Peacock Release

The Peacock release is published. It is the first release for 2018 and includes tons of enhancements, listed bellow:

  • The SURVEYS mobile app is ready for general use
    We are introducing Dynamics Mobile SURVEYS app. The app is available in the Dynamics Mobile marketplace for general use. It allows the organizations to author questionaries and list of customers/outlets to be visited and send this information to their mobile agents. The agents may then take their smartphones or tablets and go out in the field, visiting the outlets and filling out the questionaries with the right answers , attaching camera snapshots and person on-screen signatures. The process may be performed without internet everywhere in the world and the collected data will be stored securely in Dynamics Mobile Cloud. The supervisors may then observe the data collection activities in real-time or off-line and track the mobile agents geo-locations, look into specific questions and answers and analyze the collected data. The SURVEYS mobile app is a perfect match for organizations, that needs to collect important data from the field in a structured way combined with photos, geo-location coordinates, customer signatures and others. The route management capabilities allows the supevisors to plan the list of outlets or customers to be visited by every mobile agent and track the performance of the route during the day. Typical scenarios are Merchandising, Check-list based complance scenarios, Field inspections and many more.
  • Fleet Route Management
    Supervisors may now create and manage routes for each mobile user by assigning stops over the world map in certain order. The routes are then sent to Dynamics Mobile mobile users and they may start following the route without internet connection.
  • Refresh of CORE mobile apps for all platforms
    We've made several releases of our CORE mobile apps for each platform (iOS, Android, Windows 10). The improvements are related to the printing of unicode characaters ( Arabic language ) , visual improvements regarding pending synchronization and new APIs around cloud integration available for the cross-platform developers
  • SyncLog packets export
    Dynamics Mobile Cloud acts as a disaster recovery system for on-premises deployments. Supervisor may now downlad mulitple mobile JSON packets for certain period as a single ZIP file. This feature is usefull for packet analysis during the development cycle or during production times when a recovery actions need to take place.
  • Dynamics Mobile Marketplace
    Dynamics Mobile introduced a central marketplace for mobile apps , allowing the users to quickly search and deploy mobile apps listed in the market place. While the selection of available apps is still limited, we are happy to announce the general readiness of the platform to accept and deploy third-party apps.
  • End Of the Day (EOD) reports
    It might be challenging for the supervisors to know what's happening in the field, when managing large amount of agents outside. This is now easier by using the newly published End Of the Day reports. They provide summary of all activities for the entire fleet or single mobile user.
  • Tons of Dynamics Mobile Studio Enhancements
    We are constantly adding features to Dynamics Mobile Studio to power up the mobile devs with new toys and shorten the development cycle. Dynamics Mobile Studio provides enhanced file management features and brand new mobile-to-backend event subcritpion engine.The event subcritpion engine allows the developer to subscribe to important mobile events and handle them in the cloud, without a need to handle the various complexities like routing, scaling, etc.
  • Mobile Groups Sync options
    The administrators can control if certain group of mobile users within mobile app needs to send transactions to the back-end or not. So, if they are using stand-alone cloud-based app, they might not need to send transactions to the ERP, which can be now controlled with ease.

Finch Release

So, here comes again another release - The Finch. We polished some of the existing reports to make them cleaner, faster and richer

  • Live Monitor filtering, auto-reset and non-geo events displaying
    The The Live Monitor report , allows filtering by Tag in addition to the APP filtering. It means that the users will be able to filter the events by region, department, channel or anything else available as Tag.
    The Live Monitor will reset the list of the events and totals at midnight automativally.
    You may display the Live Monitor on a big TV Set in your operations control room and watch your fleet as it progress on the field. The Live Monitor also will display events without geo-location coordinates in gray on the left side. Yes ,you won't be able to click over the event and see the point on map, but still it gives an idea of what happens on the field and that there are devices with Location Services disabled.
  • Route Compliance charts improvements, planned route pop up and skip reason code
    The Route Compliance report now , allows the user to click over the PLANNED colum to see the list of the planned customers for the day.
    This gives the user immediate feedback about the actual customers who were planned. The Route Compliance Details ( after the user clicks over the mobile user name) displays refreshed charts with more insighs about the compliance. A major difference now is that still the list of the events displays every single event from the day, the charts display only summary based on the number of the different customers and locations visited.
    So for example if a mobile user has visited 2 customers for the day and made 2 sales orders for each for each of them, the charts on top will display 2 visits only, but the table bellow will show 4 events or even more. The detailed compliance also displays the skip reason as well. It gives an answer to why a customer was not visited.
