Navigate to Hospital

After going en-route to the hospital, Tablet Command will prompt the user to navigate to that hospital.  This requires the interface to support this functionality.  Contact for additional information. 


The Units view now supports multi-select allowing a user to select multiple units at once to apply an action or move to a group/division.

ADDED APPLY BUTTON to Templates / Checklists MENU

When adding a template or a checklist, added an Apply button in order to apply the chosen template and/or checklist.


Simplified Create Incident view

The manual created incident view has been simplified to quickly create an incident.  Adding units, selecting a map, and applying a template or checklist, and navigation are now all handled from the incident detail screens after creating the incident.


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 March 20th.
