What's New in AsdeqDocs 5.1

Touch ID / Fingerprint Login Support

Being able log in to AsdeqDocs for iOS and Android using your fingerprint is a long standing feature-request. This release enables fingerprint login on AsdeqDocs and AsdeqForms for iOS, and AsdeqDocs for Android.

Once an administrator has enabled the fingerprint policy, you will be asked if you want to use your fingerprint after you have successfully logged in with your username and password. You can turn off the feature at any time in settings.

Fingerprint login is enabled by a new setting in the Security Policy:

Once you have logged into the AsdeqDocs you will be prompted if you want to use Touch ID for logging in:

The next time you log in you can use Touch ID instead of your username/password:


Other Improvements

  • AsdeqDocs for Android now supports Android 4.4 and above. Older versions of Android can still use version 4.2.
  • AsdeqDocs for Android can be used on devices which do not have the GPS feature enabled, such as the Soultec Flek.
  • The X-Frame-Options and other security related headers have been added to the server.
  • AsdeqDocs for MobileIron has been updated to use the latest MobileIron SDK.
  • Many bug fixes and performance improvements.

What's New in AsdeqForms 5.1

AsdeqForms for iPhone

AsdeqForms is expanding on to new platforms beyond iPad, and the first is iPhone. We've optimised the form engine to display most forms as-is on the smaller screen.

The app uses the drill down user interface found in AsdeqDocs for iPhone, and should be instantly familiar and usable for end users.


Log into the iPhone version using the same

username and password


Navigation is by a list drill down.

Within a form, changing pages is via a

pop-over menu.

Existing forms should work without

modification on the iPhone.

Actions are displayed via an action sheet popup.

The settings screen is available from the

settings menu.

In lanscape on an iPhone Plus the split view is available, as on an iPad.



Risk Matrix Control

The form engine now includes a new control, for specifying risk levels graphically.

Every risk matrix is slightly different, so we've included a lot of customisations, including the titles of the X and Y axes, how many rows and columns, and the way the colors are calculated.

For instance the screenshot below is of a 3x3 matrix using multiply mode, with the all axis labels re-titled:

Other Improvements

  • Advanced search now supports customisation of AND/OR and term boosting
  • Form script can create linked, child forms
  • Form script can specify the sort order that forms will be displayed in.
  • PDF exports can display audit information such as when the form was submitted, and by whom.
  • Many bug fixes and performance improvements.
