Image of the new Lifesize Admin Console with data call-outsWe are pleased to announce that the new Lifesize Admin Console is now enabled on all accounts.


With the launch of our new cloud service and video conferencing solutions, this redesign is intended to improve the experience of setting up and managing Lifesize accounts for administrators and super-users.


If you took the opportunity to preview the new Admin Console over the past several weeks, you’re probably familiar with many of the changes. But if you didn’t (or just need a refresher), please see the notable improvements and removals below:


Notable Improvements

  • Updated interface consistent with the Lifesize web, desktop, and mobile app experience
  • Infinite scroll for faster load times and easier navigation
  • Updated menu items and information labels
    • Main menu > Directory changed to Users
    • Main menu > Video Systems changed to Room Systems
      • Room Systems > Audio Type changed to Controller
      • Room Systems Settings > Firmware Version changed to Version
    • Main menu > Now includes Account Settings 
  • Edit the name of a Room System
  • Unpair a Room System from cloud, but keep the extension to use with another Room System
  • Easily identify a Lifesize Dash room trial, convert a Lifesize Dash trial to a paid room system, and disconnect the tablet associated with a Lifesize Dash room
  • Create one-time meetings from Admin Console if enabled for the account
  • More intuitive settings for recording permissions


Notable Removals*

  • Notification Center removed from top navigation (previously accessible via a bell icon)
  • Place a Call link removed (previously accessible via user drop-down menu)
  • Call Quality, Recording Hours, and Live Stream Hours donut charts removed from the dashboard
  • Call quality metrics for User and Room System drilldown reports removed


* Lifesize is currently evaluating the implementation of these features to improve the presentation and/or accuracy of the information provided in order to deliver the best possible experience for account administrators.


We also look forward to introducing more features and restoring additional functionality to the new Admin Console in the weeks ahead, to include:

  • When a user is deleted, meetings for which they were the owner or moderator will be reassigned to the admin (rather than deleted)
  • The ability to share recordings publicly or within your account
  • Search, sort, and date filters for Recordings feed
  • Live Stream History available from the Dashboard
