Did you know: Customizing Menu Items in your Mobile App

Blog Post created by gonzalo.marcos@nintex.com on Dec 4, 2017

In my last post Did you know: Change the Default Landing Page in Nintex App Studio I showed you how to customize and organize the content of your mobile app. In this one I'll focus on the app's look and feel and show you a couple of tips to make it look more professional.


1. Change the name and icon of the menu items: In every menu item in the Content Section, you can select the pencil icon to change name, icon, or both. Following my example in the previous post, you can use this to name the html item "Home" and get a proper icon for a home. For another example, you can make forms and tasks more user-friendly by giving them customs name like "My requests" or "My tasks."


2. Change the Form and Task Listings: From the Forms and Tasks menu items, click Add Filter to tell App Studio to include (or exclude) specific forms and workflow tasks from among all the forms and tasks we have in our Nintex environments connected to this app.

From the same pop-up menu we can change the attributes displayed for every form and task. Again, clicking in the pencil button, you'll find the option of changing Icon, Name, Category and Description. This will override the previous attributes of the form/task.

As you can see, with just a couple of changes, your mobile App looks less generic and more purpose-built. Have a look at the below!
