Hey there 👋
Let's dive in.
Remember how painful it was to switch to preview mode in the editor when working with lots of data?
This was because the editor would re-fetch all your collections when switching to preview.
Good news is, it doesn't anymore.
If you still want to refresh the data, hit the "refresh" button next to edit/preview:
It's done! You can now copy paste complete workflows:
🔥 Pro tip 🔥
If you catch yourself copy pasting a workflow multiple times, consider creating a global workflow instead. It's a web development best practice that will help you maintain and scale your projects in the long term.
We also added new workflow triggers:
And set the appropriate default trigger to relevant elements so you don't have to waste time doing it. For example, the search element now has an "on change" workflow trigger by default.
Finally, we added a workflow action to get the user's location. When you use this action, the user will be invited to allow or block the request:
If they have allowed it, you will get their geographic coordinates which you can access in the result from the previous action in your workflow.
In the example below, we send the latitude and longitude info to a REST API:
In the new select element, you can now choose the "Free layout" type to customize how the options are displayed.
In the example below, we added an image and tags in addition to the names in the options dropdown:
For users who need to design charts with advanced options, we've added the "options" field in the "Advanced" mode of the charts elements.
This gives you access to all the options in the Charts.js library:
Finally, the team spent some time fixing bugs.
Alright, that's it for now!
We hope you love these updates. Don't hesitate to ask for more on the public roadmap.
