Before you begin

Role required: admin

About this task

Applets are templates for a series of screens. Depending on the template that you select, different options are available.
Warning: You can also configure individual screens in the platform. Unlike Studio, the platform doesn't prevent you from creating something that might break the app.


  1. Navigate to System Applications > Studio to open Studio.
  2. Select a scoped application where you want to create your applet.
    If you have not created an application, you can create one by using the Create Application button. For information on creating a scoped application for mobile, see Create a mobile application using Guided Application Creator.
  3. Use the Application Explorer to navigate to Mobile Studio > Applets and select Applets.
  4. Click the pop-out icon (Pop out icon) that appears to the right of Applets.
  5. In the applet list, click Create an applet.
  6. In the Applet name field, type a name for the applet.
    The applet name appears on a tile in the application on a mobile device.
  7. From the list of icons, select an icon to appear in the applet.
  8. (Optional) In the Description field, type a description for the applet.
    Note: You can change the applet name, description, icon, offline mode availability, and form screen availability after you create the applet. Just click the Properties button in the applet tab header.
  9. Select an applet template.
    Depending on the applet that you select, different screen configuration options appear.
