Table of contents

Do you want to know what’s new in Arengu? December brings an improved and more refined syntax, so you can create server-side logic in an easier way. Plus, we have improved the user experience for the autocomplete feature, so you can input variables in an easier and faster way. Other updates of this month include more personalization in the Forms editor, including more field settings and a new block to navigate in between steps. 

Improved syntax

We’re working on developing an updated and more refined version of the current syntax, which includes the usage of a nullish operator.

A nullish operator allows one to choose one reference or the other. This is particularly useful for signup forms where the user can choose between a signing in with email or with social media, among others. Now, you can skip replicating the branched actions, and write this reference instead.

For instance, in a signup action, the reference {{ ??}} will scan what the user chose (signing up with social media or with email) and continue the flow actions accordingly. 

New autocomplete feature

Referencing variables in Arengu is crucial so your actions are linked to each other as well as to the form’s input. That is why we have improved the autocomplete feature, so you can add your references in an easier and more convenient way.

Click on the + button, and select the source for your references — the form or the flow executions. Once you select the source, you will be able to search among your existing forms and executions, the corresponding data.

This new feature also permits you to access the shared state of all the flows used in a certain form.

In Arengu, state can be modified with the action Store state variable and this data is available in all flows belonging to a user journey with a form.

Shared state come in handy to share certain data among flows, and reuse it in successive flows. For instance, in a passwordless flow with a one-time password, you may want to login your users in a first flow and store the login_url in the shared state to use it in the second step, after the user has successfully entered the OTP. 

New block for form navigation in between steps

In previous versions of Arengu, it was necessary to create a flow to personalize the form navigation process. In order to skip steps and jump to a certain step, flow actions needed to be added to the flow. 

Now, you can also add a block in the Forms editor. With it, you will be able to modify the predefined sequence of steps, and personalize the form navigation to your taste.

Increased personalization of fields

Password fields now support setting a minimum and maximum length. You will find this under the password field settings.

When the set length is not met, an error message will be shown so users can adapt their passwords to your own security rules.
