Improved Interactive Notifications

A Missed Call notification appears in the push notifications of your iOS device. This feature informs you when there is a missed call, without the need to open the Office@Hand Mobile app. It lets you return the call or view your missed calls using the interactive notification buttons. The Mobile app’s Call Log badge displays the number of unread missed calls.

A Join Now notification appears before the scheduled meeting or conference starts. A left swipe on the notification allows you to view the meeting details. On the other hand, a right swipe on the notification enables you to join the audio conference or online meeting right away with a single tap without entering the access code.

Send a quick reply to an Office@Hand Mobile app text message straight from the notification tray without launching your Mobile app. This feature is available for iOS 9 or later.

Save time by sending custom reply messages to the meeting’s host or participant/s to notify them about changes in your estimated time of arrival (ETA).

Incoming call notifications are enhanced with condensed wordings. An incoming call was previously displayed as “Incoming Call from.” This was shortened to show “Call from.” A concise call control button is available to avoid confusion.
