Warning This page describes a function that has not yet been publicly released, or has been released in beta / preview quality. Subject to change.

The Summer 2021 update (v14.1.0) is planned for June 2021.


New component: button

Questionnaire commands already grant users control over questionnaires but they are a bit out of reach, in the top right corner, perhaps hidden in the hamburger menu. Buttons serve a very similar purpose, but they are parts of the questionnaire, directly in the flow of questions or instructions.

In Questionnaire Designer, you can find buttons as a new type of static component. Simply add a button to your questionnaire, select one of the predefined actions, and you're done.

Optionally, you can modify the look of your button using styles, or define custom action for your button using rules. See buttons for more information.

New questionnaire wizard


Result Viewer improvements

You can now configure which columns do you want to see in the list of questionnaires (available with Resco Cloud and Dynamics backends). You can also include fields from related entities.

Your options for exporting answers from the tool have been greatly improved:

  • In addition to the CSV format, you can now use XLSX.
  • It is now possible to export images.

Tree view

Tree view is a new user interface option for Resco mobile apps, displaying records from multiple entities in a tree-like structure.

Badges on home screen

Badges are tiny numbers displayed over the home screen items that represent the number of records in the view that match a certain condition. This feature is primarily aimed for field service agents who want to be instantly notified on newly submitted incidents (working with the web app, or a mobile app in online mode), but it can be used in many other scenarios.

Automatic refresh of views

The records listed in a view can now reload automatically every x seconds. This function is only available in the online mode and in the web app. It configured on the home screen in Woodford:

  1. Edit the properties of an entity view and go to the Properties tab.
  2. Enable Auto Refresh and set up the refresh interval (in seconds).
  3. Save all changes and publish the app.

New integration option for Resco Cloud

The Integrations function of Woodford allows you to connect your Resco Cloud organization to various systems, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Match entities and fields between the two servers and exchange data. Configured connections can be used in Resco Cloud jobs and workflows to automate sync process.

The following connectors are available in the first release:

  • OData: Connect to any server that supports the Open Data Protocol (OData v4).
  • Resco Cloud: Connect to another organization residing on one of the various cloud servers of Resco (including Resco Inspections, Resco Routes, etc.).
Note Integrations are available since release 14.1 as a preview. Contact us if you want to help us shape this function to better match your needs.

Mobile reports

The Configure Run Report command feature introduced in the previous release gained an additional parameter: autosavesigneddoc controls whether a report should be automatically saved when users sign it.

Storage analyzer

If you in charge of providing support to the end users of Resco mobile apps, you have now an additional tool at your disposal: Storage analyzer is a collection of reports providing statistical data about the local storage of Resco mobile apps, with a particular focus on the database storage and binary documents (blob storage). Full list of available reports:

  • AppData report
