  • User configuration

    If you click on the button configure user settings you can set a default organization configuration for your users and groups. The modifications of this configuration may influence the configuration of the groups and users in your organization. You decide which options are available to the groups or users in each setting. You can reset the changed options by clicking on the reset button.

    You provide the setting rights by giving them:

    1. The possibility to hide settings: the user cannot see them.
    2. The possibility to see some settings: the user cannot change them.
    3. The possibility to let the user edit the settings.
    4. The possibility to enforce options. Each setting has several options. If you want to enforce them, just check the box: Enforce. The settings will only be visible to users: they cannot change them. We will use the seeting Languages as an example to demonstrate how this works. First, you have the possibility to choose one of the following options: English, German, Spanish, French. When you enforce one of the languages, then the user will not be able to change them. The setting Languages will therefore only be visible to this user and will not be editable.
