What's New in 8.0?
- A Brand-New Admin Client
> Replaces the previous Silverlight based configuration tool. The tool served us well for many years, but since Microsoft announced end of support for Silverlight, we decided to take it to the next level, and leverage the most modern technologies to build a brand new admin tool. As a result, Basic Users, Business Unit Admins, and even Global Admins are now all able to use their preferred web browser to work with DW8:
> Microsoft Edge (Chromium),
> Google Chrome, and
> Adds localization to additional languages. Besides English that has been always supported, the admin tool now also comes with localization to the following languages:
> Canadian French
> Adds a Log Browser – another help to administrators and support teams. The web-based UI of DW8 now comes with a list of available logs, and org admins can download those without having to login to the 2Ring server/VM.
- Texting (SMS) and IM Notifications/Alerts – DW has been able to send out email alerts for some time, but with DW8, real-time alerts can be delivered via many new channels and these alerts are also highly configurable:
> Cisco WebEx Teams – here is an example using our DW notification space:
> Microsoft Teams
> DW Layout Banner – yes, alert can automatically pop to a marquee/ticker in DW8
> MMS – EZ Texting
> Texting - SMS Gateways from:
- Power Tool
> We have recently introduced the 2Ring Power Tool, which allows users to place a small (and even personalized) wallboard layout anywhere on their desktop. It always resides on top of all windows, keeping your agents and supervisors continuously informed. Check out a short demo of the 2Ring Power Tool below and see for yourself how highly customizable this newly introduced application really is.
- Some other minor yet useful enhancements:
> A single user can now be a manager of multiple BUs.
> The scrolled position in the layout list is now remembered.
> Users can now use self-service to change password.
> Using .net core 3.1 in all APIs.
