Application Flow Viewer

You can now see a graphical view of your application which shows the flow between states and the actions that progress the application between the states.

This provides an overview of the state flow that is configured in the application actions’ state availability and task exit-state configurations within the action editor. You can use the hyperlinks on the actions to open the editor for the action.

Multi-select picklist conditions

You can now specify conditions based on a user's selections from a picklist.

Create a text list in your application data and in the Restrictions properties provide a set of predefined values. In a conditional flow or a calculation task conditional assignment expression, name this list and select one of the following operations. Then select the relevant predefined values to check against.

4 new conditional expressions can be used:

  • contains any of
  • contains at least
  • contains only
  • contains none of

This will allow designers to simplify their process design by using these expressions directly in conditional flows or assignments.

  • Fetch data from a company data service or perform a calculation as input to the form that the user submits.
  • Have the user provide some initial input before fetching and calculating data. The user then completes and submits the form.
