New product releases

☁️  Forest Admin Cloud (Instant Setup) Only: Authorize Forest Admin IP Addresses for Enhanced Security

This recent release allows you to authorise Forest Admin IP address in your database to enhance security when using Forest Admin Cloud (Instant Setup). Read how.

✉️ Copy the invitation link and share it with your new teammates

We have recently added a small functionality that helps administrators to invite users. If, for any reason, a new user doesn’t receive an invitation to Forest Admin, just go to Project Settings > Users > select a user who is pending an invitation > click on Actions > and Copy the invitation link.

🔢 Select a page to display on the collection view

We have also released a small improvement that allows you to select a specific page to display on the collection view. There is no need to click several times to access the page that you want! Just click on the page’s number and select the right one.

🔑 Configure the SSO on multiple organizations in the same identity provider

Another improvement is related to the Single Sign-On configuration. To avoid issues due to restrictions relative to some Identity Providers, now, when creating a new SSO configuration through our Organization Settings, the given ID should be forestadmin-OrganizationName instead of just forestadmin. Read more about the SSO Configuration.

🧩 New features on Workspaces: Better control the data displayed on the collection components

Workspaces have also gained new features and improvements. Now, you have more control over the data displayed in the collection component:

  • Manually set the number or records visible per page in the table.
  • Decide whether to show different elements of the UI such as filters, Actions and Create buttons, and search bar.
  • You can enable or disable segments dropdown to give your users more or less freedom when it comes to displaying data in that specific collection.
  • Finally, you can choose between a smart view and a table view if your collections has a smart one. If it doesn't (like in the screenshot above), the option is disabled.
