Why should you test the beta versions of Resco’s major updates?
We’ve all been there: You install a new update of your favorite app and after launch you realize that some things have changed. Maybe they’ve just refreshed the button colors. But they also could have moved the button somewhere else or modified how it works altogether.
That’s why public beta testing exists – users can try a solution before its official release and provide feedback in case something isn’t working as it’s supposed to or expected.
And we’re inviting customers & partners to join Resco’s beta testing program, offering beta versions before each quarterly update.
Why should you join?
Beta testing will help you identify a problem before it becomes one.
Before each official release (Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter Update), we strongly recommend to test the beta and verify that the new version works well within your environment.
We want to help you avoid any issues a new update might cause to you. This is particularly beneficial for those who have a very heavy customization in place or peculiar settings on the server side.
How does it work?
We are providing iOS, Android and Windows beta versions of the application prior to the release (usually about two weeks before the final release of the app).
After we receive your feedback, we will start working on fixes (if any issues occur) and incorporate them into the application that will be released in the end.
How to get your beta?
If you are interested to test the app on iOS, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the e-mail address associated with your Apple ID, so we can add you to our TestFlight beta testing list. You will then automatically receive a TestFlight email notification regarding the availability of a new public pre-release. If you have already requested a pre-release version of Resco Mobile CRM for iOS in the past, you don’t need to contact us with each new update.
If you are interested to test the app on Android, you can join our public beta testing program at: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/net.resco.mobilecrm
Windows Store (Windows 10)
If you are interested in the Windows Store app (Windows 10) testing, send an e-mail to email@example.com. Please include your Microsoft account e-mail address, and we will add you to our Package Flight testing group. You will then automatically receive email notifications regarding the availability of each new public pre-release. If you have already requested a pre-release of the Windows Store version in the past, you don’t need to contact us with each new update.
Additionally, as the Windows Store Package Flight program isn’t suitable for some, we’ve decided to introduce an alternative way of obtaining the Windows Store (Windows 10) app. You can download the app Beta installer from our web here, and side-load it to your computer. It’s signed with a trusted certificate and the beta version can be distinguished from the production build by the red background and app title “Mobile CRM Development”. We recommend uninstalling your current Resco Windows Store app before installing the beta.
Windows 7 or newer
If you’d like to test the app on Windows desktop, you can download it from the following link: www.resco.net/downloads/MobileCRM_Win7_Beta.msi
Looking forward to your observations & impressions 🙂
