Features
Create an app with Visual Builder

With this release, when you create an app whether you choose Start from scratch or Build from a template, you’ll go directly into Visual Builder to add or modify tables and fields, then save your new app. You’ll also have the option to take a tour to guide you through app building.

Field properties: view sample data

Maintaining your apps just got a little easier now that you can preview the data a field contains from the Field Properties page. Click the sample data link to see the value from the first record in the table.

Enhancements
Increased limits for Kanban reports

Accomplish even more with your Kanban reports, now that you can include up to 15 columns with up to 100 cards each.

Note: Leveraging this many cards or columns requires web browsers to have sufficient performance with features such as drag & drop. Chrome and Firefox will perform the best.

Improved performance for the user picker in built-in fields

We’ve improved the performance of the user picker used in the built-in record owner and last modified fields used in areas such as filtering records on advanced find, permission building, and while creating a report.

Updated error messages

We’ve updated the styling and content for a number of error messages, including certain report, table, and app-level error messages you might encounter.

Updated styling for Settings icon

We’ve update the styling for the Settings icon so it’s more consistent visually with other areas of the product; the background is now white instead of blue.

Improved advanced search

Advanced search on the My apps page now only returns apps in your realm, even if apps have the Everyone on the Internet role.
