EMS Kiosk App, EMS for Microsoft Exchange

Ability to use EMS for Microsoft Exchange with EMS Kiosk App

As of Update 33, you can use EMS for Microsoft Exchange with the EMS Kiosk App. To use EMS for Microsoft Exchange with EMS Kiosk App, you will need to install Update 33 of EMS Platform Services.

With EMS for Microsoft Exchange installed, EMS Kiosk App users can create, end, and cancel bookings that have rooms linked to Exchange mailboxes. These booking updates will then be pushed to Exchange, and the booking information will be reflected in the organizer's and room's Exchange calendars.

If the connection to Exchange is interrupted while a user is creating an EMS for Microsoft Exchange reservation, the reservation will still be created; however, the reservation information will not be pushed to Exchange. The user will also receive an error stating that the booking was created, but there was a problem creating a meeting in the Exchange calendaring system.

For more information on using EMS for Microsoft Exchange with EMS Kiosk App, see How EMS for Microsoft Exchange Works.

Advanced Availability Functionality

Results were incorrect when using EMS Platform Advanced Availability functionality

For customers using Platform Advanced Availability functionality, the correct number of results was not being returned. For example, when requesting results for page 2, no results were displayed even though the enableAdvancedAvailability parameter was set to True. However, when the parameter was set to False, the correct number of results was displayed for page 2.

Fix: Modified functionality so that when using Platform Advanced Availability functionality, the correct number of results is returned.

Note:

The fix described in this release note only applies to empty results. The issue with resultCount being inaccurate is a known issue and is currently functioning as designed as a trade off of accuracy for speed.
