Feature details

Remember the last used app

Model-driven apps have been updated to remember the last app used thereby reducing the need to choose one in the apps list. The last app will be used if an app isn't specified in the URL. For example, use of the last app can happen when opening the organization URL or when opening a generated URL to a specific entity record. The first time opening the URL without specifying an app will still prompt the user, but subsequent opens will use the last app if an app has not been provided. If a user has only one app then that app becomes the last app, which results in no user prompt. This will improve user productivity by removing clicks when getting started with a session.

  Updated app message bar visuals and new API

Visuals for the existing app message bar where updated to align with the form message bar appearance. Model-driven apps now have new APIs to show app level messages which remain visible while navigating. The API allows flexibility for the type of message. For example, an app can set a message to be user dismiss-able for information messages or set a message to be not dismiss-able for more permanent messages. The API also supports removing specific messages if they don't apply.
