Thank you for this consolidated list of tutorials. I have completed many of them and look forward to trying out the ones that I haven't. The quality of the tutorials is superb, and I have enjoyed the experience.
Thanks for the feedback Shantanu Sharma
Thank you for sharin the details. Most of the tutorials are really nice to get started in SPA.
One improvement which I would like to see in SPA is - more features and capability to design Forms using the In-Built Form features. Currently it is very limited and supports only very basic forms.
I am currently implementing an Automation for a client which is triggered by a User Form. This Form (UI) will have some basic validations. Since the in-built Form does not support such features, we may have to fall back to developing a screen using Build App or in Fiori and call the Automation artifact using REST API end points.
Hi Sandip Agarwalla
I will create a feature request for the Forms field validations. Thanks for your feedback.
I will create feature request for Form Fields validation.Thanks for your feedback.
Apart from Field Validations, if we can add few more features - that would simplify the development a lot
We will be soon releasing Tables UI control in Forms
Tables in the Forms are released. Please find it in March Learning Content blogpost
