We’re happy to announce that the Airspace App Submissions page has been redesigned to reduce the amount of excess information shown by default, so you can quickly take in the current status of your app at a glance. Screenshots and descriptions of the process are included below.
When you create or update files, they’ll remain in Draft status until you submit them for review. Any errors present in your App Details drafts will need to be revised before they can be submitted – click the red error banner to display the errors and the ‘Revise’ button. Mouse over completed drafts to reveal the ‘Submit’ button.
Once you’ve submitted Binaries or App Details for review, they’ll appear in the ‘In review’ column until the App Review Team has completed their pass, resulting in one of two final states: Accepted or Returned.
In this example, the App Details have passed review and been Accepted, but the Binary has been Returned and needs to be revised. You can mouse over the tile and select the Revise button to resubmit.
After you’ve resubmitted your app – and both an App Details page and a Binary for that particular platform have been approved – your app is ready to be activated on Airspace. App versions will only truly be active when there is both an Active Binary and an Active App Details page.
The green tiles clearly show that this particular version is now active on Airspace. Congrats! If you’d like to deactivate your app, you can mouse over the Active tiles and select 'Deactivate'. Deactivated versions will appear in the rightmost Inactive column, and can be reactivated if you wish by mousing over the tile and selecting ‘Reactivate’.
Here’s a more fully populated view. In this example, versions 1.0.0 were submitted, accepted, and activated. Versions 2.0.0 were then submitted, accepted, and activated, which in turn deactivated the 1.0.0 versions automatically. Versions 3.0.0 were then submitted and returned. Versions 4.0.0 are still in Draft state and have yet to be resubmitted.
To reduce clutter, only the most recent information in each row will appear. For instance, once versions 4.0.0 have been submitted, accepted and activated, those tiles will appear in the Active column, and the Returned tiles for version 3.0.0 (now outdated) will no longer appear.
Of course, all of this historical version information is still accessible in the list format that you’re already familiar with. You can click on ‘Submission Details’ to see it.
Also: clicking into the main body of any tile will pop up a handy info pane.
We would love to hear your feedback on the new Submission Portal – please let us know what you think!
