AxisTV v.9.5

Improvement to Room Scheduling Features

There is now a single Booking PIN option to prevent unauthorized people from booking rooms on Touch room signs.

If Touch room signs are configured to “EnableBookingPin” in the kiosk.exe.config file, and a Booking PIN has been entered, all Touch room signs will require the PIN when a user attempts schedule changes. If the Booking PIN is empty, any user can apply changes to Touch schedules.

Accommodate Private Appointments in Exchange

Clients now have the ability to exclude and/or hide names of private events when configuring event schedule messages via Exchange. Private appointments can be configured three ways:

  • Exclude
  • Show normally
  • Show under new description (Private)

If private appointments are excluded from the schedule message, availability lights will not change for that appointment.

Other Enhancements

  • Removed size limits for push publication
  • Improved video stream playback
  • EMS adapter event window changed to avoid timeout
  • Various bug fixes

Conference 1.9

Option to Exclude Expired Events on EPS Room Sign Calendars

The EPS output summary now includes a checkbox “Exclude expired events” when the EPS schedule is selected. It is located between the Output Times mask and the Room Filter controls.

New Default Time Range for All Input Sources

Users requested the default range for all input sources be changed for “First Events Starts” and “Retrieve” to guarantee the fetching of all the current day’s events. The Input Sources window now defaults to “1 day ago” for the “First Event Starts” field and “3 days” for the “Retrieve” field.

Improved RoomKeys to Address Character Limits

The EPS export now includes a new RoomKey column that filters characters in the RoomName column, keeping only letters and numbers. (The RoomName column contains either the source room name or a user defined room name.) When the export determines that two or more RoomKeys are duplicates after illegal character elimination, it appends an integer, starting with 1, and increments for each duplicate.

Other Enhancements

  • Improved CollegeNet R25 Integration
  • Test Output Button added for faster troubleshooting
  • More details about import errors
