Recent Changes On Protogrid

Sonja Blum on 2018-05-18
We are happy to announce that Protogrid Version 1.5 and 1.6 were rolled out in the first half of this year. There were lots of small changes and improvements, together with some larger extensions of functionality.
It is now possible to hide elements such as warnings or advanced actions! You might want to hide them in order to not confuse less experienced users or make it harder to perform some thoughtless actions.
Hide different elements To hide some specific elements, all you need to do is creating a new client Script Library and link it to your Default Card. You find all information in our Wiki. Additionally, the following extensions might be interesting for you:
  • Larger views and more entries in lists let you work even faster
  • API-requests were optimized to reduce latency
  • Servers are used more efficiently thanks to optimized architecture
  • You can now also find related cards when searching
Try the new functionality now in your Protogrid Environment and increase your benefits.

New Protogrid Team Member

Sonja Blum on 2017-12-15
Since this month, the Protogrid Team is supported by a new economic expert. We are pleased to introduce Sandro Andermatt to you:

Sandro Andermatt

Tell us a little bit about your background.

I am currently studying Business Administration at the University of Berne with a major in Information Systems. Last year I also did an internship in the field of project and process management.

What do you like best about Protogrid?

I like the approach that you can also develop your own application as a non-programmer. In general, I find the idea of RAD (Rapid Application Development) very exciting. I'm also thrilled that Protogrid is cross-platform. I think managing different platforms and operating systems are a common problem for companies. Protogrid offers a fresh, solution-oriented approach.

How are you taking Protogrid forward?

As project manager, I support the customer in the development of his individual application. At the same time I support the development of standard apps and modules, which are made available to all users.

What technical innovation do you want for 2018?

I would like to see laser keyboards integrated into tablets, so that no additional keyboards are necessary.
