Quick Base View Generator Wizard
Aptify 6.2 includes a new quick base view generator wizard, which enables customers to build a straightforward base view for a top-level entity and a subtype and/or linked entity. The current base view generation steps require more planning while the new wizard streamlines the base view creation process. The wizard also allows users to build multiple base views during each run, unlike the existing wizard which requires a new run for each base view.
To learn more about multiple base views, refer to the following pages: Using Multiple Base Views and Create Base View using Quick Base View Generator Wizard.

Wootric Integration with Aptify Web
With Aptify 6.2, Aptify Web will be integrated with Wootric software for generating the NPS Score. When an administrator logs into Aptify Web, we would use Wootric to occasionally display an NPS survey to collect Net Promoter Scores.
The content of the survey, the display schedule, and permissions are all configurable in Wootric. Wootric already has settings available to provide various survey configurations. All the survey configurations will be respected by Aptify when an admin user is prompted for a survey.
This will be targeted at Admin users, and not general staff, and not integrated with e-Business. The survey data will be stored in Wootric. We are collecting data from the customer about Aptify. For more information, please refer to Wootric Integration with Aptify 6.2.

Web Socket Support for Signalr connection in Aptify Web
Aptify 6.2 provides support for web socket connections when deploying applications on Azure. To know more about Web sockets, click here.
SignalR uses the new WebSocket transport where available and falls back to older transports where necessary. While it is possible to develop apps using WebSocket directly, using SignalR saves time and effort by providing much of the required functionality. Most importantly, this means that you can code your app to take advantage of WebSocket without having to worry about creating a separate code path for older clients. SignalR also shields you from having to worry about updates to WebSocket, since SignalR is updated to support changes in the underlying transport, providing your application a consistent interface across versions of WebSocket.

CSRF support in Aptify Web
