Creating an app
On Kintone Portal, click the Create App button located in the Apps section.
Click Create App from Scratch. The screen transitions to the form setting screen of the new app.
Enter any name for the app. In this example, enter "Daily Report" into the input field for the app name. You can change the app name afterwards on the App Settings screen.
You can click on the app's icon to change it to a different one. It is also possible to change the icon after you create the app.
From the list of fields on the left side of the screen, drag a field you want to place on the app form and drop it to the right area.
In this example, place "Date," "Created by," and "Text area" fields on the app form.
You can expand the width and height of the fields you have placed on the app form.
Duplicate the "Text area" field to add two more fields of the same type.
Hover over the upper right side of the field. When the Field Settings icon appears, click Duplicate.
Change the name of the fields you have placed.
Hover over the upper right side of the "Text area" field you have placed. When the Field Settings icon appears, click Settings. Enter "What you've done today" in the Name section and click Save.
Repeat this step to change the field name of the other two fields. In this "Daily Report" app, change the name of the other two fields to "What to do tomorrow" and "Your Thoughts / What you've learned" respectively.
Click Save Form on the upper left side of the screen to save the app form.
To publish the app on your actual environment, click Activate App on the upper right.
Changing the app's settings
You can change the App Settings of the created app whenever you want.
To change the App Settings, click the App Settings button on the upper right side of the "View" screen.
Make changes on the "App Settings" screen.
