New Features

campusM Creative Studio

The campusM Creative Studio allow institutions to design content and information pages on various topics within minutes. The Creative Studio uses a simple drag-n-drop interface, as well as out-of-the-box templates to ensure the creation, design, editing and publishing processes are intuitive and speedy.

In addition, the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface enables non-technical content creators to manage relevant and permitted materials, while the Creative Studio advanced features, such as CSS stylesheets, code injections and more ensure the technical-capable staff can push the environment to its full extent.

Key features include:

•    True drag and drop interface to enable all administrators to create engaging, great looking content in minutes
•    Templates to get your content started
•    Many dynamic components to drag onto your page to render engaging multimedia content, such as images, videos and maps
•    Backwards compatible with existing content

AndroidInterface.pngExternal Link out Improvement for Android

To improve the end user ‘seamless’ experience when linking to an external web page from the campusM Android App, we have provided an additional parameter to the campusM URL scheme that hides the navigation overlay that the Android operating system applies to the in-app browser (highlighted in the image).

The new parameter noandroidtoolbar has been added to the openurl scheme. If this is set to Y (e.g. campusm://openURL?url=http%3A%2F%2Fw...droidtoolbar=Y) then the toolbar will be hidden from the user, making the experience more seamless within the campusM App.


With this release, we have removed the shake to view recent menu feature found within the campusM iOS App. This is based on feedback from end users regarding the experience.

Known Issues
