Easily configure the live and interactive map control

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

The AddressMap control has been enhanced with a text input field so that users can mark a location on a map.

For example, an insurance adjuster can indicate the location of the accident when filing a case. By selecting Allow marker repositioning to change address value and dragging the marker pin, the Text Input field is automatically updated.

Quickly attach a file to a case directly on a user form

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

In form configuration, the Attachment field type allows users to attach files directly to the form rather than performing an additional action.

For example, an insurance adjuster can take a photo of a vehicle and add the photo directly to the form. When the field type is configured as an attachment, at run time a new section is auto-generated with an attachment control that includes a read-only text input field and a browse button.

Enhanced form configuration reuse

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

In Case Designer you can reuse existing form fields when configuring forms. You can browse a set of existing fields and add them to the form by clicking an icon or by dragging and dropping. You can drill down through field levels to add embedded field levels. Fields are also searchable.

Quickly preview laptop, tablet, and phone views for Case Manager portals

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

You can use the Mobile preview item from the Operator menu to rapidly preview how the current portal is displayed in the default browser window size on laptops, tablets, and phones. You can view either portrait or landscape orientations for both tablets and phones. Because you do not need to use actual devices for testing, development is faster and easier.

For more information, see Mobile browser preview for laptops, tablets, and phones.

Guided tours can be started automatically

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

You can configure a guided tour to start automatically by using the pxGuidedTourAutoStart control. You can configure the control to start a tour the first time or every time a user visits the screen where the control is used.

For more information, see Automatically start guided tours.

Faster, contextual editing of case types

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Case Designer now includes a contextual property panel that helps you to quickly configure behavior in your case type. It supports case-wide properties, stage properties, and properties that are specific to an individual step.

When you click a stage or step in your case type, only relevant fields and controls are displayed, allowing you to stay focused and make decisions faster. Online help is also integrated with the property panel to give you just-in-time information.

For more information, see Contextual property panel in Case Designer.

Simplified creation of case types

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

A wizard is now available in the Case Type Explorer that walks you through the process of creating a case type. Helper text and default values gradually introduce you to stage-based case types to facilitate your transition from the wizard to Case Designer. To run the wizard, click Add a case type or select Add a child case type from the menu of an existing case type in the Case Type Explorer.

For more information about this wizard, see Case type wizard in the Case Type Explorer

Enhanced options for resolution stages

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When configuring a stage that resolves cases in Case Designer, you can now:

  • Create a new resolution status.
  • Select the status that is assigned to a case when it completes the last step in the stage.
  • Instruct your application to close all open assignments when a case is resolved.

At run time, the audit trail of a case includes entries that capture the time that the case was resolved and open assignments were closed. To access the configuration options for a resolution stage, click Resolve the case on the General tab of the contextual property panel in Case Designer.

For more information about configuring a resolution stage, see Options for a stage that resolves cases.

Design templates in Pega Express

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now use design templates to control the layout of form fields in Pega Express. Use the form builder Layouts tab to select a layout for the form and organize the fields in the layout regions.

For more information, see Adding a design template to a form in Pega Express.

Configure additional email accounts for Pulse notifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now configure individual email accounts for each application for which you want to send Pulse email notifications. For example, you can configure a specific email account to send Pulse notifications for an HR Services application, a Release Management application, and so on.

For more information, see Configuring Pulse notifications on additional email accounts
