In this article, you'll find a list of our most impactful new features and enhancements that we have released this month.
Update to Two-Factor Authentication: Allow Ziflow to “trust” your device for 30 days, require 2FA for all users
With this release, we've introduced a new option that lets Ziflow admins make two-factor authentication a requirement for their users. The initial roll-out of this feature gave Ziflow users the option to enable it, making additional login security a personal choice.
Starting today, administrators can choose to enforce two-factor authentication for all users within their Ziflow instance. To make the rollout amongst team members more gradual, the setup of their authenticator app can be delayed up to (and until) their 5th unique login to the platform.
We’ve also added a new checkbox in our two-factor authentication process that allows users to let Ziflow “trust” their browser and device, eliminating the need for frequent reauthentication. Once they’ve allowed Ziflow to “trust” their browser/device, users won't be required to provide an authorization code (the second factor, in two-factor authentication) again for 30 days.
This update is particularly beneficial for companies with IT policies that mandate regular logouts from SaaS tools, typically within a 24-hour timeframe. By having Ziflow establish trust in their browsers and devices, it should ensure a smoother user experience with fewer authenticator-driven interruptions.
Ziflow 2.0: improved post-Review creation behavior
We’ve heard a lot of amazing feedback from our customers about Ziflow 2.0, our updated creative process dashboard, including about what users experience immediately after a review is created. With this week’s release, we’re providing a more visual connection between the moment a review or reviews are created and the result of that action.
The moment after a user creates a review via Ziflow 2.0’s New Review dialog box, they’ll see the Review Details flyout for that new review appear on the right side of the screen atop the view they had previously accessed. From here they can see that their asset has been uploaded and is processing, and they can make any additional changes to the review in the moments before their automated workflow kicks off.
Update to Ziflow’s integration with Monday.com: search for, populate unique Column IDs
Monday.com gives their customers a great deal of flexibility in structure and naming, particularly as it pertains to the unique columns that populate project boards. However, this means many custom columns will possess unique column IDs, depending on the board they’ve been enabled for. As a result, Ziflow has made some adjustments to our own Monday.com integration—specifically around custom columns—to make it easier to automatically populate unique column IDs.
With this release, we’ve added a new Zibot that can search for a specific columns by name through Monday.com’s API, which will return a custom column ID. In addition, we’ve updated our Zibot that can specify a column in an automated flow, which can now be populated by the searched-for ID number.
