Docebo’s Mobile App
The new Docebo App allows users to access the platform directly from their mobile phone.
Last Updated: February 8, 2017 | Version: 6.9 | User level: Administrators, End Users, Power Users
The Docebo Mobile App allow users to access their LMS platforms directly from their mobile devices. Through the Docebo App, your users can easily attend courses and engage with learning objects via channels.
The Docebo Mobile Apps are available for both iOS (including iPads) and Android devices. Additionally, you can access your Docebo platform via web browser on your mobile devices, and you will see a fully functional mobile version of your platform instead of the desktop version. You can download the app by searching for “Docebo LMS Mobile” in the Apple Store or in Google Play.
Please note that the Mobile App has no admin functionality. Rather, they are for end users (learners). Let’s take a look at how to use your Docebo mobile app.Close
Logging into your Docebo Mobile App↓
To access the app, tab on the app’s icon to launch it. On the first page, type in your Docebo LMS address in the text box.
Then, type in your email address and password. You can also flag the option to Remember Me on this device, so you don’t have to login again every time you launch the app. Alternatively, Docebo Mobile Apps support Single Sign On (SSO). You can press the Sign On with SAML/ADFS button to log into the app this way. Finally, the mobile app supports password reset if you forgot your password. You can press the Forgot Your Password? item if necessary. Once you’re ready, press Sign In to access your platform.Close
Managing Logo and Colors of the Mobile App↓
Admins can manage the logo and the colors of their Docebo Mobile App. This is also available for multidomain clients. To do so, go to the admin menu, the press on the Mobile App Settings item in the Settings section of the first column.
Now, you can set your company’s logo, login page background, and main app color. We suggest uploading a high resolution (retina display) logo.
When you’re finished, press Save Changes.Close
First Login for White Label or Multidomain Customers↓
Your branding (logo, colors, etc.) will now appear just as you’ve set them in the desktop version of your platform after you type in your URL into your Docebo LMS Mobile app.
Please Note: For all customers, the app will always display Docebo as the developer. This cannot be configured.Close
Managing the Home Page of Your Mobile App↓
Once you’ve reached the home page of your mobile app, you will see the screen is divided into two sections using two separate icons: The Channels Icon and the My Channel Icon.
Please note that channels are available on every mobile app, regardless if your company is using Docebo’s Coach & Share feature or not. Let’s take a look at each Icon.Close
The Channels Page↓
The channels page is accessed by clicking on the All Channels icon. By default, this is the first screen that will appear when you log into your mobile platform.
Here, you will see a list of channels, with content in each channel. Much like the Netflix interface, you can swipe your finger left and right to scroll through the content on each channel. Simply click on the content with your finger to engage with it. Each learning object will have a different interface according to it’s type, but all content will show the details of the specific learning object as well as an easy way to complete it.
All engagement with content on your mobile app will automatically be tracked.Close
The My Channel Page↓
The My Channel page is accessed by clicking on the My Channel icon. Here, you will see a description of your channel as well as how many contributions you have made on the LMS. You will then see your contributions. You can click on each object with your finger to view and engage with it.Close
Managing the Menu Icon of Your Mobile App↓
The menu icon on your Docebo mobile app is found in the top left corner of your screen.
When you press the Menu icon, you will see your picture and email address. There are three tabs: All Channels, My Channel, and Upload. Please refer to the sections above for how to manage the first two tabs.
Additionally, you will see an X in the top left corner to exit the menu, and the door icon to log out of your account. Now, let’s see how to manage the Upload tab.Close
Uploading Content on your Mobile App↓
Once you’re on the user menu, select the Upload tab. The Upload page is divided into two sections: The Uploading Queue and your Uploaded Items. You can switch between the corresponding icons at the top to switch between the two sections.
In the Uploading Queue section (the first icon), you will see a list of items that you have uploaded that still need to be finalized or published. Below, you will see the blue + button with a message to Upload or Record Now! Click on this button to upload new content. From the mobile app, you can upload images or video files. All video files uploaded will automatically be converted to .mp4. The item will now upload into the system, and you will see a progress bar to let you know when the upload will be completed.
When the upload is complete, you can press the dots icon on the right side to cancel the upload or Add Details and Publish.
Select the Add Details and Publish item, then add a title and description for your content. You then need to select if you want the content to be private or public, to which channels you will assign the content (if the object will be public), and which tags you want to use to describe the content.
When you’re finished, press Publish. Now, the item will appear in the Uploaded Items section. You can manage all uploaded items from this section. When you click on the object, you will then see how it looks in the mobile app as well as additional details, such as: name of uploader, time of upload, number of views, description, rating, and related assets.Close
