I am uploading a brand new app to Google Play, via Scriptoria. In Scriptoria, I can see in my app details that the State is Startup Workflow Completed (as of last night). I have nothing in “My tasks.”
In the Google Play Developer Console, the app status is “Draft.” In that app’s dashboard, I scrolled to the section called “Release your app”. It says “Complete the Initial setup tasks first” and “1 of 4 complete.” Below that:
SET UP YOUR CLOSED TEST TRACK
----Select countries and regions
CREATE AND ROLL OUT A RELEASE
----Create a new release
----Review and roll out the release
None of the four items are clickable, but the last one has a mouseover that says, “You need to create a new release before you can roll it out.”
When I click on “Releases overview” on the left menu, it says:
Open testing: Inactive
Closed testing: Inactive
Internal testing: Inactive
Latest releases: No results
In the Countries/regions section, for each country or region it shows two tracks- production, closed testing. When I expand a country, it says “Production, Alpha.” All 173 are selected.
What do I do now? How do I get my app to Production?
Thanks for your help.
(Side note: Here is a handy reference that defines all of the App statuses:
