App Settings Element

App Settings is a gh-element that allows users to open settings of the current application. More precisely, it is a special button that opens a view with all the options of the application. There, the user can change any application settings and apply them.

Note that the application settings will be applied only if the user is the Admin or Owner of the current application.

The application settings are divided into four groups:

  • Icon - allows you to select an image on the application icon. It have two tabs where you can select a GudHub icons or an emoji.

    Application icon selection

  • Background - here you can select the color of the icon background. It offers you to choose a background from ready-made styles or even remove the background.

    Selection of application icon

  • Icon Color allows you to choose the color of the previously selected icon from a set of ready-made colors.

    Selection of icon color

  • Main Settings are responsible for displaying, naming, deleting, and accessing the application.
