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.

Case Management

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

This release had a focus on extending key capabilities to improve the ease of configuration based on early adopter feedback.  Improvements were made in run-time performance, especially in high volume situations with complex case configurations.  A series of cosmetic changes and fixes are included.

  • The Wait shape now supports dynamic references.
  • Issues were addressed with the CreatePDF and the CascadingApproval Smartshapes.
  • Attachments have been improved.
  • Issues with the Create Case Type functionality were addressed.
  • The Pega Pulse functionality has been improved, including its performance.
  • When auditing a work item, History is now the default tab.

Class structure expanded for surveys and questions

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now create surveys and questions at any class level. Because there is no longer a restriction on which class of flows can use the Survey and Question smart shapes, you can create more contextual surveys that reference embedded properties, or instances of classes, that you define outside the Work- class structure.

For more information about using the Survey or Question smart shapes in a flow, see Integration methods for surveys.

Locatable pages are deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Locatable pages are deprecated. Use a data page instead. Data pages provide improved performance. When you save a rule that has a Locate Page Activity or when you create an activity of type Locate page, a guardrail warning is displayed indicating that this feature has been deprecated.

For information about data pages, see Data pages.

Like and bookmark Pulse messages

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now like messages that are posted to Pulse and view the number of likes for each message. You can also bookmark the messages that you want to view in your activity feed.

For information about Pulse enhancements, see:

Attach Content control enhancements

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now use the Attach Content control in Pega® Platform to configure compression options that limit the size of files created on a mobile device. For example, you can choose from predefined settings to limit video duration or image size. These settings apply when the user records a new video or takes a new photo, but they do not apply to prerecorded media.

Also, when attaching content to a custom mobile app, users can now select any type of file from any source that is available in the device's native file picker component.

For more information, see Configuring file size options for the Attach content control.

Real-time updates in Pulse

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now view real-time updates of messages in Pulse. If a user posts a comment on a Pulse conversation while you are viewing the conversation, you receive a notification in real time, which you can click to refresh the conversation and see the comment.

For information about Pulse enhancements, see:

Conditional paths added to case life cycle

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now add a conditional path to a process in the life cycle of a case. By defining the decisions that cause a process to follow different paths, you can create cases that support more than one outcome.

For more information about conditional paths, see Conditional paths in a case life cycle.

Receive and reply to push notifications for Pulse messages

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now receive push notifications on your mobile device when another user references you in a Pulse message or likes your messages in a Pulse conversation. You can both receive and reply to the push notifications that you get when another user posts on your profile, adds messages to a Pulse conversation in which you are involved, or posts comments on a case that you are following. To receive push notifications, select mobile push as a notification channel when you configure your notification preferences.

For information about Pulse enhancements, see Pulse enhancements for social collaboration.

Change passwords from Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now change your Pega® Platform password from a mobile device. After your password expires and you try to log in to a custom mobile app, Pega Mobile Client lets you define a new password and verifies it against active password policies.

For more information, see Enabling security policies.
