Features & enhancements

Item Description
Enhancement Improve the error message displayed in the editor when an automation process refers to a missing table
  • The error message displayed by the editor when an automation process refers to a missing table has now been improved.
  • The error message is now clearer and it includes the automation process name.
  • The link to additional help now describes how to recover from the error and it refers to the correct article in the documentation.
Feature Table view shows header for column types Color, Progress, and Yes/No

Before this change, these three column types were treated as compact, so the header would not show up in a Table view. Now, header values will be shown. You can still update the Display Name value if you want to modify this behavior. This feature will begin rolling out to free users starting August 17 and others the following week.

For more information, see this Community post.

This was apparently due to the support ticket I submitted last week. Yay me, but also big props to Bryan from support and Jared from the dev team for looking into this very finicky issue and implementing a fix. This thing had been around for years, but I’ve never been able to reliably repro it.

Lately I’ve found the support system to be getting a lot better, hope other people have too!


Awesome! :raised_hands:

Thanks for reporting the issue, too! Props to the team for jumping on it.
