Release Notes – 2020 R1

Release Notes – 2020 R1

Our first release of 2020 introduces Flow Model version tracking, print-friendly Flows, and improved process map visibility. 

Have a look at the highlights of this release: 

Flow Model Versions

We’ve added the ability to view the Flow Model version number from when a Flow was started. You can also export specific Flow Model versions.

This is useful if you update a Flow model and users have already initiated it.

Flow Model version is displayed in:

  • The first Step of new flows 
  • A new column added to Report page 
  • A new column added to CSV report

Printer-Friendly Flows

We’ve improved the export Flow functionality and allow user to save it in a more printer friendly format. 

The new document now includes a comment section which will include all comments added by workflow users while the flow was in progress.

A common use-case is to include comments made on an expense request process, printed for archival purposes.

Process Map Visibility 

Flowingly Workflow Users can now open and review Process Maps from within Flowingly’s Runner.

Clicking on a Process Map from the Maps page will direct Flowingly users to a new page displaying the selected Process Map instead of opening the Flowingly Modeler.

This is especially useful for organizations using Flowingly as a repository for Process Maps. Staff can easily view relevant process maps without opening the Flowingly Modeler.

Additional Improvements

  • Short text customization
  • Customizable subject placeholder text
  • Introduced last updated date column in Library
  • Added scroll bar to form designer
  • Option list fields and Approval options now are deselectable
  • Small tweaks and bug fixes

Release Notes – 2019 R5

Release Notes – 2019 R5

Our fifth release of 2019 provides a more user-friendly Flowingly experience and significant improvements to reporting.

Here are the highlights of our December release: 

New Active Flow Experience

The Active Flow page is now split into Completed Steps (left panel) and Current Steps (right panel). This gives users the ability to see all pending steps assigned to them and/or others while simultaneously reviewing previously completed steps.

Report Module Improvements

The Report module has seen a major upgrade in functionality. Our improved filter system allows users to more clearly add filters or remove all filters at once. Report users will also notice a slicker experience as Flow IDs now directly link to corresponding flows. 

We’ve removed Step Data information from the UI for a smoother experience. Meanwhile, we’ve added new flow metadata which provides greater insight into flow performance and helps users identify active issues and look for ongoing trends.

Users can now download a CSV file, compatible with common BI tools. The CSV format also means you can now download large data sets much faster, without previous size and speed restrictions.

Additional Improvements

  • Improvements to Start Flows page and experience 
  • Ability to delegate work assigned to a single member team 
  • Ability to see the list of users CC’d on a Flow in the History log 
  • Improvements to validation around Intranet Forms
  • Navigation panel and icons have undergone a makeover to free up more space
  • Small tweaks and bug fixes

Release Notes – 2019 R4

Release Notes – 2019 R4

In our fourth release of 2019, we’ve worked to make Flowingly even more powerful and easier to use. We’ve been hard at work adding and improving features that we know you’ll love.

If you haven’t seen the latest features and performance improvements, here are the highlights of our September release: 

 

SharePoint Integration

Flowingly forms embedded on SharePoint can now integrate with your single sign on (SSO) to prepopulate fields with a user’s details. This means you can now add a leave request or approval form to your intranet and cut down on hours of tedious form filling. We have even more functionality for SharePoint coming up, and our SSO support will be a game changer.

New Modeler Graphics

Our flow modeler now has a shiny new look. It’s an even cleaner experience to design and build your flows.

Full Special Character Support

We’ve extended special character support to all user-editable text fields. Flowingly can handle everything from a mu to a macron.

Improved Bulk Import

Bulk import now has additional functionality and control for onboarding large numbers of users.

Bug Fixes

As always, we’ve been working hard to iron out any issues and adding small improvements here and there.

Release Notes – 2019 R1

With the new year comes new releases and we’re excited to announce some new features in Flowingly.

There are some very exciting features in this release, with the Flow Search and Pools features leading the way. These new modules are already proving very popular.

In case you haven’t seen the latest features and performance improvements, here are the highlights of our February release:

Flow Search

You can now search for a Flow by FlowID or subject text from anywhere in the application. This provides fast access to flows you want to work on.
