Product Updates

Automations: Use Outputs of a Single Find in Other Actions

Automation’s Find Action has a new configuration option, allowing you to return a single record (whose values can be used in subsequent actions) or a list of multiple records.

Learn more

Automations: Merge Records Action

The record merge action seamlessly consolidates records, detecting duplicates and updating a single record with the latest information. You can automatically de-duplicate contact records, consolidate task updates and more.

Learn more

Automations: Clear / Append / Replace

Field updates in automations have been enhanced to support the update action type, allowing you to append, replace, or clear existing value(s) for specific fields.

Learn more

Show / Hide Tables

You can hide any table you don't access regularly or that you might only use to link other Tables together. Simply click on the Table dropdown and "Hide Table."

Learn more

Record Section Descriptions

Sections can now have their own descriptions with up to 750 characters of text to describe the fields they contain. Educate your users, provide instructions or describe the workflow supported by the section.

Learn more

View Descriptions

You have the option to include descriptions for Views, which can either appear as icons to the right of the View name or be displayed below the View name when clicked for increased visibility.

Learn more

Record Cover Image

Enhance the visual appeal of your data by adding cover images to records. You can select cover images from existing File and Images fields, making it easy to provide a visually engaging experience for your users as they navigate records.

New Formula Functions for Related Records

Formulas have been enhanced with functions to sort related records and return their values in a list. These new functions work with Linked Record, Sub-Item and Checklist fields and include RELATED_RECORD_SORT(), TOP() and GET_LIST().

Learn more

Formula: Time Tracking Log as a Nested Field

Use SmartSuite’s dot notation syntax to access Time Tracking Log field information, including reporting user, date and time value. Time Tracking Log fields now act like Linked Records, allowing you to retrieve information with all list-handling functions.

Learn more

Grid View: Editable Dependency Sub-fields

The Dependency Field’s Predecessor and Successor information can now be displayed independently in grid, allowing you to edit and interact with them in the same way you would a Linked Record.

Learn more

Make Enhancements

SmartSuite’s Make connector has been enhanced to add Advanced Settings to the Updated Records triggers, allowing you to specify field values (and optional changes) that will trigger the scenario. Also reference fields (like Linked Record) give you the option to use their text value or their SmartSuite Id, making it easier to configure advanced workflows.
