Version 5.1

What's New in Avonni Components for Flows

Enhance your Salesforce flows with an extra layer of protection. The new Biometric component allows users to log in securely using fingerprint or facial recognition.

How it Works:

  • Place the component in your flow. Users will be prompted for biometric authentication.

  • Success? Continue. If authentication is successful, the user can proceed to the next step you define (e.g., another screen or a specific action).

  • Security and Convenience. Protect sensitive data and streamline user logins.

Example Use Case

Add the Biometric component before a screen that displays confidential information. Only authorized users will be able to continue

Avonni Biometrics only works with the Salesforce Mobile App.

Avonni Data Table

Child Relationship Field Display

The Avonni Data Table takes related record integration further! Now, when using the Query data source, you can seamlessly incorporate information from connected records, eliminating the need to navigate between screens for a complete picture.

Example: On an Avonni Data Table displaying Opportunities, you can effortlessly add columns that reveal details from the related Accounts, such as "Account Billing Country" or "Account City."

Why you'll love this:

  • Consolidated view: View all the essential data in one centralized location, providing deeper insights into your records.

  • Time-saver: Avoid tedious tab-switching and searches for related data. Instead, spend your valuable time analyzing information, not hunting for it.

  • Streamlined workflows: Make informed decisions and updates with a broader range of data, all conveniently displayed within the Avonni Data Table.

Avonni Calendar

Resource Color Display in Filters

We've made filtering your Avonni Calendar even easier! The resource filter options show the same color coding you use in the main calendar view.

How this helps:

  • Faster filtering: Instantly recognize the resource you need by its color; there is no need to read names carefully.

  • Clearer organization: Makes it visually obvious which resources belong to which categories (especially if you use color to group similar resource types).

  • Better at a glance: Quickly grasp the distribution of resources in your calendar without opening up every event.

Have you ever used the Avonni Components CSV Parser to upload data from spreadsheets? We've added a new feature to simplify managing those files.

Introducing Save As Content Document for the CSV Parser component. When you upload a CSV file, you can save it directly as a Content Document within Salesforce. This means:

  • No more file juggling: Keep your CSV data organized and readily available alongside your other Salesforce records.

  • Easier access and sharing: You can easily find and share your uploaded CSV files. They'll be stored securely within Salesforce and accessible by authorized users.

  • Enhanced document management: For your CSV files, benefit from Salesforce's robust document management features, like version control and permission settings.

Save As Content Document streamlines your work by simplifying how you store and manage data uploaded through the CSV Parser component.

Avonni Record Detail: Collapsed Sections Stay That Way

We've made working with the Avonni Record Detail component even smoother. Now, your users can collapse or expand any section within the component, and their choices will be saved even if the page refreshes.

This change is automatic - no setup is needed!

Avonni Slider

The Slider component can now easily create eye-catching gradient backgrounds for the Sliders. This means:

  • More engaging interfaces: Avoid plain backgrounds. Use gradients to add depth, highlight a color scheme, or make your Sliders more visually appealing.

  • Customization options: Experiment with color combinations and gradient directions to find a style that perfectly matches your design vision.

Easy to implement: The Style Editor lets you configure the gradient background with a few clicks.

Avonni Button Menu

Two additions have been made to the Button Menu component:

  1. "Value" Attribute: Each menu item can store a hidden value behind the scenes. This lets you track the selected item and use that information to trigger different actions in your flow.

  2. "Disabled Menu Items": Easily disable specific menu items based on certain conditions. This is great for guiding users, preventing unavailable options from being chosen, or dynamically changing the menu based on user input.

Style Editor Update

The Style Editor just got even more powerful! Now, you can use flow variables to control the colors of text, borders, and backgrounds within your Avonni Components.

Why is this interesting?

  • Data-driven design: Make your UI change visually in response to information within your flow. For example, highlight priority levels with different colors or draw attention to changing values.

  • Adaptable interfaces: Create components that adjust their look based on user input or system conditions. This reduces the need for multiple versions of components.

  • Engaging user experience: Add a touch of visual responsiveness that makes your flows more interactive and informative.

How does it work?

  1. Choose the element (text, border, background) within the Style Editor to change dynamically.

  2. Select the "Bind to Variable" option and choose a flow variable that contains a color value.

  3. As your flow runs and the variable value updates, the component's color will automatically change to match.
