New feature - Layouts and partials

If there's something we can all agree on, it's that repetition is inefficient and error prone. Let me repeat that, repetition is ineccifient and erorr prone... It is for this reason that we introduced layouts and partials to the UI builder.

At the top left you'll find a new tab 'Partials'. The header and footer are included in the layout.


Let's say you want to have the same menu bar and footer on each of your pages. You can now create layouts that contain said menu bar and footer and then have the contents of each page rendered inside those layouts.


Conversely, it could be that you created a great looking social media share bar and want to include it in multiple pages. Adding and maintaining that bar for each of those pages can be cumbersome. What if you wanted to change the colour of one of the buttons for each of those bars? Now, you can create a partial for that bar and simply include that partial every time you want your page to render your social media bar.

Talk about efficiency!

Update - Callback actions for imports

It is now possible to pass your imported records to the callback actions for import events. This new piece of flexibility should be enough to cover all your import-ant needs *wink*

You'll find the callback action option at the bottom of an import event

This feature enables you to use the imported records in subsequent events.

Think of assigning all the imported records to a certain "Relation" model for instance. Or you could just simply email the user once the event has finished importing all records. 

Simply enable a callback action for your import event and check the "process imported records" checkbox. The batch action you assign here, will be executed for each imported record after the import has imported all records.

Update - "Run manually" button

Don't panic when you can no longer find the "run manually" button for actions. It was moved to the header of the action pane.

The button is moved to the header. Hooray!

Removing the need of having to open the edit screen first. 

"A mouseclick saved is a mouseclick earned" or well... You get the idea.
