Apply form rules on report and rich text components
On September 5th, builders will be able to conditionally control the appearance of more form components – report and rich text. You'll have more control over the appearance of the forms and can make sure that the right information is presented to the different users you have. The available form rules actions for the new components will be show, hide and change label.
Form rules validation for missing information
We’re adding a visual indication when there is missing information in the form rule on the new forms. For example, we'll indicate when there are issues like
- A field used in a condition has been deleted from the table
- A form element used in an action has been removed from the form canvas
This will help builders to easily identify problems with their form rules.
Revision history for file attachments
On September 5th, we'll be adding revision history information to the file attachments on new forms. Users can access it using the new button. This will help you to easily manage and restore old revisions of the file attachments.
Other Forms updates
- You can now select which modes sections show up in forms similar to fields (add/edit/view).
- Fields will now highlight in yellow when there is a dynamic update to them via form rules or a formula recalculation.
- Report types other than table/timeline now have options on the form to hide the toolbar.
Solutions permission model expansion: Super users included
Starting August 30, we are expanding our permission model to include super users. This gives admins an elevated level of control they can designate to others in their organization. Super users can add all apps in a realm to a solution. If apps are private, super users can only add them if they are also the app owner. Read more in the My solutions help article.
Solution Versioning: New forms now included
Starting this month, your new forms across your Solutions will be stored as parts of versions and can be rolled back just like any other schema. Read more about Solution Versioning.
Mobile Dashboards updates
A new mobile app version (1.53) will be released in the App Store and Google Play at the end of August with new enhancements to our Mobile Dashboards experience.
Applied filters displayed on the Dashboard canvas
With this update, you will be able to effortlessly view the number of filters you've applied directly on the dashboard. You'll have the power to see the exact filters in use and remove them right from the dashboard interface.
Scan a QR or barcode in the search widget
The search widget will include the option to scan a QR code or barcode. The scanned content can be used as a search term, providing you with quicker access to relevant data and insights.
Pipelines Copy Records
- There will be no limit for transferring data from one table to another.
- Deleting a value from the Source table export fields field in the Copy records step will not make the pipeline invalid and it will continue to run normally
- Improved error handling for field type mismatches and changed behavior to support line errors for partial success.
