Floria App Manager
Floria App Manager 5 is compatible with IrisBG Desktop version 3.6.4 and later*. The new version is designed to improve workflow and reduce IrisBG compatibility issues going forward. Although we are expecting fewer such issues, we will test for compatibility with newer versions of IrisBG Desktop when they are released and publish the results below. With the new version of App Manager, we advise that you also ensure that staff members have the latest app version installed.
Note: Floria App Manager 5 uses the IrisBG data import feature, so you will be required to have this feature as part of your IrisBG licence. For more details about what is included in version 5, please visit this page. You can install App Manager Version 5 alongside App Manager version 4.x.
- Version 5.0.0 (2021-02-12). Tested for IrisBG Desktop version 3.6.4 and up to version 220.127.116.1191*.

Floria 5 and IrisBG compatibility*
The original integration between IrisBG and Floria (Formerly IrisBG Handheld) was based on a solution introduced in 2008. Regularly, with new updates, this integration was being changed, which required us to roll out compatible software to work with each new IrisBG version. When the IrisBG collaboration ended in December 2019, a lot of disruption was caused for customers, as new releases were no longer coordinated. Furthermore, the old integration was regulated by our collaboration agreement, so upon its termination, continued use of this integration was no longer a viable option. To find a new solution, in 2020, we switched over to the documented, stable and publicly available integration option offered via the IrisBG Data Import scheduler, specifically designed for third party integration. However, from version 4.3.1 of IrisBG, the data import integration option was restricted, which unfortunately means the product no longer offers a documented and stable integration solution for us.
We are hoping that IrisBG will change their policy and again offer a stable, documented and publicly available integration option for its customers. Until this issue is resolved, customers who want to continue to use both products have to postpone their IrisBG upgrade.
Floria App Manager version 4.x and 3.x are compatible with IrisBG Desktop of the same [major].[minor].[build] version number, up until version 4.2.3. If you have a later version of IrisBG, you will need to switch to App Manager 5. You can find out which version of IrisBG Desktop you have via the help/about menu.
Make sure you have no pending inbox entries in IrisBG Desktop before you upgrade your system.

Floria Mobile and Mobile Sync
Floria Mobile is designed for Windows Embedded Handheld which is no longer being supported nor developed by Microsoft and access to mobile devices is limited. The software platform has not been updated since 2010 and Microsoft announced the end of all support for the platform on the 14th of January 2020. The replacement product, Floria Handheld has been available for more than 2 years, which hopefully will have provided a reasonable amount of time for customers to switch over.
We will continue to offer technical assistance to users who are still using the platform, but there will be no further compatibility updates to Floria Mobile Sync. The final IrisBG Desktop version supported by Floria Mobile Sync will be IrisBG desktop version 4.2.3.
