Tech tip #1: Advanced report configuration
Different mobile reports might have different storage, format, or action requirements. You can easily configure the desired settings by using Advanced report configuration.
This way you not only save time for your mobile users, but also eliminate errors in the field. How to configure Advance report settings:
Open the form or questionnaire you want to run a report from.
Click Commands or Edit on a toolbar to start the command editor.
Add the Run Mobile Report command to the list of selected commands.
Select the new command and click Properties, then click Advanced report configuration.
Tech tip #2: How to configure security policy for mobile users
Mobile devices are often exposed to different threats than desktop computers.
Therefore, it is a good idea to adjust the Resco default security policy based on your requirements. You can lock your application after business hours or require login anytime your users are inactive for a certain amount of time.
How to configure a new security policy:
Open Woodford and select Device Control.
Click New Policy on the toolbar, and then set the security policy properties based on your requirements.
Try Resco’s auto-assign feature for mobile users. Users who log in to your backend server from a mobile device receive a license, as long as there’s a required type of user license available (Standard/Inspections).
When auto-assign is disabled, users are granted a temporary two-week license, allowing administrators to assign a permanent license during this grace period.
Additionally, you can enable Auto-free up of unused licenses. If all licenses are assigned, a new user will receive one previously used by a user who hasn’t synced for 90-days.
Where to set it up?
Navigate to Settings > Organization settings.
Select Auto-assign licenses and/or Auto-free up unused licenses based on your requirements.
Tech tip #4: Optimize sync performance with diagnostic sync logs
Would you like to get configuration hints in your Sync log and increase your app performance?
Enable Diagnostic Sync Logs, and get more detailed information about each entity download. This type of log can be an excellent starting point for troubleshooting and identifying issues with uploaded records.
How to enable Diagnostic Sync Logs:
Open your app project.
Navigate to Settings > Configuration.
Go to the Offline Data Sync tab.
Scroll down to Sync Errors.
Set Diagnostic Sync Logs to “True”.
By enabling this setting, Diagnostic Sync Logs will be activated for all users in your project. This may increase space usage if synced to the server using the sync dashboard.
