March 18, 2019

Changes

  • In new signups, two choices with the same value and letter case will not be allowed in drop down, radio, multi select, and checkbox fields. For example, you will not be allowed to have "Open" and "open" (case difference in "o") as choices in the same field. Choices with the same value were being permitted when they had at least one difference in their letter case.

Bug fixes


March 15, 2019

Improvements

  • While accessing ZML based pages from web browsers and mobile devices, elements related to form will now automatically be refreshed when users add, edit, and delete records. Things to note:
    • The elements that will be refreshed are panels, charts, reports (except pivot reports).
    • The create, update, and delete operations must happen from the same window. In other words, the corresponding form or its report must be embedded in that page. Opening the form (from the page) in a pop-up or new window will not auto-refresh the related elements in that page.

Bug fixes

  • While accessing spreadsheet reports in accounts using New UI and accounts using Zoho Creator 5, saving the changes made to a column's width was not working as expected.
  • While accessing ZML pages in a pop-up window, users weren’t able to see the record count when they hovered over a chart.

March 14, 2019

Bug fixes

March 9, 2019

Bug fixes

March 8, 2019

Bug fixes

  • In accounts using Zoho Creator 5, when page parameter is set with a value that contains a special character, printing that page as PDF was rendering a blank PDF.
  • Upon printing the report as summary in accounts using New UI and accounts using Zoho Creator 5, the report's overall summary was overlapping the sumarry of records.

March 1, 2019

Improvements

Bug fixes / Changes

  • When a lookup field displays data from another app, customer portal users will not be allowed to add new entries in the looked-up form. They will instead be shown a message. Reason: Customer portal is meant to give your customers a restricted access to your app. Entering data in to another app via a lookup field is therefore not allowed.

February 28, 2019

Improvements

  • In accounts using Zoho Creator 5, two new themes (the eighth and ninth) have been introduced with regard to accessing apps from web browsers:
    • Both themes list sections on the left, with a section's icon placed above its title
    • The eighth theme sports a separate column to show the components (forms, reports, and pages) within a section and the ninth one shows the components when you hover over the section
    • Based on the color applied to these themes, the sections, app's icon, and app's header will undergo subtle UI changes

Bug fixes

    • Lookup fields will accept new values (i.e., values that are not present in the looked-up form) when their Allow new entries property is enabled
