Application Manager

The application manager is the central location where users can find all their applications. This includes applications created and owned by, or those shared with the user.

Grid View

List View


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 and to choose a default language. It also provides the option to set additional languages as well.
Note: Users can add more languages at any time using the Audio Manager.


Click the button to save the desired settings. Fuse then redirects the user to the workspace of their newly created application in the Application Editor.


Viewing Applications

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

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

For each application, Fuse indicates the application owner, allows users to navigate to the application editor to make changes to the application, provides access to the revision manager, and gives users the option to share, clone, or delete the application.



1. Searching Applications

Users can search for specific applications using the application name or the phone number associated with it. Type the search criteria into the search box to find the desired application. The list of applications dynamically updates based on the search text string. Fuse searches across all folders in the application manager.


2. 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' option updates the application manager sorting order.

Fuse automatically remembers user view preferences for the application manager and will use the same display the next time the user logs in to the platform.


3. Filtering Applications

By default, the application manager displays application owned by, and shared with a user.
To limit the displayed applications to those owned by the user, select the “My Applications Only” option in the drop-down.


4. Display Mode

Users can choose to display their applications in a Grid View ( ) or in a List View ( ).
By default, Fuse displays all applications in Grid View.


Note: Fuse automatically remembers user view preferences (e.g. Sorting and Display Mode) for the application manager and will use the same display the next time the user logs in to the platform.


Managing Applications

Fuse displays each application and the information associated with it on a tile in the Application Manager window. Clicking on the thumbnail (Grid View) or name (List View) opens the application in the editor.

List View


1. Owner

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

There are 3 different indicators for an owner:

  1. The application is owned by you, but not shared,
  2. The application is owned by you, and is being shared with others,
  3. The application is owned by another user and is being shared with you.


2. Deployment Information

This indicates that the application is currently deployed.
Hover over the icon ( ) in grid view to display the phone number and revision of the deployment.


3. Application Options

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:

1. Moving to a Folder

To move the application to a folder, click on the Move To… icon ( ), and select a destination folder for the application.


2. Renaming An Application

To rename the application, click on the rename icon ( ) and type in the new application name.


3. Opening An Application

To open an application, click on the 'open' ( ) option 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. Available revision details 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 to 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 to share the application 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 it 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:

  1. Application Name
  2. 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 delete ( ) icon.
Fuse opens a confirmation window and users can proceed with deleting the application or canceling the operation.



Creating a New Folder

To create a new folder, click on the 'New Folder' button, type in a folder name and press enter.

Folders can be used to organize your applications, for example, to differentiate between working and in-production applications.


Viewing Folders

To view a specific folder, click on the folder icon ( ).



1. Folder Tree

Clicking on the folder tree icon ( ) lists all the folders in your account.
To jump to a folder directly, click on the folder name.

To see nested folders, click on the right arrow ( ) to reveal any sub folders.


2. Directory Breadcrumb

The directory breadcrumb will indicate the current folder you are viewing.
The current folder is the last in the list and highlighted in purple.
Clicking on any of the previous breadcrumbs will direct the application manager back to that folder.

The example below displays My Folder, which is under the default folder home.


Managing Folders

1. Folder Options

Clicking on the gear ( ) icon in the upper right corner of a folder tile displays a list of options and actions for that folder.
These include:

1. Moving A Folder

To move one folder into another folder, click on the Move To… icon ( ), and select a parent folder destination to move the selected folder.


2. Renaming A Folder

To rename the folder, click on the rename icon ( ) and type in the new folder name.


3. Opening A Folder

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


4. Sharing A Folder

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

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

Sharing a folder shares all sub-folders and applications contained within that folder. When sharing a folder with another user, Fuse creates a folder with the same name and hierarchy in that user's account.

For more information on sharing, see Sharing An Application.


5. Deleting A Folder

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

Please note: deleting a folder will delete all applications and sub-folders contained within that folder. Make sure that total deletion is the intended operation before confirming the deletion of a folder.
