New feature - Assigns in the import action event
Over the past weeks, we introduced all kinds of new features in the import event. You can process imported records by a callback action to use them in subsequent events for example. However, we wanted to go even one step further. Because what if you want to assign values to the whole import file before every record has been validated? Therefore, you can now use the assigns in the import event. You can use this to relate all import records to a file, client, user, etc. Here is how it works:

New feature - Advanced model property validations
Not long ago, we introduced the feature ‘validate by expression’. This feature made it possible to build custom validations to model properties based on an expression. However, we wanted to go a few steps further with this feature. Here is what we did:
- You can now build multiple expressions to validate a model property.
- The expressions are sortable to decide which must be executed first.
- Each expression can hold a custom message to preview to the end user when the given value is invalid.
- Validation errors (and their messages) can be caught/ fetched by an after_validation action. This feature can be very helpful for example in import events. When import lines aren’t imported (because some are invalid) you want to know why.

We made a learn article about this new feature. Soon we will provide you with howto tutorials in which we explain this feature even more.
New feature - Undo and redo in the web UI builder
For those of you who had big frustrations deleting components or sets of components accidentally in the web UI builder, your frustrations and pains are a thing of the past. With this release comes the powerful feature to undo and redo in the web UI builder. If you are accidentally mistaken (deleting the wrong component for example), this feature will help you out.
The new undo and redo feature in the web UI builder
The undo and redo buttons are placed at the bottom left (above the device switcher). The undo button reverts the effects of the latest action that was executed. If that was a delete action to a component, that means that the delete is reverted. The redo button reverts the effects of the undo action. In this case, it means that the delete will be executed again.
