How to Switch an App to Development Status

Sometimes you use one or more of the Apps you create in ConvertLoop for testing. We recommend to switch your testing Apps to Development status to use them without getting billed. Keep reading to learn how.

What is the Status of a ConvertLoop App?

The Status of a ConvertLoop App is related to the mode in which you are using your App, if it is being used for testing purposes or not. An App in ConvertLoop could have one of the following two statuses: Production or Development.

Choose the Development Status for all the Apps that you are going to use for testing. Keep the Production Status for the Apps that you plan to use in Production, to communicate with your users.

Why is the Status of your Apps important?

All of the ConvertLoop Apps are in Production status by default.

Your App’s Status determines whether you are using it for testing, or to communicate with your users. All the Apps with Development Status will never be charged, but you can not send messages with them.

How to check what is the current Status of your Apps

To check the current status of your Apps sign in to your account and go to Manage Applications. You will see a list of all your Apps and a column with their current Status.
