EMS Platform Services added as a calendar type

EMS Platform services has been added as a calendar type in the Connect Room Manager. Clients must configure their client account with EMS Platform Services and register a user within that client account so that it will work with two-way booking.

“Max Future Booking Time” Options Revised

“Max future booking time” choices in the Layout Settings workflow have been reverted to hourly selections.

Minimum Allowed Text Length Revised

The minimum allowed text length has been changed to one (1) character for all non-optional text values, except user password.

Local XML Schemas Implemented

Local XML schemas have been implemented to allow the Java Spring framework to initialize in the absence of internet access. This alleviates the need for customers to grant internet access to the Connect Room Manager in order for it to initialize and start up.

Security Enhancement

All credentials and URLS from the back-end data adapters that were written in PHP, which is clear text, have been removed.

Other enhancements:

  • “Show Next Meeting” Now Works with Google Calendar
  • “Meeting Attendant” Now Works with Google Calendar
  • Various bug fixes
