  1. Ability not to allow users to send empty problems

    Can we add an error message to prevent app users reporting problems without selecting any option from the drop-down or entering text.
    The app admins can avoid having problems without descriptions.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow <input type="file">

    We've created a couple forms in the AEK that would benefit from the ability to upload a file, such as a camera photo. We already have it working for the web interface, but it doesn't work in the Android App or the iOS App. When I click the File button, nothing happens.

    We were told to submit an Idea for this functionality as it may requires that the app request basic native functionality to allow file uploads. We are doing this work via the AEK, so that's why I selected this category. Modify as needed.

  4. Extend campusM URL schema to launch iOS, Android OR web app

    Hi,

    Given that campusM is device and platform agnostic. I would like to be able to use the campusM URL schema under a tile to provide mobile/tablet users with the option to launch a mobile app (iOS or Android or prompt to get the app as is now the case) AND also provide the option to go to a web app instead if preferred.

    This would give users choice. For example, Outlook 365 and Blackboard web apps have far greater functionality and have quite a good responsive design for small screens. Mobile/tablet users should be able to choose if they…

  5. Show location of next activity/lecture on timetable live tile

    As well as lecture title and time, show the lecture location on the live tile for timetable - this way students may be able to attend the upcoming lecture/event with only the glance from the home screen.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Ability to SSO from native app to external browser

    We currently utilise the CampusM native in-app browser for our LMS system, and we are finding several functionality lacking/not supported with the in-app browser.

    Our LMS system allows for:
    - Downloading of video lectures to the user's local device
    - Downloading class materials to the user's local device
    - View captured videos lectures at different playback speed

    The above is currently not possible with the in-app browser and we generally find an external browser to provide a much richer experience for our students, our LMS team can provide confirmation that all major external browsers works best with our LMS system.…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. App manager API

    Can we have an API for doing certain tasks in the app manager. For example, for process automation, it'd be great if we could access the asset manager via an api, rather than through the web gui.

    for example, if we have bulk map data, that we extract from our map datasource, and we automate the process of uploading the map data, it would make our automation much less risky, if we can call an api to create and/or remove folders from and upload position images to the asset manager.

    This would remove my automation from relying on screen clicks…

  14. Add the ability to customise connection messages on devices

    Can we have ability to create customsed connection error pages while opening the modules when there are internet connection problems?

    Those messages will be more user-friendly then a simple "No Connection" message on connection error page.

  15. 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?

  16. Allow roles to be assigned at the pocketguide content/link level

    Roles are only available at the tile level. This has presented challenges to how we can organize content and is putting incredible pressure on our home screen real-estate.

    We cannot organize into hierarchical buckets and are forced to organize around roles. Breaking up content does not help the user's experience. If we make multiple tiles to target each at a role, then we have redundancy if a person carries both roles.

    Additionally, some links are not critical enough to warrant a first-click presence and should be nested.

  17. 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.

  18. Personalised Service Outage Page

    The error page that is displayed to students in the event of a Service Outage needs some work to make it useful (if this ever happens again).

    If possible it would be more useful to have a University branded page that provides our students direct links into our core underlying applications ..... such as LMS, Student Management System, LCS and also contact details for our Service Desk.

    The message that the service is currently available with no other calls to action or options was not helpful to the student population.

  20. 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.
