Fixes and improvements

The following fixes and minor improvements are included in this version of Interact.


Description of Change


Interact plugin – Forms

Improvements have been made to the way the Interact forms reference a Blue Prism queue. These include:

  • If a work queue is renamed within Blue Prism, when the refresh icon is used next to the Queue name in Interact Forms, the Queues list reflects the latest name.
  • The form now uses the work queue's unique identifier rather than its name. This ensures that the same work queue is used for the form even if it is renamed. There is no change to the Interact Forms user interface – when creating a form, the user still selects the name of the work queue for ease of use.



A new Download button has been added when viewing a submission that includes an uploaded file. The Download button displays when viewing:

  • Draft submissions
  • Submissions in the user's inbox
  • Submissions requiring approval
  • Submissions under the History tab

The Download button enables the user to review the attached file. Previously, users could not download the attached file when the submission was in their inbox.

An issue has been fixed where a submitted form did not display in the Submission history if it contained a hidden page without any fields. The form now displays in the Submission history section of the History tab in Interact. HUB-2350

Performance improvements have been made to Interact. As part of this, the following changes have been made:

  • The submission counter has been removed. Previously, this displayed above the Select button when a form was selected on the Home tab in Interact.
  • The Most frequently used filter has been removed. Previously, this displayed as an option under Order By on the Home tab in Interact.
