New features in version 2.10

The release of version 2.10 introduces a number of new features to ActivityInfo. Here's a full list of these new features.

1. New fields to add images and attachments to forms

New fields to add images and attachments to forms

An intermediate release of ActivityInfo 2.9 saw the introduction of two new fields in the new form design mode:

  1. an image field to store images in forms
  2. an attachments field to store one or more attachments such as PDF documents in forms

These two fields complement the barcode field which was introduced with the 2.9 release.

2. Switching the language of the user interface

Switching the language of the user interface

It is now possible to switch the current language of the interface on-the-fly. You will find the new language selector at the top right of the application, next to the help link and the settings icon. Read the documentation on Changing the language of the application to learn more.

3. Setting a preferred language

Setting a preferred language

Besides switching the language of the application on a per-session basis, you can now also set your preferred language in your profile settings. This will set your preferred language as the default every time you log into ActivityInfo. It will also set the default language of the email notifications.

Read the documentation on how to Set your preferred language for more information.

4. New translations: Arabic, Spanish and Dutch

Whereas we used to have only two languages, we have now added Arabic, Spanish and Dutch translations which cover almost all parts of the application.

We have also made it much easier to contribute to the translation of ActivityInfo so get in touch with us if you would like to add other languages to the list of translations.

5. Print individual forms

It is now possible to print individual forms and their data or to save them as a PDF document on your computer. This makes it possible to share individual forms in hardcopy or by email.
