New features

Copy/Paste in form and workflow editors

When working in the form or workflow editor in a service, process or grouped activity, you can select one or more fields or activities by clicking in their headers (use Ctrl and/or Shift to select multiple) and then cut or copy them to the clipboard using either right-click to bring up a context menu, or using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl-X. You can then paste the content of the clipboard in a different place (using the context menu or Ctrl+V), or even in a different service/process/grouped activity.

The content placed on the clipboard is in JSON format so you can easily share any content by simply pasting it into a text document, an email, a Slack or Skype conversation etc. To use the shared JSON string, simply copy it and then paste it into a new form or workflow.

Note: Because of security related restrictions, copy/paste using the context menu only works with Chrome and IE browsers. Other browsers do not allow us to access the clipboard directly (except for Firefox which allows write/copy operations). Keyboard shortcuts however work in any browser (tested in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox and Safari). Below is a list of keyboard shortcuts added in this version. | Keyboard shortcut | Action | | ----------- | ----------- | |Ctrl+A|Select all fields/activities| |Ctrl+D|Deselect all| |Ctrl+C|Copy selected fields/activities| |Ctrl+X|Cut selected fields/activities| |Ctrl+V|Paste fields/activities (if a field/activity is selected, the content of the clipboard will be inserted before the selected field/activity, otherwise it will be pasted at the end of the selected container)| |Ctrl+S|Save the service, process or grouped activity| |Delete|Delete the selected fields/activities|


We've adjusted the image gallery so that it only shows thumbnails when it's relevant, when it includes more than one image.


Form Functions

Form functions is a new way of working with javascripts in service forms. Script code that you tend to use frequently can now be stored as functions inside script classes in the database. The script classes can then be imported from the "Edit Scripts" dialog in the form editor which makes their exported functions available in the onLoad, onChange and onSubmit events. Script classes can be stored in js files on an external file system, a GIT repo etc, and uploaded to the database when tested and approved. And if you are a central administrator, you can delegate selected classes to customer stores as well.

Notification interval changes

Whenever a user loads the UserWeb site in his/her browser, a javascript queries the backend for any new events such as order progress, new tasks etc. The results are then displayed as notification count icons on the Activity Feed and To-Do List tabs.

Previously the query was executed on a fixed interval of four seconds, but lately we have been receiving reports of high loads on the backend servers, both web and database, that seems to be related to those queries.

In this version we have therefore changed the interval to 60 seconds while the user is active, and 10 minutes if the user is inactive.

Activity is measured by recording mouse-clicks and keyboard events, and the user is considered inactive when no events are reported during a five minute period.
