Hope everyone is safe during this crisis. I know its comparing two different beasts but, for our customers we would like to give them options when presenting WF Designer and what its pros/cons. Has anyone investigated what are few big list items we will miss if we go Designer route?
Here's what we thought so far.
1. Dialog Manager
2. Hold files
3. Chaining and Dynamic controls using FEX or MAS files
4. Event based execution, On Change, Onclick etc. in HTML pages using JS

Please share your thoughts!

The Designer is the future. It's best to embrace it and those features will come soon enough.

You can use a Reporting Object and still use Dialog manager and Holdfiles in combination with Designer.

Also chaining is possible and Event based executions in a deigner page (also css) in limited form.

Is report output now GA for Designer?
