SeaTable 3.5 is now available! We have updated SeaTable Cloud this morning at 6 am CET. The Docker image of SeaTable Server 3.5 can also be downloaded from Docker Hub.
Here just the biggest highlights of the new release. You find a more detailed description of SeaTable 3.5 in the Release Notes. We documented all changes – as always – in the Changelog.
Formulas in column 1: Leverage the power of formulas any column you want– yes, including the first column.
More periodic automations: Run all data processing operations automatically based on your schedule.
Conditional button actions: Define your own rule set as to when a button action is executed and when it is not.
Conditional lookups: Fine-tune your link formula column and lookup exactly the data you need.
Improved design: Enjoy a two-column layout in the rows details and a base log that has been freed from the confines of the side panel.
SeaTable 3.5 implements a character limit for long text columns. A long text cell containing text longer than 100.000 characters (roughly 25 DIN A4 pages) will only save the first 100.000 characters.
Another important change for users of SeaTable Cloud’s API: With this update, we have reduced the maximum number of rows returned in a single API call. In the past, a maximum of 10.000 rows were returned. Now, a response contains a maximum of 1.000 rows. Please check if this requires adjustments in your integrations.
Amazing update with many very useful features I have one problem/question though, when I open the apps window to add an app I only get the options Gallery and Data Query but not the Universal App. That is on 3.5 self-hosted Enterprise Edition. Am I missing something or is the Universal App only available for cloud users at this time?
Another thing I am thinking of is, is there a way in the UAB to “identify” an unknown user?
For example an unknown user could be able to define his own settings. These settings would be stored as a cookie or in the browser based storage for example with the option to export these settings and import it on another computer again.
What I mean is at the moment I have to create one app for each user and redo any setting for each new app over and over again like groupings or filters.
Another approach would be to be able to copy UABs. In that case I would only have to set user based filters or so.
When I scroll the table (cursor is on the table) both scrollbars are moving. When I move the cursor between the two scroll bars I cannot scroll the table. It seems like the options panel is somehow interfering. I have some hidden columns on that table page.
I also found out the validation of text columns do not apply. When I enter some text via the form page the validation does not work. Maybe the dev team didn’t develop it yet?
In your form editor, when you create or edit a form you get a form URL. That is the one I was talking about. You just have to go in there again and copy/use the one in there instead of the one used before. At least that worked for me.
