In Switch 12, you don't have to work on the Switch Server to change or activate flows. Now that we implemented the Remote Designer, you have the possibility to administer your Switch Server wherever you want. You can use only one Designer at the time (local or remote), but you can install it as often as you like, on a MAC and a PC.
A better user interface
By popular request of our customers, we've implemented some small but effective improvements to the user interface of Switch 12.
Make your flows readable to everyone
To make any part of your flow more recognizable, you're now able to give any element, folder or connection a certain color. For example: you can add a green color to every elements which has got to do with input, and so on.
We've also added a description field for you to document any element in a flow. When the flow is activated, these descriptions will show as a tooltip so you'll be able to see how a flow works and why it was set this way.
Save or revert flows
Modifications to flows have always been immediate. In Switch 12, you can choose to save or revert a flow.
