New Documentation System coming to Alpha Anywhere

Over the past several months a team at Alpha has been working on a complete overhaul.

We have taken all of our materials from the existing help system, the wiki, and other sources and have combined them into a new system.

The system is just about in Beta, and should be ready for you to use shortly. We’ll send an email to our full mailing list when it’s ready.

The system features ultra fast elastic search for quickly finding pages, a breadcrumb menu, and many other cool features.

The key benefit is you will be able to find what you are looking for quickly!

There will also be feedback links on each page, so users can flag items for correcting that are unclear or inaccurate.

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
