Why create custom home pages for your teams?
To allow mobile users to quickly access relevant elements, you can customize and organize the mobile application's homepage according to the teams, thanks to shortcuts. By clicking on one of the pre-configured shortcuts, users will be able to access filtered lists of jobs, assets, or documents, and will soon be able to perform certain actions with a single click (scan an item, open a document or a specific asset...).
How to use this feature?
Prerequisite: It is necessary to activate the permissions of "Application Home Pages".
1. Configuration of the home page
a. Click on the "Users" section, then in the "Teams" tab go to the "Application Home Pages" sub-tab.
b. Click on "Set up a new home page".
c. Configure the home page in the studio
On the left panel, the "Filtered elements" shortcuts will redirect the user to a list of items in the app. Including:
- A list of resources
- A list of jobs
- A list of documents
Select the shortcut you want and drag and drop it onto the phone screen.
Once dropped on the phone screen, the shortcut must be configured. For the "Filtered elements" shortcuts, you can :
- Add a name
- Filter the items to be returned by clicking on "Configure filter".
- Customize the color of the shortcut
- Add a custom icon
- Display an item counter. Once on the mobile application, the number of items returned will be displayed on the top right of the shortcut. (You can set up to 10 shortcuts with counter).
- Coming soon: Customize the display format (button, item list, map display)
To delete a shortcut, or duplicate it, click on "...".
Once your custom homepage is ready, click on the button at the top right to publish your homepage.
2. Assignment of teams
To make the homepage visible, we need to define which teams can access it. Go back to the list of home pages. Click on "..." of the newly configured home page, then click on "Assign teams".
Select the teams that will have access to the home page by checking them. To unselect a team, uncheck the checkbox.
Several teams can have access to the same homepage but a team can only have access to one homepage. If you try to assign a homepage to a team that already has a homepage, you will be notified by the yellow icon to the right of the team's name. The old homepage will then be replaced by the new one.
3. Display on the application
Once the homepage is configured and assigned, you can test it by going to the Ermeo mobile or web-app (make sure you are in the right team to access it).
Here, the shortcut "Defects to check" redirects the user to the list of the two elements corresponding to the filter.
NB: Once entered in a shortcut of type list of resources (and soon of type list of jobs), assets can be displayed in cartographic format if they have attributes of type GPS coordinates.
Update of the new home page on the mobile application:
The new homepage will be visible the next time the page is refreshed.
The feature is available in offline mode. For the new homepage to appear, it will also be necessary to wait for the first synchronization (indicated by the banner at the bottom of the page).
4. Updating a homepage that has been published on the application
Once a homepage has been published, it is necessary to create a new version of the homepage in order to perform the changes. To do this click on "...", then on "Create a new version".
Make the desired changes on the draft version of the homepage. Once the page is ready, click on "Push changes".
To view a published version of the homepage (the one visible on the mobile application by users), click on "...", then "View published version".
5. Deactivating a home page
If you want the teams assigned to a homepage to temporarily return to the standard Ermeo homepage, you can deactivate the homepage by clicking on "...", then "Deactivate". To reactivate the homepage click on "Activate".
The logo at the top left "Play" in green, "Pause" in gray, tells you that the home page is active or inactive respectively.
6. Changing the default home page
- Before creating custom homepages, the standard Ermeo homepage is used "By default". It applies to all users of the application.
- Once your custom home pages are configured, the default home page applies:
- To users in the application who do not have access to a custom homepage
- To users in multiple teams
It is possible to transform a custom home page into a "Default home page". To do so, click on "..." then "Use as default".
NB: Team assignments to the page will be removed but teams that were seeing this custom page will still see it as it becomes the "default custom page".
To return to the standard Ermeo default home page, click on "...", "Use default".
7. Add a custom logo to each homepage
To make it easier for you to identify the different homepages you have created, you can give them a custom logo.
