App Deploy - Deploying apps through email

Blog Post created by kimarsde Employee on Jun 30, 2017

The Nintex App Studio feature App Deploy lets you deploy apps without using an MDM.

Instead, after building your app, use Nintex App Studio distribution lists to send the app to your recipients' email address. The distribution list sends an email containing the link to download the app.  Optionally, you can view reports on your sent and downloaded apps. Currently, App Deploy is only supported by iOS and Android devices.

 

To create a distribution list

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, click Manage distribution lists.

    The App Deploy tab is accessible from the home page for all apps that are queued to build.

  2. Click Add on the Manage distribution lists page.

  3. Fill out the fields on the Edit distribution list page.

    You can copy and paste email addresses from most sources. Only valid email addresses are automatically extracted from the pasted text when you click Add

  4. Click the Nintex Mobile logo in the ribbon to return to the App deploy tab.

 

To email your app

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, select your distribution lists from the Distribution lists field.

  2. Optionally, turn on the Auto deploy feature, which automatically sends emails to your distribution lists when a new version of Nintex Mobile is released.
  3. Click Preview email to receive a copy of the email that is sent to recipients.
  4. Click Send email to lists now to send the email immediately.
