This live tile is divided into two categories: Clients & Planning.
Clients will give you an overview of the clients in your Nedap ONS company. Click on a client from the live tile and you’ll be taken to the Nedap ONS website. Use the search bar to search for more clients and choose ‘Load more’ to load more clients into the live tile overview.
My planning is a representation of appointments with clients. You can navigate through dates, using the arrows pointing left and right.
Click on an appointment from the live tile and you’ll be redirected to the Nedap ONS website.
Here's an example of the "my schedule live tile - week view":
Hover your mouse over an appointment to view more information. Some appointments are presented in a different color, depending on the state (type of event/urgency).
When setting up the Nedap ONS connection, a client certificate configuration is used. To set up the connection, go to:
Settings > Nedap ONS connections > New.
Nedap ONS has two different environments.
|STAGING||Test your connector on a customer’s test environment||https://api-staging.ons.io|
|PRODUCTION||Run your connector on a customer’s production environment||https://api.ons.io|
Important: Due to security reasons, you will have to fill in the information from top to bottom. You cannot upload the certificate first, before filling in the name and Api url first. If you do, the fields will be cleared after clicking on 'Add'.
After you filled in the correct information, click on 'Add' and Choose 'Save'. Now you're ready to add the Nedap ONS live tile to you Workspace.
Important note from NEDAP ONS:
Our certificates are standard valid for 1 year. Put a reminder in your calendar to request a new certificate 1 month before the expiration date of the certificate. It is your responsibility to make sure this happens on time. We do not send reminders.
In addition to the Nedap ONS MicroApp, you can also configure shortcuts with deep links to specific sections of Nedap ONS. These deep links can be configured as shortcuts in the Workspace and provide a seamless user experience via Single Sign-On (SSO).
Based on customer feedback we provide the below three examples, but there are also other Nedap ONS components which could be made accessible via deep links and work in the same way.
A deep link contains two sections:
- Customer environment URL
- Generic URL to Nedap ONS component
Using SSO login
If you are using an external identity provider like Okta or HelloID, please use the format of the URL below:
The first section refers to the link behind the blue SSO button in the ONS login window shown below:
The second section contains the generic URL to the desired Nedap ONS component.
Activate the app
Navigate to the App store by clicking on the waffle-icon to add the Nedap ONS tile to your Workspace.
You can configurate the app settings, manage who has access to the app and assign app owners as shown in the example below.
Note: you will not be able to add the app to your Workspace, without having configured the Nedap ONS connection first.
To add the app to your Workspace, in the upper left corner click on:
Once added to your Workspace, right-click on the tile to configure (edit) the desired app settings. Use the arrows pointing up or downwards to change position of the tabs (clients and planning), which will determine what you see first from the live tile overview.
Tip: Add the Nedap ONS tile twice to your Workspace, one for clients and the other one for the planning overview.
New feature and missing data?
When you are in production, it can happen that the overview doesn't load or data is missing. It could be the case that these features are only accessible in the staging environment.
This concerns the staging/production environment from Nedap ONS and not the Workspace.
When new features become available, a certificate has to be requested for the staging environment first. A new feature needs to be approved first, before we can move it into production.
Would you like to help us to make this data available a.s.a.p. in production environment? Request a staging certificate and provide us with the relevant information. In collaboration with Nedap ONS, we will make sure these new features will integrate within our live tile.
