What's new

April 27, 2023 ✨

Lunch? Let me check my calendar.

  • The new calendar view lets you work with your data as events on a calendar.

  • When you create a calendar view from an existing view, you can create new fields or choose existing fields to use for the record's display label (a short text field) and start and end dates (timestamp fields).

  • Each event is a record. Just double-click a date to create a new record on that date, or click a date and drag across dates to create a multi-day event. To edit a record, just double-click an event or drag or resize the event to set the start and end dates.

  • To work with records as a list, just click Show records button Show Records, then click a record to go to it on the calendar or double-click to edit it. By default, the Only unscheduled option is turned on, but you can turn it off to show all records.

  • Use the familiar controls to filter and color-code events.

Set the value of more field types dynamically

  • In form and list-detail views, you can now dynamically set the value of these additional field types: date, time, timestamp, phone, user, drop-down, single choice, and checkboxes.

  • Just click Action button, then Value, and set Action to Set the value. Next, enter or choose a value for the field and set one or more conditions based on other fields.

  • For other types of fields (except attachment fields), you can now choose to use the field conditions editor, or the calculation editor as before.

To develop, or not to develop: that is the for list views

  • We're continuing to make the Developer mode experience more consistent for team managers when it's turned off and to limit team members to viewing and editing data. In this release, the list view now doesn't allow columns to be added, deleted, or modified. You can only add, delete, and modify records, use quick filters, and add and archive groups.

A better list-detail view—it's in the cards

  • In list-detail views, the cards in the list area now make better use of space to display useful information from each record.

  • Team managers can choose up to three card labels, each displaying data from different field.

When you really don't want it anymore

  • The behavior has changed when deleting the view that was automatically created at the time you migrated a table from a Claris Pro app to Claris Studio. By default, this view's name ended with "from Claris Pro."

  • Previously, deleting that view did nothing more than delete the view. Now, that view and the migrated data itself are deleted. This means that the migrated data will also be unavailable to Claris Pro apps.

  • This action can't be undone, so use with caution.

Get the kind of calculation result you want

  • In calculation fields, you can now specify the format of the result. This enables you to write simpler calculations that reference date, time, and timestamp fields or date and time functions (like NOW and TODAY).

  • For example, in a calculation field that adds a week to the value in the Tasks.Date field (Tasks.Date + 7), for Format, you can choose Date so that the calculation field displays the result as a date.

  • The default format, Automatic, attempts to choose the best format. But if it doesn't, you can choose Number, Boolean, Text, Date, Time, or Date and Time.

  • For now, the Format option is supported only in spreadsheet views.
