Add-on Manager

Introduction

Add-ons are small applications integrated to Easy Forms for sending data collected by forms to third-party applications.

For this guide we will use the Google Analytics add-on as an example.

Note: @app refers to the application root directory.

Install an add-on

Install an add-on is a very simple process.

  1. Upload the Add-on folder on your server and host it in @app/modules/addons/modules. For this example, the folder should be in @app/modules/addons/modules/google_analytics.
  2. Go to the Add-ons Manager by clicking on Add-ons of the navigation bar
  3. In the Add-ons list you should see the add-on name: Google Analytics, plus its version and brief description.
  4. Select the checkbox of the add-on to install: Google Analytics.
  5. Click Bulk Actions and then Install

The Add-ons manager will reload and Google Analytics Add-on will be installed.

Note: You do not have to download the Google Analytics add-on, is included in the application.

Disable / Enable an add-on

When an add-on is disabled, the add-on stops sending data to third party applications and access to their management pages is restricted.

  1. To disable an add-on, go to the Add-ons Manager.
  2. Select the checkbox of the add-on to disable.
  3. Click Bulk Actions and then click Disable.

The Add-ons Manager will reload and the Add-on will be disabled.

The process to enable an Add-on is virtually the same. You only need to select the action Enable, instead.

Note: When an add-on is installed and running, you can access it by clicking on its name.

Uninstall an add-on

When you uninstall an add-on, not only stops transmitting data to third applications and restrict access to their administration pages. It also deletes all the information related and stored by the add-on during its use. This information cannot be recovered.

  1. To uninstall an add-on, go to the Add-ons Manager.
  2. Select the checkbox of the add-on to uninstall
  3. Click Bulk Actions and then Uninstall

Then it will show a popup asking you to confirm your decision to uninstall the add-on.
