Beta 5 is coming!

Try it here on April 28th! Starting with a new visual design, easier low fidelity prototype creation, we put in this release features that our users asked for: form factor and browser (Firefox, IE11) support for User Studies, a new discussion thread when prototyping, an icon picker, Fiori Smart Templates…

What’s new and exciting about Beta 5?

Full list of what has been done will be available in the online help under your profile icon.

We’ve created new videos for the most exciting features:

New Images and Hotspots experience

Working with images and hotspots has never been so simple. We removed everything that was slowing the building of the interactive prototype. Now, all you need to do is upload your images in the Prototype Editor, draw your Hotspots and set their destinations – working on all images at once. See it in action!

Smart Templates Floorplans

Smart templates provide a framework for generating UIs at runtime based on metadata annotations and predefined templates for the most used application patterns. The goals are to ensure design consistency, keep apps up to date with evolving design guidelines, and reduce the amount of front-end code for building SAP Fiori apps.

Important dates

After months of hard work, Beta 5 will be rolled-out beginning April 27, and we should be back online the April 28. The team is working to make the transition to Beta 5 as smooth and short as possible. Thank you for your patience!
