Bulk email

 

You will be able to personalize email subject using macros. You will be able to add values from any contact field or any other bpm’online record linked to the recipient’s contact. For example, you will be able to use recipient’s name and title in the email subject.

You will also be able to set up displaying of different content types within the same bulk email for different customer segments. For instance, you can setup either sending of different email templates or displaying different content blocks within the same template for bulk email participants who belong to different dynamic folders. Every campaign participant thus will be receiving the most relevant information.

Campaigns

 
  • New campaign element: [Create/Edit object]. This element will enable you to add new or edit existing objects as part of your automated marketing campaigns. For example, you can modify order status, add products, plan activities, etc.

  • New campaign element: [Add upon signal]. The element will enable you to run separate campaign steps upon signal as soon as a record that corresponds to the set conditions appears in bpm’online. For instance, an email confirming order or event registration will be sent to a contact right after a landing page web-form is submitted.

  • In addition to selecting an existing contact folder, there will appear an opportunity to set up filter conditions in the campaign designer [Add from folder] element properties area. You will also be able to add campaign participants repeatedly.

  • icn_mobile.pngMobile application

    Contact number auto-detection

     

    When receiving incoming calls, mobile app users on iOS will be able to auto-detect phone numbers of bpm’online contacts who are not in the device’s phone book.

    Rules for automatic linking of emails

     

    A number of pre-set rules for linking emails to bpm’online opportunities, orders, leads and cases will be added. For example, if an email was received from a customer who has an open opportunity, and the current user is a member of the opportunity team, the email will be linked to the corresponding opportunity. The rules will be available in the [Opportunities], [Orders], [Leads] and [Cases] sections. The setup process for custom linking rules will be simplified. Linking rules can be individually enabled or disabled for each mailbox.

    Integration with web services

     
  • When you set up a web service, you will have an opportunity to send test queries for verifying its operation without creating business processes.

  • The web service setup will be considerably accelerated due to automatic parsing of web service request and response examples (obtained from web service documentation) as well as the test query responses.

  • icn_business_procecces.pngBusiness processes

    Business process elements

     
  • You will be able to work with parameters of the “Data collection” type via the [Read data] element. You will also be able to map such parameters in your business processes.

  • A new type of [Sub-process] element will be implemented. You will be able to use it for running many separate process instances based on data collections. All the process instances can be run simultaneously or one by one. For instance, you will be able to calculate a discount for every customer from the selection and record it on the customer’s page.

  • icn_dcm.pngCase management

    Case log

     

    The new log will enable tracking the progress of case instances. The case log will save case launch and execution history for each case instance, stage and step. Each case instance will contain information on the time when the case was initiated, what stage is the case on now, who and when transitioned between the stages and who performed the case steps. Additionally, you will be able to resume or cancel case instances directly from the case log.

    icn_user_settings.pngUser customization tools

    Business rules

     

    Business rule configuration in the section wizard will be simplified. New business rule features will include:

    • Simpler and more intuitive setup of filtering actions.

    • Ability to set up populating and deleting the values in the fields in a filtering action.

    • Ability to populate a field with default value.

    Predictive data analysis

     

    We will add tools for creating and setting up machine learning models for predictive scoring in any bpm’online section. These models will automatically calculate the probability of a target event. The prognosis will be based on the historical data analysis as well as real-time data analysis.

    Pop-up summary setup

     

    We will implement user pop-up summary setup so that you could quickly add and view section records.

    Section wizard

     
  • You will be able to change the field properties when setting up a record page in the section wizard. For instance, there will be an opportunity to set the length of a string field, setup the value accuracy in the “Decimal” type filed, etc.

  • We will enable creating additional edit pages by copying the existing ones. For instance, you will be able to create partners’ account edit pages based on customer account edit page.

  • Detail wizard

     
  • An object will automatically be created for a new detail in the [Configuration] section whenever you create a new detail in the detail wizard.

  • You will now have an opportunity to setup filter conditions for displaying detail records when you add a detail to a page. For example, you will be able to display only activities of the “Meeting” type on the [Activities] detail of the contact page.

  • Creating of a new section based on an existing object

     

    We will enable you to create new sections based on existing bpm’online objects.

    icn_performance.pngPerformance

    Faster data exchange

     

    We will add web socket support when deploying bpm’onlie as a web farm.

    icn_development.png Development tools

    Removing the EntitySchema class inheritors

     

    In 7.12.2, all inheritors of EntitySchema classes, such as ContactSchema, AccountSchema, etc. will be completely removed from the configuration assembly Terrasoft.Configuration.dll. Entity class inheritors, such as Contact or Account will work as before. This will not affect the behavior of classes that work with the database, such as EntitySchemaQuery, SelectQuery, InsertQuery, etc.

    In 7.12.2, this behavior will be optional: generation of these classes can be restored with a special setting. Starting with 7.13.0, generation of EntitySchema class inheritors will not be possible. If these classes are still used in your configuration, you will need to revise your code.

    For example, replace

    var contactSchema = new ContactSchema(entitySchemaManager)

    with

    var contactSchema = entitySchemaManager.GetInstanceByName("Contact").

    ServiceStack upgrade

     

    ServiceStack library will be upgraded from version 3 to version 5 in bpmonline 7.12.2. Significant changes have been introduced between these versions, which might require code adaptation.

    The modification will not be optional: if you use these library classes in your configuration, you will need to revise your code.

    Please note, that all features listed above are currently a work-in-progress and a subject to change without notice.
