In Q4, we released a new version of IQX AppBuilder for SAP Fiori.  We are pleased to share some highlights of the latest release below, more technical details can be found in the release notes, including all enhancements and improvements.

Email Templates and Configuration

To accelerate and simplify the implementation of email notifications during the various phases of a given workflow, a brand-new email template component was added to the Process Flow designer.

  • Emails can be configured and sent directly through the Process Designer without the need to write any ABAP code.
  • Master Templates provide a way to create consistent looking email communications without the need to build your style and layout into every email notification.
  • Multiple sections can be added to a template which can be configured to only show under certain data conditions or could repeat when a table or list of items need to be included in the email body.
  • Live preview of your HTML formatted email is provided based on existing requests from your application.
