Change the App front page

Make the mobile app your own, with a logo and messages.

The logo should be a square PNG file so that it will appear in the mobile app for both phones and tablets without distortion. Give the mobile app a name that people will relate to. The best names reflect what you are trying to achieve eg. Zero harm or Safety Differently
Add a message, for example:

  • Encouraging – “We value your support. We will listen to what you say and act on it”
  • Give contact information – “In the event of an emergency contact …Email, telephone, web site”. Contact details are clickable and make sure the reporter always has emergency numbers to hand and up to date
  • Give information that will help filling out the forms

Front Page Design

Add a logo and messages to change the appearance of the front screen in the mobile app. The form buttons show all the published and draft forms. However, a user will only see their allocated forms in their mobile device.

The logo should be a square PNG file, so it appears in the mobile app of both phones and tablets without distortion.

  • Click the camera icon to upload the logo.
  • Change your logo by clicking on it to make Replace and Delete buttons appear.

Give your app a name

Add a name to the Heading box. You could use your company name, but often the best names reflect what you are trying to achieve such as: Zero harm or Safety Differently.

Write an important message in the second text box. This will be seen by everyone who uses the mobile app.

  • Encouraging : We value your support. We will listen to what you have to say and act on it
  • Contact information : In an emergency, contact …email, telephone number, web link. Any contact details that you add are clickable. This makes sure that the reporter always has current contact details accessible.
  • Tell people how you would like them to use the mobile app, and what you will do with the information.

Forms buttons

All the live forms appear as buttons at the bottom of the Front Page screen. You can change the order by dragging the hamburger icon (3 horizontal lines) to a new position.

Which forms will a Reporter see in their mobile app?

Reporters will only see their allocated forms, which are set using Teams in the Admin tab:

  • Admin > Users shows which teams they are members of
  • Admin > Teams shows which forms a team can view

How do you change what is written on the form button?

  • The title is at the top of the form. In the App builder, you may add a title by dragging Title question to the top of the Question list.
