Our newest release includes a Calendar feature which will likely be familiar to users of our RMS web application. In this post we’ll explain how it works and cover its capabilities.
The latest release of our iOS app is available to download here, or via your MDM provider.
A Powerful Event View
The new Calendar View allows users to:
- Browse events within an intuitive calendar interface
- Create, read, update and delete events
- Quickly access events on today’s date
- Share events with other team members
The calendar can be accessed by navigating to the application’s main menu and selecting ‘Calendar’. Please note that the calendar feature is only available to clients who have access to Bipsync’s Process Management Suite.
The feature’s design will feel familiar to regular iOS users. When first navigating to the Calendar screen, the app will automatically show events for the current date; these can be reached at any time by selecting the ‘Today’ button on the bottom left of the screen. The calendar respects convention within the user’s time zone: for example, if a user is in the UK the calendar will start with Monday as the first day of the week, whereas if the user is in the US the calendar will start with Sunday.
A new event can be created by tapping on the ‘+’ icon on the top right of the calendar view. Tapping on the icon will show an Event detail screen where users can enter the details of the event including its title, description, start date and end date, plus any custom fields that have been configured.
Existing events are highlighted with a small grey indicator underneath a date in the calendar view. Multiple day events are also highlighted in the same manner. Tap on a date to view all events on that day. From here, tap an event to view it in full. Events can be shared, or made private, from the share icon in the bottom right.
Events are synced automatically, so users don’t have to leave the Calendar interface to fetch new or updated events.
This latest Calendar feature is available now in Bipsync Notes iOS so please try it out, and do let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
