Newly Redesigned Mobile Application
Our mobile application has received a significant refresh with updates that will dramatically improve the usability of the app. Users will now be able to select specific media and watch in purpose-built galleries and media players, and the new breadcrumbing feature will improve navigation through Procedures and Steps.
Updates to Mobile Remote Collaboration
Remote Collaboration received an overhaul on both iOS and Android, making it more reliable as we continue to support the ability to make calls across platforms between mobile devices, as well as to and from the web portal.
For those building big libraries, the new content management feature will be a huge benefit. Authors can now organize Procedures into meaningful folders, improving the usability and organization of content in the portal. The sorting and filtering of content at the portal has also been updated making it easier for authors to find specific Procedures and content. The new folder structure will also be available to users in the HoloLens and Mobile applications via a system toggle.
- Procedure workflow updates have been made to the HoloLens application to provide a simpler user experience
- Various performance updates have been made to the HoloLens application to provide a smoother feel to moving, resizing, and placing AR elements in space
- Various bug fixes across all three platforms
- Added support for multi-tenant database structure to provide users the option of a discrete back-end data structure for their organization
