Your Cuseum Account

Your Cuseum dashboard is your content management system (CMS). What exactly is a CMS? The CMS is cloud-hosted application that allows you to edit, delete and publish content in an intuitive, easy-to-use format.
In the next tutorial of this guide, we'll take a quick tour of your dashboard.
Your Test App
The preview app is essentially a test version of your app that is not available to the public. The app is synced with your dashboard, so you can test out any changes you make in real time.
Upon creating your account, Cuseum sends you an email with a link to download the preview app on your phone. Didn't get the email? Contact us.
Later in this section, you'll learn how to enable the preview app to work on your iPhone.
Basically, beacons are tiny transmitters. With Cuseum, you can associate a beacon to a physical object or location in your museum. The beacon can then prompt a mobile notification based on a visitor's location in relation to that physical object.
