Expanded Range of Users Who Can Create Apps from Template Files
Previously, only system administrators could create apps from app template files, but now any user with app creation permissions can create apps from  template files.
With this improvement, users can create apps using app template files obtained from partners and others without the help of a system administrator.
Please note that there are restrictions on template files that non-system administrators can use. Template files created from apps that specifically contain customizations that only system administrators can set up will not be usable by non-system administrators.
