While most of our customers prefer to have their branded app submission managed by Guidebook (full-service app submission), a common question is whether our clients can manage their own submissions. While we do enable a self-service option, it’s generally easier to add Guidebook to your developer account team—that way we’re able to manage all of the necessary credentials and app updates. Regardless of whether you choose to proceed with a self service or full service app submission, you must have a current, active Apple Developer membership.
Full Service App Submission
If you would like to add Guidebook to your developer account so that we can manage the app submission process on your behalf, please reach out to our support team. Allowing us the ability to submit the application under your account provides us with the ability to update your application and create the necessary credentials to build and submit the app, in addition to push notifications. You can add this user to your account by following the “Setting Up an App Store Connect User” section.
Once you have added the user, you will also need to send the Team ID for the account to your point of contact at Guidebook. Your Team ID can be located in the Membership section of the Apple Developer website.
Self Service App Submission
If you do not want to add the Guidebook user to your team and would like to manage the app and its associated credentials yourself, please follow the documentation to re-sign your app for iOS.
Once the app has been signed, you’ll find many helpful resources provided by Apple on their Developer site. If you would like to complete the app submission process on your end, the following articles are a good starting point:
