Low-code styling in mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The mobile channel now supports enhanced low-code styling and branding of mobile apps. For example, you can customize app icons in three different ways: by uploading an image, by selecting from a list of font icons, or by using the default text-based icons. This enhancement helps you to conveniently customize the look of mobile apps to match the branding guidelines of your company and provide a consistent experience for users across different channels.

For more information, see Applying a custom theme to mobile apps.

Offline support for Cosmos-based mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Mobile apps that are based on the Cosmos design system now support offline mode. Previously, offline-enabled apps had to rely on the classic look. Now, you can use the low-code Cosmos solutions to design apps that operate reliably regardless of the connection status. 

For more information, see Designing apps for offline mode.

Enhanced search in the mobile channel

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The search configuration now includes up to three additional secondary fields, such as the case ID, category, cost, date, owner, and active channel. The enhancement increases the usability of search on mobile apps and provides more contextual information in the search results.

For more information, see Adding a search gadget.

Improved mobile channel user experience

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Mobile channel authoring now includes two significant enhancements to the user experience. The new instant run-time preview makes security configuration more convenient. In addition, the offline tab is now present by default, to help you build offline-enabled mobile apps and complete assignments in areas with limited connectivity.

Enhanced swipe support for case actions

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

UI authoring in the mobile channel now offers more case-wide actions that can be performed by swiping on list items. For example, you can add a swipe action to attach an invoice to your expense work item. This enhancement increases usability and work efficiency as it allows for fast, instinctive mobile interactions.

For more information, see Designing a new mobile list page.

The Create Build button appears grayed out when configuring and building a mobile application

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you attempt to configure and build your Android or iOS mobile application from the Mobile tab, the Create build button might appear dimmed. This issue occurs if any of the access roles in the access group were cloned from the PegaRULES:SysAdm4 access role.

Refer to Troubleshooting Pega Mobile Client to learn how to fix this issue in your application.

Offline configuration limitation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When enabling the offline capability for a case type, do not select the Enable offline check box in Case Designer because it incorrectly sets the locking strategy. Instead, select the Enable offline mode check box on the Advanced tab of the Case Type form.

To open the Case Type form from Case Designer, click Open on the Actions menu.

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.

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.

Advance cases from a push notification screen

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now approve and reject Pega® Platform cases from your mobile device without opening a custom mobile app. Push notifications that you receive on a mobile device now display buttons that allow you to advance a case.

For more information, see Notifications.
