What’s new on the Onedot platform.


20th MARCH  2019

Smarter Focus Handling: Some dialogs such as the Allowed Values dialog did not behave very friendly in terms of setting the input focus when you need to type something. Now they behave like good citizens again, accepting your input from the start without having to click into the input text field anymore

Fixed Crash adding Row/Column: A deadly combination of creating a new column on a dataset after adding the new row previously led to a full stop of the application, requiring a refresh of the browser. Thankfully, the patient has been cured and survives such conditions without any problems.

More Beautiful Tooltips: The visual design of any tooltips, e.g. the one appearing on the Download button when attempting to download a dataset without prior saving, is now better aligned with the other parts of the application.

Fixed Behaviour on Enter: The behaviour when pressing Enter after editing a cell has been corrected. Sometimes, in combination with hidden columns, the focus would be set on the wrong cell one line down. Not anymore, you can proceed editing with full speed.

Tooltip for large Values in Dataset View: We have added a tooltip in case the cell value is not fully visible in a dataset cell, which is frequently the case for product descriptions and other free text attributes. Smoothly hover on the cell in question, and a tooltip is shown after a short delay, showing the entire cell value at once.

Loading Visualisation: The animation shown while loading a dataset is now way prettier than before on certain browsers. Problems related to clipped fonts and animated dots are a thing of the past.

Fixed Dictionary Validation: Detection of chains in dictionaries is working better even for very non-obvious cases. The dictionary view  shows any chains, duplicates and forks as one would expect.

Chains are usually a problem when repeatedly applying a dictionary on the same dataset again, causing the results to change each time, which is not wanted in all cases.

20th FEBRUARY  2019

Correct Alignment of Decimal Numbers: Decimal numbers such as quantities, e.g. 1.23 cm, are correctly displayed with right alignment, also taking the decimal point into account. This is how it should be and we are very happy with that feature.

Fixed Header Comment Action: The action in the dataset view to click on a column header comment has been fixed and works again as expected.

Sorting/Filter Settings tracked per User: Any sorting and filter settings are now separately tracked for each user. Collaborative editing or feedback on larger datasets has become a reality! On top of that, this also simplifies setting up demo cases which are guaranteed to look how the should look like, regardless of the browser you take.

Semantics of Sorting/Filtering: Changes to the dataset do not cause the dataset view to behave erratically. When you edit a cell which would be filtered away, it still stays visible, yielding a more stable editing experience. Same goes for sorting.

Better Editing Performance: We made editing performance of the dataset view better, in particular in combination with hierarchical allowed values. Some third-party components were upgraded, the functionality of keeping track of allowed values and suggestions enhanced, making editing larger datasets a blast. Enjoy!

6th FEBRUARY  2019

Double-Click to Fill Value: Double-clicking at the light-blue square on the bottom right corner of a cell selection will automatically fill the value of the selection to the cells in the column, right until existing cell values are encountered. This feature reminds us a lot of: Excel.

Quick Renaming of Files, Folders and Tasks: The details pane of files, folders and feedback tasks now allow renaming in-place. Double-click the name, type the new name, done. Works with descriptions and other text properties.

Improved Performance editing Allowed Values: Bulked up the browser cache and avoiding unnecessary computations for luxurious datasets of 50K rows or more with associated category hierarchies of up to 10K categories. Plus, we reliably fill hierarchical allowed values, even with inconsistent or missing existing cell values.

Improved Allowed Values Drop-Down: The drop-down showing suggestions for allowed values now even works if there are existing, invalid cell values. It was painful to work without suggestions shown in this case, making it hard to fix invalid cell values. And to make it even better,  the sort order of the suggestions uses now standard alpha-numeric sorting.

13th FEBRUARY  2019

Alignment of Quantities: Values of attributes like Width, Height and others that show quantities such as 1.25 cm are now rendered right-aligned in the dataset view. They also correctly take the decimal separator into account, which is a nifty feature to have.

Fixed Sorting of Folders: Storing the folder sort order has been improved. Previously, it did not survive a refresh in the browser, now it stays around even after the refresh. Good to know and should be used accordingly.

Improved Allowed Values Dialog: The dialog to set allowed values has been overhauled. We now show any values as tags, making it easier to edit more complex values including special characters. As an example, it is now also possible to use allowed values containing commas and other characters.

Row Numbers: The dataset view now shows row numbers for each row in a dataset. This helps to better identify a specific row and also allows you to better see your progress when giving feedback.

Note that row numbers behave slightly different than in Excel. When filtering and sorting rows in a dataset, row numbers will change, while Excel keeps them stable.
