    Howdy Matt,

    Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback! As many are aware, recent feature releases have not included Windows client support. We wanted to take a moment to recognize frustrations this has caused and provide as much clarity as we can on a future direction.  

    Our long term goal is to sunset the Windows client and provide our customers with a web client that will work on Windows and Mac browsers. We believe this will provide a more universal solution for our customers and allow us to expand and improve features across all platforms. 

    With the impact of COVID-19, we don't have a timeline in mind for a new web client. That said, we do believe that adding new features to the Windows client will delay our ability to reach the best outcome for our customers.  

    As such, while we will continue to support and maintain the current Windows client, we do not plan to add new features to the Windows client in 2020.

    If anything changes, we will provide updates as comments on this post (and on other relevant Feature Request posts).

    We are experiencing the same issue. When will the web client be available? It's very frustrating that the windows client is not being supported before there is an alternative web client available.

    Got sent here for the official statement, but the official statement is there is no timeline to provide the new solution, and by the way there will be no support for new features in the existing solution...

    Every day we don't have a solution is another day I have to look for an alternative to GoCanvas

    Hey ya'll!

    I am very pleased to inform you that our product team has been working to bring the Windows Desktop Client to near parity with the functions that are available on mobile and tablet applications. Those updates will be rolling out over the coming months. When updates are announced, I will be sure to add them as comments to this post (or any other relevant Feature Request post).
