 Option to automatically delete files from the trash

suppression automatique des fichiers en corbeille

Trashed documents can take up a lot of space. In order to allow our customers to optimize their storage space, we have included a feature that, once activated, automatically deletes files that have been present in your trash for more than 90 days. No need to remove each individual document, with just one click and you can save time and storage space!

Display of user restrictions when creating an event

contraintes des collaborateurs dans l'agenda

In order to help you plan your events, we have included the option of displaying the events of other workspaces (and the one from which you have activated the filter) in which the collaborators present in your workspace are also participants.

This helps you to avoid double-booking them whilst they are already engaged in another workspace.

 Display of events without participants

affichage evenement sans participant

In order to simplify the My agenda view and the calendars of your workspaces, it is now possible to hide events with no associated users. As a result, you can focus on the events in which you are a participant without being “distracted” by the rest.

As events created on Wimi have no associated participants by default, in order to avoid disrupting the prior usage of our users, this option is ticked automatically. If you do not wish to display this type of event, deselect this option.

Assignment of a task to its task-list in the calendar

It is now possible to see which task-lists your tasks are a part of when they are displayed in the calendar. Simply hover over the pictogram to view the name of the task-list.

Email notifications when an event has been accepted/refused

Until now, notifications regarding the participation or non-participation of a user in an event were only triggered in the web-app. From now on, you will also receive this notification via e-mail.

Evolution of manager rights

droits manager wimi

Previously, managers had the ability to create new users but could not modify/adjust their access rights, as only administrators had this right. Managers can now manage the rights of users they have directly invited.

For all questions relating to these new features, our support team is at your disposal via the chat present in the application. In the meantime, we are looking forward to meeting you next month.
