Question Group values are now accessible from outside the specific Question Group. Using a new variable type QuestionGroups, you can now access and adapt the behavior of your template based on the values in separate groups.
Square root and other math operations
Rules editor now natively support more complex math operations on top of your data, such as using the Nth root, exponentiation, and logarithm, directly in the rules.
Find the list of operations here.
Quickly create a new mobile report from template
You can now create new mobile reports directly from the Questionnaire Designer. Select a questionnaire template and click Mobile Reports. The report is automatically associated with the selected template and it reuses its structure.
Image recognition for inspections
Image Recognition question allows an inspector to take a picture of a product or a device to find out what exactly it is. The picture is sent to Azure Custom Vision, where it is recognized by a pre-trained model and the result of the recognition is sent back to the Inspections application along with the probability of the said result. The result and probability are saved to separate questions in the questionnaire. The picture itself is saved within the Image Recognition question. This can be used for identifying a product or an asset from the captured picture or recognize a type of damage.
Choose which commands should be part of your questionnaire template, and what are the actions that follow the commands’ execution. You can use some of the predefined commands or create brand new ones that will become visible to mobile users in the top-right menu. See Configuring commands for more information.
Organize your questionnaire templates in the Designer into folders and subfolders, and navigate between the folders using a breadcrumb trail.
Apple Watch support
Resco Inspections is now available on HoloLens. You can open and navigate the mobile app directly on HoloLens and use the Tagged Image question type to place tags in the space around you. Everything is voice-controlled while filling out the questionnaire template.
User interface improvements
New default project
The default project in Woodford serves as a starting point for all further customizations. The existing default project was redesigned with a new, improved, and more elegant user interface. Colors, icons, and view templates have been adjusted to provide modern and more attractive look & feel. Creating visually appealing mobile applications should now require much less work.
New visualization library for charts

Support for Time type
The Time data type from Salesforce is now available in Resco as well. Modeled as the Whole Number, the format must be set to Duration.
Download only attachments belonging to records available offline
To optimize data download, it is possible to only download attachments belonging to records that are available offline. To do so, enable Mark As Parent Pointer in the properties of a field.
Use Territory and Skill with entity & backend of your choice
In the Schedule Board, Territory and Skill parameters are now available for all entities and backend systems. This means users don’t need to follow the strict boundaries previously set by predefined scenarios.
Previously, Schedule Board contained two types of settings that were accessible from two places. These are now unified and merged into one Settings pane. To make Settings even more usable, you can expand or collapse individual sections to make yourself comfortable and focused on a task at hand.
To simplify the management of multiple environments (such as development, testing, and production), admins are now able to connect organizations and easily pull metadata (entities, fields), localization and data from the connected organizations. For example, this allows to create a new entity structure on the development environment and get it to the testing organization automatically, with minimal effort. Also, you can create a full clone of an organization with just one click.
Delete demo data
It is now possible to easily remove demo data, if those were installed during the process of creating an organization.
Faster loading of forms on Windows 10
The application available from the Windows Store has now significantly improved loading times for forms containing a large number of fields/items. The forms are now being built item by item, eliminating a long preparation phase.
It is now possible to save multiple records with one call, improving efficiency and reducing the time required for the operation. See documentation.
