What is the START block?

The START block is the first block that appears in the App Studio by default. It acts as the first page your end user sees at the beginning of an App to display instructions and guidance for moving. All Apps MUST start with a START block.

 

What are the Unique Features of the START block?

  1. START blocks cannot be deleted
  2. START blocks can have arrows branch from it, but cannot have arrows connect to it

 

What are the common instructions or guidance included in the START block?

Common instructions and guidance typically include (but not limited to):

  • Brief description of App
  • Specific instructions (workflow, e-sign etc)
  • Estimated time to complete App

See example below:

  2. Add a Header for the START block

  • Bullet and number lists
  • Text alignment
  • Hyperlinking (URLs and mailto links)
