Download the Test App
Once you have an account set up in the platform, it's time to download the BoardActive Test app on your mobile device. This app is for your team to test sending notifications, experience the look and feel of your messages, and experiment with geofencing technology.
The test app allows you to try out our platform with no development required. With the BoardActive Test app, you can polish messages and strategize campaigns before publishing them, all before installing the SDK. Let’s get started!
1. Go to iTunes or Google Playstore and download the BoardActive Test app
2. Launch the app and log in
Use the same email and password you used to create your account on the computer.
3. Select your app
Choose the app name you created in the platform.
4. Open the app and accept “Always On” location tracking, push notifications, and motion tracking
These preferences must be accepted in order to receive notifications when you enter a geofence.
5. Register your phone
Click the hamburger menu in the top left corner of the app and select 'Register Phone'. You should receive a message that says 'BoardActive True', then select 'OK'
Once you have completed these steps, your test app should be primed and ready to go! Create messages and send test notifications to see how your messages will appear on mobile devices. Establish geofences and visit places to receive location-based notifications on your phone in real-time.
