The look and feel and UI is one of the first things an end-user will notice about your application. The first few moments are make or break – will the user get frustrated and give up, or will they instantly fall in love and contribute to viral success? As we improve the UI/UX in AgilePoint NX v8.0, and update the platform to a much more easily navigable, beautiful look and feel, we’re also stepping up our game to help you create beautiful and inviting interfaces right out of the box.
Starting with our next release – AgilePoint NX v8.0, we are shipping a new, beautiful theme that’s available as a default style. Sounds exciting, right? But you might have questions – and we’ve addressed the most common ones below.
‘What happens to my existing apps?’
Many of our customers have a global style guide they must adhere to, and are wondering how this will impact apps built on prior versions of AgilePoint NX. If that’s you, don’t stress! Your existing apps will not be impacted by migrating to AgilePoint NX v8.0 and will continue to look and work the same way they did prior to moving to AgilePoint NX v8.0.
‘How do I upgrade my older apps to the new look and feel?’
The good news is, switching to the new look and feel is as easy as a single click! By navigating to Form Settings, you can easily select an option to apply the new theme. While it’s simple to move to the new theme, as with any change, we still recommend a thorough test of your applications before it is made available to rest of the users.
‘I have a global style, or application specific style applied to my applications, how does this impact me?’
While all new apps created will use the newer, more modern style by default, this behavior can always be easily overridden by using AgilePoint’s global CSS option, or through application-specific styling. In other words, nothing changes over how you’ve customized the look and feel of your user interfaces previously.
‘What if I want to switch back to the older theme? Is that an option?’
Of course! Using the new theme is completely optional. If you’d like to switch back after trying the new theme, you can do so at any time.
If you’re like us, you’re going to instantly like what you see with our new base theme, and we’re excited to see what we can build together. As always, AgilePoint is a platform that is driven by your feedback, so let us know your thoughts at any time.
