Zextras Suite 3.1.10

Zextras Suite 3.1.10 has been released. Here are all the new and updated features including the Beta features.

Customers can upgrade the Zextras Suite by logging into their account on our website in an accessible self-service mode.

Drive Responsiveness

Big will not beat small anymore, it will be the fast beating the slow.

Drive needs much less time to perform each task that includes everything directly or indirectly related to Drive such as,

  • Browsing,
  • Opening files,
  • Attaching files to e-mails,
  • etc.

The importance of responsiveness will be clear even more when the users share a lot of files each day. The user experience will be improved which leads to better productivity and time management.

Team Privacy Settings

Sometimes little details have massive impacts on privacy.

The administrators can now decide to display or hide any of the following information:

  • Online presence (Online Last Online Is writing status)
  • Message acknowledgment (When the receiver has read sent messages)

Therefore, the administrators can apply the company’s policies if there are any restrictions regarding exposing this information.

Using this feature an administrator will be able to choose whether all users or users of a specific COS can see the online presence and message reads of the others that can be considered confidential in some companies. This can be done using the config attributed teamHideMessageReads and teamHideUserPresenceUpdates.

Conversation Cleanup

Give users the power to tidy up their chats.

Users can now clear the chat history of a conversation. Deleting these messages doesn’t affect the history of other participants so the users can easily concentrate on important messages without being worried about changing others’ chat history.

This can be done by Clear History button available in:

  • One to one conversations,
  • Groups,
  • Spaces,
  • Channels.

Zextras-Team-Clear-History-Confirmation

A warning is also shown to notify the user that cleanup was completed successfully.

Meeting Start and End Time

Always keep track of your important meetings.

Now it is possible to see when a meeting started and when it ended as two time-labels inside the conversation messages. Users can see the start time of the meeting when it starts as Meeting started at hh:mm and the end of the meeting after it ends as Meeting ended at hh:mm. These timestamps remain available in the conversation history. Date and time are based on the device’s local timezone.

Call Waiting Tune

Now the user who starts a meeting hears a waiting tune until the next participant connects, so the user notices when the call starts and also helps them to be sure about the connection. A three dots animation is also displayed in conjunction with the tune.

This includes all the meeting form:

  • One to one conversations,
  • Groups,
  • Spaces,
  • Channels.

New Visuals

Now the conversation items are updated to be visually more pleasant, including:

  • Color of bubbles
  • The background color of quotes
  • Shadow of bubbles
  • Background of service message

in order to improve clarity and user experience even more.

Meeting Speakers List​​​​​​

Speakers List is one of the features of Team. With the new update of the Speakers List, the users better understand who is currently speaking. There is an indication on the upper-right corner that shows the users’ names when they speak. The list now includes the users themselves to help them understand whether the other participants hear them.

Generally, in the cinema mode, when you pin a user, the names will be displayed on the Speakers List when they speak and in the grid mode, a green border around the user’s video indicates that they are currently speaking. With the new update, in the cinema mode, when you talk, you see yourself in Speakers List as “You“. This helps to have feedback on whether the other participants hear you.
