The next OneCampus release is planned for the early morning on Thursday, September 20, 2018. No downtime is anticipated.
This release will contain bug fixes, accessibility improvements and the following key enhancements:
- Regroup Connector
- Headings within Task Centers
- Permission Group for Branding
- Roles now displayed on the Users Report
- Option to display one Global Announcement at a time
- More apparent home option on the Simple Main Page
- Store Task Count now enabled for Pinned Sections
- Local URL’s now allowed in the Task URL field when creating or editing a Task
Did someone say new connector? We are happy to announce that with this release the connector between OneCampus and the Regroup Mass Notification service will be available! This connector works much the same way as our popular Rave connector and consists of the ability to automate the configuration of RSS (Rich Site Summary), CAP Alerts (Common Alerting Protocol) and Private messages from Regroup and post them in OneCampus. OneCampus Administrators will find the configuration page for this connector located within the Connectors module. A special thanks to North Idaho College for partnering with us on this important connector!
Remember last release when we added headings within Pinned Sections and everyone said “Hey, what about Task Centers!”? Well, we heard you and the wait is over! Beginning with this release, OneCampus Administrators will now be able to add headers within Task Centers in order to visually separate content. The field to add headers will be located beneath the Display Order (drag & drop area) when adding or editing a Task Center. Simply type a header, click the plus sign to add it to the Task Order field and then drag and drop the headers into the desired location to separate your tasks.
Let the branding begin! OneCampus Administrators will now be able to grant access to the Branding module through Permission Groups. This will come in handy for example if you would like to grant Branding only access to members of your Marketing Team. Within the Permission Groups module there will now be a new checkbox for Branding. Once selected, the user/group will be allowed to edit Branding for the tenant. Now everyone gets a slice of the pie in OneCampus.
*Once properly configured, the end user would see Branding options from the Publishing menu upon login.
Because we love simplifying life, coming in this release you will also be able to add local URL’s (for example: https://rsmart:8080) to the Task URL field when creating or editing a task. Previously, adding a local URL to the Task URL field resulted in an error.
Last Spring we introduced customers to the Users Report as a way to see useful data about end users such as date of last login, number of logins, number of favorites and various preference options. We received feedback that adding role data to this report would be the icing on the cake! Starting with this release two additional columns within the report will list user selected roles and SAML roles. In order to see data populated within the SAML roles column, customers must pass the SAML roles to OneCampus. This includes configurations for the Role Assignment Map setting and choosing a Role Assignment Option. Rollllll out.
Ever wish you could get your end users to focus on one Global Announcement at a time? Coming in this release we have added a new Advanced Setting called Global Announcements Count that will allow OneCampus Administrators to decide whether they want to unveil 1, 2 or 3 Global Announcements on the main page at any one time. End users will still be able to click through all of the announcements using the right and left pointing arrows.
For schools interested in using our Simple Main Page, we have made the sign in button more obvious for your end users by adding a small house icon. As Han Solo would say, “Chewie, we’re home”.
By popular request, the Advanced Settings for “Store Task Count” and “Task All View Count” will now work within Pinned Sections. After this release, the see more button will be visible within the Pinned section area if the number of tasks within that Pinned Section exceeds the count number that has been designated within Advanced Settings. When you hit the see more button within a Pinned Section with no headers, it will act like any other section and incrementally display additional tasks. However, if the Pinned Section does contain headers, hitting the see more button will display all of the remaining tasks on the next page. So let’s drop it like it’s hot.
