After the structure of your event is defined and the data is added, a release has to be created in order for users to be able to download this data in their app. If you make changes to your data later on, you can create a new release to disclose this data to your users.

Click Publish in the menu to go to the overview of releases. If you haven't made a release yet, this page will be empty. Click Create release in the toolbar to start a new release. A green window opens at the bottom right where you can see the progress of the release. Other users opening this configurator will also see this window, so they know the release is in progress. The more data you have, the longer creating a release will take. You can close the window to view the data in the configurator, but make sure that you don't edit it, as it will result in errors!

While a release is running, a blue icon is shown in the status column. If it is successfully published, it contains a green checkmark, if it has failed, it has a red icon with a cross.

In the side menu below About this app, you can see which version of the data your app is on. Every once in a while, the app will check if there are new releases available and will prompt the user to install the update now, or later. In you want to test your release in the app, you can force this check by opening the menu from the top left and pull-to-refresh in it.

Release failed? Check the logs!

If your release failed, you can check the logs. Click the green link to go directly to the object that has the error. If there are errors you don't know how to fix, contact us and we'll help you out!

Change the release to use

If you want the app or the web app to use a specific release instead of the latest, go to the Settings, Advanced tab and select the Release to use below App updates or Web app.
