Designing & Building a Better Form - New Training Module

Discover best practices for designing and implementing applications.
Understand how to create an application blueprint, how best to implement features, and how to better present information and content to your end users.

In this module you’ll be introduced to some best practices for designing and implementing an application. We’ll be discussing how to create an application blueprint, how best to implement features that accurately capture data, and how you should present information and content to the end user.

We’ll be doing this by creating a questionnaire for reviewing restaurants. First, the user will need to select the restaurant they want to review, after which they will be asked a series of questions about their dining experience. When they have completed the questionnaire, they will be shown a summary of their responses, from where they can confirm submission of their review and receive a notification that their review was successfully posted.

Introduction to Data Providers - New Training Module

Expand your knowledge of Data Sources by creating a connection to external data, then learn to use different techniques to fetch and display that data.

In today's world, data is everywhere - KnowledgeKube included. At this point, you should already have some familiarity with how KnowledgeKube can process data - from single values captured by questions, to more complex data assembled and parsed using formats such as Character-Separated Values (CSV). In part two of the KnowledgeKube Training Academy course you were taught how simple string data, structured as CSV, can be interpreted as though it were a database table, then used to drive form content such as grids.
 
You also learned how to save the data collected within a KnowledgeKube form, allowing that data to persist and be recalled for later use by a tabular interface known as a Model Data Browser. All of these things are extremely useful, and serve as an introduction to the concept of structured, re-usable data. But the true power of KnowledgeKube's data layer lies in its ability to connect to, and interact with, a vast range of databases, including those completely separate to its native environment.
 
In this module, you'll be expanding what you've already learned about data sources by creating a Connection to some external data, then using a few different techniques to fetch and display that data. We'll be using a relatively simple type of read-only data source for this module, namely a Rich Site Summary (RSS) feed, and the resulting application will allow users to view the data, but not edit it.
