Edit Content with CMS

CMS (Content Management System) is the place where you can edit all content of the app.

Functionality

CMS allows you to:

  • create, edit, delete and control content und users

  • access information regarding data-counts and formats
  • give others users admin-rights

Rules, Hints & Best Practices

  • avoid changing data that is part of an import-process as it may be overwritten or blocked later
  • if you use more then one locale (language) note that you can change the locale in the menubar on top of the screen for every language, use this when entering data in a form
  • when a user has difficulty signing in never delete a user as this user will be only soft deleted and the email will stay already used
  • iOS Apps will be updated immediately, pull the home screen after you made some changes in the CMS to trigger an instant update
  • Android Apps are updated during production only on request
  • Content in various languages can be translated in the CMS by selecting the flag symbol in the menu-bar on top of the screen.
