Learn how you (developer, engineer, end-user, domain expert, project manager, etc.) can contribute to the creation of apps that provide real value to your work.
When using your apps, users sometimes get a “something went wrong” message. However, it’s not always 100% clear what went wrong and how it can be solved. That is why from now on, users can report errors whenever a problem occurs. Consequently, a report including all relevant information (e.g. error stack, used parameters) is sent to the developer. This not only makes it easier to debug your apps in production but also ensures users that the issue will be worked on!

For some time now, we have been working on gradually giving admins more control over their environments. Previously, admins could already create workspaces and add users to their environment. Now, it’s also possible to add and remove developers and specify publishing rights!
This makes starting with development much quicker for new users after they’ve been added to an environment and assigned developer rights, and takes away any security risks in case of developer offboarding, as access and publishing rights can either be granted or revoked immediately.
Soon, you can stop users from going to the next step in an application whenever they’ve entered invalid input. Additionally, you can annotate which fields are invalid to optimally guide users towards a solution and prevent any problems caused earlier on from occurring in later steps. Annotation of invalid fields can also be applied to views, leading to better guidance in case a view can not be calculated.
