Support for statuses and a logical expression for empty/blank/null cells

Admins and Producers - we’ve added support for statuses and a logical expression for empty/blank/null cells!

We would love to hear about how you are using Calculated Fields—please share by posting about it in our community and spread the :nerd_face::heart:! We hope you enjoy these final improvements to our Calculated Field functionality!

User Menu Customization - Internal Resources

Admins and Producers - you can now customize the User Menu to include Internal Resources! :raised_hands:

Internal Resources are a type of Action Menu Item (AMI) which allows for scalability:

  • Admins can manage Internal Resources from one centralized place: the Action Menu Item page.
  • With permission controls, Admins can restrict internal resources to specified permission groups.
  • Filtering, grouping, and sorting capabilities can be applied to the Action Menu Item page to help Admins view information in an organized way.
  • Additional fields can be created on Action Menu Items to help track more meta-data when necessary.

Check out this short workflow video and learn how Internal Resources are easy for Admins to add and update:
