PDF creation for Microsoft Field Service Mobile App (Version 18.104.22.168
We urgently need back the pdf creation possibility in the Microsoft Field Service Mobile App (Version 22.214.171.124). All our reports base on that functionality. PDF creation was available in the former Microsoft Field Service Mobile App and it is available in the current non MS branded app.
PDF reports generation is available in FSM-Xamarin app version 12.1.212+
PDF report generation is available in the D365 Field Service Mobile application via PCF control: Field Service technician service reporting | Microsoft Docs

List of open work orders as a Bing Map view
To switch from the pesky Woodford app to Field Service Mobile, I just need one more feature:
The expiring Resco Mobile App can switch between open work orders as a list or as a map view. This map view is great.

Inspections for Field Service Mobile
Many times a service call will need the ability to include an inspection or inspections with the service. This includes multiple types of data and would be similar in nature to a Voice of The Customer style inspection report.
Inspections capabilities are now avialable for Field Service Mobile.

Background App Refresh/Offline Sync
Hope everyone is doing great. For one of our customer we are migrating from MS native Field service mobile app (Xamarin) to PowerApp Field service.
In the new app offline sync was configured, when user switch to another and keep the PowerApp running in the background and switch back to P...
Thank you for the feedback. Due to device OS limitations the Field Service Mobile applicaiton will not sync while in the background on iOS. However, on Android the application will continue to sync provided there are enough device resources available to the application. This is the same behavior that you would observe with the legacy Field Service Mobile - Xamarin application which will be under the same device based limitations. If Offline sync is paused due to app being moved to the background or closed, it will resume from where it left off once the application resumes.
If you have further questions on this please reach out to Field Service Mobile Feedback firstname.lastname@example.org.

Enable downloading of offline updates to continue even when iPad/iPhone is in sleep mode
Our maintenance workers are operating in locations where mobile connection is not available. As such they must download all the required data to their device at the start of the day so that they can work in offline mode later. Due to the amount of data, the initial downloading takes about 75 minu...
Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately we are unable to act on this ask due to device OS restrictions.
You may be able to help mitigate this issue with further optimization of your offline profile to reduce data volume which will reduce sync time. If you have questions on this, please reach out to Field Service Mobile Feedback email@example.com
Field Service Mobile Drip Scheduling
Allow for bookings to be drip scheduled to the technicians on the mobile device. The number of bookings visible should be a configurable variable. Depending on that number, the agenda view and any bookings views would show the appropriate number of records based on the start time descending.
Thank you for the feedback. We are evaluating this as a future enhancement.
