Once you have created your workspace using the workspace creation wizard, you can immediately access the app to see how your workspace looks.
This will allow you to see how your workspace grows and looks in the app as you build it in Backstage, as well as test and adjust any functionalities as they are configured.
There are two possible scenarios for accessing the app: Accessing the app via the web app (for virtual events), or accessing the app via the mobile app.
Note: A Backstage user who creates a workspace is automatically added by default as an app user to the workspace (visible in the Users module).
Accessing via the web app
For virtual events, all participants will attend via the web app.
You can access your workspace via the web app by using a direct link, or through your workspace user profile in Backstage.
Via direct link to the web app
To access a list of all your events via the web app you can directly follow this link: https://webapp.spotme.com/welcome/spotme
From here you simply need to click on the workspace that you want to access in the list. The workspace will then open via the web app on your browser.
If you are creating your first app, then you will only see the workspace that you just created in the list. If you have already created a number of workspaces, you will see them all listed here, and they can be filtered using the All, Ongoing, Future or Past, or Testing buttons.
Via your workspace user profile in Backstage
To access the web app from within a workspace via Backstage:
- Open the workspace in Backstage.
- Go to the Content category in the main menu and click on Users.
- Click on your user name in the list to open your user page in the workspace.
- Click on Access the web app as your name.
- Click on Log in as your name.
Accessing via the mobile app
There are two possible scenarios for downloading the mobile app, depending on whether you are using the standard SpotMe container app, called Eventspace, or a container app that is branded and published independently by your organization.
Downloading and accessing the SpotMe Eventspace app
If your organization or workspace is using the SpotMe Eventspace container app, search for Eventspace by SpotMe in the App Store or Play Stores, or scan the below QR code with your phone:
Then simply follow the steps to install the app.
Note: You will be asked to enter your organization email address (the one used to log in to Backstage), in order to receive a link that will allow you to activate the app.
On your device, in the email you receive, click on Activate SpotMe app:
The app will open, and a list of the workspaces that you have access to will be displayed.
Tap the workspace that you wish to access, in order to download its content into the container app. Once the download is complete, the app will open the workspace.
Downloading and accessing your organization's branded app
If your organization is using a branded container app, then this is published independently on Google Play or App Store by your organization.
If this is the case, your organization administrator can provide the information you need to download the container app.
