Feature Improvements

Edit & Delete Buttons Are Unaccessible from Record List If User Doesn't Have Permission
The "Edit" and "Delete" buttons will be grayed out on the record list view, and the alert will become visible on mouse hover if users do not have permission to edit or delete the record. 
Product Update
Pop-Up Message For View Settings Saved
When reordering or deleting views or graphs in app settings, you will now get a pop-up notification at the top of the page indicating the setting changes have been successfully saved.
Product Update
Display User Name for App Creator on the App Permissions Page
Now you can see the user name of the creator of an app on the "Permissions for App" page. This allows you to avoid potential permission mistakes. 
Product Update
Alert Message When You Lose App Management Permission
You will now get an alert message if you lose the app management permission after changing the permission settings. This prevents you from unintentionally removing your app management permission.
Product Update
Administrators have management permissions to all of the apps, so the message does not appear to them even if the app management permission is removed through this setting.
Eliminated Duplicate Buttons on Comment Pane
The "New Comment" notifications on the record comment pane were added in the April Kintone updates. The duplicated button that lead to the same comment has been removed.
