Botsociety Custom CSS

Custom CSS allows you to customize anything in your generic channel, by writing special CSS code and inputting it in Botsociety. You can now create a mockup of your mobile app or website that looks exactly like you designed in Figma or Sketch. It is a very powerful feature. You will need to know a little bit of CSS coding in order to use it correctly. You can check out our documentation here. If you can’t code in CSS don’t worry — you can always ask in our forum and the team will help you out.

Custom button border is exactly how it sounds: You can pick an arbitrary color and apply it to the border of your buttons. To get started, open the menu ‘Settings’ on top while designing for your own mobile app or website.
