Clarive 7.4.0 Release Notes

Release date: 25 March 2019

We're pleased to present our new release Clarive 7.4.0 with these new functionalities:

Topics grid revamp

The topics grid has been totally revamped. We have added a lot of functionality:

Topics grid tour

The first time that any user accesses the new topic grid, he will get a pop-up window with a tour through the grid functionality

Change status directly in the topic row

Now the user can easily change the status of any topic by clicking in the status balloon of the topic row and selecting the destination status

Quick and advanced filters

The way to filter the rows in the topic grid now is easier to use with the quick filters and/or the advance filters

Delivery tags

Every changeset or release will show the new Delivery Tags that will help you to understand the status of your depoyments

...and much more

Notify users of license expired

Whenever your Clarive product license is in an incorrect state (expired, exceeded # of users, etc.) you'll be notified in the interface

Slack in core

The slack plugin has been included in the product core and now you can easily define slack notifications in the project configuration

Admin Roles revamp

The role administration panel has been revamped to make administrator's life easier when assigning permissions to roles

Kanban mini / zoom out view

We have added a new mode for kanban boards to minify the size of the cards so you can view more items in one window without scrolling

Change rule data editors to YAML editors

All the rule operations that have some complex configuration have been modify to accept YAML format in the configuration box.

... with some help
