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.
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.
Check Your Knowledge
The training team has been working hard to increase interactivity in Academy Online courses. New courses will now include different types of exercises, such as quizzes and games to increase user engagement.
