magicplan Home Screen Symbols

A guide on different visual symbols and indicators used within magicplan

What are home screen symbols?

When logging into your magicplan app you will notice a variety of buttons to choose from that allow you to edit projects, your profile, or account settings. We refer to these as “Home Screen Symbols”.

We also use a number of visual indicators to let you know when important changes have been made to your workspace and projects.

Below, we have outlined all of the Home Screen Symbols so you may familiarize yourself as you get acquainted with magicplan. 

Top Navigation 

  1. Filter Button:
    • The magicplan cloud is where all of your projects can be synced and accessed. The filter button in the app allows you to see all projects that are on the magicplan Cloud or only projects that are saved locally on your device.
    • Options are "Device & Cloud" and "Device". "Device & Cloud" is the default when you download the app, and it allows you to see all the projects you have created and saved locally on your device and in the magicplan Cloud. "Device" only shows you the projects that are saved locally on your device. 
    • This can be useful if you manually sync your projects from the magicplan app to the cloud, or if you created a project in the cloud that needs to be downloaded to the app. Find more information on Cloud syncing here.
    • Note: The app will remember whether you last used the "Device" or "Device & Cloud" screen, so when you close and reopen the app, it will automatically open to the screen you were on previously.
  2. Plus Button & Search Bar:
    • Use the plus button to create a new project on your magicplan app!
    • Use the visible search bar to find projects within your app, cloud, workspace, or teams. 
  3. Workspace & Teams Filter:
    • Use this filter option to navigate between your various workspace and teams and to see the different projects that have been assigned to you. 
    • Find out more about Workspaces and Teams here
  4. Manage your projects by tapping and holding on the specific project, a pop-up menu will appear allowing you to: 

      • Upload or download your project from the cloud

      • Duplicate or delete your project
      • Move your project to a different workspace
      • Access the project's details
        Project Settings: Tap & Hold
