The introduction of translations across Self Service means that we now offer an important piece of functionality to our multinational customers. Running a project or service across multiple locations and engaging with people who speak different languages can be challenging. However, tools such as Dashworks, have this functionality built into their platform, and can alleviate much of the difficulty. The Tasks page in Evergreen Details (a central point for maintaining the data for your project) is now a cleaner, simpler interface, changing the way you interact with your project day-to-day. The statistics preview in Ring Scoping elevates this functionality to a new level, enabling you to model the impact of different changes to your project risk profile, before committing them.
Following the introduction of translations for some items in Evergreen Self Service in 5.6.4, the feature now includes task values in select task components and text components (DAS-27831). Translations allow you to specify the same piece of text in multiple languages when building a Self Service. Self Service can be used to reach a wide audience, and can provide or collect information, often in multiple languages for multinational organisations. Engagement is typically much higher when communicating with end users in their native language, and translations in Self Service enable this.
Custom fields can now be created with date values (DAS-27924, DAS-28194, DAS-28666, DAS-28699, DAS-28689). The advantage of this over text custom fields is that they can be sorted and filtered as dates in lists, using operators such as before and after. You can use date custom fields for date-value data in users, mailboxes, and apps, where that data is not already native in Dashworks, such as Last Break-Fix Incident, or Approved Date.
Select tasks (known in the legacy interface as dropdown or radiobutton tasks) can now be edited in Evergreen details for all object types (DAS-28484, DAS-28498). This completes the Tasks page, with all task types now editable. Select tasks allow a value to be configured against an object from a list pre-defined by the project administrator. For example, the value of an “AD Object Creation” task for a device may be set to Not Started, Started, Completed, or Failed. Task values can be set in Evergreen details, but also in bulk update, with an automation, via the API, or with the Dashworks file handler.
