Dev Diary 12: Projects in the field
Very busy, few words, much data
A very brief dev update as we work through issues found by taking FAIMS 3 into the field.
Our devs are hard at work, updating our server code for role management, making persistent fields (so that field values entered in one form instance persist through the next record), and having branching logic/conditional visibility ready for QA in the coming week.
We are also dealing with the natural consequences of multiple teams taking FAIMS3 to the field for the first time, which… goes some way towards explaining the shortness and delay of this post.
We now have four total notebooks which have been used to collect genuine (not test) records!
Where did August go?
If anyone finds a missing August, and if they could return it to me, that’d be great.
