Quick Tips to Help You Create Formulas

You can now quickly see "How to create a formula" and "Available functions" in the dialogue where you set up a formula, the "Calculated" field, and the "Text" field. The information is helpful especially if you are learning to write formulas.



Improved Error Messages for Formulas
An error message in formulas has been improved to make the mistakes clear to users. When you use a field that does not exist in the app for the formula, the error message indicates the missing field using the field code.
You can quickly correct any errors that may have occurred due to typos in the field code.
Improved Page Transition after Deleting Apps in a Space
The page displayed after you delete an app in Space through the Space portal has been changed from the Portal to the Space Portal. You will save time organizing apps in your Space.
Example: To organize apps in a Space
Hassle-free File Selection for Importing Plug-ins
When importing a plugin in Kintone System Administration, the file selection popup now shows only the ZIP file format, reducing the chance of making mistakes in selecting other file formats.

Improved Guest Management List
On the list of guest users in Kintone System Administration, the table rows are now highlighted on mouse-over. When you delete a guest user, it prevents you from making the mistake of deleting the wrong guest user.
