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.
One Pattern Page to Rule Them All!
In 18.4, Appian introduced design patterns you could drag directly from the component palette into your interface. To accompany them, we wrote a new kind of doc that goes beyond simply providing the pattern, and includes a breakdown of the pattern expression so you can quickly learn how best to change it to suit your interface, and newer users can learn the what and why of the design.
