The Dastra R&D team is very pleased to announce the release of Dastra version 1.5.0 which includes a major feature that many of our customers have been requesting for almost a year: custom fields.

The development of this feature was a big challenge for the tech team, as we did not want to make a basic implementation of custom fields: just more form fields. We want the custom fields to be really usable in the application and to be fully integrated with what makes Dastra so productive: table columns, advanced filters, exports, imports, bulk updates...

We have also passed an important step for the application server code, as we have upgraded the framework from .Net 6.0 to .Net 7.0, which will improve the application loading time by 20 to 30%.

New features

  • Custom fields: to access them, go to Workspace settings > Custom fields
