We are pleased to announce the incorporation of Viewlets into the SmartSimple wiki. Geared for more visual learners, Viewlets provide a step-by-step visual presentation on basic to advanced topics in SmartSimple. Get started with the Viewlets here.


SmartSimple Application Programmer Interface

  • We are releasing a beta version of the SmartSimple Application Programmer Interface (API). This tool will be used by computer programmers to develop applications that interact with the SmartSimple database. If you are interested in receiving a copy of the API please give us a call. It should be noted that the API is a tool for experienced programmers.

Customizable Event Types

  • You can now add your own activity event types to the system through Global Settings, Business Configuration, Event Types. You can also add custom fields to these event types.

Tracking Changes on Custom Fields

  • If you need to track every change made to a value in a custom field, you can enable the Track Changes check box. From that point, each time the value of the field is changed the original and new value will be stored, along with the username and a date/time stamp.
  • In order to see the field history you will need to be in a role associated with a new Manager Permission - View Custom Field History. You can then click the small Icon beside the field to see the field history.

Definable Default User Settings

  • Until now, when you created a new user, you had no control over that user's personal settings (Display settings, Regional settings). These settings can now be set globally through Global Setting, User & Contact Setting, Default User Settings. Once you set these options they will be carried forward to all new users that are created.

Add/Remove Multiple Contacts from a Role

  • You can now add or remove multiple contacts to a role at the same time. Go to the Role, Roles & Permissions and select the role. The users are listed below the role. Select the user and click Remove. To add users to the role click the Add Users tab.

RSS Feed

  • An RSS Subscription shortcut has been added to existing job listing pages, from which users can subscribe directly to RSS Feeds. RSS feeds make it possible for people to keep up with their favourite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.
