    Product Integrations (Web App, iOS, Android)

    We are excited to release our first batch of Product Integrations (PIs). Product Integrations allow you to configure integrations with key university system using campusM App Manager, with no extra cost or need to involve the campusM development team. Product Integrations are part of the monthly release and therefore will be continually maintained and improved with the product, including enhancements, bug fixes, and quality assurance checks. Additionally, Product Integrations offer specific flexible configurations for each product integration that allows you to decide on a specific look and feel and integration behaviors.

    New Product Integrations will continue to be delivered, including integrations around student ID and resource booking over the coming release.

    The following Product Integrations are available for you to configure as part of the March 2020 release:

A common use would be for a university open-house for prospective students, for example.

    See the dedicated Product Integrations page for further information on Product integrations including prerequisites and detailed instructions on how they are configured and deployed.

    Biometric Identification – Activation and Timeout Configuration (iOS, Android)

    You can now configure campusM to allow users to sign in with biometric identification, such as a fingerprint or facial recognition. You can also set a timeout period (in seconds) for which an identification remains valid. After this time, the user is required to be identified again.

    This is configured from the General Settings pane in App Manager > App Settings > Biometric Identification.

    xCode 11 Upgrade (iOS)

    We continue to update the build process to accommodate the latest Software Development Kit (SDK) available from Apple to improve app stability and enable the latest feature sets within our apps. All apps will now be built with Xcode 11.
