These release notes provide you with information about the latest upgrade to StarLeaf meetings.
All upgrades take place outside of normal office hours for all regions. Endpoints automatically restart and reconnect to StarLeaf after the upgrade.
StarLeaf operates a system of rolling upgrades across our data centers, which are distributed globally. New features may be enabled separately.
The StarLeaf Scheduler now supports delegated calendar functionality. If you have permissions to edit another person’s calendar, you can schedule a StarLeaf meeting on their behalf. When you schedule a meeting for someone else, this person becomes the meeting organizer.
Participants who use StarLeaf app will see the scheduled meeting in the Meetings tab and can join using the green button.
