OpenText AppWorks: Improved Usability and Tight Integration


In today’s competitive environment, it is essential for any company to offer dynamic digital experiences. It’s easy to say, but it’s not easy to do. Companies face content silos, separate processes and a lack of transparency and insight. You also need agility to quickly adapt to unexpected opportunities, competitive pressures, and new insights.

These business challenges won’t go away, but efficient, streamlined processes and low-code applications that can be quickly built, iterated, and deployed can help you adapt to them. This is where OpenText AppWorks comes in – and the features of Release 16, Enhancement Pack 6 (EP6).


The highlights are:

  • A simplified view for inexperienced developers with advanced configurations that are available on demand when needed
  • An optimized experience with fewer clicks to complete tasks and accelerate development
  • Intuitive use of building blocks that are available within entities for a simplified view, that are also grouped by functions and that can be collapsed for a targeted display
  • Improved search and copy capabilities for faster starts to expand or create new applications
  • Users can quickly search for and copy forms, lists, layouts, etc.
  • The embedded help provides instant contextual guidance that developers can use to create the right things the first time.

The dialog for adding relations to entities is a good example of how this release provides more guidance. The right side of the dialog describes the different types of relationships so that the person developing the application can choose the appropriate option.

Other highlights are:

  • Rendering and performance improvements
  • Rich media support, including images, tables, and another formatting
  • Right-to-left language support, simplified configuration
