Initial page which will be navigated to the first time the user logs in and every time they access the homepages area in a new browser tab.
A Homepage can be configured in two different ways:
- As a graphic or image uploaded by an asset or an URL option.
- As a dashboard.
Create a Homepage
To add a Homepage, click on the ‘+’ icon for "Homepages" in My Site area in App Studio.
Homepage Identifier: The identifier is a system ID for referencing a Homepage. This ID must be unique for each Homepage and must contain only letters and numbers starting with a letter. It must also have a minimum of three characters.
Homepage Title: The title is the reference to the Homepage that will appear in the UI for the users. It will appear in the left pane menu for the App and also in the breadcrumb at the top of the page which tells the user where they are on the site.
Display Order: The display order is the order in which the Homepage will appear in the left pane for Home. The lower the number the higher the Homepage will appear.
Default Homepage: The default Homepage is the Homepage that the user will be directed to the first time that the user logs in and every time they access the homepages in a new browser tab. If no default has been set, then the user will be taken to the Homepage with the lowest display order.
There is the ability to select a default Homepage for each user or set of users. This will allow users to have a Homepage that is tailored to them. Also works as a good tool for giving a demo sites to new groups of users before they become familiarised with the platform.
Note: Once a user navigates to a different Homepage, this preference will override the default option the next time they go to Home.
- BASIC BUILDER:
There are two areas:
- ‘Use Image Asset’: where you can select to add an image using its URL or you can select an Image Asset. You can upload a new asset too.
- ‘Use Dashboard’: where a dashboard previously created can be added. Read our article to learn how to create a dashboard
Note: Since the platform is created a Homepage (“Home”) is configured. This is necessary to allow access to the platform.
