Mobile Design

The Mobile Design feature is used to optimize an app so that it's suitable for viewing on a mobile device.



We strongly recommend that before designing the mobile app you should complete the desktop app design including layout, behaviors, workflow and access rules.


A mobile app consists of pages that contain one or more sections. A section is a grouping of app objects that can be positioned, and moved, as a single entity. App objects may also be re-positioned within a section.


You can optimize the Mobile Design for viewing on a phone in portrait mode (One Column), phone in landscape mode (Two Columns), or a tablet (Two Columns).


Mobile app design should be simple and concise due to screen limitations. Try to limit the number of pages, sections and objects to optimize mobile usability.


Click the mobile icon Universal - Mobile Icon to open the mobile designer. The first time you open the mobile designer, or when you open the designer after a new object has been added, the Mobile App Wizard will be triggered.

In the mobile app wizard you can:


Step 1: Create and Name Sections


Step 2: Add Objects to Sections


Step 3: Select One or Two Column Layout


Step 4: Preview the Mobile App Design


Otherwise clicking on the mobile icon will open Mobile App Layout mode directly.

Optimization of the app for viewing on a mobile device will not impact how the app is viewed on a laptop or PC.


The Mobile design needs attention icon indicates that the mobile design requires attention. This would normally be the result of a new object being added to your app after the mobile app has been configured.
