Suggestion for mobile App

Not sure where to put suggestions for the mobile app - perhaps there is already a place. If not - maybe here?

  1. Status Please! I would love to open my phone - click ‘Current Status’ and see where the forge is in the current cut. I have long running jobs and would like to login to see how they are going. I know I can open a design and it will tell me the time remaining… But that is somewhat clunky…

Dan has said to place feature requests in Problems and Support. That category is always checked by GF staff and feature requests will go into the maw of the :glowforge: hopper.

@Brandon, I moved this to Problems and support as staff always see things there.

I’m guessing this may not happen because of safety reasons. While running a laser, it is highly recommended that someone is present. You know…flammable type of stuff and all…

They basically do this now - if I select any design while it is cutting, I will see the total time left… Just want to see that data accessible in a more readily available method - and perhaps more info… if that is possible (Camera?)

I totally get what you’re asking for. On my Universal lasers I can actually watch the progress on my computer screen and it has a countdown. However if it was on an app that means it’s easier to walk away and not be near the laser as it’s working. That’s what I was referring to mostly of why I don’t think they’ll do it LOL
