Configuring the Mobile App Settings

This app is available for Docebo Enterprise & Growth plan clients.

As an LMS Superadmin, you can manage the settings related to your Mobile app directly in the desktop platform. This feature is also available for individual multidomain clients, and for both the 6.9 and 7.0 theme settings.

To do so when using the 7.0 theme, reach the Admin Menu. Press the Manage Themes item in the menu. On the next page, press the gear icon in the 7.0 theme, then switch to the Mobile App tab. To do so when using the 6.9 theme, access the Admin Menu from the gear icon, then press the Mobile App Settings item in the Settings section of the menu.

Start in the General Settings section. Begin by setting your company’s logo. We suggest uploading a high resolution (retina display) image, and note that the width must be at least 600 pixels. You can change the logo at any time by pressing the red trash can icon in the corresponding section, then uploading a new image.

mobile settingsThen, select the homepage of the app: the All Channels page or the My Courses and Learning Plans page. This will be the homepage for all users of your platform, and you can change it at any time from this section.

Next, move to the App Colors area and select the colors for each part of your top navigation, buttons, links, text and borders of your app. You can use the Copy from Desktop button to copy the color palette that you selected for your desktop app, or Reset General Colors to return to the default colors. In each box, enter the HEX code of your preferred color or use the color picker to select a color from the wheel.

Finally, in the Sign In Page section, flag whether you want the background of your sign in page to be a solid color or an image. If you select the color option, return to the App Colors area and select a color using the corresponding box. If you select the image option, upload a background image.

Please note that the minimum dimensions should be at least 720×1280 pixels. To avoid a blurry looking image on retina display devices, we recommend uploading an image that is at least twice the size of the current image display size.

When finished, press Save Changes. Your configured settings will now be applied to your mobile app. You return to this page at any time to modify any of these settings, or you can check who configured the last settings and when by looking at the publishing bar at the bottom of the page.

Activating & Configuring Catalogs for Go.Learn

The Course Catalogs feature in Docebo allows you to have a customized syllabus of your courses. You can activate either an internal catalog or a public one in the learning platform’s desktop version, while only internal catalogs are available in Go.Learn Mobile App.

Catalogs are not shown in the Mobile App by default. To do so, access the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner of your platform’s desktop version. In the Settings section, select the Manage Menus option. On the main Manage Menu page, enter the menu in which you are interested by selecting the corresponding table row, then choose the Desktop Main Menu tab. In the left panel, select the Course Catalog built-in page and then click on Add Pages button. When finished, press Save Changes. Remember that in order to create a catalog, you should access your learning platform via desktop. Read this article for more information about catalog creation.

Activating Catalogs

The same enrollment policies you set for desktop version are used for the Mobile App. Refer to this article for further information about users enrollment into courses.

Please note that the IFRAME Additional Enrollment Field isn’t compatible with the Go.Learn Mobile App at the moment. Thus, if the IFRAME field is a mandatory field for learners, then they will not be able to enroll into those courses from a mobile device. Find out more about the Additional Enrollment Fields in this article.

Security Notes for the App

Networking

Data transmission is secured using HTTPS protocol. While using a standard ECS solution, the certificate is issued by Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority and uses 2048 bit RSA cryptography together with SHA-256 hashing for data signature. Users are allowed to use their own certificates in case of custom named domains. Only in the case of unavailability of HTTPS support. the application will fallback to HTTP.

Data Storage

Sensible data is stored by the app only within isolated storage. Passwords are never saved locally. The offline login feature uses hashing functions to permit access.

SSO

SSO tokens are never saved within the context of the GoLearn app. SSO tokens are immediately converted into HTTPS access keys, then destroyed and removed from the device memory.

Refer to the following table to know which permissions are required by the Go.Learn mobile app.
