Queries are now a lot easier to create and configure. The query editor provides a visual experience for creating queries right from an expression rule.

Create an Interface Form with the Click of a Button

With this release, not only have we updated our interface templates for pages and forms, we've also added a handy builder button that allows you to create a form from a data type.

Integration SDK

We're excited to announce the release of the Integration SDK, which provides new ways for developers to extend Appian's low-code integration capabilities. The Integration SDK provides all the tools, documentation, and examples you'll need to succeed at building plug-ins.

UX Design Guide: Presenting Information Clearly
