Installing updates

This article explains what to do when you are prompted to update ActivityInfo. It also explains where you can find the version number of ActivityInfo currently in use.

As a user of ActivityInfo, you do not need to install the application or its updates. Updates are downloaded automatically to your browser and will become "active" when the application is reloaded. In practice this means that you are always using the latest version and there is no server downtime for maintenance or the installation of updates. Since we do not want to refresh the browser while you are working with the application, we will prompt you if a new version is ready to be used.

Follow the instructions below to accept a new version when you are prompted to do so.

When a new version of the application is available on our server, it will be automatically downloaded in the background of your browser. Once the new version is downloaded, a dialog will appear to ask if you would like to reload the application:

  1. You can select "Yes" to refresh your browser after which you will be using the latest version of ActivityInfo. This is the recommended option.
  2. If you are just in the middle of entering data into a form or making changes to the design of a database, you can select "No" to finish your work before updating. Once you are finished with your work, you can refresh your browser page (for example by using the F5 button) and the latest version of ActivityInfo will be loaded.
