Forge - Mandatory Descriptions for Forge entries.

Community Forge
Working on it
expected delivery in Q3 2018

I really appreciate all the people that submit to the Forge. it is a very helpful tool for me. However, many Forge components have names that do not describe what they do. If everybody submitting to the Forge is required to enter a short description it would be very helpful. Now you need to download and open it up to see what it is doing. This can be time consuming.

Hi David , 

During this and next quarter, we will work hard to grow the forge into a marketplace of high-quality components.

We will:

  • Review supported components based on usage and criticality
  • Provide an additional trusted level, for open-source components curated by OutSystems
  • Clean low-quality components from the forge, either improving or dropping

So I have set the status to “Working on it”. We expect it to be ready during Q3. I’ll post an update once it’s done!
