Web views allow you to display web pages directly in the app. For example, you can display your brochure of services, or your online booking or ordering site within the app. It's also a great way to display content that's dynamic, such as the latest reviews of your restaurant or products.
Note: By using a web view instead of setting an app button to open the web page, you can customize the screen title. Web views can also include parameters, specific to the member or device that opens it (see Use Web View Parameters).
Web View Content Types
Web views can be used to display the following:
Create Web Views
To use your web view to display files or forms, you first need to add them to the Como Hub.
To create a web view:
- From the Content tab, click Information and then Web Views.
- Click Add Item.
- Enter the name (for internal use only), the title (which appears in the app) and the page URL.
Note: The page URL can be a website URL, or the URL created when you uploaded the file or activated the form.
- Click Save.
Display Web Views
Once your web view is created, there are two ways to display it in your app.
To display the web view:
- Select to open it directly from a button in the app, OR
- Create a layout block that opens the web view and assign the layout block to an app tile.
