Geolocation tracking requires browser permission

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

When the geolocation tracking feature is enabled, a Map it link appears next to each requestor entry in the audit trail. When you click a link for the first time, the browser displays a notification asking whether you want to permit tracking. Make your yes/no selection in the prompt. Do not click "X" to close it, as doing so may render the session unresponsive. Refresh the browser if necessary and make your selection.

Geolocation tracking Map it links do not appear

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

If geolocation tracking is enabled, the first time you create a case in the first browser session, the Map it links do not appear next to the initial audit trail entries. When you submit the first flow action, the links appear next to all subsequent entries.

Context-specific documentation is not available in express mode

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

Help topics that are opened from express mode display content that is specific to Designer Studio.

If your system is dedicated to applications that are developed in express mode exclusively, and you do not need Designer Studio help topics, you can set the Online Help URL field on the System Settings landing page to: https://pdn.pega.com/sites/default/files/help_p7e/procomhelpmain.htm. Alternatively, you can view the contextual help system for Pega 7 Express in a separate browser tab.

Design-time limitations in express mode

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

Some limitations apply when you develop an enterprise application in express mode. At design time, some features are disabled or have limited options when you configure them in Designer Studio and switch to express mode. The use of these features does not restrict the run-time behavior of your application; however, you cannot change the configuration of these features unless you switch from express mode to Designer Studio.
