Understand application settings

The Settings section allows you to make application level configurations. You can view and change information about and change settings for your application. This section is separated into two categories.

Primary settings

The Primary settings section allows you to edit basic information specific to the application. You can define the face level settings of your application.

Advanced settings

The Advanced settings section allows you to make app-specific configurations such as adding application users, configuring the customer portal, code signing applications, backing up data, creating custom functions, etc. We have grouped the settings under four categories based on functionality.

Users and Control

This section allows you to configure and manage your application users and control the accessibility.

  • Users - A person who can access your application. You can invite users, set permissions, and define roles based on your organizational hierarchy. Read more.

  • Publish - Publish any component (Form, Report, or Page) in your Zoho Creator Application, or embed it in your website, blog, etc. Publishing a component makes it public, i.e., a user will not need a Zoho Creator account to access the component. Read more.

Developer tools

Developer tools are tailored for application developers to access the application structure, make changes, and test it before updating the live application.

  • Sandbox - Sandbox serves as a preliminary test environment for a live application. App developers can make changes or fixes in Sandbox which will be reflected in the live application only after it is published. Read more.
  • Relationship diagram- Display how the forms are related to each other within the application. Read more.
  • Application IDE - A built-in code editor that allows the application developer to make changes to the application's source code. Read more.
  • Logs -The usage log displays the record all of the interactions that users have in the application. It also displays limits for the total number of records, emails, schedules, SMS, and file attachments that can be used in your account. Read more.

Extensions and APIs<>
