Business value

Makers can accelerate development by adding responsive custom pages in their converged apps while maintaining granular control over design.

Feature details

Custom pages brought the power and control of canvas apps to the model-driven world. Custom pages are now being extended to introduce more tools to support makers creating responsive layouts quickly while still maintaining the precision of canvas apps.
