UsersPermanent link for this heading

As an end user you can expect the following new features.

Collections for Templates and PresettingsPermanent link for this heading

To simplify the management of templates and presettings, templates, text modules, insight apps, forms, categories, processes and presettings can be managed together in a “Collection for Templates and Presettings”. Separate areas are available in the collection for this purpose.

Thus, templates and presettings of a use case can be combined and you only have to assign access rights once.

Users with the “Full Control” or “Change Access” roles are no longer implicitly offered the templates for use. In order to use the templates, the “User” role is also required.

Users with the “Read Access” role can only use templates and presettings if they are explicitly referenced, for example, in the context of an app room. Thus, templates can be centrally managed in the collection but they are not generally offered.

The migration of the old collections to collections for templates and presettings is automatically performed. If desired, you can merge the collections manually.

  • In a template and presetting collection, forms from other collections can be inserted as a shortcut to be used in a form, for example, as a base form.
