Contact Activities are designed to make it easy for users of your app to get in touch with you. You can decide what contact details to make available, but for the best results, give your users as many choices as possible. Choose from Phone, Email, Website and Address - each is interactive! Users can also easily add your information to their contacts with a single click.
To add a Contact activity to your project: start editing your project and go to the Activities tab. Under 'Your App Activities' click the + Add an Activity button and select Contact from the list.
Now let's take a look at the Contact Activity settings.
The name that you want to give your activity. This will appear on the dashboard, toolbar, and navigation drawer. It can be whatever you want but should probably describe what it is used for. For example "Contact Us".
A few words describing this activity. This subtitle text may be displayed on the dashboard if the dashboard's item style supports it.
A longer paragraph describing this activity. This description text may be displayed on the dashboard if the dashboard's item style supports it.
This is a relative index that controls the order of the activities in your application. The position will effect where your activity is displayed on the dashboard and navigation drawer. For more information on this setting please read: How to change the order of the icons on the dashboard.
