Planet Crust releases Corteza 2023.3: Lots of front-end and UX changes make Corteza more flexible than ever.
Planet Crust, the driving force behind Corteza, is excited to announce the release of Corteza 2023.3
Changes include: Multiple Page Layouts, Conditional Fields, Drill-Down Charts, Block Magnification, Tabs and Navigation Buttons, Support for SQLServer and more.
Multiple Page Layouts
Create different page layouts that show different elements to different users depending on conditions, contexts, roles, devices, etc. Page layouts let you dynamically change page elements and content based on who is viewing what from where. Create any number and sequence of different page layouts to customize the end-user experience. In addition to changing the layout, you can also define their relationships and allow users to navigate between layouts.
Set conditions for how a user journey will progress based on the choice a user makes or new data inputs/changes. Conditional fields let you dynamically hide or show information based on the contents of the page so you can streamline your user interfaces and show only the most important information.
See the data lists beneath charts by clicking on the chart. Go further and filter lists directly based on the component of the chart you click on. Drill-down charts let you filter record lists based on your interaction with the chart.
Navigate Between Records
For power users, you can now move to a previous or to the next record without having to return to a record list.
Open Records and Other Blocks as Modals
For a better user experience, you can now open a Record as a modal in the same page as a Record List or open Page Blocks as large-sized modals.
Add URL buttons, Compose Page buttons or a drop-down menu for faster navigation and a better end-user experience. Navigation buttons allow you to define custom navigation inside your Low Code applications.
Create more efficient UIs with tabs. Tabs let you place several Page Blocks in the same UI space with easy toggling between Tabs to access the different Blocks.
Add icons to Pages in the menu to improve the look of your navigation.
Add manual or automatic interval-based refreshes of page blocks so that lists, charts and other blocks always remain up to date without the need for full page refreshes.
Bulk Editing of Records
End-users can now save time by bulk-editing multiple record values across any number of selected records.
Custom Login Screens
Customize your Corteza login screen by adding your own background and injecting CSS without the need to fiddle with the source templates.
Pre-Defined Record List Filters
Admins can create role-based Record List filters, allowing more flexibility as to who sees what and letting users quickly apply filters to Record Lists.
Add Images to User Profiles
Users can now add avatars or photos to their profiles for greater flexibility and customization options.
Copy, Paste and Clone Pages and Blocks
Design your dashboards faster than ever. You can now easily duplicate entire Pages by simply saving as new, then edit the new Page as you like. Or copy-and-paste Blocks on a Page for faster dashboard creation.
Mobile Geolocation Capture
Configurable geolocation capture replacing the previous scripting method for capturing geolocation from mobile devices. Set or prefill the current location while on a map for improved user experience and location accuracy.
Open Calendar Events in Modals
Configure a Calendar event source to open in a modal, a new tab or in the same tab so the user can see it without going away from the Calendar Block.
Disable Side Menu on Public Pages
Create more elegant end-user UIs by disabling the side menu on Public Pages in favor of the new navigation buttons.
Support for SQLServer
Support for Microsoft SQLServer as a production database.
We’ve added extended record duplicate detection configuration to support multi-value matching criteria and value-checking algorithms.
