We've added a fresh new user experience for all of the slide overs within OneSync. Anchor Tabs use scrolling tabs that allow all the contents of the slide over to be displayed on a single page that you can scroll down.
This feature is located in OneSync Settings under the General Settings tab and has three options to select from:
- Auto Detect: This selection will enable Anchor Tabs if your resolution is 1920 pixels (HD) or greater.
- Yes: This selection will enable Anchor Tabs regardless of screen size.
- No: This selection will disable Anchor Tabs.
We've added a new function to OneSync called ORDINAL(). This function takes in a number and returns it as a string (word) with the number's ordinal added to the end of the number.
For example, if you were to pass this function the value of "1", it would return "1st", if you pass it a value of "2", it would return "2nd", etc.
CSV Destination Cloning
We have just introduced the ability to clone a CSV destination. This will automatically copy the entire destination into a new destination with a "copy" appended at the end of it.
This feature is useful if you have many Custom Mappings, Default Mappings, or Events & Actions that need to be in a different CSV destination.
Hide Unused Source Fields
A small improvement we've made when selecting fields in a destination or collection is hiding the OneSync fields that are not being used. By default, we hide the fields that are not being used, but we provide the option to show unused OneSync fields.
G Suite - EmployeeID Mapping
We've added an EmployeeID mapping to G Suite destinations that will improve the experience when working with external IDs in G Suite. This new mapping will work exactly the same as any other G Suite mapping within OneSync.
ODBC Secondary Source Editing
When editing an ODBC secondary source, we've changed the user interface to allow you to change the database connection. Remember to review the fields that you're pulling from the secondary source under the Source Fields tab.
Admins - OneSync Account Editing
New improvements have been made for admins who would like to manage other OneSync accounts. By clicking the settings cog in the top right corner of the navigation bar, then navigating to Manage Accounts, you will see that all of the accounts can be edited.
To edit the account you are logged in with you can either click on the Edit button which will redirect you to the User Settings page, or you can navigate to User Settings by hovering over the avatar icon in the top right corner and clicking User Settings.
Centralize SMTP Settings
We've updated how OneSync destinations handle email credentials by putting them together in a single location. This means that per destination you can select from the email credentials you have added to OneSync that will be used in the Events & Actions Email event.
You can add an email by clicking on the cog in the top right for OneSync Settings. From there you will navigate to the Email Credentials tab on the left-hand side and you can add email credentials to OneSync by clicking on the Add Email Credentials button outlined below.
Within the destinations that you would like to use an email event, you will be able to select and even add email credentials you would like to use for that destination under the Advanced Settings tab when editing or creating a destination.
Active Directory - Manage Computer Accounts
A brand new feature had been added that allows OneSync to manage computer accounts within Active Directory. When creating an Active Directory destination you will choose between the destination being for users or computers. OneSync will not allow you to have both users and computers within the same destination.
OneSync will be able to edit, enable, and disable computer accounts in Active Directory but not add computer accounts. You will be able to correlate to Active Directory computer accounts and utilize all of the OneSync destination functionality except for group mappings.
Below a toggle is outlined which shows an icon for a computer and an icon for users. Once the destination has been created you will not be able to change that toggle.
Below are the default mappings that are required when creating a Computer Account destination:
- Name (cn)
- Organizational Unit Path (distinguishedName)
Child Destination Progress Indicator
We've added a user interface improvement if you currently have Destination Chaining enabled on the destination which shows the activity of a child destination. This makes it more apparent to let users know that the parent destination and the child destination are exporting at the same time.
