Push notification delivery to multiple devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Push notifications sent from the Pega 7 Platform are now delivered to all devices on which a user is logged in to your custom mobile app, regardless of the device platform. You can either send push notifications from the Push Console to all users who have your application installed on their devices, or configure your application to send push notifications to indicate that an action might be required, a status update is available, or a case was approved.

Support for subflows and decision flow results in offline mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Subflows in offline-enabled mobile apps are now supported to perform additional tasks outside of the main flow. The subflow can run only on the current work item, with the subflow displaying in the main flow, in a nested subflow, or located next to an assignment. No likelihood routing is supported for subflows. It is also possible to set a flow result by using the pega.process.flow.setFlowEndStatus() JavaScript method to override the status set by a property in the subflow's end shape. The process engine also takes into account the likelihood setting if the flow result is conflicting or absent, provided the flow result is not in a subflow.

For more information, see Flow processing in offline mode.

Support for error handling API in offline mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

During the processing of cases in offline-enabled mobile apps, you can use several JavaScript API methods to perform error handling. You can now determine whether an error condition results from the post-processing of a flow or a subflow. You can also set, clear, or obtain the number of error messages on a property or a page while working in offline mode, similar to when you are running a Pega 7 Platform desktop application. When you run a custom mobile app in offline mode, you can submit a form, but you cannot move the flow forward until all the errors on a page and in the page's properties are resolved.

For more information, see Error handling in offline mode and Error handling API in offline mode.

Application administrators can send push notifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

From the Push Console application, administrators can send push notifications to custom mobile app users. Notifications sent from the Push Console can contain application-wide messages, for example, when an update is available for manual download.

For more information, see Push Console landing page.

Transition effects for actions in custom mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Custom mobile apps that are developed on the Pega 7 Platform can include built-in transition effects that animate your forward or backward movement in cases that use flows. This feature adds to the look-and-feel experience of the custom mobile app.

You can also manually add a transition effect to actions that do not support built-in effects by using the Run Script action and calling the pega.desktop.setNativeTransition() JavaScript method.

For more information, see Transition effects on actions.

Goal and deadline push notifications in mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

For mobile apps, you can enable push notifications to be sent to an assignee's or a manager's mobile device when a defined goal or deadline interval related to a service-level agreement expires. These notifications help caseworkers resolve cases on time.

For more information, see Requirements for goal and deadline push notifications.

New notifications for case types

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now enable email and push notifications for a case type to communicate an event, such as an expired service-level agreement, to users in your application. By calling attention to assignments in a case that require action, you can help users to resolve cases faster.

Assignments in upgraded flows automatically inherit the notification policy that is defined by the case type unless you provide a custom notification activity or explicitly disable notifications in the Assignment shape.

For more information, see: Case notifications.

Debugging data synchronization issues with offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

If an offline-enabled mobile application that originates from the Pega 7 Platform fails to synchronize data after reconnecting to the server, the Pega 7 Platform generates a PEGA0066 alert. The alert includes detailed information about the failure, such as the activity that preceded the event, entries collected from the native application, and entries from the JavaScript part of the Pega 7 Platform application. The administrator can use the alert and device logs to facilitate error analysis and debugging without having to access the failing device.

For more information, see Understanding the PEGA0066 alert - Mobile App Data-Sync Failure.

Building custom mobile apps that require a password to start

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

To provide extra protection of local data, you can now require user passwords for custom mobile apps. Requiring a password can increase the app's initiation time, but additional protection might be needed for applications that store sensitive information. In Designer Studio, on the Mobile tab, select Enforce user password on start to require user passwords.

For more information, see Configuring password enforcement.

Building custom mobile apps based on an explicit version of Hybrid Container

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now lock the version of Hybrid Container on which your custom mobile app is built in Designer Studio. Locking the version helps avoid compatibility issues with the devices that are used in your organization. To lock the version of Hybrid Container, you must set the version in a .pyHCBuildVersion declare expression for a specific application.

For more information, see Building custom mobile apps based on a selected version of Hybrid Container.
