The Home Screen

After logging in to the app, mobile users will land on the new Home screen. Forms, Inbox, Sent/Outbox and Drafts  can be accessed directly from here. 

Sent & Outgoing Forms

The Outbox and Sent listings have been combined.  If users are working offline, an "Outgoing" header will appear in the Sent screen to hold all forms that are waiting to be sent.  If the Sent screen is disabled, it will be replaced on the home screen by an Outbox.  

To return to the home screen from any of the listing screens, use the side navigation menu and select Home.

 

Reconcile & Settings

The "refresh button" on the top right of the screen is used to reconcile.  The ProntoForms App Settings are accessed by tapping the gear icon at the top right of the home screen.

Custom Branding

Custom branding will be displayed at the top of the home page at a larger size in the updated app.  

If you are using existing custom branding at 192x192px, your logo may appear pixelated. You may upload a new, larger logo in the web portal.

The ideal size for the banner logo uploaded to the web portal is 1200px by 400px.
