Buttons

Button Overview

The purpose of a button is to take a user to another page to get specific information, whether that be to a different page in the app, on the internet, or a 3rd party page (such as a lunch payment site). Some buttons are default buttons, and take users to other places within the app. These types of buttons cannot be deleted, nor can buttons that link to within the app be created.
