With this change, we have enabled all customers to use the Desktop version of Flex5.
Does that mean I don't have to use Flex4 anymore?

Flex Rental Solutions getting closer to Flex5 Desktop Release. Here’s where we are right now.
Flex Rental Solutions has been working diligently on making the transition to Flex5 Desktop. As part of the 4.27.0 release, you may have noticed some new links in Flex called "Open in Flex5" on financial documents, inventory, and some scanning screens. You will only see these links if you have the System Administrator permission granted, but this will change in the future so eventually every user will be able to see the links. Currently, these links take you to a "Coming Soon" page with information about Flex5. But in the coming weeks and months, we will be allowing some customers access to select features in Flex5 and they will be able to use the "Open in Flex5" links to quickly navigate between Flex4 (the current Flash bas

Flex Rental Solutions Announces Release of Flex5 Phone
We're announcing the release of Flex5 Phone - our newly designed mobile app - to all our users! Flex5 Phone is already available for download in the Apple App Store for iPhones and in the Google Play store for Android devices.

Flex Releases Flex5 Tablets to All Users
We're excited to announce the release of Flex5 Tablet to all our users. After months of developing, testing, beta user feedback, bug squashing, and feature improvements we're ready for the big reveal. In these past several months we have gained incredible momentum leading up to the launch of tablet. Flex5 Tablet was a big undertaking. Our approach was to design the user interface to adapt to the device and how people use applications on tablet, phone, and desktop, instead of simply shrinking a desktop environment smaller to fit on a tablet or phone.
We also laid the groundwork for a new backend architecture that will significantly improve the speed, reliability, and efficiency of the application. This is the same backend architecture and APIs that will
