We continue to expand the functionality of our cloud PBX, and are pleased to announce the upcoming release of phone.systems™ version 2.8. The upcoming release is scheduled for the middle of May and will include the following enhancements:
- Encryption for SIP-Accounts - SIP-Accounts in phone.systems™ 2.8 will be updated to support TLS encryption as well as encrypted media types SRTP-SDES and SRTP-DTLS.
These features are essential for meeting today’s security standards, and they also provide the ability to use phone.systems™ SIP-Accounts via webRTC.
Kindly note that by default, encryption will be disabled. Please contact your phone.systems™ provider to enable this feature.
- Combo-search tool - a new type of search will be added providing a quick way to find any related phone.systems™ resource with a single search request. It is effectively a combination of the existing search capabilities, with the addition of the ability to search for objects on the phone.systems™ workspace.
- Avatars - the contacts will be improved to support avatars. Avatars that are added in phone.systems™ will also appear in the call.center™ softphone application.
Improvements to the Call Logs section - call chart names and descriptions will be improved to better indicate the type of calls that are included in the statistics.
Also, some visual improvements will be implemented to aid in the clarity of the displayed data.
Contact statistics and contact charts will be improved to support additional charts for:
a) Total Calls
b) Total Lost Calls
Also, the contact avatars will be included in the Call Logs section.
Mobile-friendly dropdowns - the phone.systems™ user interface will be improved with the addition of mobile-friendly dropdowns for mobile users.
System emails - this feature will allow users to set an email address, which can be used to send notifications about certain events that have occurred on the phone.systems™ account.
The events that can trigger the system email notification are as follows:
a) When a Delivery method is given an “Access revoked” status
Whenever one of the delivery methods in the cloud storage (Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive) receives the status “Access revoked”, an email will be sent to report this.
b) When there are failed deliveries on the account
Whenever the system detects a failed delivery to one of the delivery methods, an email will be sent to report this. If deliveries consistently fail, follow up emails are sent every 24 hours.
This feature will be constantly updated to include more events.
As always, your feedback, comments and questions are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
