New Builder FAQ

Danielle Kellogg Updated by Danielle Kellogg

How can I see recent updates made to the new Builder?

You can follow along with the latest updates, new features and fixes on our What’s New page here.

Is the new Builder available for Private Server and HIPAA accounts?

While we plan on rolling out access to the new Builder to all plans as soon as we can. For now, customers on Private Servers and HIPAA accounts do not have direct access and should reach out to support in the meantime, to discuss alternative options.

What if I’m already in the middle of building my app?

The new Builder can be toggled on and off on existing apps and the core features of Knack have not changed in the new Builder. So its possible to continue building your app within the new Builder or even just quickly take a look around if you would prefer to finish your app in the old Builder.

Is the new Builder stable?

Yes, the new builder is stable, however (as with most products) we are always continuously making updates to add improvements, fix issues and add new features on a regular basis. Further, our team is dedicated to rapid release cycle and prioritizing issues that may arise in the new Builder.

When is the new Builder complete?

The new Builder contains all of the same features as the old Builder. With that said this update has set the foundation to continue adding new features going forward. So while the core update is "complete", we will continue to make improvements and add new features steadily. You can follow along with updates, new features and fixes on our Whats New page here.

How do you create multiple columns within a view?

You might be wondering where the group setting is for selecting 1, 2, or 3 columns for fields in a view.

In the new builder, multiple columns can be created within a view by dragging a new field into a new column area. You'll see a dark line indicating whether the field will be dropped in an existing column or a new column. This matches the new feature that allows you to show views side-by-side on a page now.
