Does anyone know if Hidden Apps ( Using a Hidden App in Your Jive Community ) are here to stay in jive cloud for the foreseeable future. I remember reading a post about how they were going to be removed and replaced with something else by Ryan Rutan but i cant find it. It would be nice to keep as its a lovely feature.
From a general perspective, I would not go down this route, as we have seen very little success/uptake of this pattern and as a result it is not receiving extra innovation. Currently there are no plans to substitute an alternate pattern to my knowledge. While not an ideal answer, I hope it helps with your development planning.
