As valued App Builders, we are excited to introduce you to our improved layout in your trusted App Studio.
We value all of your feedback over the past months and have been dedicated to ensuring your Zero Code App build experience is as effective as you are.
As all of you know, we've been hard at work giving you an ever-growing list of features to make all of your business processes run smoother. We want you to be able to find every utility quickly at your fingertips.
One big part of building an App is to ensure that it drives what it was intended for. To start an App build we encourage defining what the App will be used for, which parts of your process it will improve and how you can measure its success.
So.. our new App Guide Folder will allow you to set the KPI's in order for you to measure the success of your App and also allow you to look back, to give yourself a pat on the back, in recognition of achieving those goals with ease.
Our most valuable advice to any App Builder setting out on the journey of digitising their business process on Softools is to 'whiteboard it out' in a Swim Lane Diagram, or other proven process evaluation method. Get everyone in a room, hash out all the necessary components and then upload the Process and System Diagram so you can always refer back to the essential deliverables.
We know when solutions get complex, that it's key to understand how your processes interact. With our new App Guide, you will now be able to see if any App has data that feeds up to those valuable aggregated views, which the valued Stakeholders need to see how well your team are performing. See which parent Apps are taking your data to those all-important corporate views.
Now let's group together Fields, Templates and Forms. These were previously split out into separate folders, but they all work together to give your Users their instruction on how to carry out the business process at hand. 'Fields' capture your data, 'Templates' group them into the steps to go through and 'Forms' give bigger distinction on the areas of focus. So, as app builders, let's not keep them apart, as they all work together to drive home the direction you want your users to take.
