Each element of your app represents a particular content. For example, this can be a cell that displays a percentage, an item where a text heading is located, or a selection cell where you can select one of the predefined values (like a drop-down list In Excel).
Depending on the type, the elements are displayed differently in the app, can be edited or have additional functions.
It may also happen that the Open as App Wizard incorrectly interprets a cell from your source file and you have to "re-define" it in the editor.
Change the content type of an element
The Content Type can be changed manually in the editor. To do this, open your app on the portal.
- In the preview, open the editor for the desired element and make sure you are in the tab "Main".
- Select the desired value from the "Content Type" selection list.
- Save the changes.
List of content types
The following types are available for you:
- Toggle - selection list (like a drop-down list in Excel)
- List - classic list
- Card list - list in map view
Additional content types
There are other content types that can be inserted via the XML configuration. These are still in the test phase or are dimmed in the selection list, since the creation of these content types requires considerable changes.
