You read that title right, Android users—the Android version of WORK[etc]‘s CRM app is now finally ready to be put through its paces during the beta testing phase. The beta test will be exclusive to members of WORK[etc] Insiders, so if you aren’t one yet, you should join now by clicking here. Once you’re in, just look for this challenge banner:

Complete this challenge on Insiders to become a WORK[etc] Android CRM app beta tester.

We’ll be rolling out the Android app’s first beta build sometime during the week of March 2. As with the iOS beta, testers are fully encouraged to report every bug and issue that they come across. Plus, we’re publishing a few exclusive challenges and a shiny new badge for Android beta testers on Insiders.

New Features and Improvements

The app’s new and improved Dashboard gives you a quick view of what you’re working on and what you have scheduled. Aside from the “Upcoming Events” and “My Recent Activity” lists, we’ve also added a “New and Updated” list to help you stay on top of every contact, support case, or project. Also, up top, you’ll see familiar icons that let you create new items in WORK[etc] with a simple tap.

You can also create anything from new leads to support tickets from virtually anywhere in the app via the Navigation Drawer. Just swipe from left to right to open the left menu and tap on the “+” buttons beside the module names. The Dashboard and Settings modules are also accessible through the Navigation Drawer.

You’ll also notice in the image below that there’s a Feedback button in the Navigation Drawer; this is only available on the beta build so testers can send bug reports and issues without having to close the app.

The Contacts module has been optimized to allow for faster searching. You can further refine and filter search results using more advanced filtering options. These options are accessible by swiping from the right to the left when searching.

Filtering isn’t limited to contacts; you can filter results on pretty much on any module in the app.

The activity history feature has been overhauled. You can now keep track of any contact’s activity, including correspondence.

Speaking of correspondence, the Android app also has the streamlined Discussions module that we built for the iPhone app so you can keep discussions going even when you’re out of the office.

The new project module includes both the Activity Stream View and Nest Tree View. Custom fields that allow users to add and collect more niche and industry-specific information to objects in WORK[etc] are also included in the beta build.

You can even snap a picture and attach it to a project—very useful for when inspiration strikes while you’re out in the field or when you have to charge a receipt against an expense. You can also upload any image you have saved on your phone.

You can also launch a timesheet from practically any screen. The feature is further enhanced with the new “Start/Stop” timer. Timers have been integrated with Android notifications, so any ongoing timers will be shown in the notification area. In the iPhone app, this is only available to those running iOS 8.1, but Android users running Jellybean and higher can all take advantage of the timers in the notification area.
