Chimpa suite update version 3.9.1 now is live.
This update includes: an hotfix on the “View Screen” action could conflict with the “Allow screenshots and screen recordings” restriction; optimizations like the one of users / devices lists, that now are faster than ever.
Directory Sync update
In Chimpa 3.9 we have released Directory Sync so admin can choose one of the services to take users and roles synched with Chimpa.
In this release, Azure AD Sync imports avatar too and, finally, bidirectional sync is available for Microsoft and Google’s education environments.
Bidirectional sync needs one of the following conditions:
- Google Workspace (aka GSuite) sync with Google Classroom configured
- Azure AD sync with Microsoft Education (School Data Sync) configured
Google Classroom integration lets Chimpa sync classes, students, teachers.
Thanks to Microsoft Education (School Data Sync) integration, Chimpa will sync classes, students, teachers and creates automatically Teams on Microsoft 365, simplifying remote learning.
Screen Preview in Chimpa Teach webapp
Chimpa Teach webapp allows teachers to see all the thumbnail preview of students’ Android devices.
In additional, it is possible to watch a fullscreen preview of a single student device.
With this update, admin can check the screenlight time inside device info view. This info is usefull to take care of IFPs or industrial devices usage.
