Generate customized application documentation in App Studio (8.3)

Updated on May 3, 2021

Provide stakeholders with high-level information about your application by creating an application overview document in App Studio. Customize the application overview by selecting specific chapters, so that the document contains only relevant information. You can include information such as case types, roles, or features. Highlight the most important items by changing the order of the chapters in the document. Generate a Microsoft Word file that you can share with stakeholders or other application developers.

The following figure shows selections for an outline in the Generate overview document dialog box:

You can provide insight into a data model in your application by exporting the data model into a Word or Excel file. The file contains all the information about the data model, so that you can quickly check case type or data type details. For example, you can check what information is collected within each case type and what fields a case type contains.
