How to Offer Special Stuff in Your App: Padlock & PadlockPro

Do you want to have some parts of your app just for certain people? With the Padlock feature, you can do that! It’s like a special lock that only lets authorized users inside. Here’s how you can set it up:

Step 1: Start Your App

  • Go to the ESA website and log in.
  • Create a new app or choose one you already started.
  • If you’re creating a new one, give it a name and create it.

Step 2: Add Padlock

  • Look for “Features” and click on it.
  • Find “Padlock” from the list. If you can’t find it, use the search bar.

Step 3: Customize Padlock

  • Name your page and add a picture.
  • Change how it looks by choosing a style you like.

Step 4: Set Up Access

  • Go to “Restrict access” and choose how people can unlock your locked parts.
  • You can use QRCode or Account, or both.
  • Write down the things that are locked, and choose which parts you want to lock.
  • Decide if you want everyone to have access or just some people.

Step 5: Choose Specific Users (Optional)

  • If you want specific people to have access, go to “Users” and choose who can get in.
  • You can also set an expiry date if needed.

Step 6: Make it Look Good

  • Set a nice background picture for your app in the “design” section.
  • You can choose one for both portrait and landscape modes.

Step 7: Preview and Share

  • Click “see changes” to see how your app looks on a real device.
  • If you want, you can make the app file to share or use.

PadlockPro for More Control

  • This works like Padlock, but you can choose which pages are locked.
  • Steps 1, 2, and 3 are the same as Padlock.
  • Start from step 4 and choose “PadlockPro” from the features list.

Step 8 (PadlockPro): Choose Locked Pages

  • Decide which pages you want to lock and click “save.”
  • Go to “Users with access” and pick a user.
  • Choose a role and add an expiry date if you want.
  • Click “see changes” to check how your app looks.
  • If you want to share your app, you can make a file for it.

Great work! Now you know how to use Padlock and PadlockPro features to share special things with specific people in your app.
