Release Notes

New Features and Enhancements

Responsive DataPages

Now you can make your DataPages responsive by clicking a checkbox in the Wizard. Responsive DataPages adapt dynamically to mobile and tablet screens, providing the best user experience across desktops, smartphones and tablets.

All new DataPages created after this release will be responsive by default. Watch the video below for details:

Please note that enabling the responsive option will also upgrade the overall HTML structure of the DataPage. Therefore, any pre-existing DataPages that rely on custom CSS or JavaScript code should be tested that they still display and function as expected.

DataPages utilizing the previous responsive code snippets will still continue to work, but you can now use the built-in feature to take advantage of the new mobile-friendly interfaces for report navigation, inline updates, calendar date selection, and more.

Pivot table reports will be responsive in a future release.

Loops and Variables in Triggered Actions

  • A new FOR EACH block is available in the Loops section to perform repeated actions for each record of a data source or selection.
  • A new Table Variable block is available for assigning the results of a SELECT statement to a variable that can be used elsewhere in the triggered action or task.

Enhanced Dropbox and Google Drive Integration in Scheduled Tasks

Continuing with our improvements to Scheduled Tasks, Dropbox and Google Drive integrations are now enhanced with a popup window for easy navigation and selection of files or folders. Existing Dropbox and Google Drive connections can simply re-authorize to use this new feature. Box.com and OneDrive were enhanced with a similar functionality in a previous release.
