New display option when making ad-hoc reservations on a Single Room Display, and Cluster Display. You can now specify the time slots you wish to use so that users just touch the duration, such as 30 minutes, 45 minutes and so on. This replaces the Slider. You decides how to label the buttons.

Licensing of Door Tablet installations is now simpler thanks to the introduction of a new Licensing page. You may now easily deploy and list your license utilization in one place. The feature is available using the Web UI only. Read more here.
Added new alerts to the Google Universal Analytics (UA) module in the event it encountered an issue with Analytics which prevents it from continuing to post statistics.

Integration with Google Universal Analytics (UA). This is a major development which will transform user's understanding on how their resources are used and will allow manager to change the business rules that govern management of those resources. This has been long in the making and its finally here.
Read more about this exciting development here and of course in the help database.
Added ability to restrict the neighborhoods a user can see when looking for free resources.
We fixed some minor bug fixes in the Door Tablet clients. On the server end we fixed a bug affecting Cluster and Airport displays.
We converted all email messages to use the native platform environment. For example, when connecting to Google Calendar all alerts are sent via Gmail. When using Exchange, messages are deposited directly to Exchange and do not require any additional routing. In IBM Domino we drop the messages directly to the router for instant handling. This ensure messages flow on all platform even when mail routing is not configured on the Door Tablet server.
New infrastructure is being prepared for the near future arrival of integration with Google Universal Analytics. This is planned for release in V6.1.0.
We worked on improving error handling and dealing with conditions when an Exchange server is overloaded.
We are pleased to announce the availability of a new platform for Door Tablet - Google Calendar. The addition of the platform places Door Tablet in a unique position where it is the only server that supports all of the three scheduling technologies in one product: Microsoft Exchange (and all its variants including Office 365), IBM Domino and of course Google Calendar. The architecture of the connection is described here.
If you are planning to make the switch to Google Calendar - your Door Tablet investment is secured . No changes are required to the Door Tablet client devices or public displays.
SalesForce uses Google Calendar. Door Tablet, as described above, now integrates with Google Calendar and is consequently compatible with Salesforce. Please let us know if you use SalesForce and wish to evaluate Door Tablet's integration with it.
Our development team is very busy preparing for the next release of Door Tablet. The focus of the release will be to bring intelligent understanding of resource utilization using Google Universal Analytics. The team is also hard at work on SMS integration in which Door Tablet will utilize our sister product, smsPULSE. Stay tuned.
When you plan a meeting using a resource (room or desk) in which a check-in is required, if you do not check in on time your booking is removed and the resource becomes free. This is acceptable if you failed to use the resource but is problematic if you are there and simply forgot to check in. From this version, Door Tablet will email you a reminder that you need to check in if you have not done so, and it does so a few minutes after the meeting has begun. The reminder to check in applies to both single room displays and cluster displays.
We fixed a number of issues surrounding the display, including handling of names with underscores (_) and, most importantly, with automatic cancelation of reservations. We continue to listen to our clients and we are certain users will appreciate our on-going improvements.
Door Tablet was a success in 2014 and we expect to go above and beyond in 2015. We thank you for your continued interest in Door Tablet and are happy to answer any and all questions you may have.
