Abstract

Each user has access to the Personal Settings tab, which enables the user to specify preferences for a variety of settings that affect his or her user experience.

Introduction

From a configuration perspective, you may need to access a user’s personal settings for troubleshooting purposes. For instance, if a user is having a technical issue, you can use the Personal Settings tab to make yourself a proxy user and access the user’s application to find and resolve the issue.

You may also access a user’s Personal Settings tab to enable or disable system features to enhance performance.

The Personal Settings tab contains several screens that provide access to a number of user-specific settings, including password, proxy user and interview schedule settings. From a configuration perspective, you can change any of the settings; however, users can override your changes.

Important: To change a user’s personal settings, you must access the Personal Settings tab from the Manage Users: User Details screen. If you simply select the Personal Settings tab, you display personal settings for your own login.

The following configurations are included in the Personal Settings:

  • Contact Information and Password Settings
