A recent release to the Workiva Platform included improvements to the following products and features:
Exporting hidden slides
With this release, you now have the option to include or exclude hidden slides when exporting Presentations. By default, hidden slides are excluded from exports.
If you wish to include them in your export:
- Click File > Export.
- Click Include Hidden Slides.
- Choose what to include in your export.
- Click Export.
If exported to PDF, your hidden slides will appear alongside all other slides. If exported to PowerPoint, hidden slide will be marked as hidden just as they are in Workiva.
Multi-file support now in report packages
Users can now add up to 40 Workiva files in a report package and export them to PDF.
Updates to member management (Classic only)
We are now removing the ability to manage users from the classic member management screens; any new users should be added through Workspace Settings. You can still view which members are being CC’d (carbon copied) on email through the classic screen, but only Workiva Support may update these settings.
In the Locate Concepts panel, the name of the XBRL Outline subsection is now listed for a concept's Presentation and Calculation locations.
Note: These changes are currently available only to standalone OneCloud subscribers, but will be released to all Workiva users in the coming weeks.
Connections within templates
We built chain templates to be shareable between workspaces, but templates are dependent on both workspaces having access to the same connectors and commands. So if Workspace A shares a template with Workspace B, and Workspace B is missing a connector, the imported chain won’t work until that connector is enabled.
This previously required you to enable the missing connector and then update each command one-by-one – or start the entire import over. With this release, however, you can now set up missing connectors at the same time that you bring a template into your workspace.
Additionally, we’ve added a dynamic notification to the Chain Builder canvas that will notify you when a connector is missing:
Update permissions in filing forms
We've added the ability to edit permissions directly from Filing forms. Previously, permissions could only be edited on the Home screen.
GRI 2021 available in ESG Explorer
