Due for release towards the end of February, the WorkMobile team have been extremely busy over the festive period building lots of exciting new features. Here’s a sneaky peek at just one of these…
New Form Designer
Re-engineered from the ground up we’ve taken on board feedback from you to produce a new form designer that’s quicker, better and even easier to use.
Not only have we greatly improved the responsiveness when handling large forms that contained 100’s of questions, we’ve also made some radical improvements to the way that errors are reported to the form builder.
In the current form designer, when you came to save the form, the designer wasn’t particularly helpful in that it would only report one error at a time. The new form designer now maintains a list of issues that need addressing which can be reviewed at any time. Clicking on the error takes you immediately to the control itself which is causing the issue. Any control with a problem which needs addressing is also highlighted visually making identification of issues much easier.
One of the biggest headaches of the current designer is the limited editing window available for editing formulas and lists. The new designer addresses this by offering a fully expanded text window meaning no more copy and paste from Notepad for those complex formulas! In the future we’ll be looking to improve this further still by providing a more visual editor allowing users to pick fields and formulas from lists rather than the need to hand type everything.
We appreciate that not everybody likes change so we’ll be launching the new designer in Beta alongside the original designer as we garner further feedback from users.
