App Setup Page
On the App Setup page is where you can customize a few basic in-app cosmetics (visible after logging in to the app), global app functionality, and configure field themes to aid rapid solution development.
Accessing the App Setup page is done by navigating the side menu area, Apps > App Setup.
- Remember Logins
By default, the app requires the user to log in every time it is opened up on the device. This provides high security, although if the device has its own PIN to unlock, then it can be a nuisance. Ticking this option means that the user will stay logged in on the app between sessions.
- Log User Location
Enables logging of user GPS location. Location (if available) is logged on every app synchronization and is stored in history on the user’s account (Users&Groups>Edit User>Location History).
- Date Format
Enter the format you would like dates to be displayed. Valid options are:
d, dd = day
ddd, dddd = day of week
M = month
y = year
Examples: MM/dd/yyyy, dd-MMM-yyyy
- Time Format
Enter the format you would like times to be displayed. Valid options are:
h = hour
m = minute
s = second
tt = A.M. or P.M.
h/H = 12/24 hour
hh, mm, ss = display leading zero
h, m, s = do not display leading zero
Examples: HH:mm, hh:mm tt, HH:mm:ss
- Start Screen
Choose a screen to be the starting point for your app, this will replace the default app start screen.
- Disable Password Change
By default, the app’s Settings screen allows the user to change their password as desired. Use this option to remove the password change area from the app for all users in this company account.
- Wait for Sync On Load
By default, the app will perform all data syncing in the background, allowing the user to start working immediately while the sync is still in progress.
When this option is enabled, the app will instead display a blocking overlay when syncing, forcing the user to wait for the sync to finish. This will only occur when the user logs into the app or resumes the app from the background -other background sync intervals will continue as normal.
Useful for cases where you must ensure the users have the latest data before they start working with the app.
- Hide Remember Answers
By default, the app’s Settings screen allows the user to remember answers for Form screens.
Use this option to remove the Remember Answers checkbox from the app for all users in this company account.
- Show Draft Entry Badges
Form Screen icons on the app start screen will show a circular badge containing the count of saved, in-progress entries for that Form.
- Hide Task Status
By default, the app will show a box outlining the user’s current Tasks on the start screen. This option allows you to disable this default.
