Much recent development has been to the mobile application and the web based desk booking tool. Often this work affected the Admin portal but not sufficient to justify release notes. There have now been some more specific changes directly to the Admin portal.
Limit users to one desk at a time
When making desk bookings, users are able to make multiple bookings at the same time. This is by design and caters for valid scenarios (someone needs double space, or is booking on behalf of a colleage). however some clients have asked to restrict this so we have now added a switch that can prevent overlapping bookings.
When activated, users are unable to book multiple desks at the same time. They can still have multiple bookings in a day, just not overlapping.
Integration with Okta identity management
Okta is an identity management system that can be used to control lists of users. This list can then be used to log in to other applications so that users only need to login to Okta and it will then authenticate them against other applications (this is very similar to Microsoft Active directory).
SpaceConnect can now integrate with Okta so that companies using it can access the Admin Site and the desk booking website. Integration for the mobile application is coming soon.
We use OpenId Connect protocol to authenticate users. This is covered at the Okta help website here:
location list sorted alphabetically
Clients may often have many locations. When viewing that list, location were displayed in the order created. This has now been changed to be alphabetical order which is more useful when managing larger lists.
Typo for "Immediataly"
There was a typo on the screen for configuring Meeting room settings. We had the word spelt "immidiately" rather than "immediately". This is now corrected.
