Managing an app can be quite a challenge.
The contentDock® App Management is the control center of your user account and supports you in managing your projects. Here you bringing together templates and editorial content and making the finished project available as an app for publication.
Templates, styles and fonts
You will always find the templates for your apps in the project in which they were created. If you also want to use a template in other projects within your account, you can import it there.
The styles of the used content elements of a template can be set individually or imported from other projects. Each content element is equipped with a variety of styles and can be customized individually.
Load your own fonts into the contentDock® Management System and use them in the styles or Rich Text Editor.

The number of pages in a contentApp is not limited, but a useful structure is the basis for good navigation in the app.
Each page can be linked to the desired template and then merged editorially with the appropriate content.
In the settings of a project you decide how you want to handle the contents of the respective app. For example, public apps are freely accessible and can be accessed by everyone without a login. But perhaps your content is also private, i.e. intended for internal company use. You control the access for these apps via the user administration of the project.
Would you like to manage the apps for different publishers within your account? An individual imprint for each project gives you the necessary flexibility!
Preview-Mode and Publish
The continuous development and expansion of an app is not a straightforward process. Accompany the development of your app. Check a new or changed version before it is released for publish. With the preview mode you can test the latest version of your project in the Viewer App at your leisure.
Only when your project is published does it become a contentApp and thus visible and accessible to users.
Work in a team! The administrator of the account can put together an appropriate team and assign the necessary rights to each member.
For example, the administration of files and data containers across projects could be reserved for team members with the appropriate know-how.
However, it can also be useful to distribute differentiated rights for individual projects. For example:
May the employee release the project for publication?
May the employee edit templates?
May the employee edit page content?
Analyze the usage of your contentApps. In addition to data transfer and project usage, you can also see which content pages were used the most.
When you are using the contentDock® SDK, you can also activate the Location Service. This allows you to analyze in which regions your app has been used. To do this, users must have given their prior consent to the transfer of the data and your app must comply with the Apple & Google App Store guidelines.
With data containers, dynamic content such as news or products can be managed across projects. This content can then be linked, for example, with the elements of table or diagram.
Note: The administration of data containers requires knowledge with database tables.
Do you already have databases in which, for example, your news or product data are managed? Then you can also use this data for your projects in contentDock®.
Via the contentDock® API you can then automatically supply the data container tables created in contentDock® with content.
Note: The use of the API interface requires programming knowledge.
