  • Fixed: previously, the app would keep all photos and videos you took in storage even after they synced to the server. This would result in a continually increasing use of storage. The app deletes them now after sync, freeing your device storage up so you can store all the funny memes and pictures of your pets that you like

  • Fixed: if your scheduled job didn’t have a specified date/time, the app would show it as ‘not scheduled’, which was confusing and unhelpful, so we changed it

14th October 2020

Platforms:

  • iOS

Version: 2.11.26938

 

  • New: you can now schedule jobs to be completed and assign them to specific users. Control the date/time as well as priority levels, which work instruction should be done, and more. Users will see their scheduled jobs on the home screen.

  • New: there’s now a setting for your team’s chosen remote expert provider. When you ask for help, it will launch the correct provider for your users.

  • Fixed: if you added a file asset without a file extension, it would crash the app, which isn’t particularly helpful. It doesn’t do that anymore.

  • Fixed: the app was pretty sensitive about importing data collections that contained unparsable characters and symbols. It can be like that sometimes. We’ve asked it to calm down and ignore those characters now.

  • New: if you don’t have many active or scheduled jobs, the app will now suggest workflows for you to complete, making it that little bit easier to get the job done.

  • New: we’ve improved the asset bar, so it’s easier to access the resources you need when completing a workflow.

Platforms:

  • Android

Version: 2.10.26111


  • New: you can now annotate photos! Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: you can now use .url assets as a step attachment. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: step attachments are now shown with their filename inside the app.

  • Fixed: on the home screen, the date for a job would always be shown with the current year, regardless of which year you did the job in. It now shows the correct year, even if it isn’t this year.

  • Fixed: sometimes, data collections wouldn’t consistently sync down to the device, which basically defeats the point of the feature. Your data will now be up-to-date and ship shape, provided you’re online!

21st Aug 2020

Platforms:

  • iOS

Version: 2.10.26112


  • New: you can now use .url assets as a step attachment. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • Fixed: sometimes when you hit undo on a photo annotation more than once, and then hit redo to bring them back, the annotations would return in the wrong order. Now they march to the beat of the drum.

  • Fixed: selection steps didn’t always have the correct background colour. Now they do.

  • Fixed: the photo annotation feature could cause the application to crash, which was not ideal. Annotate away now in the knowledge that the application will not randomly close itself!

  • Fixed: on signature steps, there was sometimes a strange grey border showing up. As creative as we are, this wasn’t intended, so we removed it.

28th July 2020

Platforms:

  • iOS

Version: 2.9.25771


  • Fixed: the app would crash on Media Steps when using an iPad. Order is now restored and it allows you to take a photo or video, which was its intended purpose.

16th July 2020

Platforms:

  • iOS

Version: 2.9.25599


  • New: you can now add markdown into your step descriptions in our Editor, and the apps will display it. Use titles, bullet points, numbering, you name it. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: we added support for Japanese. Just change your device locale!

  • New: we added support for Spanish. Just change your device locale!

  • New: you can now click on a photo you've taken to go to an annotation view. Draw away! Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: you can now use dynamic variables in your workflows. This means you can make use of previous inputs and other workflow data in your workflow steps. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: you can now add data collections into your workflows. The app will sync down your data collection and it can be used within a workflow. For example, if you have a table of on-site equipment and you need to look up specific records. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: we’ve overhauled the user interface when you’re outside of an active job. Hopefully it’s more intuitive and responsive, please let us know what you think!

  • New: you can now log into the app using Google or Microsoft login. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: the app will now give you smart workflow suggestions on the home screen. If you regularly complete a certain workflow, or have a new one assigned to you, you will be able to access it quickly from the home screen.

  • New: you will now get validation warnings on Selection Steps.

  • New: we added Date/Time Steps, so now you can use them - helpful right? Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: we added Dynamic Selection Steps. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: if you weren’t already excited about Dynamic Selection Steps, we also added URL-based Dynamic Selection Steps! We’re thrilled too. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • New: you can now use OnSight Connect by our partner Librestream to make a video call. Visit our Knowledge Base to find out more!

  • Fixed: sometimes, the app would show options to abandon or resume a job where it wasn’t possible, because the job had already been abandoned. That was pretty misleading and unhelpful, so it doesn’t do that anymore.

  • Fixed: some of the touch points on icons on a Media Step were small, meaning they were hard to press. That was really annoying wasn’t it? We made them bigger.

  • Fixed: long text on Decision Step buttons would truncate in a really messy way. We unmessified it. That’s a word, look it up.

  • Fixed: sometimes, when you had to login again, the app wouldn’t automatically show the login screen. An oversight on our part, whoops! It shows now.

26th June 2020

Platforms:

Version: 2.8.24963

  • New: we made changes to the Android sync mechanism to improve performance. While your data would always sync, it could often be a bit slow. It should happen a little faster now!

  • New: we have increased our support for Bluetooth connected scanners and keyboards

  • New: we have added support for 1-2-8 barcodes in our barcode step, which you can use 365 days a year. So 128/365

  • New: user experience can be very subjective. What one person likes, somebody else dislikes. We have made a number of UX changes in the app, and we like them. Please let us know if you do too!

  • Fixed: the app didn’t tell you when it had no internet connection if you were connected to Wifi. This was unhelpful, so we changed it

  • Fixed: form steps didn’t always set the correct default values for the workflow. By default, they do now

  • Fixed: the abandon job button would be displayed on completed and already abandoned jobs, which is confusing as you can’t abandon something you already abandoned. Now you can only abandon an active job, which makes more sense

  • Fixed: you should only be able to log into the app with a user account that has permission to use the app (execute permission). Previously it didn’t give you a login error, which was somewhat of an oversight. It does now

  • Fixed: legacy WorkfloPlus decision steps would show the options ‘yes’, ‘no’ and ‘other’ in the wrong order, which wasn’t done on purpose to see if you were paying attention. They now show in the correct order and all is ok again with the world

  • Fixed: sometimes the abandon job option would show up twice for no particular reason. It doesn’t do that anymore

  • Fixed: we forgot that numbers can be negative as well as positive. I guess we’re just glass half full people. We’ve changed it now so that on numeric steps, you can enter a negative number like 

  •  Fixed: changing the font size on Android would cause the application to crash. Whoops. It doesn’t crash anymore
