Configuring Your Tulip Account Settings

Here are the different settings that Tulip Account Owners can configure for the entire Tulip account.

As a Tulip Account Owner, you have a few options for configuring overall settings for your company's account.

To access account settings, click your user icon in the top right of the menu bar, and then select "Settings".

You will then see the following tools.


Set up the different roles that need to approve new versions of apps (enterprise accounts only). See this separate guide for more details

Default Schedules

Configure the shifts that you use on your production floor so you can create app logic around shift numbers. See this separate guide for more details.


This is where you can set up a variety of default settings for apps. Here are the fields you can change.

Company Name: Set the official company name that should appear in apps.

Company Logo (Light): Set the company logo that should appear on dark backgrounds.

Company Logo (Dark): Set the company logo that should appear on light backgrounds.

You can also quickly add more Account Owners via the search bar:

Date And Time

The Date And Time tool allows you to choose the Default Time Zone, and Customize the Datetime Format.

To customize the Datetime Format, you need to toggle the enable button. You can select the dropdown for the options we offer.

You can choose the Date format, the Time to be a 24-hour or 12-hour clock, and the character that separates the date. This will change the date and time everywhere in the App Editor. You can see a Sample below of how it will look like

If the default options don’t work, you can completely change the format of the date and time by checking the boxes next to "Specify freeform format." Here are the supported datetime formats

Default Timezone: Set the default timezone to accurately track when apps are running. This setting can be overridden for individual stations in the Shop Floor tab. See this guide for more detail

Color Palette

The color palette tool allows you to pick colors that will appear in the color palette in the App Editor. To add a new color, click the color itself. Then, choose a color by dragging the selector, or inputting a specific hex code.

Then, click "Add Color" to make the color available in the color picker of every app.

You can then dynamically assign this to variables and tables using this guide


Mask Badge ID on Login: Conceal the badge ID that operators enter into the Tulip Player with * characters.

Hide App Completion Time in Player Menu: Prevent operators from viewing the amount of time spent in the app in the default Tulip Player menu.


Hide Error Messages In Player: Do not show any error messages to operator, ie when a table record fails to load or a connector function does not return a value

Hide "App Completed" and "App Canceled" Messages in Player: Do not show the operator a message when an app is completed or canceled

Automatically Log Out Inactive Users: If toggled on, the operator will automatically be logged out of the Player after a certain time interval since the last time they interacted with the screen. The default is set to 15 minutes, but it is customizable. This will cancel the run of the application so that it cannot be resumed by another operator.

Logout user when Player app is closed: If toggled on, the operator will automatically be logged out of the Player upon closing the Player app on a device. The logout will be enforced automatically 20s after Player is closed.
