  1. 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.)

  2. Enable notifications to be sent either as push or non-push notification

    Currently push notifications can either be enable, or disabled. If they are enabled, then ALL notifications are pushed (i.e. showing up on lock screen), if disabled, then ALL sent out notifications are in-app notifications (only showing in the tile counter when you open the app). It would be good to have a setting while creating a notification where you could select to either send it out as a push notification, or send it out as an in-app notification.

  3. Send notifications to list of e-mail addresses / student names

    Please look into the possibility of optimising the notification functionality, so that notifications can easily be sent to individuals based on name / Id / e-mail address, rather than groups. The only way to currently do this is to manually search for a name / e-mail, and add users 1 by 1, but we'd like the ability to do this as a bulk add, based on a list of multiple inputs.

  4. Ability to remove/hide search/share/feedback functionality

    there is currently no way to remove or hide the native search, share, or feedback functionality. We would like to have the ability to remove or hide these native functionalities altogether, as the University has its own search and feedback mechanisms. Having these native CampusM functions always visible increases confusion with students, and ensure difficulty with our business processes, as we have to manage more different sources/functionalities for students.

  5. Ability to upload a spreadsheet into AppManager to set alert population

    In App Manager Alert Group subscriptions page

    https://appmanager.ombiel.com/notifications/CampusM/alertgroupsubscriptions

    You can currently select people individually or as a whole ALL group.
    It would be much more practical to be able to upload a spreadsheet of email addresses to add to the group.

    We often have campaigns or targeted groups that may contain up to 10,000 subscriptions but this is not ALL of the group and searching through the list for 10,000 specific emails is not practical.

    Could you amend this method to allow upload of files which would solve a big problem for us.

    Thanks
    Claire

  6. notification groups

    we are in the process of integrating our emergency messaging platform to campusm so any message sent in an emergency will be pushed to "notification/alerts" within campusm. The limitation is getting membership into notification group, as a community college we have large population of students changes almost on a daily basis so it is not feasible to add students to groups manually.

    we would like to have group enrollment be dynamic, tied to "roles" so membership is maintained without human intervention

  7. Overhaul UI/Features for Alerts

    The current UI for Alerts could improved dramatically to allow dynamic group creation.

    A great example of an intuitive UI for communication is:

    http://www.whispir.com

    This is an SMS based communication platform but the UI could work the same.

    The second part of this work should include the ability to create on the fly role/attribute based groups to send alerts to. At the moment the process for creating a group is too complicated and not straight forward enough for administrators to do.

    Thanks,

    Liam Bennett

  8. Enable dynamic parameter for URL of tiles.

    Enable dynamic parameter for URL of tiles (ex pass a parameter from the user context in the URL).
    For either RSS or Link tiles.

    ex : http://a.b.com/open&name=[username]&token=[jwttoken]

  11. Scheduling for app publishing

    the work flow is a simple one our user add content

     App Setting > Content > any content area

    For this to be available in the app you have to go to

     App settings > Publish Content > select all the All options

    As you only want to publish content when you are ready, and we have many authors. We have a process that says we publish at 8am and 12 noon. But a human has to do this.

    I would like it to be automated so we can schedule content publishing.

  12. Allow the exporting and importing of the appmanager settings between environments

    We should be able to export and import the app manager settings/configuration between the development and live environments.

    This would allow us to keep the two environments in sync and also allow us to test in development and then sync it to live without the possibility of human data entry errors.

  13. Review changes before publishing

    Before publishing any new content, aek etc to the app it would be useful to be able to view a breakdown of what changes have been made since the last publish.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Ability to customise the Android logo + related logo/brand items

    At the moment there is no way to customise the Android logo this leads to inconsistent visual branding.

    Enterprises/institutions often use logo variations to address official branding guidelines. For example, a restricted space version of the official logo that is mandated to be used when there is little available space. Such restricted space logos often reduce or totally remove typography to avoid issues of logo/brand integrity that occur when only 30 or 40 pixels of square space is available.

    Also, assuming this functionality is added it may be worthwhile to consider placing all the logo and branding (i.e., splash screens…

  18. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. Allow for App Builder only (non-user-facing) menu option description

    When we have to create two version of a tile (such as LDAP vs. SSO or Mobile vs. Web) there is currently no way to label the menu options in App Builder without that showing up in the app itself. Clients don't want students to see "Library (LDAP)" at the top of the AEK screen, but it is helpful to have the designation visible on the backend when making changes or assigning menu options to the right roles/profiles.
