CHANGELOG: Feb 17: Multi-panel navigation, Convert fields (Text, Dates), Integration API docs, 24 fixed bugs

:mount_fuji: Multi-panel navigation

After three months of development, many implemented tasks, and 37 fixed bugs, we are releasing multi-panel navigation. It should simplify information exploration and works best with references.

Here is the post with more details.

Next things we are considering to add:

  • Important fields concept. Important fields will be always visible in a panel.
  • An ability to search and open any entity in some panel.
  • Open View in a panel (Board, Table, etc).

We need your feedback to make them better! :ear:

:butterfly: Convert fields (within class)

We’re working on Fields conversion and today several more conversions are available within a single class:

  • Convert between Text, Email, URL, and Phone Fields
  • Convert Date and Date Range to Datetime and Datetime Range
  • Convert Formula Fields within class (Text and Date)

Convert is just an edit field from a user point of view.

Reports performance improved

You can also remove fields from reports data source to make update faster. With 20-50K entities a report may be slow to load and update. Most likely you don’t need all the fields, just remove them and report load time may improve dramatically.

Integration API docs

You can create custom Integrations now, here are the documentation that will guide you:

Improvements

  • Trash Bin works faster now (I know, it sounds weird, but it is true)

I do believe this needs some priority if I’m understanding correctly. I’m pretty sure that was some immediate feedback received when in experimental mode and is now covered here.

I love the multi-panel navigation, but as-is it is like a chair missing a leg. There is so much promise, but right now it gets in the way 80% of the time.

Feels strangely satisfying to see a bug fixed in many of these changelogs that I may have been responsible for reporting. :grin:

New features are nice but I can feel the polish on Fibery improving over these past few weeks
