Tech Note Update: When using SQL Server with iQagent as a backend database, please use the latest SQL Server Driver (SQLSRV32.dll) for the DSN, as the other SQL Server drivers (SQL Server ODBC, SQL Server Native Client) have known conflicts with ODBC and POCO libraries. If your current DSN is not referencing SQLSRV32.dll, please update your DSN. We will be issuing a tech update on this.

iQagent Enterprise is comprised of the following components:

  • iQagent Installer (v3.0.4.9), installs the below components on Windows 10, Server 2012 R2 or 2016 Server OS systems.
  • iQagent Configuration Tool (v3.0.1 Build 734), used to create Points Of Interest (POIs), Forms, Work Instructions and AR Procedures.
  • iQagent Server (v9.3.1 Build 99), an http/s Data Broker that fulfills requests between the configuration database and iQagent Client Apps.
  • iQagent License Manager (v1.0.0), a service that allows you to register device licenses for us so we can continue to live indoors and support our families.

iQagent Client Apps are available for your mobile and wearable devices:

What’s New:

iQagent Installer:

  • You can now choose your configuration tool installation path. Please note that if you are updating an existing iQagent installation, you are strongly advised to keep the same installation path and previous installations; the installer will set the installation path to default (c:\inetpub\iQagentWeb) and so just choose ‘next’. Choosing a different installation path from the previous installation will cause link issue to previous form submissions and uploaded files. 

iQagent Enterprise:

  • We have continued to update the iQagent Enterprise UI to a more cleaner and consistent approach.
  • You can now export form submissions for a given form as a .csv file
  • iQagent Configuration tool now has custom error pages.
  • Form Import dialog now includes a progress indicator.
  • Form Designer now contains new Composite Controls which combine a label, image or video and an input control to allow all to be viewed together on devices with smaller screens.
  • When browsing for POIs to embed in a form, POIs with no data points are now grayed out and cannot be selected.
  • When selecting a form field for pre-population on an info link, only unused fields will be shown.
  • OPCUA servers now contain a test button.

iQagent for iPad:

  • Changed screen recording over to the new native IOS Screen recording functionality. ‘Record’ button now shows a video on how to use this feature.

iQagent for iPhone:

  • Server version string now shows TLS when encrypted server used.
  • Settings now contains a test button for more efficient configuration.
  • iQagent ‘About’ settings are now located in the app versus IOS Settings.
  • New ‘cancel’ button present when opening a form from an info link (in case you change your mind. )

iQagent Forms for IOS (iPad/iPhone):

  • You can now manage completed forms view with the following functions:
    • Delete All submissions
    • Delete older than 3 days
    • Sort by submit date
    • Sort by name
  • History view of form submission allows user to view submission on server via URL link.
