Castle (Alpha) is now Live!
AHH!!! Are you excited?! We are! We have been pushing to make this happen for you guys and are so happy it's finally here! Now, reigning in the excitement, there is one thing we need to make clear before we get to release notes:
Alpha means not complete. Not complete means not guaranteed to be functional at all times and not guaranteed to be useful to your business right now. As such:
This release is not recommended for commercial use and we cannot be held liable for such use or loss of business through such use.
That said, enjoy reading through the alpha release notes below!
Alpha Release Notes
High Level Achievements / Alterations
Happy Path Complete!
This means a user can now register an account, login, create an inspection, complete an inspection, and email that inspection out to a client or realtor.
Login, Main, Templates, Themes, History, & Settings Pages & UI Implemented
The primary pages of the app have been implemented.
New Inspection & Inspection Pages & UI Implemented
The pages required to perform an inspection have been implemented.
Multiple Workflows Implemented
Click the three dots ":" in the top right corner of the app, while in an inspection, to switch workflows.
One-Question Flow Implemented
You can go through your questions one at a time and address each question in the order your template is laid out.
Rapid-Photo Mode Implemented
Take a Photo, then decide where it goes!
You can now successfully create a new template!
Template Editting & Saving
You can now successfully Edit & Save your Template!
Default Template Included
This version includes a default template (courtesy of Rod Beacham) which will be replaced with a more standardized ASHI Template in future releases. But for now we didn't want to leave you high and dry without an example of what it should look like.
Presently there's no easy way for you to create your own theme. As such the button to create a new theme doesn't actually do so.
Default Theme Included
This version includes our "Modern" default theme.
- Auto Comments Database Implemented
This feature is not fully complete. However, we have created a place (on the Settings Page in the App) for you to begin inputting your auto comments yourself if you would like to. These will be stored on our server and tied to your account for future use.
Implemented an Auto-Save feature which will save an inspection every screen navigation.
This feature is in its infancy and we are constantly improving it. Eventually it will be an optional Premium Feature but for the time being we are simply backing up everything just to make sure it's all working right.
This feature was working... but then we made a lot of changes and now it's not. For the time being, know that exporting your reports is not actually exporting any of the data from the app (even when it looks like it successfully exports a .castle file). We will announce when this is functional again.
