Introducing ProcessMaker 3.4!
Blog: ProcessMaker Blog
We are proud to announce our latest release: ProcessMaker 3.4! Take advantage of the newly released Theme Plugin that empowers you to customize a newly designed interface for your ProcessMaker instance. This version also includes updates and further support for our SAML and support for MySQL 5.7. Further changes in this release include an update to our Actions by Email feature that allows users to respond with an email to take action and provide additional feedback. These are just a few of the improvements and additions we’ve made to the platform. Read on to learn about more.
Major improvements to ProcessMaker in this release also include a task manager for emails so email functions and events within ProcessMaker are handled by a queue management system that operates in the background to improve performance and usability. Forms have also been improved with a new UX and asynchronous loading so users can build forms with multiple dependent fields without issue. We’ve also made improvements to our search and advanced search functionality so that users can save their searches for use later.
At ProcessMaker, our passion for innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Innovation leads to better experiences for you, our customers, and the people who interact with our platform every single day. Our product team has been hard at work to implement valuable feedback from the ProcessMaker community. We hope you enjoy our new release and look forward to continuing to improve the platform to deliver the best possible experience to our customers!
