Saturday – March 30, 2019

Unifyed Student – Engage | Release v8.5.1

New Features

RBAC (Role Based Access Control)

With this new feature, admins do not have to rely completely on AD roles. Admins can create ad-hoc groups i.e.. a group with multiple individuals or a group with multiple AD roles and some individuals. By creating these custom roles, admins can assign permissions to each module including create, read, update, delete and other granular permissions applicable to a module. Also, admins can define view permissions for Menu items using custom and/or AD groups.


Messaging Admin

With RBAC it is lot easier to manage and/or create Messaging Admins. Now, admins can create messaging admins and define which all channels can be used by an admin and on top of that admins can restrict a messaging admin to have access to certain groups as target audiences to send messages to.


Places App

With this app, users can view nearby places including Restaurants, Cafes, Libraries, Entertainment, ATMs, Hospitals & Gas Stations.
