Designing your user interface

Suggest edit Updated on November 15, 2021

Before you start creating the user interface in your application, learn about the available tools, best practices, and the basic principles that drive user experience design.

By learning about the available templates and the many tools and solutions that are available out-of-the box, you can make building your UI a low-effort but high-effect experience. Follow the best practices in UI design to ensure consistent results throughout your application.

As you get familiar with the key paradigms that govern an efficient UI, building low-maintenance and future-proof portals that cater to specific roles in your organization, becomes intuitive.
