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 App Designers list. You will then see the following dialog:
|Create App Designer Dialog|
|Enter Email||Enter the user’s email address. Once enough of the address has been typed in to identify the user, their full email address will display just below the Enter Email field. Select the name.|
|Role||The role will be set as App Designer.|
|Email Message||By default, the selected user will receive an email message alerting them that they have been added to the App Designers for this application. The basic email contains all the requited information, but if you would like to add a specific message to this email, add the text to the Email Message field.|
The following video outlines assigning application designers:
