Data Sets in Leads, Items, Pricing Apps
You would be aware of the Data Access Sets in Apptivo, which restricts access to required individuals so that the records assigned to them can be accessed and worked on and not the remaining records. Data Sets in Apptivo gives you the ability to provide access level privilege of object records to a specific group of people. In this release, you can find this feature implemented in the Leads App, Pricing App, and the Items App.
You can take a look at the image of Data Sets in Leads App.

Associated Object Reports
In the Contacts App, you can now get the Associated Object Reports which is the brand new implementation of this release. This may include the reports of the Associated Activities too. You can customize the fields of the Customer App by associating them using the “Nested Criteria” feature along with the Activities that should be visible in the Associated Reports.
For Instance: Consider the Contacts App. Imagine you are the Marketing Manager of the company and want to view the reports of the Contacts, their activities along with an interested category of Customers, say for example IT. You can Make use of the Associated Object Reports to achieve them.
Approve and Reject Estimates
Once you procure customer requirements, the next step is to create an estimate. You send the estimate to the corresponding customer for his approval. Now you can Approve and Reject the Estimate in the Estimate Overview Page once the email is sent, rather approving or rejecting from the link sent in the email.

Edit the Project End Dates
You can now edit and update the start date and end date (due date) of the project in the Overview page. To update the project duration, you can also update task duration. This is because the Project’s start date and end date is driven by task dependencies. An enhancement in this release is that you can disable the toggle to Set the Start and End date of the Projects from the Settings, you can edit the dates straight from the Project Overview page.

One of the major implementations in this release is that if you change the Property Stage in the Properties App, it will get reflected in the Property Information section in Opportunities App.
The filtering in the Opportunities for the Properties status is disabled if Sales stage is changed to Closed Won or Closed Lost.
Updation in Items App while Importing
A noteworthy enhancement in this release is that you can not only create items individually or you can import the list of items into Items App with a CSV spreadsheet file but also Update an existing item while importing the items in the Items App.
