Business value

Writing code in Visual Studio Code is efficient, but designing and adjusting page layout can be cumbersome without having a faithful and visual overview of what the page looks like and how it behaves.

Feature details

With this release, developers can also use the Designer to:

  • Adjust actions and action groups on a Role Center.
  • Adjust the navigation menu items, grouping and subgrouping on a Role Center, including building up the menu from scratch by bookmarking relevant pages.
  • Double-click to autofit a column on a list page.
  • Define filters on a list and save them as a named view.
