My Warwick What's new

What's new in My Warwick

To see new features, you'll need to have the latest version of the My Warwick app on your phone. To ensure that you have the latest version, check for updates in your phone's app store, and if you see a dark "toast" message at the bottom of the app saying that a new version is available, touch the purple button to update your tiles and other content.

Accessibility improvements

Users can now globally opt out of animations and pause/resume auto-updating, animated tiles. If present, we will also respect your device-wide settings.

AEP assessment visibility

Assessments on the alternative examinations portal which are open for submission will now be displayed on the Coursework tile.

Bug fix: tile changes being lost

We've fixed a bug which prevented tile layout changes from being stored properly. This would result in changes to tiles being lost as soon as the app was reopened.

Wed 22 Jan 2020, 10:33

Bug fix: Library book due notifications

We've fixed a bug that prevented members of staff (or other users without an end date set on their library account) from receiving notifications about their checked-out library loans.

Thu 16 Jan 2020, 14:00

Tabula assignment deadline notifications

We'll now send notifications for assignments you need to hand in at 8am on their due date, if there's not already a submission. If the assignment has a non-standard due time (i.e. not 12 noon), we'll send notifications 4 hours before the deadline.

Previously, we would send notifications at midnight on the day an assignment was due. This change does not affect the other notifications sent the day before and 7 days prior to the deadline.

iOS visual fixes

We've fixed some positioning problems on iOS. You might have noticed this with the update banner at the bottom of the screen, or the hidden tiles button. These should now appear in their correct vertical positions, and shouldn't be partially obscured by the tab bar.

Thu 10 Oct 2019, 12:00

New colour schemes

We've added some brand new colour schemes (Lakeside, Oculus and The Slate) to the app. We'll display your profile photo in black and white if you choose our dark theme (The Slate). Under all other circumstances, your photo will display as normal.

Thu 26 Sep 2019, 12:00

News tab

My Warwick now includes a new tab for central university and departmental news within the app. You can pick and choose the news categories you're interested in seeing from the settings menu.
Mon 16 Sep 2019, 12:00

Notification details

On Android, details for alerts can now be expanded in the notification view without having to open the app.

Mon 08 Jul 2019, 12:00

Two-step codes and web links

On Android, two-step authentication notifications allow you to copy the code directly to the clipboard without opening the app.
We've also ensured that links now open in your chosen default browser (e.g. Firefox) rather than always opening in Chrome which may not be installed.
Thu 28 Mar 2019, 12:00

Do not Disturb

We've added a 'Do not Disturb' feature to My Warwick, so that you can stop it from sending you alerts at night, for example. Any alerts which would have been sent when Do not Disturb is on will be queued up and sent shortly after the Do not Disturb period ends instead.

Wed 01 Aug 2018, 11:13

Two-step authentication tokens

We've added a feature to the My Warwick app which automatically shows the 6 digit token you need when signing in to a new device with Warwick two-step authentication turned on. This means that you don't need to install a separate authenticator app or to receive SMS messages in order to use two step authentication at Warwick.

Wed 09 May 2018, 16:28

Academic week numbers

We've added academic week numbers on the Timetable and Events tiles when they're large enough to be able to display extra information (and in individual event cards too).

Thu 03 May 2018, 14:51

O365 Mail and Calendar previews

We've added popup preview windows to the Office 365 Mail and Calendar tiles, so you can easily check the content of an email or calendar event without having to leave the My Warwick app. Emails and calendar events which have extra information available to show are marked with an "info" icon.

Wed 07 Mar 2018, 10:29

Sports tile link

We've added a link from the Sports tile to the Sport Centre booking system so that you can get more details about your bookings and make new bookings.

Mon 26 Feb 2018, 18:36

More details for Event tile items

For some events on the Events tile, there's more detailed information available about the event as well as just its title. Where we can find such additional information, we now show it in a pop-up window that appears when you touch the event title.

Wed 07 Feb 2018, 11:46

Timetable alarms

We've fixed a problem which meant that in certain circumstances iPhone users were unable to turn timetable alarms off.

Fri 02 Feb 2018, 09:29

Improved timetable alarms

We've made changes to timetable alarms to make them work more reliably, and in particular to report more accurately whether they're currently switched on or not.

Mon 08 Jan 2018, 14:29

Alerts for new files

We've added alerts for changes made to files in your H drive if you have a Warwick Accommodation sub-folder. These sub-folders are used to store documentation relating to your off-campus accommodation, and the Accommodation team make changes to files in that folder which can be hard to spot; these alerts are intended to make it easier.

Wed 13 Dec 2017, 11:01

Timetable alarms

We've added alarms for timetable events. To turn these on and control when they should sound (5, 15 or 30 minutes beforehand), go to the Settings screen and touch Timetable alarms. When an alarm goes off, your phone will play a sound and display a notification on your lock screen which includes the title and location for the event.

Fri 01 Dec 2017, 11:00

Library tile improvements

We've improved the performance of the Library tile and added some more specific information for particular types of loan such as short loans.

Wed 22 Nov 2017, 14:00

Warwick Volunteers events

We've added Warwick Volunteers events as a source for the Events tile. As with all sources for this tile, you can choose whether to include it in your view of the tile by going to the preferences screen, then touching Tile preferences, then Events.

Tue 14 Nov 2017, 16:50

Timetable reliability

We've improved the reliability of timetable display, particularly for WBS students, but also for all students at times when the timetable system is under heavy load.

Wed 08 Nov 2017, 16:55

Sports Centre tile

We've added a tile which shows bookings you've made with Warwick Sports Centre.

Thu 02 Nov 2017, 10:00

Tile removal bug

We've fixed a bug which was causing tiles to be removed unintentionally in certain circumstances.

Mon 30 Oct 2017, 14:30

Support for Dynamic Type on iPhone

We've added support for Dynamic Type on iPhones. If you use your phone's settings to make text bigger or smaller than the default, you'll now find that text in the My Warwick app follows your preference.

Tue 24 Oct 2017, 09:15

High contrast option for tiles

We've added a High contrast option to make text on tiles easier to read. To switch this on, go to the preferences screen, touch Colour scheme and then touch the High contrast switch.

Mon 23 Oct 2017, 13:45

Bus tile improvements

We've added buses going to campus as well as those leaving the campus, and we've improved the layout of the bus tile settings screen to group settings by area (Leamington, Kenilworth, etc).

Tue 17 Oct 2017, 10:40

Location permissions

We've improved the way that the My Warwick app asks for permission to use your location. It won't ask as often now, and won't ask repeatedly when you touch the map tile to open the full campus map view.

Thu 12 Oct 2017, 12:15

Choose how to open email

We've added a preference for what to do when you touch a message on the Email tile. You can now open it in Office 365 webmail, or in your phone's native Mail app, or in the Outlook app if you have it installed. To choose what you want to happen, go to the Settings screen, then touch Tile preferences, then O365 Mail.

Tue 10 Oct 2017, 15:05

Photos permission bug

We've fixed a bug which prevented you from choosing a photo to upload because we had neglected to ask for permission to access your phone's photo library and camera.

Mon 02 Oct 2017, 09:10

Map links

We've improved the way links to the campus map are handled by always opening them within the app itself rather than opening a separate web browser.
