How to install Letsencrypt cert on individual serverpilot apps

I have installed Letsencrypt certs on my droplet but I guess because of installing in its root I find that other serverpilot apps also expect certified domains. Is it possible to install and certify from individual serverpilot apps?

fyi as far as the server is concerned, serverpilot apps are differentiated by path e.g. /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/app1 and /srv/users/serverpilot/apps/app2

I have /etc/letsencrypt and /root/letsencrypt folders (I think due to duplicate attempts to install letsencrypt)
