The March rollout of ActionTiles continues to progress smoothly, and we have declared this offspring of SmartTiles to be healthy, popular, and adorable!
Access to ActionTiles is still rationed via an email list for Invitation Code requests. This is to ensure the highest quality new user experiences. The turnaround for invitations has accelerated substantially – You should expect your invitation within 4 or 5 days at most.
But… the ability to install SmartTiles is still available through April 1st, 2017 (i.e., the link to the SmartTiles SmartApp installer is live just for a couple more weeks). The SmartTiles Support / Help Desk will be closed after April 15th.
All currently installed instances of the “SmartTiles (Connect)” SmartApp (green, blue, and legacy editions) will remain operational until further notice. We know that you may have invested substantial effort in configuring your Dashboards and need time to switch over to ActionTiles. We have not set a road-map of providing various types of replacement functionality for the complex CSS customization features of SmartTiles. We hope to offer several compelling updates to ActionTiles before announcing SmartTiles’s final deprecation date. Please consider this to be your “far advance notice” of that eventuality.
