In the past months we have been rolling out multiple smaller updates and minor changes to the Admin Center in the AskCody Portal to improve usability, overview, ease of use, navigation, and provide more transparency about licenses and consumption. All these updates help Admin users manage the AskCody Account easier and streamlines licensing.

Computers with new names in the AskCody Add-ins and system emails

As a follow-up on the previous post about new names across the Platform, we are now releasing the second step in the project of streamlining the AskCody Platform so it becomes easier to understand and more simple to navigate. 

Today, we are changing the wording in our 3 AskCody Add-ins for Outlook and all system e-mails sent from AskCody. With this second step released the whole Platform is aligned and updated with the new names. You can see all the names in this article.

New names for the AskCody Add-ins

We are working on a large project of streamlining the AskCody Platform so it becomes easier to understand and more simple to navigate. Furthermore, the Platform will be filled with a ton of new functions and views when the project is finished. 

The AskCody Mobile App - Bring simplicity to your workday

It doesn't get any bigger than this! The AskCody Mobile App is available in App Store and we are proud to finally show you!

It is packed with cool ways of bringing simplicity to your workday, so you easily can schedule your meetings and keep track of your workday on the go. 

The AskCody App for iOS is the newest member of our Room Booking module, which provides you with a complete and simple overview of your workday. The app notifies if you have pending meeting invitations as well as informing if no rooms have been added to your meetings - ensuring that you and your coworkers always have a place to meet and collaborate.

Watch the video and see the requirements in the following.

AskCody new import and export function on host list with differentiators.

It is now possible to easily detect all name duplicates in the host list in the Visitor Portal via the new export function, and create differentiators on those hosts who have the same name.

Commonly in larger companies, employees can have the same First and Last name, and this can sometimes create confusion in the reception when you don't know which John Smith to choose in the host list.

Access AskCody data in Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer

In the previous post about the new Insights, we mentioned that it would be released in two steps:

  • Release 1 - Insights in the AskCody Portal (July 2, 2020)
    • Access to the new Insights for all customers on the Essentials and Advanced plans. 

    • Microsoft Exchange data in Insights visible 13 months back in time.

  • Release 2 - Insights data export (July 10, 2020)
    • Access to Microsoft Exchange and Insights data 3 years back in time, made accessible through Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. This means that you can start benefiting from the data from the moment you enable Insights.

The new Insights is simple, intuitive, and arms you with complex data presented in beautiful dashboards for an easy and efficient way to make business decisions on optimizing office space and facilities services. It helps you learn and compare to understand the specific needs for room types and equipment across each company division or location.

Hide notified status label in the Visitor Management Platform

In the Visitor Web Portal, it's now possible to hide the “notified” label on an expected visitor and keep the visitors sorted by expected arrival time.

When a visitor is expected at a reception the visitor is labeled as “Expected” in the Portal and when the Portal sends out an email or an SMS to notify the visitor about their arrival, the visitor status label changes to “Notified”. This means the “Notified” visitor will move down the list, and if you have sorted the visitor list by “Expected” visitors, you don’t have the overview of who is expected to arrive soon. With the new functionality to hide the "notified" status you can keep the visitors sorted by expected time of arrival regardless of them being "notified".
