Improved actions editor
The actions editor is reorganized in 3 tabs:
- General Settings
- Service Request Actions
- Service Response Actions
You can now control much better the maximum size and file types of attachments globally, per application, or per form. In the latter case, the configuration can be done directly in Form Builder's Form Options tab. For more information, see the blog post.
