The Scratch Pad tool is no longer available. To add properties to a report from an end user portal, use the Data Explorer. The Data Explorer provides an efficient way to find a property or calculation to include as a column in a report.
You can now use the Attach Content control in Pega® Platform to configure compression options that limit the size of files created on a mobile device. For example, you can choose from predefined settings to limit video duration or image size. These settings apply when the user records a new video or takes a new photo, but they do not apply to prerecorded media.
Also, when attaching content to a custom mobile app, users can now select any type of file from any source that is available in the device's native file picker component.
You can add a Multi-Select list control to a user form so that application users can select more than one value for a single field. These lists save time and ensure accuracy by supplying a list of valid values for an input field. You can source a Multi-Select list control from a data page, clipboard page, or report definition.
Improve application loading time with preflight optimization
Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1
Content that you copy from a word processor or spreadsheet and paste into the upgraded rich text editor keeps its original formatting. You can paste text and tables into a Pega® Platform application without losing formatting or styles.
The DateTime (calendar) control has been updated. You can now show week numbers on the calendar, disable weekends so that users cannot select them as working days, show minutes in intervals, and use spinners to facilitate navigating between months and years. These design-time options make it easier for users to select valid dates and times in your applications.
You can now change your Pega® Platform password from a mobile device. After your password expires and you try to log in to a custom mobile app, Pega Mobile Client lets you define a new password and verifies it against active password policies.
You can now approve and reject Pega® Platform cases from your mobile device without opening a custom mobile app. Push notifications that you receive on a mobile device now display buttons that allow you to advance a case.
Post Pulse messages to cases from a push notification screen
Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1
If your mobile device uses Android 7.0 or later, or iOS 9.0 or later, you can now respond to Pulse messages in Pega® Platform cases without opening a custom mobile app. Push notifications received on a mobile device now display a Reply button so that you can respond immediately to the notification.
Grid (table) layouts optimized for mobile support conditional visibility layout, row, and cell content. You can configure visibility as a client-run expression for use offline, or use a when rule or server-run expressions for desktop and mobile applications. Conditional visibility allows applications to use the template-based rendering. The UI Gallery includes an example of such a grid.
