Dashworks Release Notes - Doris

Executive Summary

Self service has had a real boost in its functionality with the introduction of select tasks, making it possible to ask end users custom questions. This can be used to create questionnaires and user surveys or to validate existing data. Additionally date tasks are now available for mailbox and user objects in self service. Update category has been added to the growing list of bulk updates and automations. And the first glimpse of tasks functionality on the Details page has arrived in the form of Stages. Work has been done to improve the performance of dashboards. And finally there is a new placeholder available for use in email templates: custom fields.

Self-Service Select Tasks

self service select tasks-1

The latest component released for self service is select tasks. These are available for all object types. Both tasks and their values can be renamed within self service. Individual values can also be hidden. This really opens up the possible use cases for self service as select tasks can be used to gather a myriad of different types of information from end users. Where select tasks have dates, the date value will not be exposed in self service, this functionality will come in a later release.

Bulk update & Automation: Update Category

bulk update update category-1

The latest Bulk Update and Automation type is Update Category for Devices, Users, Applications and Mailboxes. This allows you to set or remove a project category for an object. Categories are user defined and are typically used as an additional way to organise objects in a project.

Evergreen Detail: Stages

evergreen details stages-1

Tasks are coming to the Evergreen details page. The first step of this is to show stages (which tasks are grouped into) and their readiness. The readiness of stages can also be overridden in this first release. Stages show a high level representation of the progress of objects through your project process.
