Remote device log retrieval from online-only mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

In addition to device logs from offline-enabled mobile apps, Pega Mobile Client™ can now upload device logs from online-only mobile apps. The upload to Pega Platform™ starts when a user restarts the mobile app. You retrieve device logs from a specific device to support remote users and troubleshoot mobile apps.

For more information, see Retrieving device logs.

Improved mobile user experience with spaces

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Spaces in mobile apps have been enhanced to provide a wider screen area for navigation between content tabs such as Pulse, Boards, Subspaces, and Tasks. Mobile users can now use native selection controls to choose from the same space-specific actions that are available to users of desktop-based applications. The enhancement improves the usability of spaces and promotes collaboration between mobile users.

Spaces on mobile apps do not require any additional configuration.

For more information about spaces, see Collaborating with users by using spaces.

Increased display area in mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Mobile apps now support hiding the top and bottom bars when the user scrolls down. When the user scrolls up, the bars appear again. This enhancement improves the mobile user experience by presenting more data on the screen, for example, a longer list of items.

For more information, see Advanced layout options.

Mobile apps display skeletons for the initial screen load

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Android and iOS mobile apps now display a skeleton before the initial screen loads, which enhances user experience and provides faster response to user actions on complex mobile screens or over slow networks. Until the initial screen is ready to be displayed, Pega Platform™ displays an empty placeholder that imitates the actual user interface.

Skeletons for the initial screen in mobile apps do not require any additional configuration.

File sharing improvements in custom mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Case management in custom mobile apps that are built for Android and iOS using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ is now improved with the enhanced Attach content control. You can now attach files of any type from the device storage and from cloud services, for example, Google Drive or iCloud, or from other mobile apps that are installed on the device. Additionally, you can share any file attachments, except for signature files, in external mobile apps.

For more information, see Enabling attaching files to an application.

Support for Pega Infinity Mobile Client in offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

To take advantage of Pega Platform™ offline features, you can now build offline-enabled applications using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™. An offline-enabled application is built with Pega Infinity Mobile Client by default, and is fast to create and load. 

For more information, see Build offline-enabled applications using Pega Infinity Mobile Client, Offline-enabled application and Pega Infinity Mobile Client, and Pega Mobility and mobile clients.

New ClientStore JavaScript API for offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

For offline-enabled applications built using Pega Infinity Mobile Client™, you can now take advantage of a new window.pms.plugins.clientstore JavaScript API. The improved API is based on promises and events instead of callbacks and listeners, and replaces the previously available window.launchbox.PRPC.ClientStore JavaScript API which is now deprecated.

Native header with left and right actions for mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

With Pega Infinity Mobile Client™, mobile apps can now use a native header with custom left and right actions for navigation. A native header standardizes the user experience of navigating between the screens of your app. For example, users can navigate to the previous screen with a swipe right gesture or the native back button.

For more information, see Enhancing a mobile app with the native header.

Mobile search with sources from any data page

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

When you configure search for mobile apps, you create custom categories that limit the scope of the search and group the search results. In the previous versions of Pega Platform™, you had to add specific properties to the data page that you wanted to use as a source for a search category. Now, mobile search categories support any data page without modifications to help you effectively configure mobile search.

For more information, see Configuring categories for mobile search.

Faster starting offline-enabled mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

Pega Platform™ and Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ now support access group data prepackaging when you build the executable files for an offline-enabled mobile app. This shortens the time needed to start a mobile app for the first time, because only the data that differs between the package and the current server state is synchronized. The data that is prepackaged comes from the access group cache, and you can decide what access group cache data should be excluded or additionally included in the package.

For more information, see Enabling access group data prepackaging during build.
