App settings

These are the fine-tuning steps in the App creation process.

Status

Using this feature, reviewers of the app can assign different statuses like Accepted, Rejected, In Progress, On Hold etc. to the submissions created by the end users. Make sure you save all the values. Submission owners will be notified on each status change unless such settings have been disabled.

No submission app

By default, all apps have a submission button. Disable this to create Apps that don’t require submissions.

Some of the use cases where people use this feature are –

  1. Calculator Apps – Give an app to your users so that they can calculate on the go by entering certain values in the form.
  2. Document repository Apps – Attach files and images to an app and assign to your users so that they can have a set of files handy.
  3. Inventory checker Apps – Create Apps so that your field force can check the status of the inventory anytime on the go.

Enable this option if you don’t want users to sign up to use the app. You will be able to share the link of the app and anyone can see the App and submit data just by visiting the link.

More Advantages: No need to add users to the app and the Workplace, and no need to buy licenses for each user,

Disadvantages: You can’t assign statuses to a submission as the data flow is just one way and users can’t submit data from the mobile app without internet (they can visit the mobile URL to submit though).

Dynamic document printing

Many times you need to print documents with the values that you input in your Apps. Using this features, you can upload a document template or write it yourself, pick values from the submissions of your app, merge template and the dynamic values and create a final merged PDF document. DEEP DIVE
