Our Product Development team has been hard at work for the past few months, adding functionality for GIS professionals to work more intuitively with data in tables (after all, your data is the most important aspect of your apps), and brings in editing functionality that has typically been reserved for desktop GIS tools.
One of these features is a redesigned results table that dramatically improves performance, introduces infinite scrolling for hundreds (or even thousands) of records, and allows you to perform actions on specific results or sets of results. Geocortex Essentials users also benefit from advanced editing tools that allow you to cut and union geometries while maintaining attribute integrity.
Geocortex Essentials 4.9 (alongside Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.10 and Geocortex Mobile Framework 2.3.1) are now available for download. You can learn more about the latest releases on the product release page, or download the new versions in the Geocortex Support Center.
Additional support for Geocortex Workflow 5
We’ve continued to add support for Geocortex Workflow 5 to deploy offline workflows, dynamic forms, and new activities in Geocortex Essentials applications.
Geocortex Workflow 5 is our newest product that allows you to extend Geocortex and Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS ® applications by turning complex business processes into simple, guided end-user interactions. Instead of writing thousands of lines of code to meet custom requirements, choose from more than 150 pre-built activities that chain together to automate almost any task.
Building upon Geocortex Essentials’ popular workflow capabilities, Geocortex Workflow 5 is also offered as a standalone product and enables you to build workflows right in your browser.
Take Geocortex Workflow for a spin in the Discovery Center, complete with videos, tutorials, and sample apps.
Take workflows into the field
Geocortex Workflow 5 provides the ability to take workflows offline to support field operations. You can download workflows and run them in your mobile viewers, keeping field workers productive… even in areas with no network connectivity.
For example, a municipal field engineer may need to perform fire hydrant inspections throughout a rural neighborhood. With Geocortex Workflow 5, the inspection application and corresponding workflow can be downloaded right to the worker’s tablet at the beginning of the day, and the assigned inspections can be completed without any network connection.
When the day is done and the tablet has returned to network connectivity, the field worker can sync the inspection data back to the database. This ensures that the field worker can continue to complete inspection, regardless of where they are, and that the data is readily available to the people in the office that need it.
