Logic-based assignment routing

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can now define business logic that controls when and by whom an assignment is processed in a case. By routing assignments to a specific user or group of users, you can help ensure that cases are resolved faster.

For more information, see Logic-based assignment routing.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) support for Pega 7 applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can now use Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to automate repetitive and unattended back-office activities directly from your Pega 7 application. By using RPA with your application, you can batch process large volumes of cases faster and with fewer errors compared with manual case processing. You configure the automations in Pega Robotics Automation Studio.

For example, when an automobile insurance claim is submitted, an automation can analyze the submitted information, look up and verify policy holder information, and update web and desktop applications with case information.

Create case and Wait smart shapes available in Case Designer

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

View attachments inline

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

You can now view thumbnails of PDF file and image attachments and icons of video attachments in Pulse, cases, and other areas of the application that allow you to attach files. Thumbnails provide a preview of your attachments inline. You can also play video attachments and expand the thumbnails of PDF file and image attachments to view them in readable formats.

For more information, see Inline preview of attachments.

Edit icons and titles for messages in the activity feed

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

You can now edit the icons and titles of messages that are displayed in the activity feed for Pulse by customizing the pxFeed Pulse gadget. For example, to inform other users of an application about important Twitter updates that are related to the organization, you can create a message that displays a Twitter icon and a title of Twitter updates.

For more information, see Pulse enhancements for social collaboration.

Activity feed displays application messages

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The activity feed for Pulse now displays messages within the context of the application of the logged-in user. If a user posts messages within the context of the application, all the users of the application can view the messages in their activity feed. Users can select the filter for application messages to view only these messages. For example, application messages can be used for release announcements.
