Quickly Identify Who the Assignee is
Within Process management, any record with an assignee now shows the assigned user name, making it easier to see who is given the task.
  Error Display Improvements
Error messages when attempting to delete fields referenced in settings, such as lookup and related records, are now displayed when attempting to delete fields rather than saving the form settings later. This lets you notice the error sooner and update the app more smoothly.
 Mobile Updates
