The Front Content settings is where you put the essential details of your mobile pass, like discount value, event schedules, points, etc. In this step, we create the basic details for a discount coupon.
Notes before proceeding:
The Item Name is the identifying element for the label and data text field. The item name must be unique within the entire scope of the pass.
Remove spaces if you have more than 1 word, otherwise you
will see a %20 when you export your pass data.
Good: Discount, Discount-today, DiscountToday Bad: Discount Today (will appear as Discount%20Today in CSV)
A fixed text value will appear the same across all devices. This can be used to statically describe the field (i.e. Name, Card Number). If you push a change to a fixed text value, it will affect all devices.
Fixed values are best used to describe a particular field. If you don’t anticipate a value to change in the future, save it as a fixed value.
A dynamic text value may appear different across devices. For example, a person’s name, card balance, points collected, etc.
Select a dynamic value if you anticipate the value will change and will be unique for each user.
Passholder can change default value:
Ticking this box allows the pass holder to customize their pass, and for the business to collect user data. When this box is ticked, it will require the pass holder to input relevant data on the pass distribution page before adding the pass to their mobile wallet.
Adjust text alignment and select the relevant data type.
Notification to display when data changes
You must always put a notification change message for each dynamic field entry. The short code %20 represents the data that has been changed.
‘You now have %20 points’
‘%20’ will simply show whatever the dynamic data is
Keep the notification to a maximum of 20-23 characters, otherwise the text will get cut off.
