      Nice blog, and really explains the BAS low-code tools.

      Did you mean for this to be in the Low-code No-Code contest? You tagged it as such but it has no AppGyver and you did not really follow the rules. Let me know what you intended. If it is not a part of the contest, please remove the tag. Thanks.

      Hi, Thank you for this great news! I am really looking forward to introduce this new feature to our customers.

      I have a question - are we able to have calculated field in the service layer? (e.g.) We have both FirstName and LastName properties and want to concatenate these into "FullName". I tried it on CAP LCNC Tool on BAS however it does not seem to be possible.
