About This Feature

Apps are the core building blocks of your community spaces and learning products. Disco offers a variety of app types, including curriculum, collection, feed, channel, events, content, external links, and integration embeds for your favorite tools. These apps help you design engaging member experiences and connections for true transformation. 

 

How It Works

Apps are the modular building blocks you add into your community area and learning products. 

With Apps, you can: 

  • Create community spaces for discussions, events, content collections and more.
  • Build learning products like courses, circles, coaching and more.
  • Set access to define what members or group of members can see an app.
  • Use blocks associated with apps to create your community home and custom product dashboards.

There are nine types of apps:

  • Curriculum (Only available in Products)
  • Collection
  • Events
  • Feed
  • Channel
  • Content
  • Link (Custom, Product Link) 
  • Embed (Custom, Typeform, Calendly, Figma, etc.)

Important Considerations
