V44.1 Update 31

Release Date: 
January 16, 2019

Patch #: 
201812100

Build #: 
44.1.31000.1586

Important!

Beginning with Update 31, EMS Platform Services is a prerequisite for installing and using the EMS Web App. If EMS Platform Services has not yet been installed in your environment, validate the hardware and software requirements for EMS Platform Services. (If your organization uses the EMS Mobile App, EMS Kiosk App, Google Integration, EMS for Outlook, or SAML authentication, then EMS Platform Services is already running in your environment.)

The EMS Web App has been modified to leverage EMS Platform Services for functionality that returns a list or grid of Available Rooms. This will result in significant, positive performance gains when executing these functions.

Fixes

Description

BR/PO Numbers

Group-level Billing Reference /PO Number Search Not Functioning

When attempting to select a Group from the Reservation Details page, default BR/PO numbers were not pre-populating and the type-ahead search function did not produce a cumulative list of BRs/POs assigned to that Group and/or globally.

Availability Tab

Parameter Value Not Reflected on Schedule Grid on Availability Tab

Fix: Modified functionality so that the Availability tab respects the parameter value configured for "Display in Booking on Schedule View."

Video Conference (VC) Reservations

VC Host improperly Identified When Added as Conflict-Exception in Recurrence
