We encourage our customers to explore the feature while keeping in mind the below limitations.



There are certain limitations to what the AI feature can implement in your app based on the prompt provided. Below are some example app customizations that the feature will not implement in your app if requested:

  • Table, Field, & Page Settings

  • Field Validation & Conditional Rules

  • Record, Page, Email, Submit, & Display Rules

  • Tasks

Note:  Please note that the above list is not exhaustive and is shared to provide examples of what the feature will not produce.


Prompt Tips for the Best Results

When entering a prompt, you have a limit of 400 characters, so it's recommended to be as general and concise as you can when describing your app requirements.

Here are a few tips on using the prompt:

  • If you know that you will need specific tables to hold the data you will be importing, you can input the tables you need directly in the prompt. For example, you could input something like: "I have data on student, staff, class, and enrollment details".

  • You can also share what specific fields/field types you will need. For example, "Create a number field named "Class Year".
  • Sharing a general idea of what your role is and who will be using the app is suggested. If you have specifics on different user types for your app, you can share those details to allow the feature to create user roles for you. 

  • You can enter details about what you require in the Live App, such as reports, grids, and forms.
