  • Tabs were eliminated.
  • All fields are located on a single panel and are grouped by their function.
  • The most commonly used fields appear at the top of the panel and are clearly visible.
  • Field and functionality of interest to advanced users are organized into an expandable Advanced section positioned at the bottom of the panel.
  • Business-friendly labels and headings, and instructional text make it easier for non-technical users to quickly understand the meaning and purpose of each field.

At runtime, users search on the key field and any additional specified search fields. The user interface automatically refreshes, enabling dynamic results when selecting a search field.

Service level available for flows

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Service level agreements can now be associated with individual flows. This feature is especially useful for establishing goals and deadlines for flows within a stage-based process. The setting is located on the flow record Process tab.

Track the geolocation of audit trail actions

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The geolocation tracking feature allows you to capture latitude and longitude information each time a requestor entry is recorded in the audit trail. A Map it link appears in the Location column on the Audit tab's History tab. Clicking the link renders a Google Map that displays the location based on the coordinates.

To enable this feature, copy the standard when rule pyGeolocationTrackingIsEnabled to your application. You can customize the "default always true" condition to suit your requirements. For example, you can set up a privilege or role that tracks only mobile users rather than all users.

When you use Application Express to create a new application built on a standard Pega application (such as PegaRULES or PegaDM), the system enables geolocation tracking for all case types. You can disable or enable tracking at the case type level using the Geolocation tracking setting on the Case Designer Details tab.

To enable "Map it" functionality, create a dynamic system setting that contains your Google Map API license key.

Using parameters to direct flow

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

You can use a parameter rather than a stage name to direct the flow in the Change Stage Smart Shape. Select the Other option in the Select a stage field to specify the parameter.

A single starting flow creates all ad hoc cases

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

An operator can uniformly create ad hoc cases in the My Cases area on the Case Manager portal, on user forms, and in Pega Pulse by way of the standard starting flow pySimpleCaseWorkFlow. Operators can define the routing of the case and an overall SLA when creating the case.

The default action created by the ad hoc flow contains a dashboard that also enables operators to quickly define tasks and add attachments.

Convert cases to case types using the Configure for Reuse feature

An operator can use the Configure for Reuse feature available on the ad hoc dashboard and on the ad hoc user forms to convert an ad hoc case into a case type that can be reused throughout the organization.
