Deckhand® Pro – 3.10.73-6218

October 21st, 2022
Requires iPadOS 14 or later

This release addresses the following:


  • Account Deletion Functionality: We have introduced a new feature that allows users to delete their accounts using the “Delete Account” button. This functionality provides users with the ability to remove their accounts from within the application. Please note that the “Delete Account” button will only be enabled in cases where account creation is also possible. However, in certain markets such as NZ (New Zealand), this button may not appear due to regional restrictions or specific market limitations.


  • Improved Adaptation and Recovery in SolarVMS Driver: We have made several changes to the SolarVMS driver to enhance its adaptation and recovery capabilities in the face of errors and problems, particularly during report acknowledgement. These changes aim to provide a smoother and more robust experience when interacting with SolarVMS. With these updates, the SolarVMS driver within Deckhand Pro will be better equipped to handle various error scenarios and recover gracefully. This ensures that any issues encountered during report acknowledgement or other interactions with SolarVMS are managed more effectively, reducing disruptions and improving overall reliability.
  • Enhanced Onboarding Page for Greater Atlantic Region Users: We have made changes to the onboarding “Learn More” page specifically for users in the Greater Atlantic Region (GARFO). The updated page now provides users with options to “try for free” or “buy” the GARFO eVTR Logbook. With these modifications, users in GARFO can easily explore and choose their preferred option for accessing the GARFO eVTR Logbook. The “try for free” option allows users to experience the logbook functionality at no cost, while the “buy” option provides a direct pathway for purchasing the logbook.
  • Text Modification in Share Composition as PDF: We have made a small change to the “Share” functionality in the composition view. The text “Composition” has been removed from the “Share Composition as PDF” option when tapping on the “Share” button. With this modification, the option now simply appears as “Share as PDF” when you select the “Share” button in a composition view. This adjustment streamlines the text and provides a more concise and intuitive option for sharing compositions as PDF files.
  • Improved Logbook Name Display in CatchFlow IDE: We have made a change to the CatchFlow IDE to enhance the display of logbook names. Previously, when the name of a logbook specified in the CatchFlow IDE differed from the actual loaded logbook name in Deckhand Pro (e.g., in the case of a share-code), the actual CatchFlow IDE name will now be shown instead. With this update, the logbook name displayed in the CatchFlow IDE will accurately reflect the loaded logbook’s name in Deckhand Pro, providing users with a clearer understanding of the currently accessed logbook. This ensures consistency and avoids confusion when working with logbooks that have different names specified in the CatchFlow IDE.
  • Improved User Interface in GARFO eVTR Logbook: We have made a change to the user interface of the GARFO eVTR logbook. The word “(GENERIC)” that was previously displayed on the home screen of the logbook has been removed. While the term “(GENERIC)” still holds a specific internal meaning, we recognised that it was becoming extraneous and unnecessary information for users. By removing it from the home screen, we aim to provide a cleaner and more streamlined user experience, minimising unnecessary clutter and distractions.

Fixed Issues:

  • Event Editing Navigation After Canceling “End Trip” Process: We have resolved an issue related to event editing after canceling the “End Trip” process. Previously, when a user canceled the “End Trip” process and proceeded to edit an event, it would unintentionally navigate the user to the title screen. With this fix, editing an event after canceling the “End Trip” process will no longer result in navigation to the title screen. Users can now seamlessly resume event editing without being redirected to an unintended location, improving the overall workflow and user experience.
  • Prevented Editing of Existing Event During New Maintenance Event: We have addressed an issue where users were able to edit an existing event while a new Maintenance event was on-screen. This behavior has been fixed. With this fix, attempting to edit an existing event while a new Maintenance event is on-screen will no longer be possible. This ensures a more accurate and consistent editing experience, preventing unintended modifications to existing events during the creation of a Maintenance event.
  • Addressed Problems with Blank Names in MyDeckhand Users: We have resolved several issues related to MyDeckhand users whose names were blank. These issues included problems such as corrupt backups, missing names on the registered user page, and the inability to properly rehydrate. With this fix, users with blank names in MyDeckhand will no longer encounter these issues. The application will handle such cases correctly, ensuring the integrity of backups, displaying names accurately on the registered user page, and enabling proper rehydration of user data.
