Introduction: Why have multiple apps on Timekit
Not to be confused with something you would download from app store, an app is simply an isolated collection of projects, resources and bookings on Timekit. Each app has its own billing plan and app owners. Often you would only need a single app to build your booking experience but some scenarios can require multiple apps setups. These two examples outline the most common reasons:
Building your booking experience will not be possible within the 14 days the free trial on Timekit runs. This is why you need a completely isolated sandbox or test environment. Timekit allows you to create test-mode apps.
You are a online agency or a similar business entity that are managing booking experiences for a number of clients from different companies. In this case multiple apps would allow you to create a completely isolated environment, with separate billing setups and different admins inside each app. As account owner you would be able to access each app through the same login credentials.
Step 1: Login and navigate to manage apps
While logged in to Timekit click to the settings menu in the lower left corner of the admin panels dashboard.
In this menu click "manage apps".
Step 2: Create a new app
When you navigated to the my apps menu click "create app".
Step 3: Configure the new app settings
As you are creating a new app you need to decide what kind of app you would like to create.
Live mode: A live mode app is essentially a brand new app for live booking purposes. As mentioned a new app has its own billing plan and app owners but enables you, as app creator, to access it with your own credentials.
Test mode: A test mode app is for development and test purposes. Test apps are ideal to avoid mixing live data with test data or if the development of a booking experience is expected to take longer than Timekit's 14 days of trial that come with all Live-mode apps.
Select the type of app that fits your need and click "Create app".
You have now created a new app that can be accessed through the manage apps menu.
