Enhancements releasing prior to the general 2019.3 release

This section describes changes made during the 2019.3 release time frame that will release to the Production environment prior to the general 2019.3 release.

  • Change the display type of a field in a custom form

    Now you can change the display type of a field in a custom form.

    For example, if you have created a Checkboxes field, you can change it to a Dropdown field or a Radio Buttons field. These three field display types are interchangeable.

  • Create time off calendars and reports

    You can now see user’s time off for better planning and execution. You can also add new time off reports and calendars to your dashboards for a real-time view of user availability.

    You can now decide whether to allow the time off schedule of the Primary Assignee of a task to adjust the planned dates.

    Now, when you comment on a document, your update appears on the Updates tab both for the document and for the object where the document is attached.

    When you assign a user to a task or an issue, you can now see an in-line warning if the user selected has time off scheduled any time between the planned dates of the task or issue.

    We have created a new field type in the custom form builder called Typeahead. This field allows you to add fields that represent objects to your custom forms.
