Navigation for Android Users

Our Product and Development teams have been busy working on a few new updates that will help improve the functionality of FieldAware.

Support for French on FieldAware WebApp

We are excited to announce that the FieldAware WebApp will soon support US English, UK English and French!
With this new feature, our users will be able to view the WebApp, Mobiles and Customer Portal in their preferred language. Support for French on the WebApp will be released in an upcoming Minor Release in the next week or two. We will be adding support for additional languages soon.

Dropping Support for 1.20 on Sync Server

At the end of October, our Development team will release a Minor Release which will drop the support for mobile devices running FieldAware versions 1.20 or older.
This decision is part of the ongoing maintenance of the Sync Server in order to improve functionality and stability of the product.

Dropping Support for iOS 8

In the coming weeks, our Development team will release a Minor Release which will drop support for users running iOS 8 and older on their mobile devices.

This is a decision made by our Development team In order for FieldAware to continue to offer the latest features using the recommended procedures by Apple.
Users who are running iOS 8 are encouraged to update their devices to iOS 9 or newer in order to continue benefitting from the latest features FieldAware offers. Users must update their devices prior to release date in order to use the current versions of FieldAware.

New Navigation for Android Users

In an upcoming release, our Android users will notice new navigation on their mobile devices. This change involves the introduction of a back arrow when users navigate through a Job and into other areas of the FieldAware Android application.
Currently, a menu option (three horizontal lines) is provided at the top left on all screens that allows users to jump to any area of the FieldAware Android app on demand.

With the new navigation workflow, a menu option will only display on the main screen within the application. All subsequent screens will display a back arrow in the top left corner of the screen instead of the menu option. Users will use the back arrow to return to the main screen before opening the menu.

This change is more inline with the Android guidelines, will offer better performance, and allows for easier navigation between pages of the application while offering a more standardized workflow.
