What's new on the Developer Dashboard

October 14th, 2019

In response to feedback from third-party developers, Clover has introduced a new look and feel, new features, and improved workflows for existing features.

The new Developer Dashboard is divided into three key sections:

Dashboard home

Your app setup begins when you click Create App irrespective of your app type - Android, web, or semi-integrated.

App cards

Under My Apps, we are introducing app cards. With app cards, you can easily identify your apps, configure app settings for building and testing apps, and also submit your built apps for approval on the Clover App Market. For more information about app cards, see Developer Dashboard basics.

Submission checklist

From the new overflow menu for each app card, you can submit an app for approval or delete an app. For a deleted app, the app card is removed from the My Apps.

From the overflow menu, if you click Submit App, a new Submission Checklist appears. This checklist is a more involved method of highlighting the information that must be filled in before an app can be submitted for approval. For more information about submitting apps and the Submission Checklist, see Submitting apps.

Banners

The new blue banner at the top of the Dashboard home is for broadcasting announcements to third-party developers.

Feedback widget

You can use the new feedback widget at the bottom-right of any dashboard page to share feedback about issues and improvements. By tagging your feedback to specific sections on the Developer Dashboard, you can send us more targeted feedback.

Header

On the new Developer Dashboard header, you can create test merchants, navigate between test merchant dashboards, and manage your dashboard login credentials. For more information about managing test merchants, see Managing test merchants.

Side-navigation menu

On the new side-navigation menu (or side-nav), you have easy access to every app setting you can configure.

App Settings

On the new App Settings page, you can configure required settings and permissions that your app requires for accessing Clover merchant data. For more information, see Managing app settings.

App Releases

On the new App Releases page on the side-nav, you can upload and manage APK versions for your Android apps. For an uploaded APK, you can keep track of the APK version that is published as the default version and add release notes. You can also add approved and published APKs to release groups. For more information, see Managing Android app releases.

Market Listing

On the new Market Listing page, you can set information about your app for Clover merchants to view on the Clover App Market. For more information, see Setting App Market listings.

Installs

On the new Installs page, you can view the list of merchants that have installed your published apps from the Clover App Market.

Ratings & Reviews

Once you have an app published on the Clover App Market, the Ratings & Reviews page is available on the side-nav. When your app receives ratings and reviews on the Clover App Market by logged in merchants, you can view information about your app's average ratings and the total number of ratings. For more information, see Your app ratings & reviews.

Release Groups

On the new Release Groups page, you can stagger rollouts, pilot features to a subset of approved merchants, and A/B test a feature across 2 or more groups of merchants. For more information, see Managing release groups.

Billing

On the new Billing page, you can view all merchant billing charges with all your published apps and also monthly statements of all merchant charges by location. For more information, see Billing for apps.

Dev Kits

You can order and use Clover Developer Kits (Dev Kits) to test apps, including transactions, for your test merchants in the sandbox environment. For more information, see Clover DevKits.

Developer Settings

On the new side-nav, you can also set developer settings, including roles and permissions. For more information, see Managing developer accounts.
