Release Notes

Current Release (17.01.2023)

Improvements

  • The whole booking overview has been reworked and optimized and we've improved the user experience. Seat and zone bookings are now shown together in the same list. The visuals have been updated to the current version of our cards like on the "Who is in the office" page. After booking for another user, the booking overview is immediately filtered to that user's bookings. Furthermore, we made a few small bugfixes.
  • Users who have not yet set a primary area are shown a tip after booking to choose a primary area for an even faster booking experience.
  • The booking export now also contains the creation date of the bookings.
Release - 10.01.2023

Improvements

  • Added the currently booked resource information to the smartphone app start page.
  • Resources are now filtered alphabetically on the booking page list.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed positioning of the "no results found" message on the "Who is in the office" page.
  • Fixed an issue, where in some cases the booking date in the confirmation/invitation mail was off by one day.
  • Fixed an issue where in rare cases user deletion was not possible.
  • Fixed an issue where QR codes for resources with very long names sometimes overflowed across the page break.
  • Fixed many small (mostly invisible) bugs and improved general frontend performance and stability.
Release - 22.11.2022

Improvements

  • When uploading new and updated seating plan images, existing resources and their bookings are no longer deleted automatically. Changes in the pixel size/format of the image will however in most cases still require manual repositioning of the resources.
  • The selected primary area is now the default filter on the "Who is in the office?" page.
  • Improved visibility of the selected user on the seating maps.
  • Raised the limit of the exportable lines in the booking export to 10.000 and ordered by booking date, not creation date.
  • To make more space for relevant elements, we removed titles from some pages (Booking overview, Who is in the office).
  • Several general technical and performance improvements.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an issue where sometimes teams were not being displayed on users when there were more than ten teams in one department.
  • Fixed an issue where locations where sometimes missing and not usable for new features in the administration UI.
  • Fixed an issue with older QR codes that failed to scan in the mobile app.
  • The booking list in the administration area now also shows zone bookings.
  • Six more small bugfixes for special edge cases.
Release - 09.11.2022

Improvements

  • Users in Trial accounts now also always need a license to be able to use desk.ly. This allows administrators of Trial accounts to more specifically control which users may use desk.ly, for example for users that were automatically created using a SSO login method (Hint: Disable “Assign free licences automatically” in Licence overview).

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an issue with not being able to book for another user while having already booked for oneself
  • Fixed an issue with the language switching back to German after a Single-Sign-On login
  • Fixed an issue while removing preferred seats
  • Fixed an issue where the check-in prompt on the home page would return even after a successful check-in
  • Improved scrolling speed in the list “Who is in the office” when clicking on a seat on the map
  • Optimized performance of the initial loading screen
Release - 26.10.2022

New Features

  • Administrators can now set the license status of all users in bulk via the user import. A new column has been added for this in the import template.
  • Administrators can now see more detailed meta information when editing users.

Improvements

  • We reworked the map and list on "Who is in the office?". Also, profile pictures (if not available, then initials) are now shown on the seats of most maps.
  • We updated all our icons for a cleaner look and added some new icons in the booking filters.
  • We slightly updated the design of the calendar on the booking overview page to better show which days have bookings and which day is currently selected.
  • We added a row "Active" to the user table in the Admin area to show more easily which users have been activated.
  • Areas in the selection list on the page "Who is in the office?" now sorted alphabetically.

Bugfixes

  • Finally fixed all-day calendar invites for (hopefully all versions of) Outlook.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an issue with redirection to the initially requested page after successful login (for example for QR code links).
  • Companies in Trial or Expired as well as Companies with a licence model (Enterprise) and 0 licences (all legacy companies) can now delete themselves again.
