This is a guide for how you publish apps to an app portal. This assumes the app portal has already been pre-configured. If you need help setting up the portal from the start, please read this article
Apps can be published as a standalone app as well as within a portal.

Step 1 – make sure the new app is published

  1. In your app, go to the Publish section

  2. Scroll down and make sure it says available on the option to “Make your app available via another Fliplet app (a portal app)” 

Step 2 – In the portal settings, select the new app 

  1. Click on the portal component to open the settings

  2. Scroll down in the settings to where you can see your available apps

  3. Select the new app from the list 

    1. Note: only published apps will be listed here, so if you can’t see the app as an option, go back to step 1 and make sure the app is published 

    2. Make a note here what the app ID is, as you’ll need it for the next step

Step 3 – In the user data source, add the new app ID in a new column and give users access to the new app

  1. In your portal settings click the button to edit data source

  2. In your data source, create a new column and add the app ID like this APP:1234

    1. Note that 1234 needs to be the unique App ID you can see from your list of available apps

  3. Next to each user email mark an x in the new column if a user should have access to the new app

  4. Save data source and portal component settings

Step 4 – Test it on Fliplet Viewer to make sure you can access & download the new app

  1. Make sure to give yourself access to the new app so you can make sure you can access it on Fliplet viewer 

  2. You won’t be able to test downloading the app in Fliplet Studio preview since the portal only works on mobile devices

Step 5 – Publish the portal to make changes go live

  1. To make your new app available on your live app, publish an update from within Fliplet Studio

  2. When your app has updated, try to download the app and to make sure it’s working
