Manage app users and objects

Updated 2 weeks ago by Mobsted Support L

Each unique user stored on Backend is Object in platfrom's terms. Tenant account can have multiple Apps. Each app can access its' own user records (Objects) only. The data for each Object is stored as a separate row in the table. The columns of the table represent Object's properties and can be customized. For example, an app user fills in Nickname, Phone and Email fields and submits the form:

In Objects section of the platform Nickname, Phone and Email columns display the data entered by this app user.

You can use this table data in any part of the platform by using Hashtags.

The platform has a number of pre-built columns:

  • ID: unique ID of the object, is used to reference the object and it's properties
  • Enabled: allows to turn off the access to the app for the app user, is checked by default
  • LoginUrl: link with QR code and link to access the app. Can be used for testing and distributing purposes. The app can be launched in desktop browser on behalf of the user
  • PIN: access password to enter when opening the app
  • LastLogin: displays the date and time of the last access. If blank - the user has not accessed the app yet
  • HomeScreen: you can choose the screen app user will see first. Set to Home by default
  • Email
  • Phone
  • LastModified
  • CreateDate
  • Facebook Channel / Telegram Channel / Viber Channel / VK Channel / Chrome Push Channel: indicates which notification channels are enabled for the user
  • Timezone
  • Tester: app user which is used for testing. Objects checked as testers are displayed in Preview mode in Constructor, you can select the object and see how the screen is displayed for this user.

Objects are not restricted to be only app users. You can define any physical matter as an Object, for example a printer or an elevator.Example: each printer in Mobsted office has unique QR code on it. When the printer is out of paper, an employe scans QR code and submits the task for the service in the app. On the backend Printer Object gets the marker for the paper in.
