An issue the HTTP plugin for Mobile Apps Only

We have been alerted to an issue with the iPad logging in online to Select certs. This affects the speed of all uploads and downloads to the mobile app only. The website, PC and MAC builds are not afftected.

We have identified a bug with the platform the software for the mobile apps is written on.

We are awaiting a fix for the bug. Whilst we await that fix we have coded a workaround that should help aleviate the issue somewhat.

The current version in the Apple Store is 2.3.11.
2.3.12 will be submitted for review this evening and available when Apple have reviewed it, hopefully by the end of the week.

18th Edition Updates:

The website, PC and Mac builds will be updated towards the end of this week to include the 18th Edition certificates.

The add certifcate list will show the 18th Edition certificates at the top of the list and the old Ammendment 1 certificates will be removed from the list.

You will still be able to see existing A1 certifcates but will no longer be able to create a new one. A3 and 18th Edition will be the only option for adding new certifcates.

Mobile builds for Android and Apple should be available from their stores early next week.

Emailing a certificate from the website:

Some users were reporting that they could not email a certificate from the website as you could not type in the client field. This appeared to be affecting all browser types.

Changes were made to the address field and you should now be able to type an email address again. If you cannot, you may need to clear your temporary internet files before you see the change.

Monday 19th February 2018:

An update to the clustered server settings:

Some users were reporting that they could not back up from any device. Some users also reported not being able to sync certificates with pages in excess of 50.

Changes were made on all the front end web servers to allow for the increased size of backups and data in larger test results.

Tuesday 9th January 2018:

An update to the Android version:

Some users were reporting that on Android 7 on some devices certain text fields were locked and they could not type into them.

This affected multiple certificate types and was rectified with the version that is currently available from the google play store. The apple version was not affected

How to upgrade your mobile app:

Before you start make sure all certificates are up to date and synced to the server.
Next login and perform a backup from the home screen and wait for the backup successful message.
Once you have synced and backed up your app you can then visit the app store and update to the lastest version.
Do Not delete the app first just update and your settings will be overwritten
If you delete the app first your database and data will be deleted too!
