    Is it possible to add the auto rotation function on the Android application as on the iOS application ?

    Hi Alexandre,

    By auto rotation are you referring to landscape mode for the mobile app ? If that is correct , its on our roadmap.

    If you are referring to something else, can you please provide more details so that we can assess.

     

    Regards

    Thank you Darshan, I hope this update will come soon, do you have idea of its release? My colleague who is a fan of Iphone makes fun of Android. More seriously, this feature is essential for everyday use.

    Hi Alexandre,

    Most welcome. Will keep you and the forum posted when this is made available for Android.

     

    It great to know that this feature is essential for everyday use. One possible scenario that I can think of is viewing the 3D model and carrying out operations. Are there other use cases that you need this for? It would be great if you could share some with us. Knowing facts from users helps us.

    Hello @Darshan Rajaram Kamat

     

    I agree with @Alexandre Collin This feature is much badly needed. We use the tablets to view models on a daily basis and to be able to view in landscape would be very beneficial. Also we view construction drawings on the tablet also and the majority of these documents are printed in landscape pdf so the site teams would benefit from being able to see them on the tablet in the same way.

     

     

    Regards

    Hello Alexandre/Bryan,

    It is a priority item for us. Our UX team will be beginning work on this soon. This will be followed by implementation. The extent of changes for implementation will be huge given that it impacts the entire application. Hence the timeline for achieving the same will be quite substantial.

    Dear Jm,

    There are no updates yet. I am providing the explanation below.

     

    We were working on one solution for the 3D model viewer to solve the issues - post which we had planned to take landscape mode. However, this option is failing in the Sanity cases (basic functionalities) . Hence we are now exploring another approach. Once this works , we will be able to asses the landscape mode. Please let me know if you have further questions. 

     

    Regards

    Hi

    What about the update with the landscape mode?
    Do you have a date when it comes? It's been almost two years already.

    Thanks for the answer

    Hello,

    I was looking for a solution for the auto rotation on Trimble. Came across your discussion while searching.
    Sorry to see no response. Is there any news from Trimble yet?
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Sjaak,
    The support for landscape mode is currently in our backlog.  There were couple of challenges we had to address on a higher priority through 2020 and 2021. Hence this couldn't be taken up.  Going by the current set of ongoing items, we may not be able to take up in 2022 as well.

    Regards

    Unbelievable.
    First asked in NOV 2018 and we're basically told that it won't happen in 2022 at all?

    Hi Dave,
    We don't want to give false commitments. Hence given the current set of items , we will not be able to take up the landscape mode auto rotation in 2022.
