User Preferences

The User Preferences page enables administrators to manage preferences for the User Record. Administrators can configure which Reasons for Change, User Types, User Subtypes, User Statuses, On Leave Types, and Termination Reasons are available when modifying the User Record.

The Reason for Change functionality is only available if Effective Dating is enabled for the portal.

To access the User Preferences page, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences > User Preferences.

Reasons for Change

Reasons for change are pre-defined with default names and types so that specific functionality can be associated with reasons within the system.

See User Preferences - Reasons for Change.
