February Kintone product updates will take effect on February 14, 2021. 

In this video, Kintone Business Product Manager and sales consultant talk about the product updates for February 2021.

New Features

Temporarily Disable Plug-ins
Now you can disable plug-ins temporarily rather than removing it entirely. This is useful when some issues occur, and it is necessary to fix before you enable them again. 

Product Update
Update Options
Update options is a new tool that allows administrators to control how Kintone updates are applied. Using the options, administrators can choose when to roll out updates to members.

Product Update
Three options are available: 
Product Update
  1. Disable New Features
    To assess the impact of new feature releases on members, administrators can temporarily disable the new feature. Administrators can enable the features at any time by clearing the checkboxes.
    • Option (Defer Updates):
      By setting the default to disabled, new features will be disabled automatically when they are released. Administrators can take time to verify whether to enable the updates or not.
  2. Preview New Features
    Allows administrators to preview upcoming features. With this preview, administrators will be able to view and use new features before they're released. This will give them a clear picture of what's coming next.
  3. Trying New Features in Development
    Instead of just releasing a preview of features in development, we also want to include experiments to get feedback at a very early stage.

Product Update

Please note that these options are not available for all features. 
In the February updates, "Showing Record Created Date and Time in History Tab" listed below is available under "Disable New Features." We will release more features that can be applied to the Update Options.

Feature Improvements

Showing Record Created Date and Time in History Tab
With the "Track change history of records" turned on, using the History tab, you can see who created the record and when. You may no longer need the "Created by" and the "Created Datetime" fields.
Added the Record Last Updated Date to CSV File Export
Added the "Last Updated Date of Record" column to the exported CSV files. This makes it easier to find apps that have not been updated in a while.
Product Update
Added a Trigger to Update the Record Last Updated Date
Adding or updating records by importing files can now become a trigger to update the record's last updated date.
Update the record's last updated date by:
  • Adding or updating records manually
  • Adding or updating records by importing files (added in this update)
  • Adding or updating records through API 
Do not update the record's last updated date by:
  • Changing the status or assignee in Process Management
  • Posting comments
  • Deleting records
  • Adding or updating records on the Preview mode (test environment)
