Added a new mobile phone layout to GXM apps. This layout puts the Taskbar along the bottom and ensures that panels expand upwards, making better use of the screen real estate on smaller devices. Apps detect the device that a user is running and show the appropriate layout, so no extra configuration is needed to take advantage of this improvement. Older version apps will need to be updated before to use the new layout.
A feature that allows an administrator to create a special URL which will launch a GXM app and, optionally, trigger a workflow – passing in specific parameters if necessary. With this improvement, you can launch GXM from other GIS apps that your organization relies on.
A new command that allows other applications to be launched directly from within GXM. URLs can be configured to accept arguments – including information about a specific, selected, feature.
Clicking or tapping on the ‘pin’ icon in a Search Result will cause the feature to ‘pulse’ on the map, making it easier to find.
Geocortex Mobile Designer
Portal Item interface has been added to Designer to provide a more visual search-and-browse experience for Esri portal content. For example, when configuring your map component, you are no longer required to paste in a URL or an ID, instead you can search and browse for the item, verify it via its thumbnail, and select it directly.
Events | Map Initialized: has been added under Map that allows a command or a workflow to be run when the web map is loaded or reloaded. This is configured on the Map in Designer in a section called Events.
Info side panel: has been added to Mobile Designer. This panel offers direct access to view and edit the Title and Description of the current app. When you change the name of the Title or description, it also changes the name of the Esri Portal Item. The URL to the Development stage of the current app in your Esri Portal is also available to copy. A link provides direct access to the Esri Portal item in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.
