Webpart catalog – Add audiences to ready-to-use web parts

From the webpart administration panel, it will now be possible for administrators to manage a specific audience for their ready-to-use configuration.

From this page, you can define 2 statuses for your configurations:

  • Visibility (eye symbol): Visible only to its author or to all contributors.
  • Availability (padlock symbol): the configuration can be used on all your tenant's site collections, or only on the site collection from which it was created.

( Example of a webpart visible to all contributors and available on all tenant collection sites ) 


( Example of a web part visible only to its author and available only on this collection of sites ) 


You can also filter your configurations according to these statuses, and manage each configuration separately. 

What's more, in the same interface and in Powell Manager, you can define the default visibility and availability of your webparts when they are created by contributors.

Subscription – improvements

Last release, we introduced a new scenario for Subscriptions and notifications inside a web context.

We keep improving the new scenario with few quality of life features that will help you enaging to the feature : 

  • Mark as read a notification when the user opens it
  • Delete a notification
  • Delete all notifications

  Complete documentation


NB: As the feature is in preview for now, it can only be enabled at the tenant level by a Powell administrator not to impact your current site (you can ask for it by creating a support ticket).


Mobile application - We now manage all languages in variation switcher 

Until today when you preferred language was not part of the display language list (for example fr-be), the display language of your application was the default one.

In the previous example if your default language is english, user with preferred language fr-be had all their interface in English in place of in French.

Today we change this behavior to manage these display languages and redirect to the correct language. 

Now a user with a preferred language set as fr-be will have his interface in french.
