Welcome screen

Discover how to manage your app's default Welcome screen in the CapiraMobile Staff Dashboard.


The Welcome screen is the default screen of your CapiraMobile app. The Welcome screen displays whenever a user opens the app. It cannot be deleted, but it can be customized with buttons that link to custom screens and/or standard screens. If you have added and enabled an item carousel, it will appear at the top of the Welcome screen.
