After adding the home screen features, navigation button, and styling in the Design Step, you can transition to the Build Step. This article details how you can use the Build Step to manage the app's content, which includes adding, deleting, and changing features.
Build Step Capabilities
The Build Step is where you manage most of your app's content.
- Add new features.
- View your app's active and inactive features.
- Deactivate and activate existing features.
- Delete features (not recommended).
- Edit feature names and icons.
- Rearrange feature order.
- Add/Edit feature content.
- Enable Custom Design or keep Global Design.
- Configure feature-specific settings.
Adding New Features
Follow these steps to add new features:
From the CMS, go to Create > Build > + Add.
Choose the feature you would like to add from the list provided, or search by the feature name, and click Select.
Under Screen / Feature Name, enter the name you would like the feature to appear under within the app and click Add.
Select the feature added. Click Add under Screen Info to upload a Feature Icon (64x64px) from your images, or select an available image from the library. This icon will appear next to the Screen / Feature Name within the app.
Activating and Deactivating Features
Deactivating a Feature
Deactivating a feature removes the feature from the app without losing any content. Follow the steps below to deactivate a feature:
Identify the active feature to deactivate. When a feature is active, it will appear under the Features column.
Go to Create > Build.
Click to make the feature inactive.
Activating a Feature
You can easily activate features later to restore them in their previous form. We recommend this option over deleting a feature, which removes the feature completely from the back-end.
Follow the steps below to activate a feature:
Identify the deactivated feature to be activated. Look at the deactivated features that appear under Inactive Features at the bottom of the Menu.
Click on the sign to activate the feature.
- We don't recommend deleting features unless you're certain you will never want the feature within your app again.
- See the process for Deactivating a Feature if you wish to save the feature content while removing the feature from your active app.
Follow these steps to delete a feature with its content:
Start by deactivating the feature you would like to delete.
Locate the feature under the Inactive Features section at the bottom of the Menu.
Hover over the feature you would like to delete, and select the sign to remove the feature permanently.
A confirmation page will appear.
Select Delete to remove the feature. This step is irreversible. The feature can be re-added, but it will not contain any of its previous configurations.
