A tale of creating awesomazing software

Some interesting new functionality arrives this June, like the SendGrid and HubSpot integrations and a very important new workflow task to call web services, but there is more and the usual maintenance stuff as we keep enhancing the project.

coreBOS now has an abstraction layer to send emails. Instead of the hardcoded phpmailer library, we can easily use any email service to send emails like SendGrid, MailChimp or sendinblue among others.

This month finds the whole team very busy on other projects so it turns out to be a slow month. Even so, coreBOS gets a set of fixes and enhancements while it proves to be more and more powerful as that backbone that permits us to implement stable and useful solutions for the companies using it.

Another month packed with features and developer enhancements among which the start of the new LDS design, easier docker support, and the incredible Decision Table are significant examples. Enjoy!

This month we start another long-running project to update and release all the closed code in coreboscrm and as a birthday present coreBOS gets three new modules and a whole bunch of new functionality while we keep up the constant evergreen updates and fixes. Enjoy!

In this post, I will try to explain the complexity of the workflow update field task. As with most things in programming business software it has many more exceptions than you expect.
