New In This Release
Limit the Number of SmartPins on the Desktop Map
We introduced a new control for the Nrby Desktop to limit the number of SmartPins that are retrieved and displayed on the portal map.
Much like the setting to control the drawing of jurisdiction lines, the maximum number of SmartPins to display is stored on the local browser. So going to a new browser may result in a different setting. Below you can see the various different choices for the number of SmartPins to display.
Below for example, the Max SmartPins is set to 100. You can see that there are 100 pins on the map (87 + 12 + 1). Above the cards on the left hand side (below the Nrby logo), you can see that the total number of SmartPin is actually 283.
Desktop users are expected to zoom in to the area they are concerned with to see the SmartPins
they wish to see.
Synchronizing Configuration Changes to Mobile Devices
Previously in the desktop, when a configuration change was made, the user was offered the option to Cancel the change, Save the change, or Save and Push the change to mobile devices. Some users were pushing every configuration to all of the mobile devices when really the configuration changes need to be pushed only after the last change has been made. So to alleviate the temptation to Save and Push, we moved that functionality off of the Save dialog.
Now, to synchronize configuration changes to the mobile devices, there is a new button, Sync Configuration Changes, on the Navigation Dropdown menu in the upper right hand corner, pictured below.
When that button is pressed, the desktop user sees this dialog.
The user must type in ‘sync’ to the text box to enable the Sync Configuration Changes button in the dialog box.
Once the ‘Sync Configuration Changes’ button has been pressed, a message will briefly appear at the top of the desktop screen notifying the user that mobile devices are being synchronized.
Concurrent Change Notification
If you are viewing the details of a SmartPin or editing a SmartPin and a different user also edits the same SmartPin, you will be notified of that change with the dialog below.
