Report Builder Upgrade

With support of the current Report Builder - SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 (SSRS) coming to an end with Microsoft, we've re-engineered some of the 'under-the-hood' technologies that we rely on and have been deprecated in later releases of SSRS. This enables us to use SSRS 2016.

Following this release we'll undertake a programme of carrying out report upgrades on an account by account basis. This activity will be coordinated via our support desk who will contact account holders when the upgrade is due to occur.

Ability to Rename Report Attachments

If you're currently using report attachments, you'll know that there's currently no way to control the name of the file. For example you may want the attached filename to contain the name of the customer and a job reference.

This new feature allows you to do just that by giving you the ability to pick a field from the WorkMobile form as the name of the file attachment. You can use expressions to build up a filename in the format that you require.

Auto App Log-off

You now have the ability to force mobile users to logout after a fixed period of time. This feature is defined at the user group level allowing to define different policies for different users.

A minor UI change on the mobile App to help overcome some confusion with users saving forms to drafts rather than saving as complete.

The new menu bar within the forms screen now looks like the below:-
