8.22 Release Notes

Release date: February 23, 2021

Query fields that can show a filtered set of entities

In the previous release, we added functionality to query fields to show results inside cells. Unfortunately certain page layout configurations caused a conflict with this update, so we had to turn the functionality off. We’ve now resolved the underlying issue, and the feature is rolling out to everyone this week. Sorry for the delay getting this hotly anticipated feature out to all of you!
In case you missed it, you can see all the details about what’s new here.

A note about our release notes

During the past few months, we’ve been working hard to break away from packing new features into single monthly updates, and instead putting them into more regular updates There are a few benefits to doing this—it means you get them sooner, but also if there are any issues with a particular feature, it’s easier for us to quickly isolate them and therefore minimize disruption to you.

However, some announcements related to feature releases will be found not at the top of the release note post as was previously the case, but within the thread. As these might be easier to miss, what we’ll also aim to do going forward is recap the most significant of these from the previous month in the top post. This means you might see the announcement for something after it’s already available.

As always, we’d love to get your feedback as to how this new process works for you.

Improvements

  • Webhooks beta UI now allows a webhook to specify batch delivery.
