Adding Content

You can add different types of content pages to your app, and there are no limits to the number of pages you can add to your App.

The advice we give is that you make it as user friendly, efficient and intuitive as possible.

If you also have a website you might want to follow the tabs and/or sections you have on the website to achieve consistency.
Moreover, the amount of pages you decide to add to your App will be relevant to the
app layout and theme you choose (due to the disposition of icons on the home page for example), so you can explore and choose the disposition of icons, menus and submenus that best fit your needs.

You can link existing content on the web such as websites, blogs, news feeds, social media and multimedia channels, or you can create your own content by using the custom content pages, like Catalogue, Food, Wine, Places, People and more.

The procedure to add each content page is very similar.

Click on the Content tab on the top bar from your dashboard:

and select the page from the left hand sidebar that you prefer.

Manual Content
Step 1: Select your content source
Click on the Add Content button on the right hand side of each page, then select the source from which you wish to import your content.
For manual content, you have two options:
1.To import content previously created, click on Archive and select the entry you wish to import
2.To create a new piece of content from scratch, click on Custom and then Create

Step 2: Click on “Add New Item” in the top right-hand corner

Step 3: Use the panel to customize your feed

Here you can name your manual entry, add a short description of its features, and upload your image.
Depending on the type of content you are creating, you can configure several features for your content.
For example, you can set a start/end date for your in-app coupons; vintage year for your wines; link your content to an external website for extensive information; set e-commerce options for your shopping cart, etc.
The active/inactive button allows you to hide incomplete pages from your users. This option is particularly useful if your item is still a draft and you wish to go over it later, before making it accessible to users.

Step 4: Geotarget your content

By activating the geolocalization option you will be able to order and present your content based on user’s proximity to the set area. All you have to do is drag the marker over the map and select the target area; alternatively you can type in a specific address.
The item will be pushed to all users, however as the user gets closer to the target area, the item will be shown on top of the page.

Feeds
Here is a list of sample custom feeds you might want to use when linking content from the web inside your app:
