Overview of what’s new

General Feature Enhancements

  • Added the ability for Authors to ‘Request Access’ to edit a Template that is being edited by another user and for that user to accept or decline
  • Added deep links into the iPad application. Users can hit a link and go directly to a Job or an Asset in Manifest for iPadOS
  • Added support for sign in using SAML and Okta
  • Added the ability to show 3D Models when previewing a Template in AR Mode
  • Expanded the Asset Management Search function to return results if there are matches for ID, Serial Number, Asset Tag ID, and Internal ID in addition to Asset Class name
  • Updated Job Board to save the last Location

UI/UX Changes

  • Application now warns user if they scan an Alignment tag before scanning the Asset Tag

Sub Jobs

  • Reviewing completed Jobs will now go into Sub Jobs (if applicable)
  • UI Improvements when a Job links to a Sub Job for a different Asset to make it more clear to the Operator that they must indicate which Asset they will be working on and why

Offline Work

  • Improved user flow so if an Operator selects “Go Offline” the application will automatically logout and prompt for the Offline Pin, rather than leaving them at the Sign in screen
  • Separated out categories for displaying and clearing Data & Storage. Clearing Jobs from Offline Work Package is also now handled separately.
