Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Increase the usability and improve the user engagement of your mobile app by enabling and implementing features that ensure a modern mobile experience. You can customize your mobile app and tailor it to both your business needs, and the needs of the users.

You can configure the theme and branding of your mobile app to match the design guidelines of your company, or extend the app's functionality with user engagement features, such as push notifications.

The uPlus company has a stand-alone mobile app that their employees use to submit and manage expense reports. The company wants to change the theme to match the latest redesign of the company's branding, increase user engagement, and make the expense report review process more efficient. As a uPlus developer, you can change the icon and color theme to match the company's branding. You can also configure push notifications for Android and iOS versions of the mobile app, to help users communicate more effectively and provide them with a way to approve, reject, or open work items without having to launch the mobile app.

  • Applying a custom theme to mobile apps

    Match the branding guidelines or project requirements of your company by customizing the theme of your mobile app. For example, you can customize the icon and logo of your mobile app, or adjust the color theme of UI elements, such as the header or background of the app.

  • Engaging mobile users with push notifications

    Improve user engagement and experience in your mobile app with automatic push notifications about meaningful events in your business processes. For example, you can use push notifications to notify users that they must perform an action in a case, such as approve or reject an expense request.

  • Tracking mobile users based on geolocation data

    Record the location of users of offline-enabled mobile apps who work on specific assignments by enabling constant tracking for case types. For example, enable tracking in tasks for service employees in the field so that dispatchers can effectively assign work to the employees based on their current location.

  • Enhancing a mobile app with the native header

    Standardize the user experience in your mobile apps by adding the native header for a custom mobile page. By using the native header in your app, you provide users with a responsive interface that is consistent across native apps and different devices. For example, users can navigate to the previous view by using the native back button for Android apps or a swipe right gesture for iOS apps.
