GroupTalk Dispatch with Mute Groups
2019-02-28

Mute Groups can be used to prevent audio feedback loops of from nearby users. This solves the problem when multiple Dispatchers are located in the same room and use external speakers or Desktop microphones with built in speakers and the voice of the operators can be heard both “over the shoulder” and through the GroupTalk PC Dispatcher.

To make use of this feature, first create the Mute Group as needed and then assign them to user categories. Users belonging to that user category will then have the option to select a mute group among from those available. Users with the same mute group will then not hear each others voice transmission. This feature is currently available for dispatchers only.

The “DETAILED SPECIFICATION” will list each and every license and the associated Cost Center, this will state what type of license it is; Group PTT, panic alarm, etc. and if it is annual, monthly or daily licenses. The “TOTALS PER COST CENTER” will aggregate the costs per Cost Center and provide a condensed specification with the totals per Cost Center. The “TOTALS PER COST CENTER” is generally the information that customers are most interested in.

CallSign / status label in the GroupTalk app
2018-11-17

Ability to create “Callsigns”. Callsigns are configured similar to labels. Enable and name the “callsign” field under “User labels” on the organisation page in web admin, then you can set the callsign value for each user on their user pages. This value is also editable by the user through the mobile app, when enabled.

This feature can for example be used for security guards working on trains, where they can use the Callsign to enter the train number which they are currently working on. Another example is for a gate keeper at a large construction site, where they can enter the actual gate number that they are working at.

One-time code for GroupTalk authentication
2018-10-18

You can log into GroupTalk using SMS authentication, email authentication or user name and password. Most recently we have added support for “One-time code” authentication. This is very convenient for users with devices that has a display, but does not have the ability to enter text. It is also convenient for a central admin to quickly add a remote user with a smartphone.

By selecting the “One-time code” option on the device a 6 character code will be displayed. Next the web admin shall select “Assign a one-time code” for the corresponding user and enter the code.
