Licensing

!Tellus 2.9 requires new server license, select the proper version (2.9) when downloading the license from Spectra™!

Previous version of Tellus, used the hard drive’s number as identification, when generating licenses. This has been changed and Tellus now uses an installation ID.  The ID can be found on the license manager page TellusWeb.

TellusWeb has been redesigned and some new features are available.

Start page

A personal “start page” is displayed directly after login.



Here the users can get a quick view of their present/upcoming absences, latest messages, latest micro blog posts from their colleagues and the nearest birthdays. Each box can contain a maximum of 5 items.


Header


In the header a globe has been added, when clicking this the "start page" is displayed.

The drop for active profile has been removed and the active profile is now displayed with the type of device; the active is displayed in blue.


Micro blog

The micro blog has been redesigned to a more simple and modern interface.  A new section called “Popular bloggers” shows a list of people with most followers.

Booking

The booking page design has been simplified and some new features are added. If you have configured a room (object) with a projector, conference phone and/or whiteboard then the icons will reflect that.



TellusWeb Admin

The administration page has been organized into categories.



Calendar servers

Now you can configure to hide subjects for a calendar server, if enabled subjects will never be shown. If the subject contains a trigger word, this will be matched and added as a specific absence in Tellus as before.




eXpose
