  • Added ‘sender name’ to messages in a group conversation

Server Side PIN Lock Enforcement

As an extension of the initial work done in 4.6, this task will allow organization administrators to turn PIN Lock on for all their TigerText users – or just a select few.

Administrators can also set the duration as well, the time it takes before PIN lock is required to get back in to TigerText. If a user already has PIN lock set, then the shortest duration is enforced.

PIN lock enforcement is immediate. Once an organization’s TigerText administrator turns this feature on, users will be prompted to ‘create a PIN’ the next time they launch the app. If they are already in the app, then they will receive the same prompt in real time.

Message Lifespan & Delete on Read (DoR)

TigerText administrators have the flexibility to enforce different message settings for different users. Message Lifespan – the time before a ‘read’ message disappears – and DoR can be set for the entire organization, or for the specific user.

For example, as an administrator, I want to set my entire organization’s messages to delete on read, but I want to turn off DoR for the executive team.

Version 4.6.1 for Android provides administrators with the ability to do this.

Displaying Sender Name on Group Messages

This update places the sender name within the message “card” itself. Previous versions of TigerText allowed users to obtain the sender name by tapping on that user’s avatar.
