FlexWhere for Mac greatly improved

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We introduced an upgraded FlexWhere for MS-Windows a few weeks ago (formerly: TrayApp). Now we’re introducing a new version of FlexWhere for Mac. The two FlexWhere Desktop versions now offer the same functionality.

Where previously FlexWhere for Mac was slightly behind FlexWhere for MS-Windows, with this release, we have aligned all functionalities. On the surface, the software looks the same as FlexWhere for MS-Windows.

Lock status now works on the Mac. This means that a desk turns yellow when you leave your workplace for a while. This indicates to colleagues you might be coming back. After being unoccupied for some time, the desk will turn green on the map. This shows that the workspace is available to colleagues again.

Local username and UPN

The output on the backend has also been tackled to minimise differences between the operating systems. For example, both the local username and the UPN are linked back as usernames. This version also supports MAC addresses.

Of course, we also made sure that FlexWhere for Mac runs flawlessly on the latest version of the Mac, OSX Big Sur. We have also reviewed and streamlined the code. With this move, we have laid the foundation for further development of FlexWhere for Mac.

TrayApp now called FlexWhere for Desktop

With this release we say goodbye to the term TrayApp. With the new name, we make it more clear what this software is about. Therefore we call the software for Microsoft Windows and Mac FlexWhere for Desktop. And yes, it works on a laptop too, of course.

The apps for Android and iOS are now called FlexWhere for Mobile. If it’s about a specific platform, it becomes FlexWhere for <Platform>. Like FlexWhere for Mac or FlexWhere for Android.

(The version number has been changed from 1.1.4 to 1.9. This way we can better streamline the versions)
