Looks good for Office 365 users. Great also the integration into the directory.
But, how about 3CX and Exchange? Will the existing functionality be still present?
After installing a test version over the Weekend:
Answering my own question: Yes, the options to integrate exchange to get the users contacts is still present.
Active directory integration seems not possible only azure active directory.
The import button under Extensions says "Office 365" and not "Active Directory"...
Or are you looking at another feature besides Extensions?
This was only a note, if someone asks himself if the Office 365 integration has been going along with an Active Directory integration.
Active Directory integration can be found under "Extensions" > "Import" > "Import AD". There you can set the options to access a local or remote Active Directory Domain Controller.
Thank you. Great that not only office 365 but also Active directory is supported.
Will v16 enable Exchange Sync to also sync contact pictures?
We put a lot of effort into our exchange contacts, so a lot of them got a picture to it, but sadly it is not used by the current sync :-/
Hi @Lev and thank you for your comment.
Currently exchange sync does not include contact images. You can use our "Ideas" forum to propose this as a new feature for our development team to consider.
This is a great idea, but we would like to see the mapping to be configurable per user. Default is fine, but allow us to override it.
Also, how will this interact with Auto Change Status when Idle? Who wins?
I can see where these two features might be used together, but we need to make sure they do not conflict.
Thanks for your feedback. I suppose you refer to the new "Sync Extension Status with Office 365 Calendar" function. The status synchronization is event-driven, so the status can be set by the user's Office 365 calendar entry, as well as the "Auto Change Status when Idle" feature. The last event received by the PBX sets the current status for the extension.
If you have any feature or functionality suggestions, use our "Ideas" forum to propose to our development team for consideration:
