# Kahu Releases

This section includes release notes for each Kahu release. This includes which apps and services have been updated, and an overview of the changes made.

# 2022.3

This release includes two main features: people search in the User App, and initial reporting functionality in the Workplace App.

People Search

This release includes the User App people search feature; when enabled this adds an extra tab on mobile (and is also supported on larger screens with an expandable section). When people have opted-in, you can search by name to find which desk someone has booked.

Reporting

This release includes initial reporting functionality in the Workplace App. This includes the ability to see utilisation statistics overtime, for both rooms and desks. See the "options" menu for ways in which the graphs can be customised.

Note: this feature will not be available immediately on release; once the background data processing is complete it will become available.

# 2022.2

There are several new features in this release, and some smaller improvements. There is a breakdown below:

Desk Booking

  • Exclusive Neighbourhoods
  • Email reminders

Standard neighbourhoods are bookable by anyone on the day, from a Booking Kiosk; they can also be booked by anyone without a neighbourhood assigned. This new feature adds in a new type of neighbourhood: exclusive neighbourhoods. These can only be booked by those people with the neighbourhood explicitly assigned - this applies both for in advance and ad-hoc bookings.

Email reminders for desk bookings can be setup to be sent on the day of the booking, if the booking hasn't been checked in.

Room Booking

  • Improved multi-day booking support
  • Workplace App Calendar shows non-accepted bookings if they are in a room's calendar or require approval

Locale Support

  • Configurable site locale
