Howdy everyone! We have just released a new version of the GoCanvas mobile app. This release includes improvements to navigating the menus outside of a submission and introduces a new screen to manage your current tasks.
As with previous updates, this version is being released as a phased rollout, to provide a smooth transition for GoCanvas users. Android and iOS users should see this update hit the App Store and the Google Play Store soon! Android users can also download the latest version directly from http://www.gocanvas.com/m.
Thank you, as always, for your feedback on how we can make your experience using GoCanvas more powerful.
Introducing the Tasks screen
There’s a new screen on the block! On the Tasks screen, you can see all of your dispatches and workflows in one place. No more digging into each app to see what's available.
The Tasks banner on the top of your Apps list tells you how many workflows and dispatches you've been assigned and how many of them are scheduled for today. Clicking this banner will open the full Tasks screen.
We have also changed how the pending tasks for each App appear on your device. Instead of separate icons for workflows, dispatches, and saved submissions, we have just one counter next to an App with In-Progress work, and it tells you exactly how many items are in progress for that app.
Remember the 7 day dispatch feature? These also appear on Tasks and allow users to see a preview of their work for the next 7 days. If you want to turn this on for your accounts, please contact your Account Executive or reach out to our Support Team.
Other navigation updates
The Sync option has been improved for more access on multiple screens. The Sync button will now always appear on the top of the Apps screen and Tasks screen. You can also hold and pull down on the screen to sync your device.
Settings have moved under the new More button at the bottom of the screen. We've also reorganized how the different options appear on the Settings screen, for ease of use and a smoother experience.
