Module Notes

Mobile Logbook

The mobile logbook is not up-to-date with the current ME release. You cannot currently log more than one task/objective at a time. You cannot log time. Please utilize the aforementioned setting to turn off the mobile logbook if this will not work for your current implementation.

Mobile Assessment & Evaluation

As noted in the user documentation, the mobile app currently supports the following functionalities:
    In a CBME enabled org
      As a faculty or learner, complete assessments & evaluations that were already delivered
      As a faculty or learner in a CBME (RCPSC) enabled course/program, trigger new EPA assessments on demand
      View learning events calendars
      View notices
      As a learner in a logbook enabled course/program, log new entries and view/edit previous entries
    In a non-CBME enabled org
      As a faculty or learner, complete assessments & evaluations that were already delivered
      View learning events calendars
      View notices
      As a learner in a logbook enabled course/program, log new entries and view/edit previous entries
The assessment & evaluation module on mobile does not currently support:
    Learner-driven on-demand workflows other than EPA assessments (e.g., triggering a faculty evaluation)
    The ability for administrators to trigger tasks from the mobile app
    The ability to delegate tasks
    The ability to forward tasks
    The ability to review completed assessments

Authentication

As of release 3.4.0, the mobile app supports different authentication flows depending on what your server is set up to support:
    SSO only
    dual SSO and local login/LDAP options
    local login/LDAP only (default)
The mobile app does not currently support the ability to stay logged in. The auth token is tied to PHP sessions and the ACL uses session variables, so we are unable to let users remain logged in without changing this on the web as well. Some users may be able to leverage password managers to retain login information.
The current mobile release does not support offline mode.
