Designer Guide

Welcome to the eLegere's Designer Guide!

The Designer Guide covers everything about building Applications using the Design Mode in eLegere.


Some operations of the Designer Guide might require one or more permissions from your Admin. Verify with your Admin that you have the permissions required for each operation listed in each section.



Multiple Users will share the same Applications and employ them at the same time. Reading the Using eLegere in a Team from the Get Started is recommended. Using eLegere in a Team explains the Applications' permissions, how to design them for collaborative, and how to manage Users and Groups.

You undertake Designer tasks when you design Applications in eLegere without any knowledge of coding. When you act as Designer, you employ the no-code/low code interface called Design Mode to build different sorts of applications.

Designers can customize any aspect of an application through the Design Mode: columns, data, modules, layout, custom actions, what a User can do, and under what conditions can manipulate data and trigger processes.

After having read the Designer Guide, you will be able to build whatever application you can imagine effortlessly.

A brief overview of the Designer Guide's sections follows.

What Designers Do?

The What Designers Do? section explains what you do when you work as Designer. In particular, what the Designer tasks and what tools they have to build Applications in eLegere.

The section describes also:

  • The different permissions that a section of the Designer Guide might require: Storage Management, Connection Management, and Scheduler Management.
  • How to integrate and manipulate data in your Applications.

Create an Application

The Create an Application section explains everything you need to know to build from scratch an eLegere application. The section explains all the concepts and tools that Designer employ to design whatever application their workflows require. In particular, the section explains the interface to build applications called Design Mode.

The section describes:

  • What Applications require to function and from what source they retrive and manipulate data: Storages.
  • How to design an application without any knowledge of coding by using the Design Mode interface.
  • How to automate and introduce smart behavior in the Applications that you have built.

Manage Applications

The Manage Applications section introduces the folders: it explains how to divide and arrange the Applications in folders in the Home for the Users. Also, how to grant access to each application only to certain Users and Groups.

The Migrating Applications and Related Data section explains how to import and export Applications and related data across Domains within the same eLegere installation or a different one.

The section describes:

  • How to export with or without pre-existing data all the Applications or a single application.
  • How to import one or more Applications in a Domain or a completely different eLegere installation.

Helpful Reference for Automation

The Helpful Reference for Automation section provides the syntax and functions' reference of the two tools to automate and extend Applications:

  • Formulas for automatic calculations and restrictions about who can edit or view data in Applications.
  • eLegere Script, the proprietary language to design your own features and extend what Applications can do beyond the default options.
