You asked and we listened. ServiceNow is working to add more code examples to our API documentation - but we need your help. One of the most frequently asked improvements for our API documentation is to add more code examples. We hear you and are requesting your code examples to add to our API documentation.

One of the new Rome release features that I have personally been most excited about, Mobile App Builder, is now available! Built on the Now Experience UI Framework, the organizational layout and ease of navigation in the Mobile App Builder facilitates a faster and more intuitive creation of ServiceNow mobile components. Some benefits are: Organization of records in a hierarchical layout of records for easy access and reference. Streamlining of mobile configurations by: guiding users to appropriate record relationships, preventing invalid configuration choices, and auto-populating fields when creating child-record relationships.
