Orbify, a versatile platform tailored to streamline processes and amplify productivity, empowers users with a range of customizable settings. However, understanding and configuring these settings effectively is essential for maximizing Orbify's utility. In this guide, we'll embark on a detailed exploration of how to configure Orbify's settings with precision and proficiency.

Step 1: Access Orbify's Settings Section

Log in to your Orbify account.

In the top right, find the Settings section.

Step 2: Find the Application Section

Locate the "Application" section to access pertinent settings and configurations.

Step 3: Customize Orbify's Settings

In Orbify, customization is key to tailoring your experience. With three main categories of settings—General, Platform, and Explorer View—you have the flexibility to fine-tune your Orbify environment to suit your specific needs and preferences.

General Settings

The General Settings section serves as the cornerstone for customizing essential aspects of your application's identity. Here, you can effortlessly configure key details such as the application's name or URL.

Platform Settings

Platform Settings serve as the control center for tailoring the behavior of your platform to suit your specific needs. Here, you can fine-tune various aspects of platform functionality. Whether toggling the visibility of demo projects within the Geospatial Data Platform dashboard or configuring the default listing format for workspace projects, these settings offer a comprehensive toolkit for customization. Users can effortlessly set preferences such as automatically making new dashboards public or defining the publishing level for each dashboard creation. Additionally, the ability to specify the maximum size of permitted areas of interest ensures precise control over data management and resource allocation, enhancing overall platform efficiency.

Explorer View

The Explorer View settings within Orbify offer users precise control over the presentation and functionality of their application's mapping interface. With options to configure the default display of layers and the expansion of the layer list, users can tailor the Explorer view to meet their specific requirements seamlessly. By choosing to display all layers by default, users ensure that all pertinent data is readily accessible to viewers upon loading the application. Similarly, enabling the expansion of the layer list provides users with a comprehensive overview of available data, streamlining the exploration process.


Orbify offers you plenty of configuration options allowing you to align with your unique workflows and objectives: you have the flexibility to optimize every aspect of your Orbify experience! With the ability to fine-tune settings to your precise specifications, you can unlock the full potential of Orbify, transforming it into a powerful ally in achieving your goals.
