    I really like the Dashboard!

    I would like to see it available as a native app on a smartphone.

     Hey @AZStorageGuy, apps are really convenient. I'll see if development has thoughts on that. Stay tuned...

    AZStorageGuy, the development team got back to me right away and here's the thinking regarding apps:

    Native Apps are very limited and cannot handle the level of functionality that is offered by myHub.  SiteLink myHub will automatically adapt to the screen size of the device that is accessing it and provide you with an excellent user interface.

    So there it is! It was a great question that I know others were thinking too, so thanks for putting it out there.

    Edit: Check this out, this may be what you're looking for: Save a shortcut to SiteLink myHub as an icon on your smartphone or tablet

    Makes sense to me.  That just means Sitelink is too beefy for an app format!

    Thanks, @Sue_Community_Mgr.

    @AZStorageGuy - another thing to consider regarding mobile apps. Development can be slower since separate coding is needed for each platform's app (Mac, Android, Windows, etc.) Upkeep is also cumbersome, as every new iOS, Android or Windows mobile update can cause problems and require retooling.

    Since web browsers, for the most part, abide by a standard language, SiteLink is able to focus on core development instead of platform nuances. And as already stated, greater functionality is available through myHub as a browser-based interface, instead of it being a native app.

    Maybe I'm just missing something, but I don't seem to be able to do some basic functions, like email invoices and past due notices, enter inquiries and reservations, or pull some reports.  Are these functions still being added?

    I used to take the company laptop home with me every day in case I needed to look at someone's account. It used to take me 5-10 minutes waiting on the computer to start and logging in to Sitelink. Now it takes me just a few seconds. I also love the fact that you can jump from one facility to another without having to log back in every time.

    Correct @AStorage, SiteLink myHub is still growing in functionality. It works in conjunction with SiteLink Web Edition, providing convenience for certain tasks and will eventually contain all functionality of Web Edition and then some.

    Currently under development for SiteLink myHub is the addition of Inquiries and Reservations which should be released in the next 2-3 months. The addition of the Site Map is also under development and a priority. We will post announcements in StorageForum, in our monthly eNewsletter and via other avenues once new feature are available.

    It great for home use.
  • Sue_CSue_C NADaily Operations Certified, Advanced Operations Certified, Administrator Certified ✭✭✭✭✭
    Good point, @moreno1957, the mobility of myHub makes it easy to check in from home too. Thanks for adding that.

    So i attempted MyHUB from my tablet at home last night but couldn't do much other than stare at the screen and scratch my head.  Dont think for Portable storage it is going to work.

    Correct, SiteLink myHub is not compatible with the Mobile Storage version of SiteLink Web Edition at this time.

    MyHub was a lifesaver when we had a computer crash last month.
  • PhilRPhilR New ZealandRegistered User ✭✭
    Started to use it more and more. It'd be great to see some of the web edition items come on line overtime. Things like the reminders, calendar, collections items etc.

    We receive an banking report from our head office every morning and we enter each AP with the date back-dated to the previous day so it matches the bank statements. It'd be nice to see that feature added as things progress. I looked at adding in all the banking via myHub rather than the web addition but I think the web edition will be quicker at this stage.

    We recently had a power outage at our facility. We were able to continue taking payments using My Hub on our smart phones!

    Absolutely love it!
