Previously, you could run your app, built on Directual web-page builder, only on a subdomain of .directual.app. But now—get your app up and running on your own personal URL! It can be both first-level address (e. g. mylovelyapp.com) and a subdomain (e. g. crm.mycompany.com). Setting it up is rather easy. Go to Web-pages section →Web-portal settings → Custom domain. Note that this feature is available on Pro and Business pricing plans. Moreover, Directual automatically provides SSL ("secure socket layer") to encrypt your app. SSL is the standard method for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. It ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral, so you and your website's visitors can rest assured that your information is safe.
Directual-Telegram integration has been updated as well. New Telegram step could seem more complex, but it is absolutely flexible. You can use all the features of Telegram API thanks to so called step Pro-mode, where you can compose any request of any Telegram method you like. At the same time, users can use simplified step mode, for sending text messages with reply keyboards.
You can find examples of using new step in the template (Telegram bot).
Cards component has become even more convenient for managing your data and organising some business processes (e. g. approval process). New feature was added — Actions. These are an opportunity to connect additional API-endpoints for creating/updating objects. Actions look like f form or a button on the card. Moreover, an action can be called from connected card.
You can also set some conditionals on actions — they can depend on the object fields values of users parameters. For example, you can create a system where managers change order statuses (assign to themselves), and the lead manager will be able to reassign the orders.
Often you need to change the form dynamically, depending on what user enters. Now it’s available in Directual Form component. First and foremost, you can group the fields in sections, and then make some sections dynamic, setting up the conditionals.
