Forge Communication - Application Taxonomy Updated

Hello OutSystems Community!


This week we would like to share that we have reviewed the Applications sub-categorization in Forge for everyone.


We listen to your feedback about the changes needed to improve Application findability, filtering, and classification. Therefore, based on user research, the team has:

  • Reviewed some of the Applications sub-categories taxonomy for the sake of clarity;

  • Revisited the current 200 Forge Applications to guarantee they have the proper classification and reduce the number of "Others" (previously around 1/3 of the total);

  • Updated the upload process to consider the new taxonomy.


The updated App sub-categories are as follows:

  • Assets & inventory management

  • Compliance

  • Consumer apps

  • Content & marketing

  • Customer service

  • Development tools

  • Events & scheduling

  • Field services

  • Finance

  • Helpdesk & support

  • Human resources

  • Operations & logistics

  • Productivity & utilities

  • Sales

  • Workflow & processes

  • Other use cases


The team did everything in the back-office and there is no action required for the Application owners. If you believe your application is miscategorized, you can update the application sub-category the same way as before.


Thank you all for the continuous feedback and willingness to push the community forward!
