Release Notes: Customizable PDF Date Format, New Zoom Levels for GPS Maps, Remember/Recall and More

By Joe Baldwin on July 11, 2012

We have added a few new features to both the Website and our Mobile Clients that I’m sure you will enjoy. We have also been hard at work creating our new Dispatch feature (Woo Hoo!) that will be available in the coming months so keep an eye out for that launch!

Web Functionality:

We have now added the ability for you to add Multi Line Text fields to the body of your emailed PDF. Click here to learn how.

There are now 7(!) options to choose from for the zoom level for the GPS Google Map on the GoCanvas generated PDF. Click here to check it out.

Many of our international users have asked for it and here it is…. You can now change the date format in the header of your GoCanvas generated PDF! Click here to learn more.

Mobile Functionality:

Submission Preview

We have now updated our Android and WinMo clients (iOS and Desktop were previously released) to offer Submission Preview. So, now you can review all data entered before completing your submission. To enable the Preview feature on your device click the menu button (or options) and select “Settings”, you will see the option for Submission Preview (which is disabled by default). Change to Enabled and click the save button. Now the next time you complete a submission you will see the preview of all data entered before you come to the email recipient screen.

Auto-Complete for Value Lists (Drop Downs)

We have now updated our Android client (iOS and Desktop were previously released) to offer you the ability to just start typing when you have a Value List with 15 or more values and the potential matches will appear as options for you to choose. When clicking on the Value List you will now see a search field where you can start typing in the value you want and options will appear rather than scrolling through everything in your list.

Remember / Recall

Ever wanted to recall what you had previously entered into a submission? Or, have you needed to fill out multiple submissions where certain data stays the same for all? Well now you have the ability to use our newest mobile feature called “Remember / Recall”! Click here to learn more.

*Note: the new version for Android will not be available in the Google Play store for a few weeks but, if you would like to go ahead and download the newest version please do so at
