Mobile app channels

Mobile channels have become more powerful and easy to use providing an additional, convenient access channel to support employees in the field. You can use the existing mobile channel to quickly build a consumer-grade app, or modify an app to meet your needs.

    A mobile channel provides developers a way to intuitively configure and customize various aspects of mobile app behavior.

      The mobile channel is organized into settings logically grouped on the Content, Configuration, Layout, and Manage tabs. The channel provides a real-time preview of the app design, tailored to the current tab.

      Mobile app security

      To make your mobile app more secure, you can use the Security tab to select an authentication model and configure the locking settings for your app. You can also disable authentication requirements for users who want to access the app by selecting a role that determines which users have access to the mobile channel.
