New Features

Auto-Refresh On The Imported Files Page
The "Imported Files" page will now automatically refresh to show the current processing status of the imported file.
Product Updates
Retry Failed Imported File
You can now retry processing a failed import file using the "Retry Upload" button added to the "Imported Files" error message
Clicking the "Retry Upload" button will open the "Import from File" page directly. The settings you made the last time you imported the file will be automatically carried over if the file contains the same columns and is in the same order as the previously uploaded file. This eliminates the need to reconfigure the correspondence between the field and the column in the file, set the "Key to Bulk Update," and set the character encoding.

Feature Improvements

Removed a Restriction On Webhooks 
Webhooks can now be used even if Department Access Control is turned on. This allows users to use webhooks to integrate Kintone apps to third-party services while prohibiting access between departments.
Product Updates
If Department Access Control has been enabled before the update:
  • The "Allow sending Webhook" setting, which will also be added in the December updates, will be set to "Off"
  • Webhooks will not be enabled until the "Allow sending Webhook" setting is turned on 
Prohibit Using Webhooks 
You can now prohibit using webhooks through the "Allow sending Webhook" setting added in the Users & System Administration settings
Product Updates
The default setting is "On," which means using webhook is allowed. If you have enabled the "Department Access Control" setting before the update, this setting is "Off," and therefore using Webhooks is prohibited.
New Links To Help Topics
Relevant help links have been added to the pages and dialog boxes used when creating and using apps.
