     The new version is not yet finished, and in the following builds we will present new features that reflect the suggestions of TeamWox Groupware users.

  7. Organization: When viewing the list of requests of a specific organization, a user is shown all the requests that he or she is permitted to see.

    Previously, a user was shown only the requests of the technical service groups in which he or she had the "Full View" permission.

  8. Search Engine: Increased performance when searching for entries in all the modules and when using the filter functions in Task Manager, Service Desk (HelpDesk) and eMail Client.

    The search performance increase is most noticeable with search phrases consisting of two or more words.

  9. Calendar: For the convenience of scheduling, implemented the possibility of coloring activities.

    Color selection will tell you which of the activities are most important.

    The communicative Calendar: coloring activities for events

    When scheduling an event in the general calendar of presentations, color those that you should hold yourself. If the upcoming event in your personal calendar gets an important status, change its color on the information page.

  10. Calendar: To enhance the possibilities of information exchange, implemented import of event details from a *.ics file from your local drive.

    Using the import function in the online collaboration software, you can easily add information about an event, if you receive an invitation by email in the TeamWox groupware system. But in some cases *.ics files can be received in your personal mailbox or saved to a file from one of the websites. Starting with this build you can just easily import data from these files.

    Click "Import" and in the appeared window select a required file with an event. The dialog box contains a preview area where you can see the dates of events. The Import button will show information about the total number of events to be added to the calendar.

    The communicative Calendar: Import events to the calendar

    Select a calendar for new events, depending on their type and category. To select new events, choose a color to mark them.

  11. TeamWox Communicator: To expand the possibilities of information exchange, in the chat dialog added a command for getting the chat link.

    If the problem discussed with a client via the customer support Live Chat (Online Assistant) cannot be solved, you may need to create a request to your colleagues who can help sort out the problem. In the request, specify a link to the dialog, so that they can read the explanations of the client.

    Starting with this build you can get a link to a dialog without having to search for it on the Live Chat pages. Open the box with additional information and copy the link, using the context menu command of the dialog ID.

  12. TeamWox Communicator: In the chat window, added Call and New Chat commands.

    During conversation with a client, you may need to discuss the problem with your colleague so that the client does not see it.

    Click on the colleague's name and, using the appropriate command from the context menu, call him or her or discuss the issue in a new private live chat.

  14. TeamWox SaaS Agent: Expanded the list of supported DNS servers.

    In a new build implemented MS Windows DNS support. If you use a DNS server from Microsoft and are going to deploy a TeamWox SaaS framework, simply specify the name of the computer on which the DNS server is installed and the name of the user with appropriate rights on the Settings page. When installing a new TeamWox Groupware server instance, a domain for it will be registered automatically.

  15. TeamWox SaaS Agent: As suggested by our partners, added a page with the text of the TeamWox SaaS EULA.

    Within a SaaS (software as a service) framework, a new TeamWox Groupware instance is installed by a provider, and not by a client. SO the installer dialog with the license agreement is now shown to the TeamWox user.

    The employee of the company that purchases the online collaboration software from a SaaS (software as a service) provider now sees a page with the EULA before getting started with the system. The user needs to read it and accept its terms. This page will be shown only to the system administrator, who will start working in TeamWox Groupware system using the login and password sent by the SaaS provider.
