Release Date: July 06, 2018
New Features Release 3.5
Client Side Business Objects
Business objects can now also be executed directly on the browser or on the respective mobile device. They are created centrally and can therefore be reused several times.
Tags of connectors and business objects for easier search / categorization
Each connector/business object, widget and data type can now be tagged. For example, project-related configuration objects can be tagged by the project name, which makes them easier to find again.
Automatic reloading of the preview when saving in the UI Designer
Every click on the “Deploy” button automatically reloads the preview in the browser.
New business object API incl. autocompletion
Within a business object, the most common functions can be accessed using a standard API and auto-completion.
Errors in the Simplifier Mobile Client can now be evaluated centrally.
Application configuration level
So that you can really check how much programming effort we avoid through our low-code approach, the degree of configuration is now displayed in percent in the application overview.
Interactive API documentation
The documentation of the Simplifier REST API is now directly accessible via an HTML site and can be tested directly.
New Mobile Action
For the scan of meters we now support the technology of our partner Pixolus via configuration.
The background mode can be activated for notifications / push notifications so that the user is informed even without active use of the Simplifier Mobile Client.
Updated Features Release 3.5
Extended configuration options in the Process Designer

- Load display for access to connectors or Business objects can now be switched on and off
- Validation of mandatory parameters for mappings for Business objects and connectors
- New toolbar in Process Designer incl. copy & paste function
- Validation of the configuration when saving the user story
- External links in the user stories allow linking to an external project management tool
- Double-click on configuration artifacts to open the configuration directly
- The navigation activity can be linked for follow-up activities and transition effects can be set
- Search for widgets within the Process Designer

Brute force attacks can now be prevented via the security policies.
Simplifier Jobs can now be started automatically in several variants (one time, daily, weekly, monthly).
Simplifier Universal Client for Android
We have reworked our Simplifier Universal Client for Android to include the same features as in the iOS Universal Client.
In addition to the function that you can work offline with the Simplifier client or the autostart function for already installed business applications, we now also support the fingerprint sensor for login with Android. Furthermore, the Android client now appears in a new layout in native Android material design.
In addition, we offer optimized menu navigation on data glasses, depending on the hardware completely with voice control. Support information is also automatically transmitted to the server on request.
And for the developers, a developer mode is now available that displays errors from the console directly on the device.
Revised interface for the configuration of connectors
The creation and editing of connectors has now been made clearer and easier.
The creation of a connector is possible via a dialog so that the functionality can be reused in other parts of the Simplifier. The dialog is divided into two sections. On the left side general and login information are displayed, on the right side you will find the type specific information.
