How to Update Old Apps (Pre-April 2014)

Last Updated: Aug 04, 2016 08:49AM PDT
If you’re updating an app that was last uploaded before April 2014, some changes will need to be made before you’re able to publish. This includes several fields and images that have been added since the app was last published that are now necessary since the release of Bizness Apps 4.0. The list below will let you know which fields will need attention before publishing. For more information on how to update these items, please click on the tab name to view the tab article.

Note: When you update, your users will lose their stamps, check-ins, and scans. Unfortunately there's no way around this, so we recommend documenting users' progress before the update is released. Once your app is operating on a more modern source code, this loss won't happen again—it's just the transition from pre-April 2014 to later source codes that results in this loss.
