Apps overview

Haiilo has a range of apps that are designed to serve specific use cases. Apps can be installed in pages or communities and are responsible for providing or processing information. While some apps have space for widgets, others, such as the form or documents app, serve their individual use case independently.

Features

Apps include the following:

  • Enabling apps: Admins can turn individual apps on or off for pages, communities, or both in Administration > Features > Apps. This way, you can decide which apps can be used in pages or communities or at all on the platform. You can also determine if the app can only be managed and added by moderators.
  • Apps: There are 11 apps in Haiilo. Each app has its own article explaining its settings:
  • App groups: Group and order your apps efficiently in groups to make it easier for users to find what they need by topic. App groups are given a title and apps are placed inside the group by dragging and dropping.
