Sapho Employee Experience Portal 4.9 is here! Let’s take a look at the main highlights from our latest release.
We know our Sapho customers use Adobe Sign to enable all-digital document workflows that allow employees to sign documents right from their devices, so we’re excited to announce our latest integration with Adobe Sign. Now, managers can receive notifications about new signature requests directly in their feeds and instantly review and sign documents.
In addition, Sapho 4.9 now supports embedding a page from a separate web application running on the same application server. For example, you could build a dynamic, multi-step wizard and then embed it directly into Sapho using our new Java integration module. As a result, organizations can leverage more complex forms and workflows from external apps that extend beyond the capabilities of standard Sapho micro apps. You can find more detailed information about this new module, here.
We’ve heard from our customers that there are many cases where employees need the ability to select a value from a long list of possible values, such as choosing a country to add to contact details in an employee directory. The new Look Up component can be used to search and select from large data sources, making it easier for employees to use micro apps to complete a task.
In addition, the Look Up component can also be used to find a value by searching for something else. For instance, a micro app can now be configured to allow an employee to enter a country in order to find an international dialing code to add to a contact phone number.
Starting in 4.9, you’ll see a brand new user interface when you open the action section of the button component. We’ve broken down the previous button options offered in Builder into more flexible core actions that can be linked together in a sequence. For example, you can now create a sequence after a button click that looks like this: Update Record, Run Events, Go to Page.
This means that you are no longer limited to the options of a particular action and you can even execute more actions at once. Simply select an action from the list to add it the action sequence and then expand it to set any properties it might have. The order of actions can be easily changed at any time by dragging and dropping them within the sequence.
BMC Remedy integration
We’ve added support for BMC Remedy Incidents in Sapho 4.9. Now, you can create, browse, and update incidents right from Sapho. They will also receive notifications on any device, intranet, or messenger when the incident or assignment status changes.
G Suite Directory integration
We’ve rounded out our G Suite Directory Integration to support both standard and custom user attributes. Additionally, this integration now includes three new write back actions for basic user management.
Sapho now supports subfolders, document renaming, and deep linking. We also added additional enhancements to file uploading.
In our latest release, we’ve made updates to make synchronizing expense data more efficient, including a new option to filter data by transaction date. Additionally, you can now add a comment when approving or rejecting an expense report.
