In the new version of CiviMobile, the Cases Dashboard includes functionality to make it easier to track a series of related tasks. To do this, the User must go to the bottom menu and select the More → Cases Dashboard screen tab. This feature also facilitates access to the calendar of events: the User can view news and petitions as well as donate. The Dashboards block (Contributions, Memberships, and Cases menu accordingly) is available only for admin. A summary of the case involvement block allows adding a new app to track Users' involvement and identify people's roles and contacts.
Following successful product launch, one can lean back and relax their efforts or keep up the pace, every time setting higher-level goals. Driven by a goal-oriented mindset, we went for new challenges and subjected all CiviMobile modules to close revision and optimization.
This is the first major, most requested and most anticipated release of CiviMobile app for all organizations that run CiviCRM on a Drupal 8 site. You asked for Drupal 8 compatible CiviMobile app — and we did it! CiviMobile 5.4 now supports Drupal 8 version of CiviCRM offering convenient access to CRM data and its management on the go.
The more actively CiviMobile integrates into the daily life of nonprofit CiviCRM-powered organizations, the more advanced CiviMobile functionality becomes with every new release.
The latest version of CiviMobile 5.0 has pointed out a totally new direction for app development by introducing CiviMobile Public Area. For nonprofits it opened one more interaction channel with new opportunities to raise the organization profile among unregistered users, engage members, fundraisers, volunteers, supporters, enthusiasts etc.
Opt in or out? Just when you thought that sending a push message is as easy as it gets, CiviMobile 5.0 rolls out featuring the looked-for Push Notification functionality.
Just when we thought that CiviMobile project can move only forward, it dawned on us that in fact the road takes it far and wide in every direction, to every user, fundraiser, volunteer, supporter, enthusiast and every person who cares. This observation is now taking form in CiviMobile 5.0 release. Starting with version 5.0 CiviMobile opens up for a wide audience of unregistered users.
The day CiviMobile team rolled out its international CiviMobile localization project is long gone. The project is running full blast, gathering pace with every new release of CiviMobile and with every new account of its further international outreach.
Reaching new users and higher goals
CiviCRM role-based security solution gets a fundamental boost as Agiliway releases an extension to streamline permission management within multi-unit hierarchically structured nonprofit organizations.
Who will benefit?
Right on cue CiviMobile app scales up to offer nonprofit organization’s constituents the best experience of CiviCRM functionality on their smartphones. From the outset CiviMobile offered its users fast and responsive performance of a native mobile app. Following few releases, it has accumulated wide user capabilities for CRM data management, which continue to expand.
What Is New
As the CiviMobile version numbers continue to increment, the user experience of the mobile application improves with exponential growth. Members of NGOs and nonprofits are no longer office bound by a desktop CiviCRM application. What they have instead is a core CiviCRM functionality at their fingertips every time and everywhere. Our new release of CiviMobile 4.1 further refines the app introducing custom field functionality, among other updates.
What Is New
What’s the Purpose?
CiviCRM has been used within NGO’s and non-profits for organizing its internal processes and policies. Sometimes it might be difficult to access CiviCRM and use all its benefits. Thus, Agiliway has released the native mobile application known as CiviMobile for more convenient use. It integrates the databases within CiviCRM giving opportunity to organize a working day on the go.
Agiliway continues actively working on CiviMobile - a mobile app that allows leveraging all the benefits of CiviCRM anywhere and anytime. The major change introduced in the second release was the ability to update CiviCRM data via mobile app. Current third release of CiviMobile has a set of new important changes complementing the mobile application with additional value.
Anyone who has tried to login to their CiviCRM database via their phone knows the feeling: utter helplessness. You would even be forgiven for thinking CiviCRM is actively hostile to the small screen.
This initial experience of the un-initiated CiviCRM user on the phone will probably remain until the eventual adoption of the Bootstrap framework (a CSS framework with built-in mobile/responsive elements).
As we are living in an increasingly mobile-focused world, how can CiviCRM can be integrated with mobile and leverage features native to mobile? During the recent CiviCRM Sprint in Colorado, a group of us got together to discuss what currently exists, what's in the works and new features that would be helpful to include in the future.
De Goede Woning (our biggest and oldest CiviCRM client) have expressed lots of interest in CiviMobile. For them the main focus is on Activities and Cases. It is really important for the workers to be able to access and maintain data whilst on the road visiting and helping customers and stakeholders. So here is my first draft of what is required functionally, any thoughts and comments much appreciated!! We will probably start developing this stuff in October.
It's been quite a while since my last CiviMobile update but that's not to say that I haven't been busy :)
While we were working hard on a number of applications for free and open source market one of the application which was released by us was the CiviSync Mobile app for Android. You can download it from Google Play on your phone or here.
Although the weather has not been that great during the sprint we have not let that get in the way of our CiviMobile testing. As you'll see, the sprinters have been using CiviMobile at every opportunity possible. The picture below shows us leaving for the Goede De Woning offices on our 6-person rickshaw, tapping away at our phone screens.
The CiviMobile web app is now underway and being developed with the jQuery Mobile framework (HTML 5).
The app is Based on the prototype that Xavier and Kyle created, and is beginning to take shape, the functionality in place at the moment includes contact/activity search, add contact and view list of events. It’s intended to be used by an organisation’s staff, as a tool for them to use on the move.
As part of my final year studying Computer Science at uni I'm required to take on a 400 hour project. I've been wanting to create a mobile app for a while now and given that CiviCRM is lacking such a feature I thought it would be a good idea to embark on developing one. Hopefully the end result will be good enough to incorporate into core!
