Gravity Flow v2.7.8 Released

Gravity Flow version 2.7.8 is now available via auto-update and for download from the account area.

This is a feature and maintenance release that includes enhanced integration with GravityView and some bug fixes. We recommend that customers upgrade as soon as possible.

Highlights in v2.7.8

This release includes 2 enhancements focused on improving the integrated experience for users who combine the powerful workflow features of Gravity Flow with the flexible entry presentation and editing features of GravityView.

GravityView Integration Enhancements

This release introduces a new field type – Workflow Approval Links – that simplifies the process for both creating a list view and users submitting their approvals directly from it. The approve/reject links will only be available for entries that are currently on an approval step with icons that match to what they regularly see on the buttons of the entry details screen.
