New OnTime Group Calendar 9.1 and Discovery 3 Client Released

The functionality and user friendliness of OnTime Group Calendar is again taking a major leap forward.

The latest release of the Discovery Interface for OnTime Group Calendar is loaded with a host of new features that revolutionize the way organizations manage their time and resources. The Discovery Interface has been part of the standard OnTime Group Calendar entitlement for some time now. As you can see on the graphic below, the interface has improved and is more user friendly. It offers a number of brand new features including advanced search functionality and centralized distribution of the Discovery interface. Even though many organizations have been impressed with the functionality of the previous versions of Discovery the need for local ini files has been an obstacle. IntraVision is pleased to announce that these ini files are no longer needed. With Discovery 3 the settings are saved to a profile in the mail file making them accessible anywhere.

Discovery 3 Client

OnTime Group Calendar version 9.1 released

  New features of OnTime Group Calendar in version 9.1
Support for Discovery 3 All personal settings for the OnTime Discovery client are now stored in your personal mail file, eliminating the need for the discovery ini. This means that OnTime Discovery will always be opened with your settings – no matter which computer you work on.
Reading NAB from alternative domain/server It is now an option to let OnTime read the Domino Directory from another server other than the OTAdmin server. This is particularly useful if the installation is setup using the multiservertask on a dedicated OnTime server configuration.
Faster synchronization using private view “Enable use of views in private Mail database” is a new Group Calendar configuration parameter. Selecting this creates a hidden view in the private calendars containing all calendar entries which makes synchronization faster and reduces the server resource usage.
Deletion of imported holidays in Broadcast Holidays imported from Domino Directory to OnTime Broadcast can now be deleted from Broadcast in one command.
Additional search formulas For each calendar a search formula can setup criteria to specify which calendar entries to synchronize. Formulas can be setup in Icons & Colors covering all group calendars.
Dynamic Groups in OnTime AutoConfig In OnTime AutoConfig, groups can now be created from the value in selected views by setting a formula or selecting a column from databases. An example could be getting this from the Domino Directory.
