Run-time editing of sections in Pega Express
You can configure sections that were created by using a template to allow editing at run time. Run-time editing allows a Pega Express user to edit a section. Pega Platform developers can allow edit access to Pega Express users and business users who do not require the full section editing capabilities of Designer Studio.
Allowing run-time editing
When you create a section from a template, open the Settings tab of the section. Select the Allow Section to be edited at runtime check box and save the section. Sections created in Pega Express have this option enabled by default.
