iOS Webview Upgrade
We upgraded to WKWebView, the latest version of WebView, that enhances the end user experience and stability of the app generally.
Given the scope of this change and the impact that the migration to this new enhanced class may have, we have extended the preview of this change for the August 2019 release preview. Please take time to review the impact that this change may have on your content.
Why Did We Upgrade to WKWebView?
What Did We Change in the App?
- SSO login page
- CMauth login page
- campusM Homescreen
- AEK screens
With an increasing number of customers using campusM as their primary student portal for both mobile and on the Web (desktop, laptops etc.), we have redeveloped the Web app homescreen to provide a more traditional portal-like view, with left-hand side navigation, bread crumbing, and full-page display.
- Text format and alignment
- Text Size and Weight
- Menu color and spacing
- Icons and their placement
Notification Center Enhancements
We have made a number of enhancements to our new Notification Center:
If you hover over the notification title, a preview of the message title and body appears to make it easier to check the notification content in the Notification Center:
Notification Edit and Resend
Scheduled Notification Delete
Notification Expiry Date
campusM Native Timetable Display Enhancements
As part of the preparation for the campusM WCAG AA 2.1 reaccreditation, we have made a number of enhancements to the labeling of interface elements to improve the experience when using screen readers or other accessibility technologies on the native apps and the Web app.
iOS 13 Developer Beta Crash Fixes
As part of our preparation for the coming release of iOS13, we are testing the Developer Beta versions that have been made available by Apple.
We identified and resolved several issues with the current version of the campusM app and resolved these in this release. This was also patched to the August release. Customers were advised that we are releasing the August update for iOS and Android for all customers unless requested otherwise.
