  • add workflow metavariable inventory details with table and list format
  • implement Workflow 'was' condition

Workflow was condition

  • permit creating system/manual workflows which are launched by some external event. These events can basically be triggered in two ways, one is with a link or button from inside the application (see the Business Actions and Mass Edit 1x1 videos from the previous post), the other is using the new web service endpoint ExecuteWokflow which accepts a workflow ID and a list of application crmids upon which the workflow should be evaluated and launched if necessary
  • we add a "purpose" description field to the workflows so that you can write a small explanation of what this workflow is for
  • FieldDependency

As far as I know this is the first month that someone actually makes more commits than me in the project! Thanks Luke
  • change coreBOS CSS to follow LDS naming convention
  • add default support for cbTranslation in getTranslatedString. Now, after searching for the string in the language files, if we can't find a translation we will ask the coreBOS translation module. This way we leverage the work and speed of the language files and also get the power of the new translation module for new and custom fields

  • web service Validate information endpoint: ValidateInformation where you can send an array of field values and a module type to get the result of applying all the validations defined in the application on the fields
