How Do I Check the App’s Database Version Number?

What is a Database Version Number and Why is It Important?

An app database version number indicates what edition of the app is installed on a device. It is important to know the version number of the installed app in order to diagnose any issues or oddities that may arise. It is also helpful for testing the updates you make in the VisitApps MAS.

For best performance, apps should be kept up-to-date and devices should have the most recent versions installed.
