As end user you can expect the following new features.

Table HandlingPermanent link for this heading

In the detail view, the alternatively available table editing can be enabled by pressing the “Table Handling” button (Alt + F2) in the column header. This makes the operation similar to a spreadsheet program:

  • The cells are displayed with border lines.
  • The hover highlighting is displayed per cell.
  • Cells that cannot be edited are displayed with a gray background.
  • Editing a cell is activated with F2, a double-click (fast and slow) or typing letters/numbers.
  • A click on the object name does not open the object.

Filtering in ColumnsPermanent link for this heading

In the detail view, you can enable the column filter using the “Filter” context menu command in the column header. For object, date and enumeration properties, a values filter is available in addition to the text filter. When using the text filter, all rows containing the entered string are displayed.  When using the values filter, all rows that correspond to the selected values are displayed.

Generate PDF Overview on the DevicePermanent link for this heading

In the Fabasoft Cloud Client options, you can specify on the “Content” tab whether you want to generate a PDF view locally with Microsoft Office. If you generate a PDF view by default, you still have the option of disabling this option in individual cases when uploading in order to achieve better performance.

Display SettingsPermanent link for this heading

You can customize the view of lists according to your requirements. If you need the settings in different lists, you can save, load, copy and paste the settings via the “View” > “Display Settings” menu (the menu bar must be displayed).

If you have a template management license, you can also save display settings to a presettings collection. This way, for example, organization administrators can provide predefined display settings (see also chapter “Template Management”).

Handle Infected DocumentsPermanent link for this heading

A virus scan is carried out regularly in the Fabasoft Cloud. If viruses are found, the respective Teamroom administrators are informed by e-mail. Using the “Handle Infected Document” action, Teamroom administrators can either mark the document as incorrectly classified or download and clean it. Be aware of the risks involved in downloading infected files to your computer. Cleaned documents can be uploaded again using the “Upload” action.

  • For fields, a description can be defined that is displayed in addition to the label.
  • Forms can also be used to define compound types, which in turn can be used in other forms as types for input fields or element lists. In addition to the standard display of the aggregate values, they can also be displayed as a configurable diagram.
  • You can define for background tasks whether the background task is automatically suspended when the affected object is deleted or canceled and again activated when the object is restored.
  • You can define for processes whether the process is automatically suspended when the affected object is deleted or canceled and again activated when the object is restored.
