Dynamic Lists

Task, Checklist and Issue lists have all been converted to a new dynamic loading technology. This allows the page to load and then load the list records in a separate action speeding up the overall page load time.
The new technology also allows you to sort the current list based on any column.

Loading Records

When the page loads the first 25 records (based on date) in the list are automatically loaded. You can easily load more by scrolling to the end of the list and clicking the More button.
Click the More button to load 25 more records from the database.
While the load operation is being done, the button text changes from More to Loading...
The indicator to the left shows the number of records currently loaded as well as the total number of records available to be loaded. The More button will disappear once you have loaded all the records in the list.

Sorting List Rows

Sorting a list is as simple as clicking on the column heading. When the list is sorted by a particular column an arrow appears next to the column name to indicate the sort direction.

Click the column heading a second time to reverse the sort.
The sort function will sort the rows currently loaded in the table. To sort newly loaded rows just click the column heading again. Sorting a date field will arrange the rows in order by date while sorting by a text field will arrange the rows alphabetically without taking into account the case of the text.  Checklists can be sorted by percent complete resulting in the rows being arranged in numeric order.

Mobile Optimizations

We’ve made changes to some mobile layouts to make them easier to use on smaller mobile devices like smart phones.

Task List

The Task List screen has been updated so that the text displays closer to its label on more device sizes.
We’ve also removed the buttons from the list so that you can view more records without scrolling.
Don’t’ worry, you can still access all the functionality you need by tapping the Task Record to open the Task Details view.

Task Details Pop-up

The task details pop-up has been improved so that the footer bar takes up less space on all screen sizes.
We’ve also added extra functionality to the buttons in the footer to allow you to complete tasks with from the pop-up. The new buttons function the same way that they did from the list view.

Additional Bug Fixes and Interface Updates

  1. Fixed bulk task copy issue where a new piece of equipment was created in situations where it should not have been.
  2. For issues where the description is greater than 150 characters, the issue list now shows only the first 150 characters. The rest of the description is available in the full details.
  3. Tasks are now searchable by tag in addition to description, equipment name and component name. 
  4. On mobile the issues list has been optimized for reading by allowing the issue description to display across the entire cell instead of being limited to half the cell.
