What’s new updates and releases in DronaHQ: A look back at 2022

As the world of technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, DronaHQ has been at the forefront of innovation, introducing new features and enhancements that make it easier than ever to build and manage internal tools, or enterprise-grade custom apps. 

From enhanced security features to new integrations and a completely new pricing structure, there’s a lot to cover in this retrospective of DronaHQ’s progress in 2022.

So, without further ado, let’s dive in and see what’s new in DronaHQ!

Increase work efficiency using “autogenerate” capabilities

Autogenerate forms and autogenerate CRUD features can greatly increase work efficiency for developers. These features allow for the rapid creation of forms and database interactions, saving valuable time and resources. Not only do they streamline the development process, but they also ensure consistency and reduce the likelihood of errors. By utilizing autogenerated forms and CRUD, developers can focus on more complex and unique tasks, leading to more efficient and effective projects. Autogenerate CRUD is currently available for only MySQL databases, performing CRUD operations on large MySQL databases is made very easy with autogenerate CRUD, saving the developer time and effort.  Overall, these tools can be a valuable asset for any development team looking to increase productivity and improve the user experience.

Reverse or repeat the action with undo/redo

When it comes to experimenting with new ideas and strategies, it can be easy to hesitate and hold back out of fear of making a mistake. However, with DronaHQ, you don’t have to worry about that. DronaHQ has an undo/redo feature that allows you to easily undo any changes or mistakes you may have made, giving you the freedom to experiment and try new things without fear of permanently damaging your work. So don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things with DronaHQ – you can always undo or redo any changes you make.

Focus on dates that matter to you with disable dates enhancement

Now let your users focus only on the dates that actually matter. Now in date & time, control disables specific dates. This can be particularly useful in situations where certain dates are not available for scheduling, such as holidays or maintenance periods. By disabling these dates, users are prevented from selecting them and are instead prompted to choose an alternative date. This not only improves the user experience by reducing confusion and errors but also streamlines the scheduling process by ensuring that only valid dates are selected. This feature can be easily implemented and customized to meet the specific needs of your application.

Monitor the status of your connector calls with connector logs

With connector logs, users can understand the status of requests made to one or more connectors. This feature allows users to view detailed logs of all connector requests, including the time of the request, the status of the request, and any relevant error messages. This information can be extremely useful for troubleshooting any issues that may arise with connectors and ensuring that they are functioning properly. Additionally, Connectors’ Logs make it easy to track and monitor the usage of specific connectors, making it a valuable feature for managing and optimizing connector performance.

Improve user experience with enhanced table grid control

Table grid controls are a staple in many applications, and recent enhancements have made them even more powerful and useful. One such enhancement is the ability to reorder and hide columns, allowing users to customize the table to their specific needs and preferences. Additionally, many table grid controls now allow for editable columns, making it easy for users to update data directly within the table. Data filtering, sorting, and the ability to add new rows are also common enhancements, making it easy for users to find and organize the information they need. With these enhancements, the table grid control has become even more versatile and user-friendly, making them an essential control for any application.

Unleash the power of SQL queries on JSON data: Filter data with ease

Now users can filter JSON values by implementing SQL queries on it. Now users can query from various data responses and results, such as a REST API endpoint, Google Sheets connectors, and more which give JSON data, all through SQL -like queries. The ability to use SQL queries to filter JSON values is a game-changer for businesses and organizations that rely on data management, making it a valuable addition to DronaHQ’s already robust feature set.

Eliminate overwrite issues with the studio’s concurrent access feature for shared micro apps

We have a feature in the studio that allows only a single user to edit a microapp that is shared or accessed by multiple users at the same time. It enables different users to access a single app in the builder view, on a common channel, without facing any overwrite or saving issues. This is particularly useful when multiple users may be accessing a single app in its builder view, some may want to develop it further and some may just want to see it only(preview). This could create an overwrite issue but Studio handles this concurrent access to the app smoothly by providing a pop-up of concurrent Access. This pop-up informs all the active users on a single app, that this app is currently being actively edited, along with the email address of the most recent editor. Additionally, users are given two choices: either to switch access or continue.

Secure your app by embedding user credentials

The studio offers the option to embed secure user login credentials in your application. By including user credentials in the public link of your published app, you can ensure that the link can only be accessed by authorized users. Additionally, this also allows for the public link to be dynamic and personalized for different authorized users.
