Usernote having functionality problems

Sven Arild shared this problem 7 years ago
Solved

We are evaluating your software, and its been a pleasure until the second project was sent over to usernote.


The entire prototype works well locally, but from usernote most of it does not functional at all. Links dont work, functionality does not happen and on some of them unexpected bugs appear (i.e. it does not do as expected).


Now, the prototype has some dynamic functionality but not really anything advanced, so this is a very disappointing and surprising turn of events.


Do you guys have any current timeline for when the usernote system will be working properly?


Please let me know.


Note, the prototype with issues is this one:

The move action has a bug and it's unable to move 'groups'. As a workaround you can ungroup that group and group it inside a dynamic panel. Then move the panel instead.

Just FYI, this is a public forum, be careful when you share a prototype with the community.

Thanks for the information Victor.


Why have you guys not compiled a list/document over what is not working inside usernote? That would be quite helpful to know what you can and can not do.


Since redoing the system to move dynamic panel instead of groups now, would mean having to go over every rule that affect it and update it from the group to the panel. If we had known this from the start there would not have been any extra work.


It also looks like your global variable system does not work as expected.


On a side note, are there any plans for a free viewer using the JIM engine? Basically a free version of JIM software that can only be used to view already created prototypes. Basically allowing you to tell the client to download and install it, before just sending them the prototype file to review. On the flip side I would assume this would be an easier task to archive than to recode everything into the usernote system.


Please let me know.


Thanks

The thing about having a list of already know bugs in both Prototyper and Usernote is a good idea. We will add that list every time we launch a new update.


May I ask you what are the problems with the variables?


About the free viewer we are already thinking about it and there will be some news about this in the next months.

A free viewer would be a very good addition, to be honest for us that would be a better selling point than the usernote system.


For the global variables, they work in some cases. The issue is mainly regarding when you use one variable across multiple pages, and then reset it according to what you want to do on "page load". In some cases it seems that the reset of the variable fails, so you are stuck in the same loop, each time you enter the page. (Note, Im talking inside the usernote system, it works inside JIM)

Could you send an example of that to jim dot support at justinmind dot com please?
