We are happy to release the new version of our Outlook Calendars for Confluence! There is a lot going on, so let's dive right in.
Upgrading from 1.3.*
You should have no issue upgrading from the previous version, though there are some things to note:
- Office 365 customers will need to re-login, since credentials are now stored more securely.
- If you did not do the configuration before, but relied on the "Auto-Detect" setting, you will now have to configure the correct values. Our new wizard will support you with this task.
- Macro creation now works correctly again
- Move over lots of components to Atlaskit to match new layout
- Some fixes to permission determination (still ongoing, see known issues)
- Performance improvements: First launch should be way faster (ongoing)
- Reordering calendars does not flicker anymore
- Detecting calendar permissions correctly is still ongoing.. A definite fix is targeted for 1.5.0 - if you notice any issues please let us know!
Simplified Administration Page
With this release, we condensed the administration page and moved everything to one screen. In addition, there is a new auto-detect wizard which will detect your configuration much more reliably!
You can find the settings in your add-on section in Confluence under "OUTLOOK CALENDARS" → "Calendar Configuration".
Improved Exchange Support
We improved support for Exchange in a number of ways:
- Autodiscover works now more reliable and can also detect login via domain username
- Exchange 2010 support was added - please let us know in case you are still facing issues with this environment
- Requests to the Exchange server (via EWS) are now routed via Confluence, so no data is leaving your environment
You should be able to use our auto-detect wizard to find the correct configuration for your Exchange environment!
Recurring Event Improvements
Recurring events got some love this release as well, you are now able to copy a series of events to your own calendar:
In addition, we now display an recurrence icon if the event is a series:
