New Features

Stay Up to Date with Desktop Notifications on Kintone

Kintone now supports desktop notifications. If you have a Kintone tab open in your web browser and receive a "To me" notification, it will appear on your desktop even if you're browsing pages other than Kintone.

This feature helps you to quickly identify essential notifications and respond to them promptly without any delays. With this new feature, you can now notice Kintone notifications right away and take necessary actions even while working on something other than Kintone.  


How to Start Receiving Desktop Notifications:

  1. Go to Personal Settings.
  2. Enable desktop Notifications.



  • Notifications must be allowed to receive notifications in the web browser and operating system settings.
  •  Currently, this feature is only available on Google Chrome for Windows and macOS and Microsoft Edge for Windows.

Feature Improvements

Displaying Group and Table Names in Field Selection

This latest update now displays the table name or group each field belongs to when selecting fields in the app settings. With this improvement, users can quickly find the necessary fields and easily set up their apps.


Improved Error Messaging for "Prohibit Duplicate Values" Setting 

When you want to prevent users from entering the same data in one or more records using an app's "Prohibit duplicate values" setting, you may encounter an issue where the setting cannot be enabled due to duplicate values. When this happens, you'll receive an error message indicating that the setting cannot be enabled.
However, the latest update brings an improvement to this error message. The new error message will display the name of the field causing the error, helping you quickly identify and resolve the issue. This update will make your data management more efficient and error-free.



Other Updates

Enhanced Visibility Feature Added to Settings Tab in App Settings

An improved visibility feature has been added to the Settings tab in App Settings. This update aims to improve visibility by increasing the contrast of lines, buttons, and forms. Additionally, this enhancement will be applied to other pages to ensure that users can navigate the app easily.


This update was initially planned for the January 2024 updates but has been rescheduled for the March 2024 updates.
