Manage model-driven app settings in the app designer

App settings define important details about the app, like its title. You define app settings when you create an app. If you want to change those settings later, you can do that in the app designer.


You must select Publish to activate an app settings change.

  1. In the app designer, on the left pane, select App under the Pages section. Or alternatively, select Settings on the command bar.

    Advanced settings Welcome page This option allows a maker to select from the web resources available in your organization. The welcome pages created can contain information that's useful to users, such as links to videos, upgrade instructions, or getting started information. The welcome page is displayed when an app is opened. Users can select Do not show this Welcome Screen next time on the welcome page to disable the page so it doesn't appear the next time the app starts. Notice that the Do not show this Welcome Screen next time option is a user-level setting and can't be controlled by administrators or app makers.
