Options

The Options drop-down only displays on My Account - Preferences pages. Also, the drop-down only displays if there is at least one option available to the user. The following options may be available in the drop-down, depending on the user's permissions and the preferences configured by the administrator:

  • Change Email Address - Select this option to change your system email address. This email address is used to send notifications and reminders from the system. You must enter the new email address twice to ensure it is entered correctly. Note: If this option is not available, it is because it is not enabled by the system administrator in Email Preferences.
  • Change Password - Select this option to change your system password. A pop-up appears with the system password requirements. You must first enter your current password, and then enter your new password. You must enter the new password twice to ensure it is entered correctly. Note: If this option is not available, it is because it is not enabled by the system administrator in Password Preferences.
  • Edit Security Questions - Select this option to edit your security question responses. These responses are used to verify your identity when resetting your system password.
  • Share Permissions - This option is only available to managers and administrators. Click this link to share managerial permissions with others. See Share Permissions.
