The new release of Switch 2020 is for the creators, the makers, and the builders. Administrators are given more powerful tools and the freedom to design automation that allows businesses to work their own way.
‘Two of the biggest feature additions will make Switch flow creation more powerful than ever,’ said Toon Van Rossum, Enfocus Product Manager. ‘Putting more resources into the hands of Switch automation creators leads to more integration flexibility, more custom development possibilities, and more opportunity for the fruition of ideas. Switch is being positioned as the epicentre for the automation revolution. Creators are free to rebel against the ‘out of the box’ solutions and truly build outside of the box automation.’
Scripting with Node.js
NPM, The Node Package Manager
Consider it an app store for scriptwriters. When writing Switch scripts, users now have access to all available node.js packages available on NPM. NPM contains over 800,000 code packages and almost all of them are compatible with Switch Scripts, starting with the Switch 2020 Spring release.
Tools for developers
Developers can use their preferred IDE. Instead of using the Switch Scripter environment to create their Switch Scripts, they can now use their preferred editor, debugger, and other development tools.
One of the most requested features, the Flow Viewer is not only a viewer, but also gives users access to annotations. Add remarks, questions and extra information to more complicated flows quickly and easily. Creators can produce better flow documentation. They can record and communicate flow processes more accurately.
