Introducing deeper validation across the flow builder

We're excited to announce a significant enhancement to the flow builder: merge field error detection and warnings. This new feature marks a leap forward in the usability and reliability of Pendula for Enterprise.

What's New?

  • Comprehensive validation: The flow builder now actively validates your merge fields at every step. This means increased accuracy and a greatly reduced risk of errors in your flows.

  • Intelligent error and warning interface: Experience a user-friendly interface in the menubar that clearly indicates when a merge field is broken and provides explanation. This feature empowers you to quickly understand and resolve any problems.

  • Errors and warnings: We distinguish between 'errors' and 'warnings' for better decision-making. Errors, which are critical issues, prevent flow activation to ensure reliability. Warnings, on the other hand, are surfaced throughout the builder for awareness but allow you the flexibility to continue to activate the flow if you so choose.

  • Proactive detection: The flow builder now proactively checks for merge field-related issues whenever you delete, move, swap, or duplicate a node, ensuring that all dependencies are validated in real-time.
