  • Workflows

Synchronizing Files

After logging in successfully, the iPad client should automatically re-synch the list of projects that are available to this user. There are also the following options available in the “settings” menu – see the diagram below:
 



 

Synchronize: This option re-synchronises the list of available projects for the logged in user. Occasionally, this option may be required when a new project has been published but the iPad client has not re-synched via a re-login activity…

 

Load All Projects: Same as “Synchronise”…

 

Load Recent Projects: This option will load the user’s available projects but in order of the most recent first…

 

Ordering of Project List (Might be referred to as FORMS in a newer version)

After logging into the iPad Client, there are 2 ways to order the list of displayed projects.

Alphabetic Order: To order the projects in alphabetic order, click the “A-Z” button found at the top right hand corner of the iPad client:

Tips and Tricks

In the iPad client, the following buttons appear and their purpose and function are as follows:

 

Using the INK Question type:

General form navigation is achieved by the “Back – Home – Next” buttons as shown in the image below

 

Attachments:

With the iPad client, content library items supporting “image uploads” are supported.  In such a scenario, it’s possible to take pictures and then attach them to a project as normal. However, this will not work if you’re trying to attach things like Document fragments, etc.

 

Repeating Rows with multiple columns:

Projects with repeated rows which have multiple columns need to be configured for the iPad App as opposed to being designed for PRODUCE and then ported to the App.

 

In the example described (Project - Geoff - iPad - AutoLogic_in_Repeating_Section at http://hosted.intelledox.com/IxQAT/), we have A Group Logic question with 2 answers – “THIS User?” and “OTHER User?”

 

When neither are selected, only 4 columns will be displayed in the repeating section. When even one of them is selected, a 5’th column is added (Project - Geoff - iPad - AutoLogic_in_Repeating_Section at http://hosted.intelledox.com/IxQAT/).

 
Since there are a maximum of 5 columns, the column widths need to be configured using the column percentage settings. Each column is set to a maximum of 20% so that all 5 columns fit within the 100% display real estate:



 

Within each column, all user prompts should be set to a maximum number of pixels – in this example, pixel vales of between 150 – 170 for each user prompt are sufficient to prevent displayed columns from overwriting each other:




 

On the iPad client, this will display as follows:
