  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Transitions between banners

  16. 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.

  17. Display App version in Support emails

    As a member of the IT support team, I would like to receive support emails that contain the app version, so that I can debug issues more effectively

    When a user reports a problem with the app, the phone model is displayed so the iOS vs Android version can be distinguished however the app version is not displayed so if there is a user running an older version of the app it isn't obvious and that could be the cause of the issue or something which has been resolved in the newer version of the app so it would be…

  18. 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…

  19. Help/Hints for the News Feeds Initial Screen

    As an app user, I would like to see a hint in the initial News and Event screen, so that it is clear that I need to choose the feeds I want to view using the Add/Remove option and I am not just presented with a blank screen if I haven't already selected a feed

    When user first opens the News Feeds Menu Option in the app, there is an empty grey screen, which looks very big and very empty on iPad in particular, giving impression that something is not working withing the app.

    It is not very clear that…

  20. Links to a map

    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.
