Geolocation tracking for the latest mobile client

Valid from Pega Version 8

The latest version of Pega Mobile Client™ now supports geolocation tracking for offline-enabled mobile apps. You can enable constant tracking when users work on specific cases from their worklists. This enhancement helps audit the trail of the case and increase the efficiency of your mobile users. For example, dispatchers at headquarters can track the routes of field workers and more effectively assign them tasks based on their current location.

For more information, see Tracking mobile users based on geolocation data.

Support for building apps as Android App Bundles

Valid from Pega Version 8.6.1

As of August 2021, Google Play Store requires that you submit new apps in the Android App Bundle publishing format instead of the APK format. You can now build Pega mobile apps in the Android App Bundle format so that they comply with this new requirement.

For more information about generating installation packages for Pega mobile apps, see Generating installation packages. For more information about the Android App Bundle publishing format, see the Android for Developers documentation.

Support for controlling binary file upload in Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The Client Store API of Pega® Mobile Client has been modified so that you can suspend and resume the process of uploading binary files to the server. You can also check the state of the file uploading process. As a result, custom mobile app users can process their work items without having to wait for the synchronization process to finish.

For more information, see Pega Mobile Client API methods for controlling binary data upload and Client Store API.

Support for large binary data item storage in Pega Mobile Client and offline case attachments in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Pega® Mobile Client can now store and synchronize large binary data items and their corresponding actions from the action queue on Android and iOS devices. As a result, custom mobile app users can view, attach, and delete data files, whether the device is online or offline. For this function to work, you must enable offline case attachment support, which allows your custom mobile apps to synchronize case attachments between the Pega Platform and the mobile device.

For more information, see Enabling offline case attachments support and Client Store API.

Improvements in the process engine for offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The offline process engine includes several improvements. To provide more options when you develop an offline-enabled application, a decision shape as the first shape in a flow and parameters for the CreateNewWork action are now supported. Offline-enabled applications now also display information about the last data synchronization.

For more information, see Flow processing in offline mode.

Touch response supported on mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When displayed on a mobile device, all active elements of the Pega® Platform user interface now respond to touch by changing their appearance. No additional configuration is available or necessary.

Setting a build version of the custom mobile app

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you build a custom mobile app, you can now configure a build version and leave the custom mobile app version unchanged. This way you can upload an updated custom mobile app to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store without having to increment the app version.

For more information, see Setting the app build version.

Custom mobile app assets file validation at upload

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you build a custom mobile app, and upload branding assets or custom modules within a compressed file, Pega® Platform validates the file that you upload and displays confirmation and warning messages. For more information, see Uploading branding assets and custom modules.

New appearance of smart app banners

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you build a custom mobile app, you can use smart app banners to advertise your app. The look of these smart app banners has been modernized. Also, if you upload branding assets to customize the appearance of your custom mobile app, the smart app banners now display an icon that you upload as the main icon of your custom mobile app.

For more information, see Adding a banner for mobile app download.

Ability to delete the Mobile channel interface

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you build a Pega® Platform application, you can create a mobile app for your users. When you no longer need the mobile app, you can now delete an existing Mobile channel interface, just like any other channel that is available from the Channels and interfaces landing page.

For more information, see Channels and interfaces.
