App configuration options

The App Builder offers several configuration options you can use to customize your application's look and behavior.

Configuration options#

The App Builder has a number of configuration options available:

Canvas dimensions (Canvas apps only)#

Height and width of the App Builder canvas, which is anchored to the top-left (i.e., changes will expand/contract down and out to the right).

Auto-run#

Setting which determines whether the app will automatically re-run every time a user changes an Input parameter. This may not be desirable for apps with a lot of time-intensive logic.

See more about scenarios where you may want to turn off auto-run mode here.

Cache app state#

Setting which allows users see pre-computed outputs upon load (versus waiting for a full app re-compute when they start a new app session).

These pre-computed outputs are updated by scheduled runs, making it easy to update the initial state a user sees on a regular cadence.
