To make apps more user friendly and intuitive we try and use image lists wherever we can to help users. Below are some visual examples of some image lists that have been used across the platform, please contact us if you would like any of these on your site.
Options to allow self registration of users with a given code has been enabled. This will allow the setup of one or many special codes, with expiry dates to allow different levels of access and use of a Softools site. Especially useful for allowing users to try systems for a limited period, or to give access to a small set of apps and data for users who self register.
The export to Microsoft Word functionality has been extended to allow list reports to include lower level detail such as record specific charts. This would allow a complete list of records to be shown with charts displaying detailed information on each chart.
A new field type called "Draw" has been enabled which allows mobile and touch enabled devices to write in a an area. This forms a picture which is then saved, but common users are simple sketches and signature blocks or sign offs.
A new Bar Code scanner field type has been enabled. This is an extension of a text field , where a mobile user can use a mobile device camera to read a barcode to fill the text field.
Bring your templates to life with a colour and imagery. Our experience has shown that making data entry forms more colourful aids user experience and buy in.
As an App builder, you can now add icons to your templates (with zero code) within AppStudio. Icons would usually be context sensitive, but can help with branding too!
This nifty little feature enables the user to click 'forwards' and 'back' between records and will auto-save whilst doing so. This means you can navigate through a list of projects quickly and easily whilst seeing the complete set of data. It is also great for Audits and Assessments – moving from one topic to another with a single click.Read More
