Usage
Here you can find instructions on setting up and using essential functionalities of the admin panel.

Suggestions

You can automatically suggest newly registered users to follow specific creators on your app in order to boost their followers and spice up the new user's following feed.
To do that, you can go to the Users page and click the green, Suggest button to add that user to list of suggestions. To remove or further manage the order of your suggested users, you can use the Suggestions page.

Discover

The discover page shows hashtag challenges and clip sections added via admin panel.
To manage challenges, you can add them through Challenges page and the app will automatically show all clips tagged with the challenge's hashtag when clicked on it.
Similarly, you can create clip sections from Clip sections page. Once created, you can add the desired clip to one or more sections directly from Clips page using the green action button. There's also a special behavior in clip sections that allow you to automatically add clips to sections containing a specific hashtag. To use that, you just have to add a hash "#" in your sections name #ny2020 etc. Then all future uploads with this hashtag will be added to this section.

News

The script features a dedicated news area in app to keep your users engaged with additional, in-app content. You need to create news sections first from the Article sections page and news articles later to those sections using the Articles page.
In addition, the script also supports automatically adding news articles from Google News if configured properly. To enable that, you can browse your desired topic on Google News, extract the topic's ID from the URL and enter it into the Google news topic field on the article section. For e.g., the URL for India topic is https://news.google.com/topics/CAAqIQgKIhtDQkFTRGdvSUwyMHZNRE55YXpBU0FtVnVLQUFQAQ?hl=en-IN&gl=IN&ceid=IN%3Aen and the topic ID from this URL is just the CAAqIQgKIhtDQkFTRGdvSUwyMHZNRE55YXpBU0FtVnVLQUFQAQ part. Also, add your local language code into Google news language field and save the section.
Then you can use the Crawl button on the article section details page to fetch new articles from that Google News topic. To automatically enable crawling of the articles every hour, make sure your have set up the cron job as part of server setup.

Gifts

In the gifting system, users purchase (in-app) credits for real money. Then those who have (in-app) credits, they purchase and send gifts using the credits to other users. The gifts recipient can then redeem the gift for cash.
Example:
  1. 1.
    You sell 100 credits for $100.
  2. 2.
    The user buys a gift (with price of 100 credits and redeem value of $50) using 100 credits and sends to a user.
  3. 3.
    The recipient redeems it for $50.
  4. 4.
    You make $50 margin profit.
To set it up, first please make sure your app is approved on Play Console and your payments profile is set up. Then the setup flow is as follows:
  1. 1.
    Create a credit package from Credits page and leave the Play store ID field blank for now.
  2. 2.
    Then go to Play Console > (app) > Products > In-app products and create a product with same details and pricing. You may choose any Product ID as per your liking.
  3. 3.
    Now go back to admin panel, edit the previously created credit package and update the Play store ID with the one you chose in Play Console.
  4. 4.
    Then go to Items page to create giftable items.
