We’ve just released a handful of updates focused on Maps, here’s the skinny:
EventBoard Conference Room Scheduling iOS 2.8.8
New “snapback” function will bring the map back to its default position after 15 seconds of inactivity. This is ideal when using a display locked into “Maps Mode” at a central location, like an entryway or outside an elevator, so the map doesn’t stay centered on the area that the last user zoomed in on.
Oh, you don’t know about Maps Mode? Don’t worry, that’s by design. You know how In-N-Out Burger has the secret menu, with items like Animal Style? Well, this is our equivalent. If you’re a customer using our Maps feature, give us a shout and we’ll get Maps Mode turned on for you – as long as you promise to provide feedback that will help us get it launched in a proper way to the masses.
We’re growing with you. We’ve increased the results returned from 10 to 50. Previously, we’d only return 10 results of any type: campus, building or floor. This only impacted organizations with more than 10 of any single type, but now that’s a thing of the past.
We’ve neutralized the background color behind the maps, so it’ll blend in better with your brand. The purple is gone and now you’ll see a more neutral grey.
When a floor has no maps attached to it, that dropdown no longer has an active state.
Flightboard + Maps
Flightboard now supports Maps, too. Flightboard was a skunkworks project by a few key developers and it has turned into quite the hit, as those things go. To ride the momentum, we re-prioritized a few things and now support Maps on Flightboard.
If your company uses Maps, now you can simply navigate to a floor that has a map attached to it, and you’ll see the option to Launch Map. Do it, I dare you.
