Application Manager

The application manager is the central location where users can find all of their applications, whether those are owned by or shared with the user.

Creating a New Application

To create a new application, click on the button. This opens a dialog window that prompts the user to enter an application name, to choose a default language, and provides the option to set additional languages as well. Note: Users can add more languages later as well in the Audio Manager.

After setting these options and clicking the button, Fuse redirects the user to the workspace of their newly created application.

Managing Existing Applications

Users can sort, search, and filter the available applications in the application manager.

Each application listed in the application manager displays a thumbnail preview of the application, the application name, and the latest revision details.

Fuse also details who the application owner is, allows users to navigate to the application editor to make changes to the application, provides access to the revision manager, and gives users an option to share, clone, or delete the application.


1. Sorting Applications

Users can choose to sort their available applications by name or save date. By default, Fuse sorts applications alphabetically by application name. Clicking either the 'Application Name' or 'Save Date' buttons toggles between these two sorting options.

2. Searching Applications

To search for a specific application, use the search box to type either the name of the application or the phone number that the application is deployed to. The list of applications dynamically updates based on the entered text string.

3. Filtering Applications

By default, Fuse displays both owned and shared surveys to users. To limit the displayed applications to those owned by the user, select the “My Applications Only” radio button to the right of the search box.


Application Options

Each application and the information associated with it is displayed on a tile in the Application Manager window. Clicking on the gear ( ) icon in the upper right corner of an application tile provides a list of options and actions for that application. These include: Edit ( ), Revisions ( ), Share ( ), Clone ( ), and Delete ( ).

1. Owner

This icon indicates the owner of the application. Hover over the icon ( ) to display the name of the application owner.

2. Deployment Indicator

This icon ( ) indicates that the application is currently deployed.

3. Edit An Application

To edit an application, click on the 'Edit' ( ) option that appears under the gear icon, or simply click on the preview thumbnail image or application name.

4. Revision Manager

To manage revisions, click on the clock ( ) icon. This opens the revision manager, which provides a detailed list of application revisions for that application that includes the Title, Version, Save Date, and Deployment Status of the application. There are also options to edit or delete each revision.

5. Sharing An Application

Users can only share applications with other users within their account. For more information see the Users & Sharing section.

To share an application, click on the share ( ) icon. This opens a pop-up window that contains a field for entering another users email address.

It's important to be aware of the permissions associated with sharing apps. If you are sharing with a user who has the ability create apps, the options for View Apps and Clone Apps are automatically enabled and cannot be changed. If the user does not have the ability to create Fuse+ apps, the Clone Apps option will be unchecked and similarly unable to be changed.

Click the ( ) button to add the users to the application. Repeat this process until the application is shared with all desired users. After clicking the ( ) button, Fuse adds the new user to a table in the same window.

You can also grant shared users the ability to access the audio manager for your application. The manage audio option is unique because gives users the ability to manage the audio in the original application. This is the only sharing option that allows other users to make live edits to an existing application they do not own.

6. Cloning An Application

To clone an application, click on the clone ( ) icon. This opens a pop-up window that contains two input fields, both are required: application name and application revision. By default, Fuse suggests the name of cloned application as “application name (clone)”. Change the application name as desired. The 'Revision' option provides a drop-down menu with a list of all the revisions of that application. Choose the specific revision to be cloned and then click on the button to finish the process.

7. Deleting An Application

To delete an application click on the trash can ( ) icon. Fuse opens a confirmation window, and users can proceed with deleting the application or canceling the operation.
