New Features for Management Portal

Viewing Number Status in Number Management

We’re introducing a new Number Status screen that will be available under Setup > Number Management.

  • The Number Status screen will have a search panel and a list of numbers in table form
    1. By default, all numbers from the administrator’s organization and sub-organizations will appear in ascending order by the Number column
    2. Admins can use the Search by panel to filter out results based on desired parameters, including:
      • Number / Tag: Type a MultiLine number or Reserved tag into the search field
      • Series: Select the checkmark for one or more series
      • Organization: Select the checkmark for one or more organizations
      • Status: Select the checkmark for one or more number statuses
        • Available: Numbers that are free to be reserved or assigned to users
        • Reserved: Numbers that are tagged to be used for a specific user or role
        • Assigned: Numbers that are assigned to users who have been invited
        • In Use: Numbers that invited users have used to complete registration
  • Admins can reverse the sort order by hovering over a column header and clicking the Sort icon
  • To learn more on how to use the new feature, see Admins: Number Status Knowledge Base article

Management Portal Improvements

  • Pagination and search functions for the Accounts page have been optimized with backend and frontend changes
  • Administrators will be alerted when deleting API users to prevent accidental deletion of these users, which are used to connect the MultiLine application to external applications, such as Salesforce
  • Administrators will be restricted from trying to send SMS invites using a Device Number which is the same as any other numbers in the available pool, reserved pool, or associated with another user as an assigned MultiLine number or as a device number
  • Previously, Management Portal admins had to configure the same recording settings for WhatsApp and SMS, choosing to capture both or neither, but now they can be managed separately; admins can choose to set only WhatsApp or only SMS to be recorded. Note: This update only applies to organizations using Format 7. 

Crash Reporting

A consent flag has been added to BlackBerry Work UEM settings to opt-in to sending Firebase crash reports for Movius for BlackBerry apps. We recommend BlackBerry Work administrators to grant this consent so that Movius can use Firebase Crashlytics to diagnose and resolve issues.
