Permissions for editing in grid

Permissions in Flow factory makes it easy to define global rules that limit what data can be edited by who. This functionality has now been extended to also include editing in grids so that these rules are also enforced for inline editing.

Storing data in User system module

You now have the possibility to save changes to User system module. This data module has a mirrored structure of the system database and can be used to store application settings that can be used during run time, such as customized export or import definitions or view settings.

Loading data from other data modules

Support has been added to load data from other data modules besides the main data module. This way you can present information from user system, system or even platform modules in your application.

Formatting dates in labels

You can now specify format for dates in labels. This way you can exactly control how dates are shown.
