Snapshots are links that appear on the lower portion of each App tile and in the menu when you click the ellipsis (...). This is what they look like:
A snapshot will take you directly to a particular screen in the App (e.g. the New snapshot will take you the New Activity Screen in the example above). The bottom right snapshot can also display information directly on the app (e.g. 10 Due Activities).
Let’s take a closer look at how to configure a Snapshot.
Creating a Snapshot that shows a Number
Click Create Snapshot.
If not selected, choose Number.
For Number Type, you will select a function to create the number you wish to display:
Count - count all the records
Sum - go through all the records looking at a given field containing a number, and add those numbers together
Avg - go through all the records looking at a given field containing a number, and get the average
Max - go through all the records looking at a given field containing a number, and get the maximum number
Min - go through all the records looking at a given field containing a number, and get the minimum number
Select the Table which has the records you wish to display
Select the Field which contains the values you wish look at
Label - Choose text that indicates what the snapshot is for. Example: "Active Contacts"
The Go to screen dropdown allows you to choose what screen users will be sent to when they click this Snapshot. The dropdown will display all screens in the app you are managing, so choose the one that works best (for example, go to the “Contacts List”).
Position - Where on the app the snapshot will appear:
Menu - Snapshot will appear in the contextual menu when user selects the vertical ellipsis (Only label shows)
Right - Snapshot will appear on the bottom right of the app
Left - Snapshot will appear on the bottom left of the app
Adding a Filter
Adding a filter only appears if you select a Number Snapshot Type.
Normally, the snapshot will include every record in the table to apply the Number Type Function to. For example, without a filter, you can show a count of all the records in the Contacts table.
However, you can choose to only look at a subset of the records in the table. Again, let's use the Contacts table as an example. You could have the count show only Active contacts.
When you add a filter, you will see a small grid which acts in the same way as the Criteria Builder.
To recreate our example of only active contacts, you will need to add a condition, setting the first dropdown to the IsActive field, and the second dropdown to Is True.
