Filter Descriptions

Find more information about the values of the Type and Action filters.

Type

The type signifies if the What's New content is for a new or existing feature or if something important is to be announced. The filter includes the following values:

  • New

    Indicates that the What's New content is for a new feature, element, version, concept, or functionality that hasn't existed before.

  • Deprecated

    Used for features or resources whose support is discontinued and that will be deleted in the future. We recommend that you move to the new substitute of the deprecated feature or resource as soon as possible.

  • Deleted

    Used for features or resources that have been removed. The expectation is that you've adopted the substitute of the deleted feature or resource.

  • Changed

    Indicates that the What's New content is for an enhancement, bugfix, or any other change to an existing feature, element, version, concept, or functionality.

  • Announcement

    Used for important announcements that aren't related to new, changed, deprecated, or deleted features or resources.

Action

The action filter and column indicate the level of disruption to your processes and whether you're required to do any actions. The filter includes the following values:

  • Required

    Indicates a high disruption. To maintain the functionality of a feature, function, or process, an action must be taken by the valid as of date. Without taking action, the process may break or change.

  • Recommended

    Indicates a medium or low disruption. To adopt the feature, function, or process, an action must be taken by the valid as of date. This includes changes on the UI that require changes in the user documentation or in training materials. Without taking action, the old feature, function, or process remain active, but your user experience may be broken.

  • Info only

    Indicates a zero or trivial disruption. It signifies that we're informing you about the feature, but no action is required to use it. It's backward compatible, including the UI.
