Using the new Preview App feature

Hi

I’ve been aware of the new Preview App feature for sometime but haven’t
been able to use it effectively and I’d like to understand how to do this.

The problem seems to be that I’m logged in as a web user when I invoke
’Preview App’ and so I’m not part of the group that can see the cases so
none are listed. Is there a way around this?

Thanks

Simon

Hey Simon,

In the app review, there should be a “Login As” tile when you open it up.
This will let you choose and use the app preview as a mobile worker.

(Warning, this will submit real data for that mobile worker, so be careful
with the data you send in).

Thanks,
Sheel

Ah that explains it. I don’t get the “Login As” message. Please see
attached screencast.

Is this a bug?

It would be brilliant to get this working.

Hey Simon,

That’s odd - it should appear. Can you report an issue from your project?
