Objects

Updated 3 days ago by Mobsted Support L

The section of the Mobsted system that contains the list of Application Users (AppUsers).

Each unique AppUser of Mobsted PWApp is stored in the Table as a separate line and is called "Object". The properties of the AppUsers(Objects) - such as Name, Phone number, Email, etc - are the Columns of the table and can be customized in the way needed.

But Objects are not restricted to be only AppUsers.

You can define any physical matter as an Object, for example: the printer, the apartment or the electric lights.

Objects one of the three sections of Mobsted PWA Platform is based on. The other two are the Constructor and the Backend.

How to find Objects on the Platform?

Mouse over the App on the home screen of the platform and select Objects from the list. It is also available from the Constructor.

Default Columns

The pre created columns and are blank by default:

  • sign: The unique ID of the Object, is used to reference the Object and it's properties
  • Enabled: The checkbox that allows to turn off the access to the App for the AppUser. Is checked by default.
  • LoginUrl: The link with the QR code and the link using which the App is accessible. Can be used for testing purposes. The App could be launched on the desktop browser from the Object perspective.
  • LastLogin: Displays the date and time AppUser accessed the App the last time. If blank then the AppUser did not access the App yet.
  • HomeScreen: You can choose the screen the AppUser would see first. Set to Home by default
  • PIN: the application access password AppUser has to enter when opening the App.

How to Add Custom Columns

Clicking "Add Custom Column" would start the process of adding new Column (Property) to the Objects in addition to the default ones.

Parameters to be filled:

  • Column name
  • Its Default Value - meaning what value would be stored in it before any parameter would be assigned
  • Close from self editing by Object - if checked, the Object would not be able to view or change this field in his Profile Screen.
  • Show the content to a Servicer in the Event - the Object would not be able to see this field in his Profile but would be shown for Servicer.
  • Column will contain files (ONLY) - restrict the column to store anything but files. Otherwise any kind of data can be stored: Strings, Integers, and files like Photos, Videos, or Audio. The default size limitation is 50MB, but may be customized on the server side.
  • Ask if auto-registration - if checked this column would be asked when the AppUser accesses the Application for the first time. Works if autoregustration is enabled security settings.
  • In short view of Servicer - check to show in short list for the person who would work with App data, "Service Managers. (SM)"

Adding Objects

There are two way to add Objects to the Application:

  • Manual

    Clicking "Add Object" button will add new object to the end of the list.

    • Click Import
    • Select the CSV file
    • Select the column of the Objects where the column from the CSV file would be imported
Please note that when importing Objects in CSV file columns should be pre-created and delimited with semicolon otherwise, the import would not work.
