  • The Content Designer has been revamped:

New tabs - [Design], [Headers] and [Preview]. The tabs reflect the natural process of designing an email template: general setup; populating sender data (name, email address) and headers; previewing the template for different views: for various mail clients, web browsers and mobile devices.

The new validation panel displays any errors detected while saving the template.

  • Added a new “Draft” status for emails. The email is saved as a draft if there are errors while saving a template. Draft emails cannot be sent, added to a campaign or a split test. Once all errors in the template are resolved, the email status will automatically change to “Planned” and the email will become available again.

  • Users who work with ElasicEmail can now use a single confirmation domain to send emails from several bpm’online applications. Please contact bpm’online support to enable this functionality.

  • The accuracy of currency conversion has been increased for cases where the exchange rates differ by several orders of magnitude.  

Forecasts

We have completely revamped the [Forecasts] section.

  • You can enter forecast data manually, map database fields, or calculate custom values using formulas.

  • In the file system development mode, local source code schema resources are exported to the file system immediately after the changes are saved in designers and wizards, without the need to export packages to the file system manually.

  • The coding in the configuration compilation error message in the [Advanced settings] section has been fixed. The error occurred if the Russian language was specified as the “language for non-Unicode programs” in Windows settings.

  • The jQuery library has been updated from version 1.1.2 to 2.2.4. You can return to the previous version by specifying the default “jQuery” value in a corresponding system setting (code: “jQueryFileName”). To use the updated library, set the default value to “jQuery-2.2.4”.
