Tech tip #6: Keep your mobile app up to date
With every new release you have the option to publish your app project in the latest version. It’s tempting to do so, but there is one thing to remember.
You must ensure that all the mobile users in this app project are using the newest version of Resco mobile app too. If your Woodford version is newer than the app version of your mobile users, consider changing to an older Publish Version to ensure compatibility.
Otherwise, your mobile users might be unable to synchronize.
How to change a Publish Version
Open your app project.
On a toolbar, navigate to Publish Version.
Select the Publish Version that matches the app version of your mobile users.
Publish your app project.
If you want to check the app version of all your devices, navigate to Woodford > Device Control.
You can also learn more about how to publish with older version on Resco Wiki.
Tech tip #7: Display date in various formats
It’s highly likely that if you are utilizing any of the Resco applications, you are displaying the date somewhere in your questionnaires or reports.
The trick is to set the correct format of the date on your device, not in the application. So, for example, if your device language is French – the date will be shown in French date format.
