Spring Release 2020

We welcome 2020 with a little bit of everything: a new section type, new forms for Reports and Imports, some design and functionality improvements here and there and some corrections.

The Repeater

You’ve got to try this new type of section that multiplies itself as many times as records exist, providing a quick overview of your data with all the design that a detail section stands; e.g., use it to display a list of products or services. You can even use several Repeaters combined with filters in a single form to, for instance, show works by status. 26.0 Repeater section

Reports and imports’ new look

The Report queue and the Import queue forms have been merged into a single one with possibility to customize it using standard features like showing or hiding columns of your preference, applying filters to search for logs, etc. Also, much more information is provided than before, for example, number of runs and rows, and recipients, among others. 26.0 Report and Import queue The View reports form has also been updated with the same design as the one described above (i.e., a table-like view) with additional statistic data such as reports generated in total, this and last month.
