Integrate Microsoft Exchange With Customer Connect 5-1


Microsoft Exchange and Scheduled Sessions 'Busy-Time'


From within the scheduled sessions calendar you can now view all of your clinician's Microsoft Exchange calendar events so you don’t double book them. Download the Appointment Bookings and Scheduled Sessions Apps from our Apps Marketplace if you have not done so. These Apps are installed by default on Standard and Premium plans. Enterprise customers, please speak to your Coviu account representative about accessing this feature. 





Customisable Clinic Closed Message for Waiting Area


Clinic administrators are now able to configure a customised message to be displayed when the clinic is closed, allowing patients to understand how to seek alternate assistance.


To customise your message, go to Configure in your Coviu Dashboard and in Waiting Area - General Configuration Settings there is a new option for Waiting Area Out of Hours Message. Patients will see this message when they access the Waiting Area outside the clinic’s configured hours.

Coming Soon


Device Check Feature


Any person entering a Coviu call will get the opportunity to check their microphone, speaker and camera devices before entering the call. This will help alleviate issues where a participant has entered the call, but experiences audio or video issues. This scenario is most common where participants have multiple devices to choose from e.g. Bluetooth headphones or a second camera. Each device check stage will be a simple question to help determine if your device is working as it is meant too.

Data Collections Permissions


Enterprise account users are now able to limit who can access data collections in order to support principle of least privilege. When inviting users or updating permissions of existing users for a clinic, access to data collections can be granted or removed.
