What is ServiceNow Share?
I recently had the opportunity to be part of the initial ServiceNow Share program. The ServiceNow Share program is a website where ServiceNow customers and partners can share custom applications, app extensions, dashboards, workflows, scripts and more.
When I first heard about the program, I had little to zero interest. I mean already had this blog, were I can share any code I want. Then I logged into the ServiceNow Share website.
Completely changed my mind in the first five minutes of browsing. There are hundreds of customizations, and many great ideas in there. I was inspired to participate. In the next 24 hours, I submitted 20 items to ServiceNow Share.
In my opinion, here are some pros and cons of this exciting new program.
Pros of ServiceNow Share
- Wild West of ideas. You have an idea for ServiceNow and want to share it with the world. Go ahead.
- Customizations pre-built. Download the xml file and you are using the customization in minutes.
Cons of ServiceNow Share
- Confidential Code. People have to be careful about sharing confidential company code.
- Lack of Testing. Some code might not work or be tested thoroughly
This is going to be great. I am excited to see ServiceNow Share be released.
