FEATURE UPDATES

Features Description Impact/Outcome  
Updated Appspace Login Page During the initial release of the Appspace Login page, Appspace deployments that use both SSO and Appspace credentials, required users authenticating with Appspace credentials to switch to the classic login page.

This has been fixed with the current login workflow, allowing the system to detect automatically which credentials are being used to authenticate Appspace, and redirect the user to the appropriate login screens.

The need for users to switch to the classic login page in order to authenticate with Appspace credentials is no longer required.

CARD UPDATES

1 April 2022, Friday

Build 8.1-ac.28

FEATURE UPDATES

Features Description Impact/Outcome  
Support for Language Localization on the Employee App The Appspace Employee App portal now supports language localization in various parts of the employee app UI, such as menu items, buttons, and system messages to be displayed in the user’s selected language.

In this first phase, only French, German, and Spanish languages are supported.

Language localization options are available when you click the user profile icon and then Settings > Language on the Employee App portal.

But in this release, this feature will be behind a feature flag. Customers must contact a CSM to enable it and only then they will see the Language option.

Support for SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management) & HRIS (Human Resources Information System) The SCIM compliance enables customers to leverage their HRIS and IdP (identity provider) systems as a source of record to create/import their own user attributes, leveraging Appspace’s integration capabilities that allow user-defined attributes to be created and mapped to external data sources.

We currently only support SCIM integration with Okta and Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) IdPs for automatic user provisioning.

Advantages of using SCIM are it allows both provisioning and de-provisioning of users, and provides greater flexibility in targeting content, creating groups, and applying security measures, in multi-domain scenarios via a standardized service.

This is an alternative to using JIT & SAML to provision users.

Updated Appspace Login Page The Appspace login page sees a minor facelift with updated colors, fonts, and streamlined status messages on-screen.

In the backend, the login process now allows users to authenticate via the new login workflow that supports SCIM.

Enhancements to Zones (Neighborhoods) Introducing Zones (neighborhoods) as a resource type. Zones will now appear as a resource in your selected floor.

System Icons Update All system icons within the Appspace console are being updated to a 2px/24 grid style for standardization. No name changes occur. But some icon sizes are expected to change.
Employee App Portal Theming Options The Theming Options button has moved from the Employee App portal dashboard to the Appspace sidebar menu in the console.

Visitor Management General Availability (GA) The Appspace Visitor Management system has been officially released and enables employees to leverage the Appspace Space Reservation system, the new Visitors module in the console, and the Appspace Employee App to invite visitors (external users) to meetings or events held in their organization.

The Visitor Management feature, which has been in Limited Release, is now available to the public.

For more information, refer to the Configure and Manage Visitors – Administrator article.

Space Reservations: Update to Notifications  Additional notifications will now be sent to organizers and attendees when the following conditions are met:
  • Notifications are sent when there is a change of date or time of an event, via email or enterprise messaging if enabled.
  • Invite notifications are sent to attendees newly added to an event.
  • Invitation canceled notification is sent to attendees who have been removed from an event.
Previously notifications were only sent when an event was created or deleted.

If the “on-behalf” feature is turned on, then notifications will be sent if creating/editing from a calendar  provider.

Notifications will be sent automatically, only when the Organizer is an Appspace user. 

Space Reservations: Zombie Meetings  The Zombie Meetings feature allows administrators to set a new constraint to auto-delete or send a notification to the meeting organizer, when zombie meetings (unattended meetings) occur, with the option to set when the constraint will be triggered (i.e. cancellation of multiple consecutive meetings after X number of times). When an organizer sets recurring meetings, but does not check-in resulting in auto-cancellation for that date, and this is repeated X number of times for the same meeting, then all the recurring meetings are either auto-deleted or a notification is sent to the organizer.
