8.38 Release Notes

Release date: May 24, 2022

We released the following updates since 8.37:


What’s New in ShotGrid

  • Added a “What’s New” option to the User Menu that links to ShotGrid “What’s New” documentation. [SG-27060]

Introducing Input Validation Rules :tada::tada: :tada:

New Improvement: Input Validation Rules now support validating Number, Float, Percent, and Currency fields with the ability to apply an upper or lower limit or value range.

Input Validation Rules allow Admins to control data that goes into ShotGrid—like requiring naming conventions—thus mitigating confusion, errors, and discrepancies across data.

Validation Rules are configurable on fields, per project via the Configure Field… dialogue.

When enabled, you can configure:

  • A Description of the rule being applied
  • The error message that appears when violating a rule
  • Segments, which can include separators (dashes or underscores), and these include a maximum number of characters you expect for a segment
  • Requirements per segment (minimum and maximum lengths, case sensitivity, number, special characters, and more!)
  • Which Projects the rule should apply to

When applying a rule to a field for the first time, you have the ability to create a page with errors, where you can edit and correct records from there.

To learn more about Input Validation Rules, visit our documentation here. We hope you enjoy this new functionality! :partying_face:

Introducing Page Settings History :tada:

Now, Admins have access to information related to each iteration of a saved page as well as the ability to restore the page to a previously saved state—all within the Page Settings History panel!

To activate the panel, select Page Settings History… from the page dropdown menu.

From here, you can see the Page Settings History panel on your page.

And, you can perform actions like: restoring to a previously saved state, adding a name a description of changes, and saving a page as from the history.
