The latest release of Domino Volt, v1.0.4, is available for customers to download from the HCL license and download portal and to try out in the Domino Volt Sandbox. New features include the data grid and rich text items on the palette, in-place editing of text in design, a new overall design, and a new Link design client and SAP adapter.

Watch our latest webinar showing how these features enable marketing business users to create their own apps — Be an IT Hero: Empower Your Marketing Teams with Domino Volt.

The release delivers on the promise of “building apps … not just forms.”  The data grid in combination with app pages and navigation make it a much easier to address many application scenarios.  Think of the new release as allowing you to build apps which include forms – vs – building forms that look like apps. Many apps can be created in half the time and in many cases without writing a line of code. On top of that, they’ll have improved function and user experience.

Here’s a rundown of the new features and you can view the features in action here.

The data grid is the star of the release. It gives you a way to build views of form data on app pages or forms that can be used for all kinds of scenarios such as: 

  • Display the contents of a catalog for purposes of making a selection   
  • Show a task list or a summary of “my requests” 
  • Provide a dashboard summary which you can filter and sort
  • Create a list which allows you to conveniently select and update the underlying records 


    Example of the Data Grid used for catalog selection and my requests

Rich-text data input lets you build forms that allow users to enter and format text, tables and links. They can also paste content directly from sources like Microsoft Word.


Adding a rich text field in design mode 

Also, Domino data services can fetch rich text from Domino and put it the new rich text data field.

In-place text editing frees designers from the properties panel and makes it easier to add and format text content in-place in their apps.


  In-place editing of text 

The new design provides a modern, streamlined experience, with the tabs that were on top moved to the left to be more intuitive. 


New modern design

An updated Link client provides a simpler experience for the Domino Volt admin to build and manage integrations for Domino Volt designers. Plus, the addition of a new SAP adapter makes it possible to set up integration with SAP BAPIs. 

Check out the Domino Volt Showroom for new apps that you can download and import into the Domino Volt Sandbox to see what the new release can do.
