      Hi Jocelyn.... Thanks for this. Have some questions around Fiori groups/spaces in 2021.

      1. Can Fiori groups still be used in the 2021 version or does the customer have to start using Fiori Spaces?
      2. Can customers who are upgrading from an older version to 2021 still continue to use Fiori groups in 2021?
      3. When is Fiori groups expected to be decommissioned?

      Please advise.

      Thanks

      Ranjit
