Workplace 3 min read

The June ClickShare software update brings several enhancements to the ClickShare Present and Conference ranges.

What’s new?

  • Enjoy the new App experience: even more intuitive and user-friendly
  • Benefit from better support for large enterprise installs

Take a deeper dive into the new features

1. Enjoy the new App experience

A redesign of the ClickShare App brings a more intuitive user interface to all ClickShare users. The App guides you through the meeting and helps you meet in the most simple, fast and efficient way.

  • Simplified connection and sharing experience
  • Nearby meeting rooms are immediately visible when you open the App
  • Pin code location is shown
  • Application window sharing is available when connected
  • Meeting functions and controls are always in reach

2. Better support for large enterprises

The new release offers additional flexibility to integrate ClickShare with room management solutions thanks to REST API improvements.

  • Complete Base Unit configuration support through REST API
  • Systems will receive immediate notifications of any resource state changes (e.g. sharing state, peripheral state) through the Server-Side Events implementation on the REST API

In addition, ClickShare offers improved Wi-Fi security without the hassle of manual certificate deployment thanks to SCEP RFC for Button and Base Unit. Custom HTTPS certificates avoid security warnings in the browser when opening the ClickShare Configurator.

  • Use SCEP service to retrieve certificates for Base Unit & Button Wi-Fi authentication
  • Custom HTTPS certificates are now also available for ClickShare Present & ClickShare Conference
  • Create your own trusted certificate instead of using ClickShare’s certificate

How to get this update on your units?

The ClickShare platform consists of different components: Base Units, Buttons, Apps and the XMS cloud management platform. Enjoying the best experience requires each of these components to run the latest software versions. And updating is easy, seamless and automated.

  • The Base Unit firmware can be installed via the auto-update functionality or it can be manually updated via the ClickShare Configurator. Buttons update automatically over Wi-Fi.
  • For the ClickShare Desktop App,  it’s recommended to download and install the latest version manually to ensure the App automatically updates to future releases. Once installed, an auto-update function will keep the App up to date. Do you want to enable wireless conferencing via the App? Be sure to download the MSI installer. 
  • The iOS and Android App are updated according to your mobile device settings.
  • The XMS Cloud update runs automatically while XMS Virtual Edge can be updated manually.
