Help Customize every screen in every app

Updated over a week ago

And now we come to the real heart and soul of customizing Method — the Design Mode. This section will describe the tools available to you and how they work, which will be very helpful once you start customizing and building your own apps.

How to Customize a Screen

There are two ways to get to the Design mode of a screen to customize it.

  • When viewing a screen, click the [] symbol at the top by the title of the screen. A menu will show where you can select Customize Screen.

  • When you are in the App Settings for Screens, clicking on the ✎ Customize button for the screen you wish to customize.

Edit vs Read-Only

There are a number of different elements that deserve explanation, so let’s start at the top.

  1. Title and Version: This shows the screen name and the version of the screen. Depending on the version, the screen can be in read-only, or editable.

  2. This shows whether or not the screen is:

    1. Published (read-only)

    2. Draft (editable)

    3. Archived (read-only)

  3. This notification box reminds you when a screen is in read-only mode.
