The app marketplace
Last updated on: July 22, 2024

The App Marketplace is full of apps that help your business achieve specific goals. It only takes a few clicks to add any app to your account. Use the App Marketplace to add blogs, forums, online courses, and lessons to your site. Or improve your business automation processes with Companies, Deals, Surveys, Virtual Events and more.

You can search for what you need and learn about each app before you enable it.

It’s just as easy to remove apps from your account if you no longer need them.

This article will show you how to enable and remove apps and previews what you get when you add an app to your account.

  • To enable any app, you need to add a dynamic content package to your account first. Here’s how:
    • The package you need depends on the number of custom objects that the app includes. If the app you are trying to add requires more custom objects than your package allows, Ontraport will prompt you to upgrade.

Here’s how to add a package:

  1. Click here to go to your Account Details page.
  2. Click Add plan or Start trial next to “Add Dynamic CMS to your account,” and choose the plan that fits your needs.

Most apps add custom objects which are critical to the core app functionality. Some of these apps also add objects that are optional, depending on how you plan to use the app. For example, the blog comments object is only necessary for your blog app if you want to allow comment functionality on your site. Below you’ll find the objects that come with each app and if the object is required or optional.
