(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Auto-Create Workflow Issues

When users scanned a QR code to automatically create a booking, several issues arose. Where there was only one process template, they still had to click the "+" button to initiate the booking process. In a fully automated scenario where all field values were defaulted, they still had to click Create Reservation to finalize the booking.

Fix: Modified the automation workflow so users are take directly to the booking process when they must complete some fields, and so that bookings are automatically finalized in fully defaulted scenarios.

Selecting a Process Template After Scanning QR Code Returned Users to Scan QR Code Screen

Create Reservation

Geolocation Issues

When users booked a room and Location Services was turned on, the Distance field was empty and the list of room results was not in order of proximity. On Android devices, when Location Services was turned off, the Distance label persisted and kilometers displayed as "NaN Kilometers;" additionally, the default building/view for the booking template in use was not automatically selected. 

Fix: Modified functionality so that when Location Services is turned on, users can see the distance of a room and the results list is sorted by nearest to furthest, and for Android, when Location Services is turned off, users no longer see the distance, and kilometers and default buildings/views display as expected.

Internal Reference # 2840628596

Internal Reference # 28498

Start and End Times Defaulting Incorrectly

When users booked a meeting too close to closing time (according to booking rules), start and end times defaulted to the same time. Additionally, when booking rules set default meeting duration to 45 minutes after start time, default end time was calculated incorrectly.

Fix: Modified functionality so that template defaults are properly applied and default end times are correctly calculated.

Internal Reference # 2837428332
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Changing Location Turned Off Capacity Filter For Room Search

When users searched for rooms and filtered by room capacity, and then changed location, the capacity filter turned off.

Internal Reference # 28507
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Child UDF Default Values Missing

When a booking template was set to show the default values set for child UDFs and the parent UDFs allowed multiple selections, the default values of the child fields did not display. 

Fix: Modified the display to show child UDF default values of multi-select parent UDFs in this situation.

Internal Reference # 27920
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Edit Reservation

"Room Unavailable" Error When Changing Event Time To Follow Another Event

When users edited an event so that it started immediately after another one in the same room, the error "Room Unavailable" presented incorrectly and their room selection was cleared. 

Fix: Modified validations to allow adjacent scheduling when a meeting has no setup and teardown allowance.

Internal Reference # 28458
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Unable to Add Attendees After Booking Exchange Meeting

When users added attendees to an Exchange-compatible meeting that had not been originally created with attendees, their additions were not saved and attendees were not invited.

Internal Reference # 28456
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Rooms Not Listed Under View

When users edited an event and tapped the View option for a selected room, it was not in the list as expected.

Time Zones

Time Zones Without Designated Abbreviations Displayed as "NULL"

Internal Reference # 28367
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Incorrect Time Zone Adjustment When Changing Event Date

When users changed an event date such that it was after the Daylight Savings Time period for their devices, the event time was incorrectly adjusted.

Internal Reference # 28421
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Room Incorrectly Unavailable When Server Time Zone Was "UTC +00"

Internal Reference # 28607
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Billing & PO Numbers

Default Billing Reference Number Empty When Prompt For Room Enabled

When users booked a room using a template that used a default billing reference number and required/validated the value, the field was empty after they selected a room as prompted.

Fix: Modified functionality so that the default value is retained when the room prompt is enabled in this situation.

Internal Reference # 27602
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Navigation

Android: Back Button Closed Application

When users clicked the native back button from the home screen on Android devices, this closed the application rather than collapsing it.

Internal Reference # 27675
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Home Page Refreshed Incorrectly When Navigating Back From Booking Details

Fix: Modified functionality so that the home page refreshes to today's events when reached using the Back button. 

Internal Reference # 28532
(For EMS Internal Use Only)

Building URL Link Failed

When users clicked on Building URL from booking details screens, the link failed because the ":" character was not being carried over to the web browser.
