This blog post covers them in a summarized manner, read along and add value to your AppGyver projects with these exciting features.

Introduction

SAP AppGyver is a no-code solution part of SAP BTP! Please refer to this tutorial to kick start your Low-code/No-code journey!

I have been working on Appgyver since the day it got acquired by SAP and I must admit that this tool becomes powerful to a greater extent with every release. Many features are on the future release pipeline and we all are excited about it, check out the product roadmap to know more.

Let’s explore the latest development in AppGyver together –

Feature 1: Collaboration capability 

Starting with the most awaited feature – Project sharing between teams!

Yes, we can finally now collaborate on a single AppGyver project and this is how it can be done –

Launch the SAP AppGyver App from BTP and land in the LCNC lobby. Click on “…” for the project you want to collaborate on or share.

You can manage the access as well with the help of these options while sharing. Every option will give different rights to the users and this makes sharing and collaboration super easy.

Feature 2: Release Management

Another exciting feature I noticed recently is version control in the Appgyver project – we can use release management to create different releases like development, testing, and production. The advantage of using releases is known to all such as separate branches used for production and also easy rollback with tracking.

This is how you can do that for any AppGyver project-

Open the launch tab of the app in Composer Pro editor

Launch tab – Composer Pro

Open the “release” section and click on “opt-in release management”

Once the release management is opted-in, you would be able to see different releases like development, testing, and production with the versions available for each.
