Best approach for creating a configuration/setting page for an app?

What is the best way to create a UI page where users can change some settings/configuration values which is further used in the app? Like a setting page on a mobile app where you can change some settings.

E.g. I have a case type where I use a declare expression to calculate a field. Part of this declare expression uses a norm value which can change over time. Instead of using a static 'hard coded' value, I want to put this value as a field on some page where managers can change it them self and point the declare expression to this value.

I know this is possible by delegating this particular declare expression, but i'm looking to create a single UI page where I can put al these kinds of configurable fields for Managers to change by them self.

I was thinking of having a Data Type with a local data storage containing all these fields and pointing my expressions, data transforms etc to values of this local storage using a data page. Then I could create a section which presents the current local values for the Data Type and users could change these values and by using an activity I could perform the changes to the local data storage.

But is this the best approach to implement this requirement? Or are there better methods to achieve this?
