Learn how to use Draft Version for testing and preparing your content before publishing to your Live Apps
Draft Mode allows you to create and preview content before publishing to your live Apps, and it's very important you are always doing this when adding or changing content in GXP. To start you will need at least iRiS Guest v5.9 or higher, you can do the following:
- Open your iRiS Guest Room or iRiS Guest Mobile App
- Open the Side Menu
- Double tap on your logo at the top
- It should open a new pop up called App Information
- Enter the PIN number you've been provided by Support
- Tap View Draft
- It should look like the below:
Entering your PIN in the Draft Mode field and tapping on View Draft will enable the Draft feature. This allows you to create content edits in our platform, and have them available to preview on the app before publishing a version to all of your users. When you want to see the content updates, simply open the Side Menu and show the App Information pop up and you will see the below:
When in Draft Mode, it will replace your brand logo in the Top Bar with the text Draft Mode.
Tapping on Refresh Content will then allow the app to receive the latest changes you’ve saved in our platform, and provide you with the below page loader so you’re aware the app is pulling the new changes down to your device. Tapping on View Live will force the device to go back into the Live mode that your users will see.
You can keep your device in Draft Mode at all times. If you close the app and re-open it the app will stay in Draft Mode. If you force quit the app it will revert back to Live Mode. You should now be able to use Draft Mode in iRiS Guest to preview your content changes before publishing to your guests.
