  • WorkUser
  • WorkManager

Nesting dynamic containers not supported

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

The Scratch Pad tool is no longer available

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

The Scratch Pad tool is no longer available. To add properties to a report from an end user portal, use the Data Explorer. The Data Explorer provides an efficient way to find a property or calculation to include as a column in a report.

For more information, see Data Explorer.

Attach Content control enhancements

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now use the Attach Content control in Pega® Platform to configure compression options that limit the size of files created on a mobile device. For example, you can choose from predefined settings to limit video duration or image size. These settings apply when the user records a new video or takes a new photo, but they do not apply to prerecorded media.

Also, when attaching content to a custom mobile app, users can now select any type of file from any source that is available in the device's native file picker component.

For more information, see Configuring file size options for the Attach content control.

Multi-Select list control

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can add a Multi-Select list control to a user form so that application users can select more than one value for a single field. These lists save time and ensure accuracy by supplying a list of valid values for an input field. You can source a Multi-Select list control from a data page, clipboard page, or report definition.

For more information, see Adding and configuring a Multi-Select list control.

Improve application loading time with preflight optimization

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Preflight optimization increases your application's initial display time by reducing unnecessary static content (JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheet files). To run the optimization process, click Designer Studio > User Interface > Application readiness > Preflight optimization.

For more information, see Preflight optimization.

Upgraded rich text editor

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Content that you copy from a word processor or spreadsheet and paste into the upgraded rich text editor keeps its original formatting. You can paste text and tables into a Pega® Platform application without losing formatting or styles.

For more information, see Rich text editor.
