Dashworks Release Notes 5.4.1

Dashworks Release Notes - Pulsar

Executive Summary

Dashworks 5.4.1 introduces the first interactive element on the Evergreen Details pages: Custom Fields. Values for an object's Custom Fields can now be added, deleted and updated in Evergreen Details. This creates a new pattern for the way an object's data is modified via the Evergreen UI, which will be repeated across other, similar use cases. In application lists, further device filters have been added for OS, hardware and custom fields, giving richer insights into the app distribution across your estate. Lastly, email templates have 2 new variables for task names and task values that open up a potentially very large number of new data points for use in your end user emails.

Evergreen Details Custom Fields


Custom field values can now be added, deleted and edited on the Evergreen Details page. This applies to applications, devices, users and mailboxes. Custom fields sit outside the projects and are used to store attributes of an object that aren't available in Dashworks' native fields. Also in Evergreen Details, additional counters have been added to some of the menu items.

Application List: More Device Filters


3 new categories of device filters have been added to the applications list: Device Custom Fields, Device Operating System and Device Hardware. These can be used to filter applications on based on the devices they are associated to.

Email Placeholders for Alternate Task Names & Values


Email Templates have two new place holders available: {$TaskValueXX} and {$TaskNameXX}. These allow you to add task names and values to end user emails, for tasks other than the one triggering the email to be sent. This gives you access to the full range of information about the object in this project to include in the text of your email.
