The September release of JobTraQ introduced a redesigned administration workspace to make it easier to build and manage business processes in JobTraQ. Version X7.6 brings further improvements to the administrator experience with new management tools in the workflow and form designers. The workflow designer now provides the ability to manage forms, fields, and statuses while building a workflow. And the form designer now makes it easy to manage the statuses used on a form without leaving the form designer. These improvements enable administrators to create and manage items wherever they are used while working on their process.

Self-hosted customers with an active maintenance agreement can immediately download the self-installing upgrade from the JobTraQ customer portal.

SaaS customers will be automatically upgraded at 10pm on Saturday, Dec 30th. If you have any questions please contact

Workflow Designer Improvements

Process Items Area: The workflow designer now includes the same Process Items area that appears on the new Process Overview interface introduced in X7.5. Administrators can create and manage forms, fields, and statuses while building a workflow.

Workflow Node Toolbox: The workflow designer now includes a new workflow node toolbox. Administrators can drag new nodes onto the workflow and connect them to existing lines. This will help new administrators become familiar with the different types of nodes and make it easier to create a new section of workflow.

The Workflow Designer

Improved Form and Status Selection: When choosing a form or status to use in a decision criteria or action, the items in the current process are grouped at the top of the list of available items.

New Form Designer Sidebar

Status Management: The new form designer sidebar lets administrators manage the statuses available in the status field for the form. Statuses are the primary way to show the state of the task or project and often define the transition between the stages in a process. With the new sidebar administrators can add existing statuses to the form, create new statuses for the form, and choose the order that the statuses should appear.

Quickly Add and Remove Fields: Fields in the sidebar now include a checkbox to allow administrators to quickly add and remove fields from the current form. When fields are checked they will automatically be added to the bottom of the current form tab.

The Form Designer

Other Enhancements

The incoming email rule page now displays a security warning if the rule isn’t configured to use SSL.

Hovering over a workflow node with the mouse will display its node id.

Upcoming System Requirement Changes

JobTraQ X7.7 will require Microsoft .NET 4.7. JobTraQ X7.7 will be released in early Q2 2018.
