Releases

The Spring 2020 update (v13.0.0) is planned for April 2020.

Resco Inspections

Smart questions

Users of Questionnaire Designer can configure simple business logic directly from the questions, instead of having to use more technical Rules editor for the most common rules. For questions, you can control whether they are visible, editable, and required. For groups, you can control whether they are visible and expanded.

Smart default values

Instead of writing a complicated OnLoad rule to add default values to the questionnaire, it is now possible to set the default in the question editor. The default value can be a constant, or in a few most common scenarios a field whose value is fetched for you.
