Standard screens

Discover more information about standard screens in the CapiraMobile Staff Dashboard.


Standard screens contain important information and features that your library users may interact with in your library's app (e.g. the events calendar, user's account information, etc.).

Important notes about standard screens:

  • The content and services contained on standard screens is automatically configured using the information you have added elsewhere in the CapiraMobile Staff Dashboard, particularly throughout the Options element.
  • In order for a standard screen to appear in your app you must link to it by adding a corresponding Button to the Welcome screen or any Custom screen.
  • You cannot add buttons to a standard screen.
  • For all Action standard screens (e.g. Action - Call, Action - Email, etc.), you will need to add a corresponding value in the Action Value field when adding or editing a button that leads to this screen. See Button fields for more information.
