Appian Documentation

17.1

This release brings a host of exciting new features.


Modern Interfaces

Appian interfaces are more usable, responsive, and look fantastic. With this release, we're rolling out modern interfaces that you can see in your existing SAIL interfaces as soon as you upgrade.

Interface and Process Modeler Integration

We took all the manual labor out of connecting SAIL interfaces to process models. You can now create and select interfaces directly from nodes, and map inputs to variables within a dropdown.

Data Design Improvements

In an effort to make the XSD file obsolete, you can now create a new CDT from an existing table directly in Appian, and can change some common properties like field length.

New Course on Building a Record

New this month is a tutorial on building a record! Watch the videos, follow along with the written instructions, or do both as you build a record. At the end of the tutorial, you’ll have a fully configured List View and Summary View.

New Course on Appian Essentials

To coincide with the new year, we’re introducing a new course on Academy Online: Appian Essentials! In this course, you’ll get an introduction to Appian and see how companies are using Appian to revolutionize their business practices.

Update Whenever Because You Can

We added a new page all about backward compatibility with Appian so you can learn what it is, why we did it, and how you can take advantage of it.
