Should we set our Application Settings to 2.2?

If we are editing our application now, in Application Settings under the
Commcare version drop down should we now set it to 2.2, even if it was
created in 2.0?
Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,

All older v2 app versions (as of today those are 2.0, 2.1) are compatible
with newer v2 CommCareODK client versions (as of today, 2.2). So you will
not need to update your app version to match the latest client version.

Thanks,
Amelia

Steve,

Generally speaking it is almost always best to keep your application’s
version up to date with the newest release, especially if it’s still under
construction. Mobile users who’s devices haven’t updated yet will receive a
message from CommCare if their current CCODK version needs to be upgraded
to receive an app update.

We don’t automatically update application versions automatically in order
to support users who need to maintain a specific version for internal
purposes. Strictly speaking the only time you’d need to update your app
is if you were running on j2me (Nokias, etc) and wanted the new release’s
features and fixes, or if you wanted to take advantage of an application
feature or configuration which isn’t available in apps configured for
previous versions, but it almost never hurts to do so.
