Feature Details


Incident View Redesign

Resources, Checklists and Tasks have been moved to the Settings menu (gear icon) and the icons for Map and Unit Status have been changed to text and moved to the left sidebar.  The text size for the incident list can also be adjusted to match the device wide settings or app specific text size settings using the iOS control center.


Settings Menu Redesign

Since we moved Resources, Checklists and Tasks have been moved to the Settings Menu we redesigned and re-order the settings menu to feature the most used items.


Status Menu Redesign

The status menu has received a full redesign to be easier to use. It also remembers the last two choices on complex statuses for things like hospitals, out of service, and number of patients.


Vehicle Swap Redesign

The vehicle swap menu is now always available with a notice that both units must be in an Off Duty status with a note that references the specific status code required in each account.  You can also search for the unit that you want to swap into from the list of other units that are Off Duty and available for vehicle swap.  Again, both the unit the user is currently assigned to and the unit that the user wants to swap into must be in a normalized Off Duty status.

Map View - Group Tiles

Re-formatted Group Tiles with unit and personnel count. When you tap on the tile it brings up the tray and gives you access to all the units assigned to the group/division.


Map View - Map Search

You can now search the map on the incident map view using ESRI and Apple tools.  The ESRI search is also compatible with Mobile Map Packages (MMPK) which have locators built in.  Fully offline you can search for addresses and points of interest if a locator file is included in the MMPK.  You can also search by latitude, longitude.  If you are managing the incident you can convert the pin to an incident hazard point or pin.

Add Colored Pin to Incident

Incident managers can now add colored pins to the map and add any desired notes.  You can also convert a point location from map search into a pin or a hazard icon.



This is a phased release over the next 15 days.  You can also update Tablet Command manually from the App Store to enjoy the new features after November 30th.  We again strongly encourage you to update all devices in your organization to 3.4 so users are not confused in any way by the changes to the user interface.
