Generate documents in the background

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you generate system documentation by using the Document Application wizard (Designer Studio > Application > Tools > Document), the process now runs on a server and not on your local client system. This change not only generates your document more quickly, but also allows you to multi-task within Pega 7 while your document is generating in the background. When the generation is completed, download the document to your computer.

For more information, see:

Updating customized Application Document templates with server-side document generation

Screenshot generation still runs on local client

Link URLs to applications, requirements, and specifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

In addition to files, you can now attach URLs to applications, requirements, and specifications by using the Add/Edit Attachment modal dialog box in Pega 7. This change allows you to link directly to dynamic content in other URL-based systems rather than link to a static file of that content.

Grid cascading filtering

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

At run time, filtering a grid by column yields accurate results as filter criteria cascade down when filtering by column heading. The filter panel displays only those values that apply based on other filter criteria. Values are filtered on both value and range.

Internet Application Composer mashup code generation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Case types can be added to an external web page by using the mashup code created in Case Designer. The mashup code is custom HTML that can be added to Internet Application Composer (IAC) codes.

The Actions menu in Case Designer includes the ability to automatically generate IAC HTML from a case type. The HTML is then copied and pasted into the target web page through standard IAC options.

The generated code is optimized for responsive web sites and responsive Pega applications. See Generating a mashup code in case configuration.

Edit application elements at run time by using Live UI

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Live UI supports the addition, deletion, or reordering of UI elements within the run-time portal. Move elements by dragging and dropping within the tree. Elements can be added, deleted, and moved within or between dynamic layouts at run time by using Live UI.

Full-screen menus improve mobile navigation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

A new full-screen menu setting for enhanced mobile functionality provides a smooth and seamless mobile navigation experience. Previously, regular drop-down menus were difficult to navigate on a mobile device. Select Component styles > Menus > Menu Bar > Display "Show Menu" as full screen menu to enable and configure this setting in a Skin form.

Personalize your dashboard with widgets and templates

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

New personalized dashboards can be customized and shared by end users. Select a default template or create your own. Choose from one of several default widgets or design a configurable widget to provide core business metrics to your users. From the new Settings tab, you can select whether a section is a template or widget.

Improvements to the Document Application tool

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Application profile documents and application documents generated by the Document Application tool have been improved to present information in a more logical order based on how the application was built (for example, by case life-cycle management). Also, these types of documents now include all specifications linked with an implementation rule, presented in logical order under the implementation rule.

In addition, to help you more efficiently drive decisions by stakeholders, you can specify whether to include related built-on application layer assets in application profile documents and application documents. For specification documents, you can specify whether to include specifications from the built-on application layer.

For more information, see Document Application tool.

Device preview includes a configurable list of common mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Pega Express device preview displays your application in a simulated mobile device. By previewing your application, you can view the user experience on a desktop, tablet, or phone. You can select from a list of common devices or add devices to the list by editing Pega-DevicePreview-Device.

For more information, see Previewing an application on a mobile device.

Associate specifications on implementation rule forms

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now view, add, and delete the specifications that are associated with a rule on the new Specifications tab of most rule forms. The Specifications tab is available for almost all implementation rules, except for administrative and deprecated rule types. By associating specifications with the rules that implement them, you improve the end-to-end traceability of your specifications.

For more information, see Associating specifications on implementation rule forms.
