Appearance Designer for Mobile Apps


The visual appearance of mobile apps can be customized to align with business brand(s) identity via Appearance Designer. Appearance Configurations can be configured to include mobile app appearance properties.

See the Appearance Designer for IFS Cloud Web for more information on using Appearance Designer.

Mobile App Appearance Properties

Adding a property to an Appearance Configuration context means that the value of that property will be overridden from the default theming.

Mobile app client properties are of format M-999-AAAA.

Viewing on Mobile apps

Once the Appearance Configuration context has been published, log into the application to sync the appearance designer context to the app. This is because context resolution occurs at device activation. Any updates to the context properties themes will be synced to the device at next app initialization.

  • On mobile app, navigate to Sync > Initialize

Switching to Dark Theme

For end users accustomed to working with Dark Mode on their devices, Dark Theme would be applied. mobile apps do not have an in-app setting to switch themes, and therefore is supported on platforms that support Dark Mode.

Switching themes require app restart (quit and reopen app).
