Dear customers and partners,

we want to present to you our Major Update EVALARM 1.9.

Because of the high numbers of improvements in this update, you can find a completely list in our Wiki.


Administration und Cockpit

The major improvements were implemented in our web panel. We unified the whole web-desing and reworked the functionality of the cockpit, to make it more intuitive and faster possible to create or edit alarms. Instead of scrolling down to the end of the page, now you can find all important buttons at the same place of screen.

The second new feature in the web is the section "External services", which you can find under "Workflows". Now it is possible to connect and administrate external systems like a fire alarm system by yourself. We will expand the number of interfaces step by step and start with email, SMS, ESPA and printer port configurations. Therefore we implemented a new Wiki-page, where we are going to document all informations for the external services.

Furthermore we have renamed our user roles. Crisis team supervisor/member are now "emergency & crisis team supervisor/member"

Last we have decided to hide the message field. This field originally was implemented for system messages and can't be edited. This was confusing for some users. From now on this field only will show up, if an connected system send a message to the alarm.


Android und iOS apps

The most important news is, that form now on it is possible for EVALARM to overwrite the sound settings on iOS devices! After long negotiations we finally got the permission. This feature can be activated in the worflows as usual and has to be permitted by the user on the mobile phone.

Next it is possible now to set active alarms on vibration or mute. Consequently you don't get acoustic notifications if the alarm is updated. This applies only for the respective alarm and not for alarms which were created before or after.

Furthermore now you can see in the additional informations in the app, by whom and when the additonal information was updated – adjusted to the time zone.

Last we reworked the time of displaying alarms in the app. Ended alarms and information messages are displayed in the app archive for 7 days and afterwards only visible in the web-interface.
