            How to create an app right inside your Prestashop Backend?

            Please note that:

            1. This article applies to PrestaShop 1.7.x. Depending on the PrestaShop version you are using, the terms and steps may vary slightly.
            2. Before the installation, make sure the PrestaShop's webservice is enabled. Through the webservice, PrestaShop allows you to give JMango360 access to your webstore's database.
            3. The JMango360 Mobile App Builder module is around 3MB. You may have to increase the size limit for attachment files in order to install the module.

            You are new to JMango360 and want to convert your PrestaShop webstore into a native app? Follow the two easy steps below to get things done.

            First, you need to install the JMango360 Mobile App Builder module. You can:
            1. Install the JMango360 Mobile App Builder module from the PrestaShop Addons Marketplace.
            2. If you cannot find the module on the Marketplace, try installing using the package file.

            Now that you've done installing the JMango360 Mobile App Builder module, move on to creating your PrestaShop native app:

            Step 1: After the installation, click the Configure button to start configuring the module.

            Step 2: In the configuration form, verify your PrestaShop URL, store name, and store language. 

            Step 3: Click the Create my app for me button to move on to the four-step onboarding flow:

            1. Create your JMango360 account by verifying all required fields.
            2. Provide your business information. This important information helps JMango360 serve you better.
            3. Import relevant data into the app to synchronize your webstore with your mobile app.
            4. Preview your newly created app.
            Step 4: Click the Go to my app button to go ahead. Then, you can choose one of the two following options:

            1. Click the Order set-up package button to request JMango360 to do all the heavy lifting for you.
            2. Click the Open my app button to log in to the JMango360 Back Office. You will find your apps in the My Apps menu. 

            Take note of the following:
            1. By default, newly created apps are in the Preview mode. In order to change to the Live mode, you need to pay subscription.
            2. JMango360 creates different apps based on different store languages in your store. The default app is the one coming with the store language you specified in the previous step and has all relevant data imported. You can open this one to start designing your app.
            3. Except for the default app, all other placeholder apps in other languages have no data imported. To import data into these apps, open the app, in the Settings modules, click Integrate with PrestaShop
            4. The app name has the form [store name] - [language code]. If you want to change the app name, open the app, then from the navigation bar click Settings > General Settings > App Name
