Forms Updates
Process approvers can approve tasks with buttons embedded in task emails.

Process administrators now have more control over business process instances and can reopen completed and terminated instances and update file upload variables for in-progress instances. Forms Designer has more out-of-the-box JavaScript support that requires no coding, dynamic validation of field values and search and pagination in form tables and collections.

Audit Trail Updates
Forms Professional now includes Starter Auditing features which track user and process activities taking place through Laserfiche Forms. This helps organizations to meet compliance requirements when using forms to collect sensitive data. Administrators can now create a report on actions audited in Laserfiche Forms from the Audit Trail reporting page.Laserfiche API

The Laserfiche Cloud 2022.2 release is now available!

New Team Developer Role: Build Processes Securely
Now users with the Team Developer role who have Process Automation access can now develop within a team’s projects. Previously, users would need an account-wide Process Automation Developer role in order to do so. This update lets users develop within a project without being able to see Global items. This removes a global access hurdle and creates more opportunity for local control and independence to create better processes more securely.

Global Resource Sharing Update: Gives Global Control and Visibility of Processes
A project listing page is now available under the Teams section in Process Automation which allows Process Administrators to manage Global resources that projects may have access to as well as see all projects that are within their Laserfiche system.

Layout Designer Improvements: Design More Customized Forms
More methods have been added to the LFForm object to allow changing field settings, form settings, field rules and adding rows and sets to tables and collections. Additionally, two events have been added for lookup trigger and lookup done.
When there are fields on the form with duplicate names, sometimes it is not clear which field is associated with a field ID or variable name. Now when you are in the rules tab, the info tag for each field appears.

AccountID Added to Laserfiche URLs for a Smoother User Experience
Laserfiche URLs created from tasks in business processes or from the Copy URL option in the repository now include the account ID. That means when a Laserfiche user clicks these URLs, the account number auto-populates on the Laserfiche sign-in page, removing friction from the user experience.

New Solution Templates Now Available
New solution templates include a sample integration with Google Cloud’s Sentiment Analysis API, a network access request and an early identification of mental illness process. To learn more about these new features, check out the feature release summary video.
