In the ever-evolving landscape of enterprise software, staying ahead of the curve is not just an advantage, it's a necessity. As we look at SAP Fiori elements, exciting developments  help you to strive, particularly with the features from SAPUI5 Version 1.121 and SAP Fiori elements for OData V4. This latest iteration promises to enhance the capabilities of Fiori elements even further, offering a host of new functionalities and improvements.

Here's a look into some of the latest features for SAP Fiori elements for OData V4:

Recently Entered Values: Have you ever wished for a quicker way to access recently entered values in a field? Well, your wish is granted! We've introduced a handy feature that allows you to view the history of the most recently entered values right within the filter bar.

By simply moving your cursor back to the field, you can enable this time-saving function. While it's automatically activated for controls where it is relevant, like multi-input fields, it might not be enabled for others such as drop-down lists.

With this enhancement, navigating through your data becomes even more efficient, putting valuable information at the top. For more information, see History of Recently Entered Values.

Open Object Page in Edit Mode: One of the standout features in this update is the introduction of the 'openInEditMode' manifest setting. This addition empowers developers by allowing them to open an object page directly in edit mode. Gone are the days of navigating through multiple screens to make a simple edit; now, users can seamlessly transition to edit mode with just a click. For more information, see Navigating to an Object Page in Edit Mode.

Merged Section and Subsection Title: The section or subsection title is now merged with the table or chart title if the section or subsection only has one table or chart control. That way, redundant information is omitted. For more information, see Defining and Adapting Sections.

Hi Sebastian,

do you know if I can use the Recently Entered Values feature also in SAP Build Work Zone with a custom CAP powered Fiori Elements app?
