New Features and Enhancements
Work Manager Mobile App
High precision location tracking is now available and users can enable or disable it using the feature toggle. If disabled, the app will use regular precision. High precision allows user's current location to be detected within a few meters. This mode does affect battery usage.
When using the precision location setting, here is how the battery charge depleted:
- iPad Air 2 (MH2P2LL/A) (13.5.1) --> 12% battery reduction over 20 minutes of usage
- iPhone 11 Pro (14.4.2) --> 7% battery reduction over 20 minutes of usage
- Galaxy Tab S2 (SM-T813) (Android 7.0) --> 21% battery reduction over 20 minutes of usage
- DESKTOP-8GPF2OV (64-bit) (Windows 10) --> 48% battery reduction over 20 minutes of usage
For the convenience of users in the field, it is now possible to copy forward a day card to the next day on multi-day Work Orders that have Daycards attached. Users have a choice of copying a Daycard with all its information over to the next day of the Work Order. Some minimal information can be modified while copying over the data.
Reporting Forms now show users a save message when they enter data.
All Work Manager functionality is now supported on phones and tablets except install/remove/replace functionality for Signals Movement and Transfer which is currently only supported on tablets.
Structures Inspector Mobile App
A time-based automatic logout can now be configured so that when the app is inactive for over the configured amount of time, users are automatically logged out and will need to log back in.
The LRS Gateway sync process is now updated so that Test mode and Full mode always use the same start and end dates. This eliminates the possibility of unreviewed changes coming into the system.
The End Date, indicating the last edit date, can now be entered by the user. This date will usually be calculated as the time of the last edit + 1 second. The Start Date is automatically captured by the job. If the user only runs the job then the end date will default to the current date and time, as previously. In a future releases the job will be updated to automatically capture the last edit date from Roads and Highways as well. In order to avoid further missed edits, it is important to ensure that, on Roads & Highways, no edits are committed to DEFAULT for 24 hours before the scheduled time for the Test run. Agencies may want to choose to run the job on a weekend to allow for this edit hiatus.
For instructions on how to run the LRS Gateway Interface jobs, please refer to the LRS Gateway documentation.

The supplied CORS filter for Tomcat will not work on Tomcat version 8.5.32 and above. Customers need to review the use of the CORS filter and update web.xml as needed. Additional information can be found at https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/config/filter.html
As of Chrome 71, browser pop-ups may be blocked which will negatively affect system operations. To address this in Chrome go to Settings > Advanced > Content Settings > Pop ups and redirects and then add the URL for the application.
The new GIS Explorer like all web mapping applications requires datasets in the geographic coordinate system (EPSG:4326), so customer schemas with data stored in a different coordinate system would need to be transformed in order for map layers to be created from the dataset. See the section on re-projecting geometries in the Implementation Guide
Inserting a location or inventory item from a map is not functional when using Firefox as your web browser. To work around this limitation, use the other supported web browsers: IE 11, Chrome or Safari

The loading and display of maps and associated styles in IE 11 is not as performant as Chrome, Firefox and Safari
In the Roads & Highways interface, routes with curves are not handled properly by the ESRI FDGB API. A workaround is to have the agency densify the routes to turn the curves into line strings
The HTML5 based copy/paste functionality has limitations on the number of rows that can be copied to a browser's clipboard
IE 11 - 4000 rows
Edge - 4000 rows

When the same editable layer is added to GIS Explorer so there are more than one active, the features on the layer cannot be dragged for an edit
The undo/redo of edits retains the actions performed even the associated layer has been removed
When add a new editable layer to a map with in-progress edits, the undo and redo options are temporarily disabled. Performing an edit re-enables undo/redo and previous edits can be undone or redone
In Microsoft Edge, some admin units in the Admin Units drop-down on the inspection team's creation dialog, appear as actionable links
Setting some columns as fixed in a data window is not functional in IE 11
Setting of columns as fixed in a data window is not supported in right to left language displays, such as for Hebrew or Arabic, i.e. only the left most columns can be fixed
GIS Explorer does not display a basemap nor the basemap selection dialog, when using Microsoft Edge web browser. However, basemaps function as expected with IE 11, Chrome and Firefox web browsers
