Switch permissions on/off

Permissions
We've updated how our permissions work at both the app and object level.
Previously, permissions were always on and you had to make sure all roles were ticked (if configured) if you wanted to confer permission to all users.
Now you can choose to disable permissions completely for a given table. This means that all users with access to the app will see all records, all fields and be able to create new records and update records.

You can also choose to disable permissions at the app level - there is now a toggle in App Settings which, if unticked, will bring new tables in to your app with permissions off by default. However, you can still choose to enable permissions on a table by table basis when this is the case.

Note:
For existing apps, permissions already configured will be unaffected and the default table permissions will be enabled, meaning new tables will have permissions on (and will need configuring).
For new apps, the default table permissions will be disabled, meaning new tables will have permissions off (and will need to be switched on if required).
Share new pages with all Roles
new
Permissions
Pro
We've updated our page sharing settings so that you can now more easily show a new table included from your data source to all roles.
Previously, when you enabled a new table you had to manually tick all of the roles to grant page permissions. Now any new table included will have all roles ticked by default.

You can choose to disable page permissions for specific roles by unticking the boxes in the Role settings within a particular table:
allroles
Note:
This change does not confer default object permissions for the table - if you have permissions enabled you will still need to configure them before your users can see records within the new table.
Avoid data loss when leaving an unsaved Edit form
new
Previously, if you exited an Edit Form before hitting save, you would lose the changes you had made.
Now you will see a modal prompting you to Save, Discard or Stay on the page if you try to navigate away without saving.

Action Buttons
new
BETA
With this feature you can create custom buttons on your detail pages that perform updates on the current record through a pop-up.
You specify which fields are to be updated as part of the action and also can set the value of the field to be updated.
The buttons may be conditionally displayed depending on user role or current field values.

Update: Action Buttons can now be configured inline - you can edit them directly from the page button list on the detail page itself.
Note:
This feature is currently in beta. Please contact support if you wish to have it activated on your app.
Inline single/multi-select filters respect the ordering defined in the field.
improved
Previously, inline single/multi-select filters displayed the options ordered alphabetically/numerically.
Now they will respect the order defined in the field itself.

Personalization during Onboarding and Auto-Logo Generation
new
The onboarding flow when setting up a new app now includes a personalization stage where you can set your:
  • Logo
  • Nav bar theme (Light/Dark)
  • Brand Colour
If you don't want to add in a logo, we now automatically generate one based upon your app's name.

File extension lost upon upload
fixed
Data
Previously when uploading a file, the file loses its name and file extension. For example, 'Sophia_Resume_2020.pdf becomes ‘xGvOQxOSS9GQsFIfDl3Y’.
This has now been fixed so that files retain their name.
