Zoom, Roadmap & Other improvements

 

New

  

The native Zoom integration is now available! It took a few weeks for Zoom to perform a security review of Morgen and giving us green light, but finally here it is. As with Google Meet and Microsoft Teams, you can now create an ad-hoc meeting link for each new event scheduled manually or through a Morgen Scheduling link.

New

  

We believe it is important to share with you what we are working on, and what are our plans for the future of Morgen. This also gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts, comments and feature requests.

With the start of 2022, we have decided to replace the closed feedback board with a more open roadmap platform that is accessible from both the Morgen app and our website. Open to everyone, no registration required.

👉 Check out what is coming next and let us know how you plan to use it to make your life easier!

Needless to say that all the comments from the previous feedback platform have been reorganised in our internal backlog. Be assured that no comment will be lost.

 

New

  

You can now embed your Personal Booking page on your website. A button with the instructions to do so have been added to Morgen.

 

Improvement

  
  • The one-click Join button for virtual meetings now appears only for meetings you are attending (and not, for example, for meetings that are only on your colleagues calendars)
  • Virtual room links are now displayed in the confirmation and reminder emails that are sent to your attendees, when they book a meeting using a Morgen Scheduling link
 

Fix

  
  • We fixed the categorisation of some CalDAV calendars, erroneously considered read-only, which was preventing the editing of the events
  • We fixed a problem causing some Office 365 accounts to load forever in case of bad internet connection
  • We fixed some layout glitches, like the sidebar header moving behind the macOS traffic light buttons and the scheduler tooltip being hardly readable

📅 Morgen Links, superpowered

 

New

  

Landing page

You can now organize your Morgen links in a public page accessible at book.morgen.so/<your-name>. You can decide which links should be visible on your personal booking page, and which ones should stay private (only accessible with a direct link). You can also personalize your booking page title and welcome message, as well as the look and feel with your name, company, and logo.

New

  

Email reminders for Morgen Links

We know how easy it is to forget an appointment and we don't want this to happen to your attendees. You can now set Morgen to send email reminders to both you and your attendees for all meetings scheduled through a Morgen link. You can add multiple reminders that will be delivered timely before the start of the appointment.

New

  

White Labeling

Morgen Pro users can now customize the appearance of Morgen link pages, as well as the one of all the emails that are sent to the meeting attendees on your behalf. It is now possible to change your company logo, brand color, and hide references to Morgen.

 

Improvement

  
  • It is now possible to embed a Morgen link into your web page
  • Everyone booking a meeting with you with a Morgen link will now receive an additional confirmation by email, including buttons to add the appointment to the calendar
  • The Morgen links are now customizable to look more friendly
  • You can now assign a custom name for each of your calendars. This is handy when you have multiple accounts and some of the calendars have the same name
  • The attendee autocompletion now also relies on the person's name (before it was only looking at the email address)
 

Fix

  
  • We fixed an issue on the Morgen link widget preventing the correct navigation through months
  • We fixed an issue that could sometimes cause events to disappear from the calendar view

Morgen ♥ Videoconferencing

 

New

  

With release 2.4.0, we introduced native integrations with Microsoft Teams and Google Meet. You will be able to create ad-hoc rooms for newly-created events. Morgen will generate a one-time virtual room and attach it to your meeting. This works for events booked via Morgen Scheduling Links as well.

You can still configure your permanent meeting rooms in Morgen settings. While this works best with Zoom, where the concept of a "waiting room" is well designed, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet work better with a one-off link generated for each meeting.

To start with Google Meet and Microsoft Teams, visit the Integrations tab in Morgen settings.

The native integration with Zoom and other providers is coming soon!

Improvement

  

We also have some other improvements to share:

  • on the Week, 2 Weeks, or Month view, you can now click on a date and jump into the Day view for that day
  • we gave the event details popup more space to visualize the event notes
  • we have changed the look and feel of this changelog, we are now using Headwayapp, and we love it!
 

Fix

  
  • we fixed an issue preventing the use of Morgen Scheduling Links with some CalDAV providers (namely Zoho and Fastmail)
  • the event widget popup was moving too much while editing an event, this is now fixed
  • the declining of events on Office 365 or Outlook was erroneously showing an error message, this is now fixed
  • we fixed a program that could have caused an infinite loop and related memory leaks in some rare cases
  • we fixed a problem preventing the re-scheduling of a task as all-day event

What's Improved in 2.3.4 & 2.3.5

We have some great new features awaiting the December release 🤩. In the meanwhile, however, here are some general improvements and fixes.

 

Improvement

  
  • We have made the size of the Morgen panel when using the Alt+C option the same for the Day and the Week views. This makes the transition smoother and gives more space for events and tasks in the Day view.
  • It is now possible to delete a calendar account from a device where the account itself is not authenticated. This covers some edge cases where it was not possible to add or remove an account.
 

New

  
  • We disabled the possibility to RSVP to "This & Future occurrences". The reason is that this operation is not really supported by the calendar protocols and could lead to odd behaviors, like duplicate events. You can still RSVP to single occurrences or the entire event series.
  • We fixed a problem causing some events not to synchronize with the calendar provider immediately. This was a source of confusion as events would appear in Morgen but not immediately on other devices.
  • We fixed a problem delivering event invitations with some providers (e.g. Infomaniak).
  • We fixed a problem fetching events from some CalDAV providers.
  • We fixed a problem with Google Out-of-office (OOO) events. Before these events were displayed as one day longer than they actually were.
  • On a minor note, we fixed the downgrading alert. In general, it is not possible to downgrade Morgen to a previous version. A warning should be displayed if this is detected, but this warning was not displayed on some systems. This is now fixed.

Fixed & Improved in 2.3.3

 

Improvement

  
  • Avoid the flickering of the attendee autocompletion widget while typing.
  • Improved the loading time of the scheduling links, that was definitely too long.
  • Now the event widget does not move around like crazy while you are changing the time of the event.
  • Allow selecting and copying the error message in case of a crash.
  • Use Command/CTRL+H to hide and Command/CTRL+M to minimize.
 

New

  
  • Fixed the positioning of the event widget appearing out of the screen on the Day view.
  • Fixed a crash occurring when creating a tag without a name.
  • Fixed the visual occlusion for the tag editing tooltip.
  • Fixed an issue making it impossible to remove the event description of an event in Exchange.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the Quick Join button to appear with many all-day events.
  • Fixed time zone helper showing out of the screen on the Day view.

Introducing Time Zone Assistant

 

New

  

If you travel often across time zones, or you work with a team distributed around the world, for sure you know the importance (and the pain!) of time zones. In the past months, we asked ourselves whether a calendar can provide more support to work across time zones than just a second timeline. Some of our users told us that they work with people distributed in five or six time zones, how can this scale?

This release introduces Morgen Time Zone Assistant.

If you often schedule meetings with people abroad, you can now enable up to nine secondary time zones and quickly check the time across the globe before creating a meeting. Colors and animations guide you towards the choice of a suitable working time for everyone in the meeting. The time zone assistant widget is accessible in two ways:

👉 Moving the cursor on the timeline in the day, week, and 2 weeks view This is most useful to decide when to schedule a meeting, or for simple time zone conversion

gif (1).gif

👉 Moving the cursor on an event while holding Shift Most useful when creating a meeting to adjust the time and make it suitable for everyone involved

gif (2).gif

 

Finally, when you travel (hopefully again soon!) it is now much faster to switch your calendar to a different time zone. The option is now accessible from the main view, and you don't need to reach the settings menu. We also added a quick way to switch back to your recently used time zones, so you can move very fast across the globe.

We really think this will make working across time zones much easier. In the future, Morgen will automatically filter the time zones displayed on events according to the attendees. Looking forward to hearing what you think!

Introducing Zapier integration (Beta)

 

New

  

We are excited to open our beta Zapier integration to all Pro users. The current Zapier triggers and actions are focused on improving the experience with Morgen Tasks. You can import tasks created in other tools into Morgen, or trigger actions on other tools when a task is created in Morgen.

image.png

Zapier supports hundreds of apps, most likely also the tools you already use. If your workflow requires different actions or triggers, let us know.

Zapier integration is in beta: you will not find Morgen among the Zapier apps, as it is still in closed beta. You can send us an email to get a direct invitation.

 

Improvement

  

Starting from this release, Morgen persists the latest calendar view settings and restores them when you restart the app. For example, if you normally work on the monthly view, you will start from the same monthly view after a restart. Similarly, if you prefer not to see weekends, you will not need to toggle them off any time anymore.

 

Fix

  
  • Fixed the calendar widget not appearing when editing the end date of a recurrence
  • Fixed parsing of some events, which was causing the end date to be wrong (and in the wrong timezone)
  • Fixed notifications with CalDAV calendars, that were not delivered reliably
  • Fixed a minor style issue with the notes fields in the Scheduler sidebar tab

October Improvements in 2.2.6

Thank you for your feedback! This release brings a number of small improvements that have been suggested by you. As always, do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything that could make your life easier with Morgen :)

 

Improvement

  
  • Often an event timezone differs from the current local timezone. We have improved the event detail widget to show both the event original time and the time in the local timezone. Moreover, when the start and end timezones are different (long flights are a common example), Morgen now shows both.

Fix

  
  • It is now possible to select and copy text from the Notes field of an event that is not editable.
  • Fixed an issue causing some yearly events to be displayed every month.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the correct update of a weekly event series when the weekday is changed.

What's New in 2.2.5

 

 

New

  

You can now define the auto-refresh interval for calendar subscriptions (iCalendar feeds). If you are working with a highly dynamic calendar, you might want to use a refresh interval of 5, 15, or 60 minutes. Instead, if you know that the calendar does not change often, or if it contains a large number of events, you can set the refresh interval to 1 day to save resources.

Improvement

  
  • We made the parsing of calendar feeds more robust, even for misformatted data.
  • We now show a visual warning when a Scheduling link is not fully synchronized with our servers, to make sure you know when a Scheduling link is ready to be shared.
  • We now use semicolons to separate attendees when communicating with your default mail client. This improves general compatibility.
 

Fix

  
  • Fixed the misalignment of the time labels in weekly and daily views, visible when the resolution was set high.
  • Fixed a problem with editing the available time slots of Permanent Scheduling Links. The available slots were only visible when editing recent links. Now, they are visible for all links.
  • Fixed the Czech and Japanese locale.
  • Fixed an issue causing non-native notifications on Linux not to be displayed (yes, was actually not entirely fixed in the previous release 🙈)
