New, Redesigned Application Builder

Dear CommCare Users,

Go to “Applications” on CommCareHQ to check out the new look of our
application builder!

The redesign was based on a careful review of what we’ve learned over time
both from your direct feedback and from watching users interact with the
application builder. Hopefully you will find creating and editing
applications easier and more intuitive.

Thanks to everyone who has given us feedback and reported issues! As
always, your questions, comments, and feedback are welcome and appreciated.

Below is an outline of the major changes.

Design

  • The settings, multimedia, and languages sections moved from the
    application page to different sections in the left-hand toolbar
  • Settings have been renamed to make more sense and re-categorized based
    on what device you are using and what the settings do
  • The “Release Manager” button has been renamed “Deploy” and moved to
    the lefthand toolbar
  • Application copy and delete are now in the lefthand toolbar below the
    modules and forms
  • In both modules and forms, the case configuration and form
    configuration are now in separate tabs
  • The form action buttons have been simplified. The more important
    buttons, like “edit”, are now much more prominent
  • Throughout the application builder, the infrequently used advanced
    features are set aside under clearly marked “advanced” sections

Renaming

··· * * We removed some older, overly technical language in favor of more descriptive names. Apologies if it is confusing to switch over – we think this will be better in the long run!

Application Builder:

  • Chatterbox Option (CommCare Settings) -> Multiple Questions Per Screen
  • Release Manager -> Deploy
  • Label (on case details in module) -> Display Text
  • CommCare Binary (in release manager) -> CommCare Version
  • Make new build (in release manager) -> Make new version

Form designer:

  • Data Node -> Hidden Value
  • Single Select Question -> Multiple Choice (Single Answer)
  • Multiple Select Question -> Multiple Choice (Multiple Answers)
  • Add Select Option -> Add Choice
  • Constraint ID -> Validation Message ID
  • Constraint Error -> Validation Error Message

Thanks,
Amelia

Wowser this is fantastic and a great move forward.

Thanks!

Hi,

I’ve just done some revisions to my form using the new application designer
which is great.

However, it seems that the option to have a ‘label’, i.e. just some text
that is to be read and doesn’t require an answer, has disappeared. All my
’labels’ have turned in to text questions with the keyboard showing up.

Can labels be reinstated please as they are rather helpful!

Thanks

Jenny

OK have done. When I wanted to create a new label I couldn’t see it in the
list of question options either.

Hi Jennifer,

that is to be read and doesn’t require an answer, has disappeared. All my
’labels’ have turned in to text questions with the keyboard showing up.

I just checked and I am still able to use labels fine. Could you please
"report an issue" from your form, which will give our developers context to
look further into the problem?

thanks,
Cory

I’m not seeing this. I see Label right after “Multiple Choice (Single
Answer)”. Can you send a screenshot of what you’re seeing?
