introduce the all new Land Surveyors United Mobile Version of the Network (in Beta)! You can access the mobile version from any and all mobile devices here: http://landsurveyorsunited.com/m ANY Device, ANYwhere. ANYtime This new mobile version has many unique features not available in previous version or even the Iphone version. Let's take a look at some of these new features and learn how they are used.

New Features for Mobile Network

Endless

Endless

New Sign-Up

Surveying Photos

Scrolling

and Sign In

When using the mobile version, there is no possible way that you could not find something to interest you, while surfing from the field. All pages on the mobile version endlessly scroll when you reach the bottom of the page, serving you up more and more topics.

New Sign-in with options of signing in with Facebook, Yahoo,Twitter, Linkedin and Google (if you have them configured in your profile). Easy connect and simple communication from anywhere, on any device.

One of the requests we had was the ability to see more photos than the limiting 15 or so photos you see from the network feed. So this version satisfies that in a huge way! You can sit and scroll through land surveying photos all day if you want! Enjoy!

Go and Stay Productive!

Finding Your Groups While On the Go When you're out surveying in the field and using our mobile network interface from your phone, it occurred to me that you would have an easier time finding which group forum to post to, if you could just click My Groups and proceed to starting a discussion in the relevant group. So I've done the leg work and made this easier for you. Take a look at the new drop-down menu beside the search bar, which will make it super simple for you to find your groups on the mobile version of our group forums page. Take a look at this image (above) for reference on how to find it inside the mobile network.

Stay Connected Locally and Survey Globally Network With Your Local Group Members We are all part of a dynamic group or society of professionals based on the geographic location of our homes. By searching the new mobile groups, you can join a group forum based on your location and share experiences right from the field. This will give us all a better understanding of what it is like to be a surveyor in your area. Tell us about the challenges you face such as environmental hurdles, wildlife safety, weather conditions, etc. In our pursuit of a more global understanding of how surveyors operate around the world, we can better equip ourselves for the challenges found within the industry through creation of awareness. Share Important Announcements in Your Area State Boards, Professional Associations and Societies can all benefit from the ability to keep everyone on the same page by making your most important announcements known by sharing them in the local group forum based on a location. This will also make it simpler to notify everyone of changes in a calendar or having local chapters RSVP for important events. Fix Your Broken Equipment

Ever had something break in the field? Sure we all have. By searching for the manufacturer of the equipment and asking a question inside the correct group forum, you are effectively targeting your question towards other members who are familiar with that type of equipment. You could, for example, ask if some other surveyor out there might have a user guide for the type of equipment you are using. Now with Mobile Group Forums all of this can be possible without having to pack up and head back to the office. Troubleshoot Errors and Issues While IN the Field Errors can destroy a productive day of surveying. Nevertheless, many errors can be resolved quickly by asking a fellow surveyors who have dealt with and over come those errors. Many errors for equipment simply have never been documented and therefore you may never find the solution without asking a fellow experienced surveyor. Use the Mobile Group Forums feature as your Get Out of Jail Free Card and contribute solutions to common problems so that other surveyors can benefit from your experience, while on the go!

Less Bugs and More Features Bug Smashing Mobile Rover Update Tighting up the final stages of this phase for the Mobile Rover, and just wanted to let you know of a few of the bugs we fixed, features added and things you can do with the new Land Surveyors United Mobile. ~We provided an option for you to set the view for a Stories, Forum, Event or Groups page to My Blog Posts, My Events, My Discussions etc. This will mean that signed in members see their own list of items. ~We added the day of the week to the Event listing heading, so that surveyors can see at a glance what day of the week an event is on. If you know of an upcoming event in your area, please add it to the network. Events for now can only be added via the desktop version of Land Surveyors United, but working on the mobile solution. ~For Forums, Surveyor Stories and Photos, we've added a "Show Search and Filter options" checkbox to the management screen that will put a search field and dropdown filter for available views into the mobile page. Groups and Events currently have this, and now you have the option to provide it to members for other page types as well. ~We fixed the issue where members couldn't friend other members via mobile.
