Today, we’ve released our sample data generator (aka « mockup data »).
What’s this ?
When you build a new form for an application, the next step is to build the various lists (views, filters… name it like you want) you need to display your data.
Problem: at this point, you don’t have any data created with this new form!
So, you usually end up creating manually some sample data for your views, and as it’s not a funny task, you’re creating 2 or 3 records as fast as you can (« test », 123, « abc », …) and you have to do it again when your form is evolving.
Now, this is an old story: once you have built (or modified) your form, you simply right-click it to display the context menu, and you can choose our brand new option « Generate some test data » :
This option will automatically generate data according to your form setup, and of course, you can also clean up the sample data by using the « Delete the test data » option.
And once again, a simple tool will save you time!
