Within the application some changes are applied on mobiles:

  • Left panel is visible when pusing the top left button
  • Right panel is visible when pushing the question mark (?) button
  • Instead of tabs, there is a button showing the number of tabs and allowing to navigate between the open tabs
  • The menu is accessible via a dedicated button on header
  • The context menu on fields is accessible pushing the label, instead of the previously required long press on the field
  • For Chrome in Android, it supports "Add to Home" screen
  • Use PdfJS for inline viewing of PDF ( report viewer, popup report viewer, zk report viewer and archive viewer ).
  • Enable html5 input type for number and url for better soft keyboard support
