The Gallus admin dashboard makes updating content in your custom-branded mobile app quick and easy. In that spirit, we’re pleased to announce our new Simple Editor.

Many of our features previously featured a plain-text Body section, meaning app administrators could input simple sentences within a News item, Pop-Up, etc. Those looking to take the next step and control the size of the text, imagery within, and even add tappable links were left without a solution.

We’ve heard your recommendations and added an intuitive box above each content section so you can present your information, your way. Let’s dive into how it works.

What Is The Simple Editor?

The Simple Editor provides a number of text manipulation options above each Body content section of the Gallus admin dashboard. This functionality should feel familiar as you add any of the following functions:

Heading Text

This feature allows you to change the sizing of the text to delineate different sections of an item. You’ll notice that this blog post uses this concept for the different sections it’s discussing (What Is The Simple Editor?, Heading Text, etc.).

Use heading text to outline different upcoming events within a News item, instructors in a Page, or important concepts in a Pop-Up.

Bold & Italics

Make text stand out with bold text or clarify terms and conditions with italics.

Tappable URL's

Provide a tappable link to direct users where you’d like them to go. This powerful feature puts the control of what they see next in your hands. Here are three styles of links that can be used:

Use the format https:// followed by the web address to direct users to an external webpage.

Telephone Numbers
Use the format tel: followed by a phone number to direct users to the dialer on their mobile device with the number prefilled. Bonus points for putting a comma with the extension to bypass the phone tree!

Email Addresses
Use the format mailto: followed by an email address to send users to their email app of choice with the email prefilled.


Indicate deals with strikethrough text. For instance, you could say:

The cost of a membership is $200 per month NOW $150 per month!!

Bullet Points

Use bullet points to quickly summarize different features of your membership or lesson plans. Or indicate daily restaurant hours in a visual way:

  • Sunday: 10am-7pm
  • Monday: CLOSED
  • Tuesday: 10am-5pm
  • Wednesday: 10am-5pm
  • Thursday: 10am-5pm
  • Friday: 10am-9pm
  • Saturday: 10am-9pm

Numbered Lists

Similar to bullet points, numbered lists enable you to indicate specific steps that need to be accomplished. For instance, you could have a Page that outlines the steps to become a member:

  1. Take a tour of the facility.
  2. Meet with our membership coordinator.
  3. Apply for membership.
  4. Get accepted and start enjoying benefits!


Emoji provide a visual piece of content that paints a picture of what you’re trying to say. For instance, private clubs could have a daily News item with all of the events happening around the club:

Golf ⛳️
We are cart path only on holes 3, 5, 13, and 17. Enjoy your round!

Pool 🏖️
The pool opens at 10am and closes at 5pm.

Tennis 🎾

Image Uploads

Last but not least, you can now upload striking imagery directly into content to add a striking visual of your content. Show users a picture of your newly renovated restaurant or provide a photo of each of your instructors within a Page.

The new Simple Editor continues Gallus' commitment to delivering the easiest online dashboard in the golf industry. Our goal is to empower our app administrators to bring their vision to life.
