Added Security Around Adding Users

iOS 13 & 14 no Longer Supported
To support new technology and provide the best SmartUse App, we will be ending support of iOS 13 & 14
If you are using a device that runs on iOS 13 & 14, we recommende moving to a newer operating system for SmartUse to perform best.
Devices using these operating systems will still be able to run their current version of the app, but they will not receive future updates and the app cannot be re-installed if removed from the device.

The weather section of the Daily Reports now includes the timestamp of when the weather was last updated and the location of where it was taken. This will be updated whenever a user opens the report, before it is committed or submitted.
