Custom pages can be displayed on the mobile app through links on the home screen or within the My Account page.

Our feature-rich custom pages empower you to design a truly immersive experience. Tailor your pages with two major elements, namely visuals and HTML. 
  1. Visual components include image banner, image grid, and video, creating a visually appealing and informative experience.
  2. Content can be displayed in various formats by leveraging the HTML block, which is a text-based approach to designing a page’s content.

Step 6: Link the page to a block on a  page within the app. 
  1. The page can be accessed through a block or a button within the app, namely:
    1. On the home screen, you can link a block to a corresponding custom page.
    2. On the My Account screen, you can create an action button, configure it, and then directly link it to a specific custom page.
    3. If you want to navigate to the page from the bottom tab, in the Bottom tab section, configure a button and link it to a custom page. 
  2. In the design settings of the chosen block, under Where should this lead your customers?, select Page, then choose the custom page you want to link to.

Step 7:  To finish, click Save draft in the bottom right corner. 
Please note that saving a draft affects only the design page, allowing you to make further changes. To make the current design available to all mobile users, click Publish to Mobile.
