The list of shared users can be displayed on the grid for each submission by clicking ‘show/hide fields’ and selecting the ‘shared users’ column. The shared users can also be included in exports to Excel for reporting.
Visibility conditions support ‘is not’ logic
The visibility logic in Form Builder has been updated to allow users to set an ‘is not’ condition.
For example, if you need a specific workflow for your UK office you can set up branching logic for all other countries by setting a section to appear when the country selected is not the UK.
Some work behind the scenes to make the application faster
We enhanced the load time of the reports and submissions pages.
As of 13 July 2021, the German tax authority (BZST) is updating its reporting system. Reporting will be temporarily disabled and return on 20 July 2021 when they bring it back online. Omnitrack has been updated to use the new reporting schema from this date.
The reporting schema for Belgium has also been updated to reflect the latest version released for reporting in Belgium.
Fixed various issues with confirmation checkbox fields
Typing into the field causing the cursor to jump
Checkbox not displaying when admin views a submission after it had been saved
Fixed an issue where lookup subfields were appearing out of order
Fixed an issue where the reports share link redirected to an incorrect page
Fixed the height of paragraph fields shown by conditional logic
A user lookup field allows you to reference your existing user data when filling in a form. If you need to reference a manager or partner on a submission, you can add a User Lookup field and allow people to choose from your up-to-date user list instead of manually entering someone’s details.
All form-related system notifications in one place
You can find and edit all system emails relating to a form in the Notifications tab. Navigate to Edit form >> Notifications to review your templates.
All customised templates and settings have been carried over to the Notifications tab.
Addition of automations audit trail
All system automations are now being logged in the audit trail.
Comma seperators in dashboard cards and tabs
Thousand separators have been added to all numbers on dashboard cards and on tabs on the View Submissions page to make it easier to read large numbers.
Fixed an issue where automation rules using ‘Contains’ were looking for an exact match instead of a partial match.
Fixed an issue where some form admins were listed in the reminders dropdown multiple times.
Fixed an issue where conditional logic dropdowns were displaying field names out of order.
Submission drawer dates are now always consistent with the submissions grid in every timezone.
Automate more steps in your workflow with custom triggers and a robust set of conditions. For example, you can create an automation that will assign Rebecca as the Responsible Admin when the answer to ‘Office Location’ is ‘New York’ but assign the submission to John if the answer is ‘London’.
Immediate save of Assigned User, Responsible Admin and Status for admins
The dropdown fields for Status, Assigned User and Responsible Admin can now be saved independently of form data.
Click the blue checkmark to save your changes to these fields.
Improvements to field lookups
Field lookups were released in our last version and are designed to reference data in your forms from another existing form (instructional video here).
In this version we’ve added the ability to reference:
admin only fields
Additional actions on ‘select all’ on the submissions grid
Users can choose to ‘Share submission’ and ‘Update responsible admin’ after selecting all submissions.
Years will appear in the submission timeline
The submission timeline will now display the year in which a change was made as you scroll through.
Fixed a problem where admin only questions were appearing out of order when section logic is applied.
Fixed an issue where multiple choice and confirmation box selections were appearing blank in some circumstances for admins.
Long confirmation checkbox text now wraps correctly.
Fixed an issue where the sub-fields within a lookup field were appearing out of order in form logic.
Fixed an issue where searching a specific submission tab with ‘contains’ would also filter the rest of the tabs.
Fixed an issue where clicking on shared submission links took users to a blank dashboard.
Fixed an issue with global search returning inaccurate submission counts.
Lookup fields are a new field type designed to save your users time and provide more accurate data.
Use lookup fields to reference data from another form. Instead of asking users to enter data again, use a lookup field to create a link to the second form and prompt users to choose a submission from there.
Enhancements to confirmation checkbox fields
Confirmation checkbox fields can be used to verify that the user has understood the information presented to them or to prompt the user to check their responses before submitting a form.
Confirmation checkbox fields can now be used in flagging or form branching logic. For example, admins can create logic to open a new set of questions only after the confirmation box is ticked.
Optimised global search feature
The global search is more responsive when searching through large numbers of submissions.
Default sort order on the forms dashboard
Forms will now be sorted A-Z by default.
Cleaned up the password reset page to improve layout and usability.
Fixed an issue where typing ‘0’ into a number field was displaying an error on submit.
Fixed an issue where ‘Request more info’ emails were failing to send in some circumstances.
Fixed an issue where admin-only fields were not appearing in the visibility logic dropdown.
Fixed an issue where reminders were not sent for ‘Not started’ submissions.
Fixed an issue where logic was breaking when the value entered into certain fields was quickly and repeatedly changed.
Fixed an issue where there was no option to retain existing users when doing a bulk user upload.
Clients with user groups can take advantage of our new access restriction feature on Form Builder. This is great for limiting access to a specific internal or external audience. For example, you could limit a form to only be visible/shareable with one office, or you could create groups for internal staff and external suppliers and limit each form to the correct audience.
To restrict access to a specific audience navigate to ‘Edit form’ >> ‘Share your form’ >> ‘Access’.
Toggle the setting on to decide which user groups will be able to view your form.
Users within the selected groups will not be able to share or assign forms to users outside of the group.
(Note: Navigate to the Users page to set up user groups.)
You can now seamlessly export a form from your sandbox/development Omnitrack site into your live Omnitrack system.
This is especially helpful for clients that host Omnitrack on premises who can move forms between environments or from a hosted sandbox to an on-premises system.
Emojis in field titles and descriptions
Emojis can help make your form easier to read and understand while also adding some colour. We use emojis in field names and in instructional text to draw attention to key points.
To add an emoji, navigate to ‘Edit form’ >> ‘Form builder’ and hover over any field. Click on the emoji picker in the bottom left hand corner and select your favourite.
Cleaner default column layout
The default column layout for both admins and end users has been simplified to show more of the form information that helps to identify each submission.
Fixed an issue with iPad compatibility using certain types of single sign on.
Fixed an issue where reminders aren’t sent for submissions in ‘Not Started’ status.
Fixed an issue where a mandatory field which had been archived prevented end users from submitting their form.
When an admin creates a new submission and clicks ‘Save changes’ the submission remains in ‘Not Started’ instead of transitioning to ‘In Progress’.
We’re always assessing how we can make Omnitrack even more flexible, practical and effective, and are excited today to introduce ‘custom statuses and automations’.
The ‘Edit Form’ section of Omnitrack now features two new pages – Statuses and Automations – that allow you to define your own workflow statuses and automation rules. Like all Omnitrack settings, these settings are intuitive, flexible and easy to set up with no technical know-how required.
In addition to the existing option to edit a global system template, we’ve added the ability to edit emails on a per form basis. For example, you can customise your ‘Share Submission’ template for your DAC6 form and have a different ‘Share Submission’ template with different wording for your Health and Safety form.
To access this feature navigate to ‘Edit form’ on an existing form and click into the new ‘Notifications’ page.
Enhanced mobile view for end-users
End users will enjoy an upgraded and more seamless mobile experience.
New confirmation field type
Confirmation checkbox fields are an important part of many workflows that require users to affirm that they have completed or understood their process.
End user dashboard displays archived forms
End users can view their submissions on archived forms but editing will be disabled until the form is restored to ‘live’ status.
Comma separators added to number and currency fields
When users type into any number or currency field commas separators will be added automatically to reduce errors in number input.
Fixed the search bar in the template library.
Fixed an issue with the folder selection dropdown being blank even when the form was in a folder.
Fixed the incorrect hover text displaying on the ‘Ownership’ column.
Data collection in Omnitrack is fast and simple. This latest release includes a complete overhaul of the ‘forms engine’ which makes the Omnitrack experience of filling in and reviewing forms faster and smoother.
The new forms engine features quicker navigation, seamless data input, and improved handling of very long forms with complex logic.
Ease of use improvements
The new top bar will be ‘sticky’ at the top of the screen and always available to users, including:
An autosave indicator which lets you know when your changes have been saved and it’s safe to close the form
New and cleaner “share and reassign” icon
New and cleaner “export” icon
Dropdown fields now include a search bar so users can easily find the value they are looking for
New date picker
The date picker has a new look and will no longer get hidden by pesky browser suggestions or other fields
Admin dashboard redesign
The main administrator dashboard has been redesigned to improve the visual appearance and to show more useful information to administrators at a glance.
You can now create folders to help organise your forms by department or by type. (Folder permissions are coming soon to restrict admins to specific folders.)
Tick the top-right corner of a form or folder card to view the new actions menu. You can now manage and organise folders and forms in bulk.
Fixed a typo on the reminders page.
Fixed the issue where paragraph fields were not displaying all of the text by default.
Fixed the dashboard sort not saving your last preference.
Fixed an issue where filtering the emails audit trail by subject gave an error.
