iOS App Note Sorting and Undo Support: RMS 148

The Bipsync Research Management System is now on release 148 while the Bipsync Notes iOS app has been upgraded to version 1.33.0. The iOS release features a much-requested improvement to the note list, and elsewhere there are a number of other improvements and bug fixes.

Bipsync Notes iOS: Note Sorting

A common request among clients has been a way for them to control the ordering of notes in our iOS app’s note list. This is now possible in the latest release of the app. By tapping the sort button in the top menu bar, users can now select from several different sorting options:

  • Newest first
  • Oldest first
  • Recently updated first
The new sort menu in Bipsync Notes iOS

When searching for notes by text, the sort menu also includes a fourth option: “Most relevant first”. Users can therefore customise the order in which search results appear – either by strict text match, or by what Bipsync deemed the most relevant results.

Bipsync Notes iOS: Undo/Redo Support

Another key addition to our iOS Notes app can be found on the note editor toolbar: undo/redo buttons.

The app has always supported undo, but it’s been via iOS’ native undo feature which requires the user to shake the device, which is not very intuitive. By exposing undo via a dedicated button, and adding support for redo, we hope to give users more control over their content (and their typos!).

Other Fixes and Improvements

  • Bipsync’s AutoTagging service can now be queried via API.
  • The AutoTagging service supports company names that feature text with diacritic characters.
  • The names of archived backups can now be customised as per client requirements.
  • Fixed an issue which sometimes prevented fields from being edited by users with the appropriate permissions.
  • Fixed an issue which caused the web app search to not return the expected results when given a quoted query.
  • Fixed an issue which sometimes caused a “multiple people are editing this note” notification to incorrectly appear.

As usual, please get in touch with any questions about this release, or if you have any feedback or suggestions about the Bipsync platform.
