We’ve overhauled the Youreka mobile UI to be simpler and easier to use. A new onboarding modal will introduce users to the changes the next time the app is started. It’s not just the design. We’ve also improved the back end to make saving faster and more efficient. Changing pages now saves in the background, so it doesn’t slow down the form completion process.
Mobile Offline Mode
You can now toggle offline mode on/off directly in the Youreka mobile app. This is helpful for completing forms in areas with a spotty/weak internet connection. Be sure to toggle offline mode back on so that forms will sync to Salesforce when a reliable connection is available. Users will be prompted to return to online mode after 4 hours offline.
Space-Saving Linked Section Card Layout
A new display option is available for linked sections. You can now select to only show a few questions in the collapsed view. This helps save space on forms with lots of linked sections. Selecting a linked section to edit will expand to show all available questions. You can also select a background color and icon to help linked sections stand out.
Display Questions based on Number Answers
In addition to conditionally showing questions based on picklist values, you can now display them conditionally based on an answer to a number, percent, or currency question. Task sections can also be displayed conditionally based on a number question.
Note: Null/empty answer values will be treated as 0 for dependency logic
New Radio button list design
There is a new layout option available for radio button list questions. You can display them horizontally or vertically, select a custom icon, and even select an icon color. This new layout will be the default for new yes/no questions. The existing vertical layout is still available and may be the only option available depending on the number of characters in question value options. Radio button selections can now be unselected after being selected. Existing radio button list and yes/no questions will continue to use the old layout. This layout is not yet available for field link questions.
Field link lookup questions can now be filtered based on field values. For example, if you have a contact with an account lookup, you can use the filter to only allow accounts of a specific account type to be selected.
We’ve expanded our support of Salesforce dependent picklists beyond State/Country to nearly all dependent picklists.
NOTE: Dependent picklists for record types are not fully supported. All possible options for all record types will be displayed. Choosing an option that is not allowed for the governing record will give an error, and the value will not be saved to the governing record.
