Operator presence record tracks disconnected status of operators

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The state attribute in the operator presence record now tracks the operator connection status of DISCONNECTED, in addition to tracking the operator connection status of ACTIVE, AWAY, or OFFLINE. Operators are disconnected if their browser crashes, if they close a browser session without logging out of the system, or if the network connection is down. The DISCONNECTED status helps prevent work from being routed to operators who are not online or not available.

When the operator restores the browser session or the network connection is restored, the Pega® Platform updates the operator connection status to ACTIVE.

For more information, see Tracking the online presence of operators.

Chart drilldown capabilities extended to dashboard widgets

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When the chart for a report is displayed in a dashboard widget, you now can click any part of the chart to drill down and view the subset of data for that part. This enhancement provides you with an accurate view of the data that determines the report results. Previously, this capability was provided only in the Report Viewer.

Designer Studio keyboard navigation

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Keyboard navigation adds speed and convenience to Designer Studio. To open the command palette and search within or select from a list of Designer Studio menu options, press Ctrl+Shift+P (Command+Shift+P on a Mac). For more information, see Navigate Designer Studio menus with the keyboard.

Enhanced autocomplete control with combo box functionality

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can now add combo box functionality to an autocomplete control. You enable this functionality on the Presentation tab of the control. In the combo box, search results that match the search criteria are displayed in a list that you can scroll through by clicking the down arrow.

For more information about how to configure an autocomplete control as a combo box, see Autocomplete Properties — Presentation tab.

Enhancements to exporting report results to Excel

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you export report results to Excel, the .xlsx file that the export process generates is smaller, opens faster, and no longer displays a security warning when you open it. Excel handles more of the formatting, and DateTime, Date, TimeOfDay, and Numeric properties are exported in a format that Excel recognizes. In addition, columns have sorting and filtering enabled by default.

These enhancements are enabled by default and provide improvements to performance and memory usage, especially with large data sets. You can disable this new default behavior by modifying the pyEnableExportToAdvancedExcelFormat when rule. For more information, see Disabling the default functionality for exporting reports to Excel.

Consistent authoring experience for sections

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Section references inside a dynamic layout have the same configuration options as a top-level section within a section (section include). Section references reduce the need for included sections, reduce the size of the document object model (DOM), and provide a more consistent authoring experience. You can specify a container format, set view and update privileges, and defer content load for sections within or outside of a dynamic layout. For more information see Harness and Section forms - Adding a section.

Refer to mixin settings in override CSS

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can refer to mixin settings inside an override CSS, which makes it easier to maintain and restyle your application. Properties for typography, border, background, and combination mixins can be referenced in an override CSS. For more information see Mixins in an override CSS.

Improved data security for BIX extracts for Pega Cloud customers

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Data security is improved for BIX extracts in the Pega Cloud. BIX extracts are now processed through the use of a HIPAA-compliant system. As a result of this improvement, the method for obtaining BIX extracts has changed. For more information, see Process for obtaining BIX extracts has changed for Pega Cloud customers.
