What’s new?

Print or save a Form submission as a pdf 🖨

We added the ability to save or print any individual Form as a pdf file. One way to print a form is to click on the print icon at the bottom right of the Form conversation in the Team Inbox. Another way is to print a form displayed in the activity log of a Contact Profile:

  • If you wish to save the form submission as a pdf file, make sure you click on the Destination field when the print window appears.
  • If no printer is connected to your computer, the default is to only save as a pdf.
  • If you wish to make edits to the file before printing, save it as a pdf first and edit the file with your preferred software, such as Adobe Acrobat.
  • At the moment, you can only print a single form submission.

Upgraded onboarding bot 🤖

The newly revamped bot guides new users by the stages of the onboarding process, compared to the old guide when it onboarded users by features. The main onboarding stages are now:

  1. Setup steps are the most important and should be set first,
  2. Operational steps should be completed after finishing the setup steps and include necessary actions to configure individual core features of erxes.
  3. Ongoing steps are actions you may need to complete and update multiple times depending on your use case.

Even though the new guide is more thorough, it has been categorized into manageable steps.

  • If you’re a language contributor for erxes, we tagged words (strings) on our Transifex project according to the context of where they appear in the UI. This will help translators and reviewers assign the most appropriate translation of the text. The tags are either by feature or page name. For example, words appearing in the Form edit/create slides are tagged feat-form, and words appearing on the Settings page are tagged with page-settings
