This version provides new features and a few corrections.
You may now easily subscribe to the events you are attending (and only those events, not the ones you declined). To do so, use the gear icon from the list of upcoming events. You will find a button to copy the subscription URI to your mobile device’s clipboard.
Basic application preferences (at the moment whether you want to show the help tooltips) are now accessible from the general application settings in iOS. This is much more natural and UX-friendly since LionsBase mobile finally behaves like any other standard app you install on your device.
How to add calendar subscriptions to your iPhone or iPad¶
Once you copied the subscription URI, you may create a new calendar for those Lions events. Here are the steps.
Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on Accounts & Passwords.
Tap on Add Account.
Tap on Other.
Tap on Add Subscribed Calendar under the Calendars section.
Paste the server location you got from the mobile application.
Tap the Next button.
Tap the Save button.
That’s it, the list of upcoming Lions events will now show up in the Calendar app.
Depending on how you synchronize your iPhone or iPad, you may need to repeat the operation on your computer as well.
- Export of Lions events to your calendar is fixed. We figured out that most of the time the application froze while trying to tell you that the event had been exported; well, in fact, the event was not even properly exported every time.
- Upgrade of various internal components and libraries.
The way credentials and settings are persisted has been streamlined and is now using a better approach. Instead of keeping legacy code and since the application does not let you configure many settings anyway, we did not implement a migration path. This means that after the upgrade to this version, you will have to reconfigure your multi district, username, password and possibly whether you want the help tooltips shown.
The sources of news you are interested in is stored centrally with your LionsBase profile and is as such not impacted by this change.
