New in this release is a “Change Record” X2Workflow Action. This new workflow action allows users to switch to a related record during a workflow execution. Users can use it to do things like update a “total sales” amount on a Contact when a Quote is marked as won or otherwise update related records in response to X2Wofkflow triggers.

Additionally a new “Mass Execute Macro” action is available. The record list grid view now supports mass execution of Macro-type workflows. Users can select records using the record grid view checkboxes and click the new “Execute Macro” option to run a Macro-type workflow on multiple records at the same time.
