Release Date: May 6, 2017
Our May release contains the following Custom Fields enhancements: search and filtering support for Text Custom Fields, color indicators on Pick List Custom Fields, and the introduction of Date custom fields. API users will find several improvements in timesheet management via API and several other areas.
- NEW: Administrators can now set colors for Pick List Custom Fields on the Custom Fields settings page. The selected colors will show wherever Custom Fields are exposed: on the Edit Panel, in Personal Columns Display, in Analytics Reports, on Dashboards, in Resource Workload Report, and on My Work Tab.
To display the Custom Field colors on a Dashboard Donut widget chart, set the Ring Emphasis to your color-coded custom field and select the Default Color Palette.
- NEW: On the Custom Fields Settings page, Administrators can now select Date as a type when creating a new custom field. When members set or update a Date custom field, they can pick the date from the calendar pop-up. Date field entries are visible in columns, exports, and reports.
- NEW: The Custom Status filter now has options for Text and Date custom fields.
If a custom field used in a saved Status Filter gets deleted, you will see a warning that the rule is invalid.
- NEW: Text Custom Fields are now one of the available Search options.
