HCL Domino Leap delivers business transformation by enabling citizen developers to solve business challenges and drive workflow efficiencies through process and data automation. Domino Leap offers the advantage of shorter development cycles, reduced development costs, and the ability to make everyone in the organization a developer. Our Domino Leap 1.1 release provides some exciting new features to extend an organization’s ability to become even more agile in responding to everyday challenges.
Previously known as Domino Volt, the new product name — Domino Leap — is being changed to avoid confusion with HCL Volt MX. The new name also better aligns with its identical twin – HCL Leap. The two are essentially the same, and in fact share the same basic source code. The only difference is that Domino Leap runs on the Domino platform and provides some additional features which only make sense to Domino customers.
New features included in this release fall into three major categories: building more sophisticated workflows, reusing your work, and integration with Domino.
Building More Sophisticated Workflows
Workflow Branching — A new set of features for visually designing workflow branches has been added. You can specify any number of branches and rules which dictate when that branch should be followed. For example, a “second approver” branch might be taken when the “amount is greater than 10,000.” Each branch can have its own activities for notification, assignment and service calls.
Workflow Reminder Notifications — Reminder notifications can be set up based on a cadence preceding a due date. The due date can be a selected date, a date from the form, or based on how many days the form has been in the workflow stage. Past due notifications can also be set up. Notifications help ensure organizational focus and shorter process cycle time.
Reusing Your Work and Productivity
New HTML Editor — A real HTML editor now appears when you add HTML fragment widgets to your app. The editor properly highlights and formats your syntax, making it much easier to work with.
Integration With Domino
Domino Rich Text Roundtripping — Added ability to write rich text from Domino Leap to an existing Domino DB with rich text fields. Leap is able read the contents of Domino-rich text fields and put that content into a Leap rich text field. This includes any file attachments that are stored in the Domino field. The content can then be edited and updated back to Domino. New Domino documents can also be added from Leap with rich text content. This essentially allows you to create a Leap app that leverages the Domino app by providing a new modern web interface.
Domino Leap enables organizations to give nontechnical users the ability to build applications without writing a single line of code — and up to 70% faster. Leap also makes it easy to develop powerful, secure, and enterprise-grade, workflow-based applications. While it runs on Domino, you don’t need any specialized Domino or IT skills.
