Security: App Designers

We need to be able to define who should have the ability to change the design or settings of the application. Users are not created in AppBuilder, but we do need to tell AppBuilder who should be a designer of the application. To do this we need to add the desired users as App Designers.

To access the App Designers screen, go to: Edit App > Security > App Designers.

App Designers Screen

To add a new user as designer of the application, click on the + Add Designer button at the top of the list. Then, you will then see the following dialog:
