Zenario 7.0.5 has just been released and so we have detailed some of the main features you can expect in the new build.

New forms system

There have been some substantial updates to the Forms system.

CRM integration

You can now connect a form with an external customer relationship management system (CRM), such as Salesforce™. You can enter a CRM field name for individual fields on a form.

When using a contact form on your site the details are posted to the CRM, as well as generating the usual email alerts.

(Note that the "CRM form integration" module must be running.)

Multi-page forms

You can now split forms into multiple pages by inserting page breaks.

Section descriptions and other user notes can be placed among the form fields.

Here's an example form:

There is a new field type called "Attachment" which allows a user to attach a file to the form submission.

You can choose to make a form open in a pop-up box (modal window) if you wish.

Reconfirmation fields

We now have "mirrored" fields that will display information previously entered in a field, this can be used as a reconfirmation of the details for the user before submission. 

Calculated fields

There is a new "calculated' field type. Such a field can be based on the sum or difference of two other fields that are entered by the user.

As before, administrators can view a log of all form responses for easy access to form submission data.

New documents system

The Content Type Document system is slowly being replaced by a new "Documents 2" system. This should be easier to use:

  • Documents appear in a familiar hierarchical folder structure
  • Documents can be uploaded by drag-and-drop, or by clicking an Upload button; they can optionally be loaded from Dropbox
  • There's no need to publish
  • Documents can still be private or public, according to the permissions of the web page on which you place them
  • Documents can be tagged
  • Publicly available documents are easy to share

When you upload a PDF to the document area the first page will automatically be scanned and used as a thumbnail image. (If you prefer to set the image manually, you can upload a different custom thumbnail image to overwrite the auto-created thumbnail, and thereby display that image on the website).

Documents can be displayed on a website, either using a "Document container", or by having a hyperlink to the document within a WYSIWYG area.

With a Document Container, the administrator can choose whether to show a single, specific document, a list of all documents in  a given folder, or a list of documents with a given tag.

user guides

If using the old document system and want to migrate to the new one, then you can do so by using the in-built migration option.
