Version 7.3.3

Release Date

September, 15th 2020


iOS 12, iOS 13, iOS 14, iPadOS 13, iPadOS 14

Right in time for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. This release fixes a bug in the presentation of questions associated to large events such as a national convention.

What’s New

Whenever you create an event with a few “simple” questions, the LionsBase mobile application will automatically create clever sections to group the questions together.

A common case is that you start with a checkbox-based question “Participation” with a few authorized “answers” (e.g., “Preparation meeting”, “Visit”, “Dinner” and “Debriefing”):

Question of type checkbox

and then a few other questions of any type (radio-based, single text, …):

Other types of questions

The mobile application would show 2 sections for your questions, the first one grouping the YES/NO (checkbox-based) questions together and then all other type questions:

At this point, you may still wonder what is the exact difference between checkbox-based questions and radio-based questions. From the screenshots above, it should be clear how a checkbox-based question is presented: the authorized “answers” are actually rendered as separate questions which allow you to answer with either “yes” or “no” to each of them.

A radio-based question on the other hand uses the various authorized answers as options to be chosen from; this means that you are presented with an option picker and need to choose one single answer that fits your needs:

Now, for larger events such as a national convention, it is common that the YES/NO (checkbox-based) questions are flagged as “meta-events”, which allow them to be considered a bit like “sub-events”. Those “meta-events” may have a dedicated price associated to them, possibly a restriction on the number of participants, or even targeted at some functions (e.g., district governors and 1st vice-governor), members of a given district (e.g., general assembly of district West) or only at external guests (e.g., city tour for the partners of the Lions members).

In that context, the organizer uses questions of type “Header” to visually separate the numerous meta-events:

Preparation of questions associated to a National Convention

The expected rendering is then to use those Headers to group the YES/NO questions together instead of using their “Question” part as title for the section.

It is precisely this grouping that was not working properly in the mobile application and is now corrected.

Other Changes

In addition, a few bugs have been squashed and minor enhancements integrated:

  • the animation of the photo and background image when you scroll a person’s profile (or a club’s profile) is much more smooth and now features a parallax effect;

  • we dropped the option to enlarge a member’s photo as most photos were actually smaller than displayed by default. If you want a higher resolution for your address book, then simply export the member’s card;

  • events whose registration ends in the next 10 days are listed in the upcoming events on the dashboard but disappeared from that list on the last day of the registration; this is now fixed;

  • skills and interests may now be edited similarly to your social networks from within your own profile page (read more);

  • sometimes the last twinning club was partially hidden; we added some extra padding to be on the safe side;

  • various internal libraries have been upgraded.
