Once the application has been created, you are automatically taken to the next step in the process – designing the interface to collect the data. This is the screen that will be visible to the end-users once they login to the application.
In this portion, you are greeted with a blank canvas with around 36 different components on the left-hand side to help you get started on building the form. All you need to do is drag a component, from the sidebar on the left-hand side, to the canvas and get started.
As mentioned, there are 36 different components on the Interface Builder screen to help you create the compete form to collect the data required for the application. Components include text boxes (which can be configured to capture details like text, integers, strings, etc.), dropdown menus, auto-complete dropdowns (which filter the choices as the user is typing), radio buttons, tables, calculated field, attachment field (configurable to define the type of attachment, size, etc.) and many more to help you create the right interface to satisfy your business needs.
The interface can also be customized, unlike a template, to define horizontal/vertical sections, size of various sections, the alignment, etc. Once the form is created, there are few options available on the screen to help you visualize the look and feel better.
The platform creates responsive applications that can be viewed on any device without having to design separately for the same. There are a few options at the top of the screen which when selected, can show you how the interface will look when on a Laptop/PC, Tablet or a mobile screen. Apart from this, the top right-hand side, shows you the status of the current application and where you are currently. The next steps like Process Design, Form Reports, Graphical Dashboards, etc. are shown in red if they are not completed. The completed steps in the application building process are shown in green to enable to users understand where they are in the application building process, the steps completed, and the pending steps left to create the application.
