New Features - Widgets, Movable Buttons, and Query Security

Posted: 5/22/2008 1:54:00 AM
We released a few new features recently, here's the scoop.
Query Security
In the last feature update we allowed you to create new queries. Well, now you can limit access to those queries by user group. This will allow you to create custom queries for your anonymous users even if you don't want to grant them access to the underlying tables.

Widgets
Widgets are objects you can embed in your headers, footers, and views. They are snippets of text that you can add to different areas of the site. For example, you can create a widget that will allow you to add a 5-star rating to items in any table. You can add a comment form, a Web 2.0 map from Google, Yahoo, or Live Maps.

If you have a cool widget you'd like to share, let us know.

Movable Buttons
By popular demand, you can now move the buttons around on your forms. By default, they will appear at the bottom of the form, instead of the right hand side of the page. We agree with those of you who said this is more intuitive. Thank you for the suggestion! We hope you like the change.
