SP3 Beta: Hosting, SSL & Web Conference Improvements

SP3 Beta has made it out of the door. Besides some important under the hood changes for better performance and less memory usage, we have added the following new features:

Conference Call & Interface improvements

We have added some more features and further streamlined the conference call interface:

  1. Internal participants can now be called automatically when a conference starts – this is now a server side option that must be enabled in conference settings.
  2. You can invite people by email to a call conference from the web client.
  3. You can now control participants from the web interface.
  4. The schedule conference interface in the clients has been streamlined / improved as well.

Hosting Improvements

We are also making it easier to host 3CX. Based on our experience managing thousands of machines on Google, we have added important security, reliability and manageability features to allow 3CX to scale better in the data centre and lower the cost of supporting instances:

  • New Hosting admin account – allows limited access to the system to do maintenance without giving the admin access to the customer data on the machine itself. Learn more about this new profile.
  • Adjust logging level to minimize disc usage
  • Disk space protection – limits disk space usage once disc appears to be running out of space so that you will not lose access to the machine.
  • Simplification of server side setup of SSL certificates for secure connections to clients

CRM Integrations

Added support for Zoho CRM – see configuration guide
Added ability to add support for your own CRM – see the development guide
