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 like date and time format and time zone. Read more

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.

  • User Permissions - A user person who can access your application. Here you can create new permissions, and define roles based on your organizational hierarchy. Read more
  • Portal user permissions - A portal enables you to configure a portal for your users to log into their dedicated internal system and access restricted data. Here you can add new permissions for portal users. Read more

Data administration

Data administration involves the features for monitoring, maintaining, and managing data effectively. It allows you to control data assets and their usage.

  • Localization - Set the language for your users to access the application in and create custom translations for each component in the application. Read more
  • Record templates - Create customized templates for individual records. Read more
  • Contextual messages- The messages used in the Zoho Creator applications are generic and standardized. Contextual messages will allow you to replace these generic messages with custom messages of you own. 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.
