back an HTML file with an HTTP 200 status code, as in the example below. It would be helpful if instead it would pass the error back to the client directly, with error messages and HTTP error status codes, as a normal web server would.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8"></head>
    <body data-location="/aek/c/dining-menu">

    &lt;div class=&quot;ombl---ajax-container&quot;&gt;
    
    &lt;h2&gt;Oops! Something has gone wrong&lt;/h2&gt;

    <p class="error last-child">Could not resolve host: api.dineoncampus.com.wrong</p>

    &lt;/div&gt;
    

    </body>
    </html>

  10. Image caching

    For some applications we want to be able to download images and display them when the user is offline. In some situations it may already be possible to do this with base64 encoding and dataURIs, but this does not work when the site hosting the images has CORS enabled.

  11. Add token options to Authentication access

    The Authentication access in App Settings offers "Username/Password", "CMAuth" and "None." Options for OAuth2 "Bearer tokens" and JSON web tokens (JWT) would allow us to make API calls using other methods. Thanks!

  12. Analytics on Personalization

    Now that users have the ability to hide tiles, we would like to see analytics on what tiles users (by role) have chosen to hide. IF we find that majority of our users have hidden specific tiles then we know its not important and we can choose to eliminate them. This is important for Feed/banner type tiles where user action (clicks) is not always necessary so tracking 'clicks' will not give you full picture of users that look at these tiles.

  13. Allow the List View to be saved as the default view

    The "arrange" feature allows users to view the tiles as a list, but when they leave the arrange menu or click "Done", it goes back to the tile view. Especially for visually impaired users, I think the list view might be more usable, so it should be able to be saved as their default view.

  14. Allow custom font app-wide

    Currently we cannot make the app on-brand as we've been told that it is not possible to add custom fonts. Can this be added please?

  15. Link to AEK pages from notificaions

    It is possible to link to an AEK menu as per https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/campusM/ProductDocumentation/04Appendices/BWorkingwithAppURLs but strangely not to an individual AEK page in a notification.

  16. Extend the login timeout for App Manager

    App Manager will currently log you out of your session if you are idle for something like 5 minutes or 10 minutes. I haven't timed it exactly, but it definitely feels extremely abrupt. It makes it difficult to configure users permissions since there are so many options to consider, by the time I'm finished delegating permissions to a user I get timed out and all my work is lost.

  17. Faculty Student Real Time Communication

    The heart of student engagement should be the enablement of direct and real time faculty to student communication within the explicit context of a class. Think class cancellations, room changes, emergency notifications, assignment reminders, including quizzes, homework, and exams, last minute class changes and updates, and any important information that the instructor needs or would like to communicate in real time. In addition a communication framework like this would allow students to opt in and communicate with each other as well for classroom discussions and group work without having to disclose their own phone numbers. I am basically proposing a…

  18. Ability to Print a page

    Need the ability for users to print a page from within an app with only the contents. Use case#1: student views his/her class schedule (time table) that lists out all the classes, meeting days, location, etc.
    Case#2: we display unofficial transcript and user needs a hardcopy to provide to their employer or other 3rd party for verification that they are actively taking classes or successfully completed a course.

    Currently if you print out a page, everything that is shown on the screen prints, including header/footer, tiles, and other html elements.

  19. App Design Flexibility - Tile Height/Width by %

    With smartphones getting larger we'd like to be able to use a percentage to size heights and widths. We are particularly interested in tile heights.

    Our design team is currently working on a re-design that has full-width tiles, but with the smallest tile height available there is far too much scrolling to view all options. Attached are some screenshots for reference.

  20. feedback

    Enable an institution to customize the app manager feedback such that it can be redirected to a different feedback solution for ideas.

    The current feedback mechanism is very basic. There is no capability for a user to see if idea an idea has already been posted or to vote on ideas. We want to instead direct users to a feedback portal (like this one) where they can see what other ideas have been raised and vote on.
