    Upgrade Instructions

    Important Note for Upgrade to 3.2.0: Due to the changes required to support OpenID Connect Authentication, any pending edits to tasks may be lost when updating.  To avoid this issue, please make sure your users sync their task edits prior to updating the application (i.e. there are no blue arrows next to any of their tasks).

    ArcFM Mobile 3.0.0 for iPad Release - March 30, 2016

    What's New

    • Users can select from multiple pre-generated "offline packages" to quickly download only the data they need.
    • Users can select a background from a list of both offline or online base maps.  Previously only one or the other was available.
    • Users only have to select the data display they want to see; for example, electric distribution. The app automatically displays all available operational data based on their connectivity and previously downloaded data.


    Known Issues

    • iPad 2 and iPad 3 users might experience slower performance.
    • The map re-zooms to the selected operational map after checking for new maps.
    • Duplicate layers and symbols are displayed when both offline and online data are in the map.
    • Reference scale is not supported in offline data, so symbols may appear small when tightly zoomed in.
    • Beginning with version 3.2.0, if you attempt to log into ArcFM Mobile as a user that does not have sufficient permissions to use the application, you will need to restart the application before attempting to log in as a different user.
