A bug in the Audit trail resulted in the failure to record the editing and deleting of fields in forms which contained lookup fields. Although we quickly managed to fix this issue, it had already affected a small number of users across all DCs. The bug was online between 06-Mar-2023 22.26 PM PDT and 07-Mar-2023 3.17 AM PDT for a total time of 4 hours only. Affected users will be receiving a detailed email over this incident soon. Kindly accept our apologies.

We'll be coming up with a bunch of enhancements for the Widgets soon. Consequently as a prerequisite the widget names have to follow the naming guideline. You would have received an email notification if your apps had a widgets which didn't satisfy the guideline. Despite giving ample time, a handful of you still haven't updated the widget name. So we'll be going forward with automatically renaming the widgets.

  • Scenario 1 - If your widget name had special characters, then they'll be removed. 
  • Scenario 2 - If your widget had no name, then it will be assigned to the name 'Widget 1'. Subsequent unnamed widgets will be named 'Widget 2', 'Widget 3' and so on.

Overview Effect for Charts

To visualize reports with large data sets, BI & Analytics has enhanced charts with new interactive options: the overview and scroll bar effects. These enable you to plot large data on a chart to get a clear picture of the peaks and troughs in your data. 

The overview effect adds an overall preview chart (also known as an overview chart) to the bottom of a chart. It allows you to select a region to focus on a particular data range on the chart, for more in-depth analysis. 

Dynamic and more interactive scroll charts can now be used to replace filters, which are traditionally used in reports with large data sets. This enables you to easily compare data by moving the slider or scroll bar.

Adding images for your KPIs helps viewers grasp information more quickly. They also enhance the appearance of your dashboards.

    • When a developer publishes an app for two clients, A and B, and the app undergoes a few updates in the following versions. Of the two clients, the 3 versions have been published for client A, whereas client B is still in version 1. If the developer wants to publish the latest version to client B, there is a lag. If within the versions 3, there has been a renamed and deleted (same) component, which is available in client B’s app, there will be a failure while publishing the latest version. Because B has not received the update where the renaming and deleting of component had been pushed. Therefore, the latest update cannot be successfully applied. We have now fixed this issue.
