December 28, 2019 - version 2.20.01 -- Ongoing maintenance and feature updates

We've rolled the current version from 2.19 to 2.20 as we start releasing some of these new features and capabilities. And still more to come!


  • Add the office365 add-in (beta ready, still not in the Microsoft store
  • Lucid Meetings can now act as an OAuth2 provider, which is really what you want when you have an external application (e.g., the O365 add-in) acting on behalf of logged-in users
  • Improve the timezone selector
  • Extensive work to generalize and allow configuration of user permissions
  • Roll out the private vs. open room options
  • Roll out the ability for regular members to create rooms (via permission)
  • Roll out the ability for organization members to view activity in open rooms and to join those rooms at-will
  • De-cluttering parts of the UI with a lot of user action buttons


So the big theme here is that Office 365 integration via our add-in is ready for Beta testers. Also we've added a whole new operating model for organizations that want to mix and match private room (by invitation only) and open rooms (available to all organization team members).


We've also added org-level permission settings that allow users in an organization to create meeting rooms as they see fit, which helps self-organizing teams get to work. We've also added room-level permission settings that allow allow any team member in a room to create and run meetings.


Some organizations want to tightly control who can do what, others are more egalitarian in their approach. Both models, or a mix-n-match are supported in the system now.


We're working to get our Office 365 add-in through the Microsoft evaluation process and hope to have it publicly available in early 2020. That'll be fantastic, as we've been working to nail this one for some time now!


Cheers,

John
