Hi Xerte Community,
I find the googledoc grid with Xerte page type information very useful.
Will you be in-hiding the 'mobile device' usability column on the googledoc once it is ready?
I like to give advice regarding using mobile phones and which activities play and which activities don't.
If it is of any help, I find gap fill, drag and drop, Thunbnail viewer, Inventory and Categories page types do not play well on a mobile phone. Any more I should avoid and tell users to avoid for mobile phone?
Thank you
Anne

Hi Anne

Yes, I do plan on making that column available once the information in it has been reviewed. On the whole I'd agree that pages involving any drag & drop functionality aren't ideal on mobile devices due to the screen size available. However, they can work ok if there aren't too many labels/catergories/hotspots.

Thanks
Fay
