2 Studio Pro Functionality

Modeling an app is the process of creating an app and involves creating pages, adding logic, configuring security, etc. For more information on what functionality you can use to model your app, see App Modeling.
When it comes to testing your application, you first need to decide what you are going to test: integration with external services, app logic (microflows), etc. For more information on how to test your application, see Testing.
Studio Pro allows you to run and view your app locally or in the default environment.
For more information on options for deploying your app see Deployment.

For information on how Studio Pro handles versioning of apps, see the Versioning a Project Deployed to the Cloud section in Using Version Control in Studio Pro.
