Release Notes - December 2, 2020

Two-way integrations, new APIs, team settings, conditional styling, and more improvements

Hi Honeycoders,

Our busy bees continue to buildout the hive here at Honeycode. Read on to see all the buzz!


What’s New

:paperclips:Connect to your existing tools and data

Honeycode announces integrations with Zapier and Amazon AppFlow, allowing you to connect your existing workflows and data sources with your Honeycode apps, plus new Honeycode APIs!

These integrations, along with new Honeycode APIs, enable end-to-end solutions for your team and improve business productivity. They also bring together SaaS applications and AWS services with Honeycode apps, to help team achieve even more in their business processes.

Honeycode APIs allow you to read and write directly from Honeycode tables. Use APIs to pull table and column metadata, then use the read and write APIs to programmatically read and write from the tables.

See our new article Connecting with Zapier, AppFlow, & Webhooks and eLearning course Get Connected: Amazon Honeycode APIs and Integrations to learn more. We’ve also updated our API article to include details on all 12 Amazon Honeycode APIs.


:memo: Import data to existing tables

In addition to the above means of writing data to Honeycode tables, we’ve also made it easy to append table to existing tables directly. You can now append table data using a CSV file.

We’ve updated our working with tables article with step-by-step instructions.


:art: Control how an object looks in your app with styling rules

Say you built a to-do app that tracks task status and you want everything with status Blocked to be red, status In Process to be blue, and status Completed to be green. You can now specify your desired styles for app objects showing the status, including: background color; border, corner, and font styling. We call this feature conditional styling.

Check out the step-by-step instructions in our Conditional styling article. We even provide some helpful formulas to get you started quickly on designing conditions.


:woman_juggling: Allow app users to filter and sort lists

One of the most common user interfaces found in Honeycode apps are lists. They typically show top level information and display multiple rows of data from a table. That can be a lot to view at once.

We’ve added a feature to make it easier to offer app users the ability to focus on just what they need using filters and sorting.

Our new filter and sort a list article in the community offers further details on setting these up.


What’s Improved

:mage:t5:‍♂ Enhanced app wizard

The app wizard allows you to quickly and easily build apps via a guided experience. For this launch, we've made some enhancements to the user experience to make it easier to get started building and sharing your apps.

Our step-by-step building with app wizard article has been updated with all the details.


:earth_americas: Manage team level access and authorizations with Team settings

We’ve added the ability to grant team members permissions to invite new team members and cancel any pending invites they have made.

Team settings in Honeycode allow team administrators to manage team level access and authorizations. On the Team settings screen, team admins can see invite controls available for their team and allows them to change authorization as they choose to.

We’ve updated our adding team members article to give you the details.


:cloud: Support for single sign-on with popular identity providers

Larger and enterprise teams on the Honeycode Pro or Plus plans can now take advantage of AWS Single Sign-On (AWS SSO) to manage their Honeycode teams. Supported identity providers such as Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, Okta, OneLogin, PingFederate, or any SAML-based identity provider, including Google Workspace.

AWS SSO makes it easy to centrally manage access to multiple AWS accounts and business applications and provide users with single sign-on access to all their assigned accounts and applications from one place.

Check out our Honeycode Admin guide on AWS Documentation for details about setting up AWS SSO.
