How to add and configure apps - Item auth type

AppsCo supports different authorization types which enable users to access different apps - both the pre-integrated apps and the apps users add by themselves. 

You can add any app to any of your dashboards even if it's not integrated. The apps which are not pre-integrated always use Item auth type to log in user.  

To add and configure an app which is not pre-integrated go to Company in header and then choose Home from the drop-down menu. 

Then choose the dashboard you wish to edit from the drop-down meny. 

Type the name of the app in the search box and then click Create Item to add the app to the dashboard. 

When the app is added to the dashboard click configure to add your login credentials and set up the app. 

A pop-up window will show up, click Change to set up to expand the window and fill in the required fields. 

Write inn the URL/Domain of the app you wish to configure, your username and password. Note and Name fields are optional. As for every other app you can decide if your employees will be able to set it up manually - by checking the checkbox in the bottom of the window. When you're finished with editing click Install to finish. 

The app is now configured. To use the app to login to your account, just click on the App bookmark and a pop-up window will show up. To login to you app, just click on the icon next to Domain/URL. You will be redirected to this application for safe login. 

You will also be able to see or copy all the credentials. Next to username, password and note there is a copy icon which you can use to automatically copy the entry. To view the password you can just click on the eye icon to the right. 

When you are redirected to the application, go to login and you will see AppsCo icon on the login form, usually next to the username field. Click on the AppsCo icon and choose the account you wish to use (if you have configured mulitple accounts on this app on AppsCo, you will be able to choose). Username and password fields will fill out automatically and you can login without typing your password or username, in a secure way.
