Dynamic forms by UI5 Generic OpenUI control

I read this "This UI5 Generic OpenUI control will enable SAP customers and partners to develop additional functionality within SAP Work Manager, such as analytics, graphics, survey controls, and dynamic forms".

Can you please help me understanding the term dynamic?

Suppose in standard work manager work order app I need a form with some input, combo boxes and GIS and VE integration components. If I want to make these forms to be dynamic means the forms can be changed/altered depending upon order type. What is the process to change these forms with minimum efforts from maintainability perspectives? Can this be done via agentry editor itself or UI5 coding required? If UI5 coding required, then do we have to consider UI5 application architecture be dynamic proof? I am giving an example like we can use a backend table and reading that table we can restructure UI5 screen with dynamic controls in places.

Please help me in understanding.

    Depending on your requirements, creating forms by order type with the Agentry Editor may be the simpliest route if the forms don't really change frequently. What option you choose will depend heavily on what you want to do with the data captured and how "dynamic" it needs to be.

    The Service Manager product includes a survey function that loads questions from complex tables and displays them one at a time to the user. A similar process could be used as well. It will depend on your experience requirements as well.

    Doing the same in an OpenUI UI5 control is also another option.

    The good news is you have multiple options to address your needs, you will probably just need to review and determine what best matches those requirements.

    I bumped into a good video online about Agentry and openUI. Check this out and kudos to the person who shared it. It should describe what "dynamic" means.
