Overview of Release 23.02
Release 23.02 of CareAR Instruct app delivers the following:
- Content Download Optimization
- QR Code Support Long Link & URL Shortener
- URL Download Support
- Loader for i3D / Digital Twin
Content Download Optimization
Several optimizations have been made to reduce delay and speed the download of Advanced Content experiences. This includes the ability to open the experience to the main page sooner and the app continues to download 3D content in the background. The result is a user can start using the experience sooner rather than waiting for all content to download before opening.
QR Code Support Long Link & URL Shortener
When publishing experiences into the Experience Builder, a shortened URL and QR code is provided for users to access the experience. However, in some situations it may be desirable for the user to open a specific page within the experience. To accomplish this, you must use the full “long link” URL and add specific parameters to direct the user to the specific page (see web API for details). This long link can now be encoded in a QR code and used to distribute the experience to end users. Also, third party URL shorteners can be used to simplify the QR code. The Instruct app will now open these QR codes properly.
Additional Content Hosting Options
When publishing advanced content experiences using the Experience Builder, you can now host the content outside of the CareAR platform from your own servers or locations you specify.
Loader for i3D / Digital Twin Content
A new loading screen has been introduced when loading i3D / Digital Twin content. This loader notifies the user of the loading progress if the user is linked directly to the i3D page or if the user arrives at the page before the content has been fully downloaded.
