Integration settings

Integration settings give you a clear overview of authorized and unauthorized integrations within the mobile app. 

Look for a toggle switch on the right side of each integration. A switch in the "on" position indicates authorization, while "off" means it is not yet authorized. To allow searching within an integration, simply tap the toggle and follow the authorization steps.

If the toggle switch is in the “onposition, you can also tap it to disable the integration from the mobile app.

More information about authorizing integrations

All integrations require authorization to function properly. However, the authorization process differs depending on the type of integration:

  • Google and Microsoft Integrations – These integrations require separate authorization on each device you use them on. This means you'll need to go through the authorization steps again specifically within the mobile app
  • Custom App Integrations – These integrations offer a more streamlined experience. Once authorized on the Happeo web app, you can search for them and use them within the mobile app without needing separate mobile authorization. In other words, authorization for Custom App Integrations is shared between web and mobile

Language settings

To change the language that your Happeo is in, you can tap “Change language” from the settings menu and select the desired language.

Note: Changing the language in the mobile app also changes the language in the desktop version.

Custom apps

If you wish to have your own customizable version of Happeo’s mobile app, please contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM). 

Please see this article for information about transitioning from the old Happeo Mobile App to the new version.

Dark mode

The Happeo mobile app has a dark mode enabled by your mobile display settings. 

For example, if your iPhone display settings are dark, the Happeo mobile app will also display a dark mode.

Transition guide of Happeo’s Mobile App for admins

You can read about the transition guide of Happeo’s mobile app for admins in this article. The guide will cover three main scenarios:

  • Admins transitioning to the new Happeo Mobile App: This section is for admins who use the standard Happeo mobile app available for download from the App Store or Google Play
  • Admins of self-hosted Happeo Mobile Apps: This section is for admins with customized versions of the Happeo app distributed through the App Store or Google Play
  • Admins managing internal app distribution: This section is for admins who receive the Happeo mobile app files directly from Happeo and distribute them through internal methods

Q&A

Can I manage a Channel’s settings from the mobile app?

While the Happeo mobile app lets you view and interact with Channels, editing Channel settings is currently only available through the Happeo web version. This ensures a more comprehensive interface for managing Channel configurations.

For tasks like modifying Channel permissions or access levels, you'll need to use Happeo on the web.

Can I access the Admin Panel from the mobile app?

The Happeo mobile app currently doesn't offer access to the Admin Panel. This is because some administrative features require a more comprehensive interface for better control and configuration. You can still access the Admin Panel through the web version of Happeo for these functionalities.

Can I create and edit Pages in the mobile app?

Currently, creating and editing Pages is not supported within the Happeo mobile app. These functionalities require more complex editing features that aren't well-suited for the mobile environment.

However, you can still access and view existing Pages on your mobile device.
