  1. Add option of using OAuth as an authentication method

    We would like to see the introduction of OAuth as a method of authentication for the Portal and mobile apps in addition to SAML and LDAPS.

    OAuth provides a method for users to grant third-party access to their resources without sharing their passwords. It also provides a way to grant limited access (in scope, duration, etc.).

    OAuth also offers direct handling of non-website services. OAuth has built-in support for desktop applications, mobile devices, set-top boxes, and of course websites.

    We believe it may offer a solution to our issue of having to run both SAML authentication for our portal/desktop site…

  2. Even a position’s longitude and latitude given by the web service, the native directory search component can only perform a Google / Apple M

    Even a position’s longitude and latitude given by the web service, the native directory search component can only perform a Google / Apple Maps search based on the text of the address which is on the service. As a result of it Google / Apple Maps
    returns wrong result. It would be great yo use position’s longitude and latitude.

  3. Formatting error

    Depending on the number of tiles and their sizes determines if a gutter/border is added to the left and right sides of the iOS app or not. Ideally this would be consistently displayed or not (our preference is that is isn't) - or for this to be optionally turned off or on.

  4. Impersonation Function

    Allow impersonation - so a user would be able to 'impersonate' another user by entering their email address, then for a limited time in the app the impersonated email address would be returned instead of their own.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. Notification Navigation

    User request:

    "Include up/down or previous/next options when viewing notifications so as to improve ease of navigation, by preventing the user from having to open a notification then press their "back" button to return to the list of notifications in order to view the next one"

  8. Home Page Banners - Swipe interface

    As an app user, I would like to be able to swipe through banners, so that I don't have to wait for a specific banner to come around again before I can select it

    As well as just having the banners scroll through in a defined order - give users the ability to 'swipe' through them, rather than waiting for a banner to come around again.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.)

  11. 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…

  12. Transitions between banners

    As an app content manager, i would like to be able to have more control over the transitions between banners

    Give options for transitions between banners (fade etc...) rather than the slide in from left.

  13. 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.

  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. 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.

  18. Web based locations delivery

    As a portal user, when linking to a location I would like to see the full details of the location (image, text, description and position actions) rather than showing the location pinned on the map

    Is it possible to have the web based locations delivery styled to more of an iOS delivery? So when an location is linked to, you see the image, text, description and position actions and then have the option to view it on the map.

  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…
