Multiline Hero Attribute and Sorted List

Today’s release brings with it support for multiple lines in Hero Attribute tiles and sorted lists throughout the app!

Multiline Hero Attribute Tiles

This release includes a ‘Text Overflow’ option on the Hero Attribute layout to allow changing between Truncate (default) or Wrap. This enables the type of multi line content noted in this thread: Hero Tiles - Keep Text from Truncating

This opens up some interesting possibilities when used with with rules that set custom attributes on a device. For example, showing a summarized status:

Or being able to display long bits of text like Track Descriptions from a music player:

Sorted Lists

Lists throughout the app are now sorted alphabetically. This should include all the lists throughout the app including the Dashboard list, Rule List, Resources List, Add Item, etc.

Note for Free Tier Users : We renamed the ‘first’ dashboard in from the previously unsorted list so it stays at the top as your free dashboard. You can always delete other dashboards if you want to change which dashboard is your free dashboard.

Other Enhancements

  • Improved wording of Rule Trigger operators to better reflect that the rule is triggered by an event / state change (eg. ‘is’ → ‘changes to’)
  • Only display less than / greater than operators in Rules if the attribute is a number
  • Other bug fixes and enhancements

How do you set custom attributes? Is that done in the underlying system or your rule engine?

You can either do it in the underlying system, our Rule Engine, or a third party rule engine.

For example, in the linked thread, the first person is using WebCoRE to set custom attributes in SmartThings. And the second person is using Hubitat with either the built-in Hubitat Rule Machine or SharpTools Rule Engine.
