Improved data page performance

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Data pages that are sourced from report definitions now support server-side paging. This functionality optimizes the performance and memory of data pages, making them more efficient at retrieving large lists of data. In addition to getting page indicators at the top of a grid, you can sort and filter columns in a grid in conjunction with paging. If you want the system to use server-side pagination, you can also enable pagination from the Data page rule form.

For more information, see Defining data page access.

Email supports Microsoft Graph

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Email integration with Microsoft Office 365 now supports Microsoft Graph. By using Microsoft Graph, you can process inbound email more securely and avoid using less secure protocols, such as IMAP and POP3.

For more information, see Creating an email account.

Email listener enhancements for faster email processing

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Enhanced email listeners now process more emails in less time. To increase throughput, you can configure email listeners to process several emails simultaneously, instead of one at a time.

For more information, see Creating an email listener.

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

You can now aggregate data from multiple sources for faster and easier implementations. With this feature, you can load data pages more easily without using an activity or data transform.
