Features & Enhancements


Bug Fixes

Item Description
Bug An issue was fixed that caused form views to sometimes reset and lose progress.
Bug Application documentation for each column will now display the expression used for Reset on edit? if there is one in use. Previously a bug caused the documentation to show No even if there was an expression being used. This bug affected the application documentation only, and not the functionality of the reset on edit feature.

Deployed to all.

Android updates

An Android update (v14.6) will be released to the Play Store and will be rolled out to all users gradually over the next few weeks.

Item Description
Feature The barcode scanner now beeps when a barcode is detected.
Bug An issue was fixed where the new barcode scanner would return a partial result for specific types of barcodes (a driver's license, for example).
Bug An issue was fixed with offline caching on apps with secure image access.
