Basic Settings

Within this General Settings tab, you can set the following basic settings for your app.

Name

Name your app anything that makes sense to you. This setting is required. 

Once your app is named, the domain information will not be updated should you ever choose to change your app's name. To change the domain information, you must manually update your app slug within your app's domain settings

Description

You may optionally choose to provide a description of your app for your own reference. Providing an app description can be helpful when you have multiple apps and need to track the purpose of each app. App descriptions are for your own reference only. 

Date Format

By default, the date formatting for your app is set to MM/dd/yyyy (02/15/2010).

Time Zone

This setting will determine which timezone to convert your app's date and time fields to. The default timezone is GMT

When setting dates and times in your app, values will be converted to your app's selected timezone. For instance, if you create a record rule to set the date/time to current date and time, your app's selected timezone will be used to convert the current date/time to your (the server's) timezone.

Advanced Features

You can configure the following settings to set some advanced features for your app.

Read only

Enabling the Read Only feature can be helpful while your app is still in development, in demo-mode, under maintenance, or during any time in which you wish to disable anyone from adding or editing any records within your app.

For instance, Tadabase enables the Read Only feature for all of our template apps to ensure that users can view and interact with our template apps but not edit, add, or delete any records on these demo apps.

When enabling the Read Only feature, you can also set a custom message to display whenever a record change is attempted while the app is in Read Only mode.

Alpha features

New features are constantly rolled out to the Tadabase builder to continuously improve the ease and speed of your app building experience. To provide best user experience, newly released features undergo a 2-stage process before being officially released to the builder. The first stage is Alpha, when features are in production, followed by the second stage of Beta, when features are ready for testing.

Features in alpha are "raw", are not recommended to be used within your apps, and support is not offered for alpha features. At default, alpha features are disabled within all apps, however users who wish to test-drive alpha features can choose to enable them by enabling the Alpha Feature setting.

Show created with badge

On the bottom right-hand side of each page on your live app, users will see a "Created with no-code using Tadabase" badge.

You may choose to remove this badge from your app by changing the Show Created With Badge setting to No. Changing this setting to "No" will remove the badge from displaying on your app as well as remove the badge from displaying within your app's source code as well.

The "Created with no-code using Tadabase" badge can not be removed/disabled during the trial period. 

Default App

The default app refers to the app that will be used when your Tadabase subdomain is used without any app name specified. You can set the current app to be your default app by enabling this Default App setting to Yes

2022-03-07_22-01-15.png

Each of your apps work with either a Tadabase subdomain or your own domain. A sample subdomain is mycompany.tadabase.io. However, when using a subdomain, each subdomain can be associated with all the apps in your account. Therefore, users must also specify the name of the specific app they are trying to visit. For instance, mycompany.tadabase.io/my-app-name. By setting a default app, you can designate a specific app to route users to, even when they do not specify a specific app name. 

Don't forget to also set a default app homepage for your app! Click here to learn more about default app pages.

Require Version Comment

Toggle this option to require version comments when changes in the page builder are saved.
