10.05.2022

In WEBCON BPS, it is possible to personalize the appearance of the platform by changing the logo and color theme of the website. To be able to modify a color theme, a user must have appropriate privileges which are granted in WEBCON BPS Designer Studio. In the System configuration -> Global parameters -> Global privileges in the System administrators window, add the appropriate users.

From WEBCON BPS 2022.1.1, the lowest supported SQL Server is 2014. In the case of WEBCON BPS installations using the higher versions of SQL Server, WEBCON BPS databases work with the compatibility level set to SQL Server 2014 by default. Changing the compatibility level from SQL Server 2014 to SQL Server 2019 is possible, but you need to disable the TSQL_SCALAR_UDF_INLINING (Scalar UDF Inlining) option. This option is enabled by default when changing the compatibility level to SQL Server 2019.

The WEBCON BPS 2022 version introduces a new For each operator, which allows you to configure an action, operation, or automation for each element from the selected collection. The operator iterates over the collection elements, which can be an item list, any data source, attachments added to the workflow instance, and any collection defined as a business rule.

Setting the requiredness of form fields (or item list columns) depending on changes in values made in other fields is one of the most frequently used functionality of the WEBCON BPS system. In the previous version of the system, such a configuration required the developer to perform configuration activities in several system places. From version 2021.1.4.36, new built-in functions have been enhanced to WEBCON BPS. These functions are used to set the requiredness of fields on the form. They allow you to configure the form in terms of dynamic setting mandatory fields to be completed.

One of the basic features that allow you to create WEBCON BPS workflows is the possibility to task assignment. You can assign a task to a specific group, person or business entity. This article presents how to use of user groups when assigning tasks and shows exemplary solutions for task assignment in the multiple business entities environment. In each process you can grant privileges such as start new instances, access to all instances or administrator’s privileges. When configuring business entities, it is required to create as many groups as business entities existing in the respective process.

When using the "WEBCON BPS Outlook Add-In" on high-definition displays, problems may appear - especially when the Outlook window is shifted between high and low DPI monitors. There are problems with displaying the process instance form and as a result, the form disappears or is displayed outside the Outlook window. Currently, the only solution to this problem is to set the "Optimize for compatibility" option in the Outlook settings. 

In version 2020, the ability to present absences of employees in the form of the Gantt chart has been added to the Modern form. Until now, this form field was available only on the SharePoint form. One of the examples is displaying the employee's approved leaves in the absence process, but there are more possibilities - the process described below allows you to manage employees from the level of the production line.

The new version of WEBCON BPS mass e-mail notification system presents a great array of possibilities to adjust the contents and graphical solutions of mass e-mail notifications to the user’s current needs. Similar to the previous WEBCON BPS version the system administrator can define the day and time of the e-mail notification taking into account of the nature and working time of the organisation. Despite the possibility of defining the circumstances, e.g., group of addressees or redirecting the e-mail to the respective address, the previous version of WEBCON BPS 2021 mass e-mail notification system has been enriched with a vast range of new functionalities and visual solutions.
