Hello everyone! With today’s release you’ll see a new and improved way to handle errors in your Dropsource apps. The To Do list that was on the left of the editor has been replaced by a new Error button and panel you can access at the top right.
We’ve updated the format and content of error messages to make the information clearer and easier to process. You’ll see that each error is listed with an indicator of the relevant components in your app (page, element, request etc) and that we’ve included brief instructions to address each error. You can keep the error panel open at the same time as other modals, so you can continue to see the info displayed as you work to resolve an error.
Our engineers have also extended the error reporting functionality to provide information about build errors (errors you encounter after hitting the Test button, when Dropsource is writing and compiling your app). This should increase the number of cases where you are able to solve your own build fails instead of having to engage with support and potentially wait for a response - essentially empowering you to fix more of your own issues and keep moving forward on your projects.
For more info see the updated error handling section in the help center.
Hopefully this will all give you more control over your ability to make progress on your projects, finding and fixing errors as you go. Having tried it already myself I’ve found it to be much more helpful. Let us know what you think!
