Dashboard activity

DASHBOARD ACTIVITY #

A Dashboard is a main home screen app element. All app activities are placed on an app dashboard.

Your app always has the first, main dashboard by default. You can add multiple dashboards to your application.

The second dashboard will always require the Dashboard button that links to it from the main app dashboard.

To add this activity, open the Components section on the left side of your builder, expand the Layout category, and choose the Dashboard activity.

After you have added a second Dashboard, you can set a number of columns for it. Use the scale from the left side of the preview. For instance, if you set your Dashboard for 2 columns, it will be impossible to add more than 2 columns on activity level. We recommend setting this parameter between 3 and 5.

Below, you can tick the Use action buttons in the app bar.

You can add social buttons of quick access:

  • Link (for external links);
  • Location (for a geodata of your service);
  • Mail (for sending emails);
  • Phone (for a one-click phone call).

 

These quick access buttons will be placed in the upper part of your dashboard. You can set a vertical / horizontal direction to them, and set the alignment — in the central part, or on the left/right side of the screen. You can also change icons for these quick action buttons, or choose their color from the palette.

In the right part of the builder, you can customize your Dashboard activity.

Here, you have an URL of this particular activity. You can later use it for cross-linking among other app activities (for example, a custom page).

You can also add a search bar to your Dashboard activity, which allows users to search in app.

NAVIGATION DRAWER APPEARANCE #

The navigation drawer is a clickable icon in the left upper corner of your dashboard, that opens a list of all app’s features and helps users navigate through your app.

Here, you can set some navigation drawer’s parameters:

  • Show activity in drawer (to make this activity seen on activities list);
  • Show activity icon (to make an activity image seen on the list);
  • Show activity subtitle (to make a subtitle seen on activities list);
  • Add divider after activity (for the activity’s title to be divided from other titles by horizontal underlining).

APP BAR APPEARANCE #

The app bar is an upper line with the activity’s name on your app’s dashboard.

App bar leading section lets you choose what to depict on the app bar:

  1. Show back button (for making it possible to go back to the previous screen).
  2. Show drawer icon (for a drawer icon to be seen).
  3. Show nothing (for hiding the elements from the app bar).

You also have extra app bar settings here to tick:

  • Show title in app bar (for a Dashboard activity’s name to be seen);
  • Use app bar background image (for uploading and adjusting a background image for your activity’s app bar);
  • Use custom app bar theme (tick this section to choose title’s color, font, and font’s size).

You can also set an expanded app bar height (from the minimum of 56px).

Also, you can set the app bar behavior:

  • Show expanded only when scroll to top, otherwise hidden;
  • Show expanded on scrolling up, hide on scrolling down;
  • Show expanded on scrolling up, show collapsed otherwise;
  • Show expanded only when scroll to top, otherwise collapsed;
  • Show expanded immediately on scrolling up, show collapsed otherwise;
  • Show expanded immediately on scrolling up, otherwise hidden.

ACTIVITY APPEARANCE #

This section helps you set an interface of your activity.

Tick the Use background image for activity if you want to upload your picture as a background image inside the activity.

Add the image with the Browse image button. The file should be an image.

The Dashboard activity itself also has a settings image (a gear). You can add ads there, or delete the activity.
