    Hey Folks. We have been making great progress on the Settings Screen Interface. Here is a sneak peek at what is in the works and coming soon.

    Hi Jon and Vinod,

    This new settings screen will not be removing the username from the settings screen it will just not allow you to change your username and password directly from the settings screen. The settings screen will be getting a revamped User Interface with more logical groupings and some consolidated options. But I this is a great addition to the settings screen to have Profile ID, Profile Name and Server Name listed. I see this could help Company admins as well as troubleshooting when submitting requests to our support team. Below is a mockup we have put together of what the new settings screen style would look like. I have also added when you select the info icon it shows the Server and Profile Details.

    Ben, sometimes I use the settings page to check which user I'm logged in with. Same to see which environment I'm logged in to. If this is removed how will we be able to check without logging out?

    I agree with Jon. It would be nice to see user details with user&profile name that would be super useful for company admins. This could be just read only details added to the settings page and we could still have a simple logout button without ability to change password.

     I like the idea of being able to quickly log into a different profile and know which profile I am currently using as a developer.

    I had a though though. What if  we have 20 mobile users and we have a client that wants a separate profile and admin access to their data. We then need to create 20 additional users/login so our 20 mobile user can switch to that profile when collecting data. If I understand this correctly it means we would have 40 unique users and might have to purchase a larger number of licenses?

    Glad to hear this will be helpful having this information more accessible should make things easier.

    In regards to the users wanting to work across a profile I would recommend that you utilize Form Sharing so they do not have to switch between profiles and/or purchase more users. https://iformbuilder.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201698500-How-do-I-share-forms-between-my-profiles-

    Thanks,

    That makes sense but unless they are logged into the other profile the data they collect does not share, right?

    Yes that is correct form sharing is just sharing the structure. Data is stored in the profile in which the user exists which is why shared forms will not solve this particular challenge.

    Hmm, seems like an opportunity for development there? If the data shared across profiles then we could have multiple profiles collecting data and have it all stored in one database. That might allow us to create many new users from other companies performing the same inspections over a large regional or national area. This would standardize the inspection process for the client while simplifying the API set up because they only need to access one database for assignment and post inspection results.

    Yes there certainly could be. With shared forms we set out to solve the problem of having a standard form controlled by a single profile and the goal was not to standardize data storage in a central location. Certainly something to consider as we move forward!
