Release notes for exMon DM Release 2.8

Created by: Harpa Guðrún Hreinsdóttir

Our August 2020 DM 2.8 update includes a lot of improvements and features. If you would like to upgrade to the newest release contact here.

Web file import

exMon DM online now supports importing Excel and CSV documents on the web! Simply press the button 'Import data' from the toolbar in the table editor and go through the three simple steps (Upload, Preview, Map Columns). When all steps are finished you do not have to wait for the import to finish, instead, you will receive an email letting you know if your import was successful or not. This can save you time since you can now use the time spent waiting for the import to finish working in other tables in exMon DM.

Microsoft Teams Integration

Microsoft Teams has taken remote work by storm and in many offices, like our own, Microsoft Team is the central hub for collaboration.

With exMon DM 2.8 we have optimized the web experience so that you can easily integrate your data within Teams and have relevant data at your fingertips. For more information visit Integration with Microsoft Teams.

Contributor Access changes

Table designers can now control better who can add or remove rows in specific tables. Under Table Properties, you can choose if Contributors can modify, add, and/or remove rows.

For further information on how Contributor Access work visit Create New Table or import the existing Table.


Lock/Unlock rows on the web

You can now use the Lock/Unlock feature on the web. When you lock a row the row becomes instantly a read-only. To make it editable again select the row and press Unlock. This feature can be helpful to prevent someone from accidentally modifying a row that should not be modified.

For further information on how you lock/unlock rows on the web visit Web - Add, Change or Delete Data.
