Hello Community,

I notice the following behavior on a Creatio cloud instance (Haven't checked it on an on-premises instances, but presume that it must be similar).

Consider a trial instance with the base URI of "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/" and assume a user has just logged in ie The browser has an active session. 

  1. Navigating to "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/" forces the login page once again - despite the user session being available in the browser.
  2. Navigating to "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/0/" goes to a screen which doesn't load (Creatio loading icon is seen but console throws up numerous errors) - https://prnt.sc/vs63pa
  3. Navigating to "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/0/Nui/" throws up a 403 Access denied error . 
  4. Navigating to "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/0/Nui/ViewModule.aspx" or "https://012345-service-enterprise.creatio.com/0/Nui/ViewModule.aspx#Int…" or any of the actual Creatio pages (Section records etc) recognizes the logged in user session and loads the relevant page. 

It will help to standardize the above, recognize the logged in user session and auto redirect - Especially the different behaviors between #1 and #4. Users could very well bookmark URL #1 and lose the advantage of session tracking.

Hello Shrikanth,

 

Yes, the behavior you've described is an out-of-the-box behavior and our core R&D team has a task to enable proper redirects in case the user has an active session in a web browser and tries to reach the links mentioned above. I will let them know about your idea so to prioritize the task for them.

 

Thank you for helping us to make the application workflow better!

 

Best regards,

Oscar

In the code editor in 7.17, there are a few problems that make it frustrating to use:

  1. There is some inconsistent behavior with indent spacing. Sometimes a tab is the same as 2 spaces, however sometimes a tab is the same as 4 spaces. It all depends on if it's auto-indented as you hit enter to add a new line or if you hit the tab key directly. Even worse, the two tab sizes get mixed throughout the code making things difficult to read and becomes extremely frustrating. (I'd prefer 4 space tab size to keep things consistent since that is what all the code that existed before this editor was using)
  2. I never want line-wrapping. Having lines of code wrap only makes things difficult to read. Long lines of code need to just create a horizontal scrollbar. Line wrapping isn't standard/default behavior in the CodeMirror editor being used in 7.17 - the lineWrapping config setting has been intentionally turned on in Creatio.
  3. Searching through code is less than desirable. Using CTRL+F to find the first result and then CTRL+G to cycle through the next result(s) isn't intuitive, not to mention how the search box immediately collapses. The CodeMirror editor does have a persistent search box by using ALT+F (or Option+F on a Mac), however, this doesn't seem to be implemented in the Creatio version of the editor. This is desperately needed (and should be made the default search behavior of CTRL+F, if possible). The CodeMirror persistent search with ALT+F works exactly how searching worked in the pre-7.17 code editor (simply hit enter to cycle through results)
  4. This one isn't an issue, but would be an extremely nice to have. I'd love to be able to collapse the left side pane to get a wider view of the code.

These are technically enhancement requests. However, for me, I consider them issues since they get in the way of the new editor being a positive experience and add to it being difficult or frustrating to use.

Thanks,

Ryan

Hello Ryan,

 

Hope you're doing well.

 

Thank you for being always interested in the Creatio application and further its improvements. We have created a functional request and passed it to our R&D team. After additional review, if the request will be in high demand these changes will be implemented in the future versions of the application.

 

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

 

Best regards,

Roman

Creatio by default allows a user to choose between 50, 250 and 500 as max lengths of a Text column from the Object designer. In a use case where Creatio co-exists with an external system and both share the same fields, it becomes important to maintain consistency with respect to data types and lengths.

Right now, the only way to enforce a custom length (say String(8)) is to implement field validators on the Creatio GUI and write custom code to validate any input received via server side integrations. However, the field in the DB would still have 50, 250 or 500 as the length. This is not ideal. 
 

It would be very useful to permit defining custom lengths of fields Eg String(8) from the Object designer which directly creates those custom lengths in the database.

Hello Shrikanth,

Thank you for being interested in the Creatio application and further its improvements. We have created a functional request and passed it to our R&D team. After additional review, if the request will be in high demand this kind of functionality will be implemented in the future versions of the application and the users will be able to permit defining custom lengths of the needed fields without adding the custom code.

 

We appreciate your cooperation!

It'd be nice to have the option of a dark ide when editing client-side code.

Dear Tyler,

 

Thank you for your idea. We will register it in our backlog to consider its implementation in the future application releses.

100% yes. Also, I'd love to be able to change the font size as well.

This new code editor appears to be based off the CodeMirror JS editor, which already has support for themes (including dark themes). So already a long ways ahead to add this in Creatio. I tried modifying the CSS class to add a CodeMirror dark theme, but looks like the other theme CSS  aren't present in Creatio currently.

Ryan

FYI, it looks like it's doable to load CodeMirror themes with some very small tweaks (I'm currently using the darcula theme)

Ryan Farley,

Nice! I'd be interested to learn how you did it.

I will be writing it up, however, it's quite hacky at the moment (and only doable on-prem with my current method). I'll be trying out a few other methods to see if I can find an alternative  method that can be packaged.

However, if I can't get it to work as a package, I'll definitely implement it as a browser extension.

I believe that the Marketing Activities should have the option to be linked to other objects in the Marketing part of Creatio such as Events, Emails, Campaigns and Landing Pages.

 

A marketing activity symbolizes something of a Marketing task that is to be carried out by a Marketing-person. Therefor the thing that the person is accually working on could be something else represented inside of Creatio. Like working on an event. Designing new Email graphics and layout. Et cetera. That is why I belive the Marketing Plan and Activity should be able to have links to the other objects.

 

I tried designing a package for this purpose to put in the Marketplace but the Marketing Plan and Marketing activity -objects are unique and diffucult to work with, since the section can not be edited in the normal section wizard.

Hello Julius,

 

Hope you're doing well.

 

Thank you for providing us with this idea. We have created a request for our R&D team. In case if this functionality request will be in high demand from other clients and partners it will be implemented in future versions of the application. The information about changes will be added to the Creatio release notes.

 

We appreciate your cooperation.

 

Best regards,

Roman
