Platform - September 2021

 

 

Please Note: Beginning with this release, new releases will be designed for the next generation of the Platform. While there are some exceptions, new features will not be available in Legacy. But never fear, we'll make sure we don't break anything in Legacy with the next generation excitement ;).
The next generation of the Platform just got here, but that doesn't mean we're finished! Be on the lookout for enhancements, polishes, and fixes coming in this release and many more beyond!
    Searching, Selections, & Views
    • Enhanced searching in List Layout to allow for comma searching. That's right, we were listening and we heard you! Searching with a comma in List Layout will treat the comma as a wildcard search. For example, on the Participants page in List Layout, searching for "Jones, John" will return results that have both "Jones" and "John."
    • Enhanced the Selected record count to fully display on desktop.
    • Renamed the "Delete" selection action button to "Clear" for, well, for clarity ;).
    • Fixed an issue where the Advanced Search Tool date filter changed when the tool was saved and reopened or a switched between the form and SQL tabs in the tool.
    • Fixed an issue where searches were cleared when results were toggled to "not in."
    User Interface
    • Enhanced default layout so that the Grid Layout will be in the default if: 1) the User is on a desktop; 2) there is not a Facts View assigned to the Page; and 3) the User has not selected the List Layout. You asked for it and we heard you! If you have an idea, add it to the Idea Board and you may see it as a future enhancement!
    • Enhanced the New Record button to appear when no results are returned and when multiple results are returned.
    • Enhanced the Show More dialog size to be consistent with other dialogs.
    • Increased the size of the arrow icons in the Basic Navigation menu to emphasize their presence and make them easier to select.
    • Fixed an issue where users without edit and messaging rights were shown a white line underneath the action menu button.
    • Fixed an issue where Opportunities with a Maximum Needed of zero would cause an error.
    • Fixed an issue where copying an email address added "%20" to the front of the email address.
    • Fixed an issue where accessing the Home screen on mobile produced errors in certain systems.
    • Fixed an issue in the Group Facts View where a very large Group Capacity would cause an error in list view. Note: This update will not be applied if you have modified your Group Facts View.

    Records
    • *New* Exporting is fully supported, as allowed by Security Roles.
    • Enhanced the Record Picker dialog to focus the curser in the search box when opened.

    • Fixed an issue where trying to access a read-only Page or Sub-Page returned an error message.
    • Fixed an issue where UTC time was being added to times when sending notifications via processes. The domain time will now be displayed.
