Component Settings

You can change the settings that affect several of the components of GXM apps. The settings for components are accessible from the Configure Components panel, which opens automatically when you open an existing app or when you load the Mobile Default Template to begin configuring a new app.

App Settings

You need to configure the version numbers for any app before you send it through Development-Testing-Staging-Production. When you make changes, you should update the version number manually. When you finish developing an app and are ready to create a custom build to deploy in your organization, there are settings that you can specify for your target platforms.

If you plan to deploy your app using Google Play, the App Store or Microsoft Store, you need to first obtain provisioning files from the app stores before you can fill in some of the settings.

For detailed requirements about each platform's ID format, see the following:
